Gary Petersen is NOT a pastor/The Rock Church Fraud Grandville Michigan
I will not refer to this man, Gary Petersen, as a pastor. He is anything but. The founder of The Rock Church, meeting in the Rivertown Crossings Mall in Grandville, MI, is a professional con man who has discovered that churches have a lot of gullible people in them who are easy prey for what he does: lie and manipulate peope for personal gain...all in the name of God. He did it to us and to some of our close friends. He made sexual advances to a man in our church. He is an evil manipulative man who has been removed from at least 3 churches now over many years, 2 of which I know were because sexual indiscretion with men. How many times does he have to get away with this before people will stand up and see him for what he is?
Now he is trying to set up shop for the 3rd time in the greater Grand Rapids area and draw in another group of unsuspecting "sheep." Oh yes, he is very good at what he does. He will tell you what you want to hear. He has 3 groups of people he sets up around him (1) his "friends"(the ones he tells what he wants them to hear or what they want to hear) who are kept in the dark totally about who he really is (2) the ones with all the money, he really likes you because that is how he pays for his lavish lifestyle (ask him how many different houses he has lived in since moving to Michigan, their locations, and how big they were/are) (3) the guy relationships he establishes to satisfy his homosexuality.
It doesn't surprise me he has been accused of stealing money from the latest church he worked in as a con man. Lying is a very big part of his game.
Hopefully this last move of his to found another church in the same area will be his downfall. It gives the opportunity for all who have been "bitten" by this venomous snake called Gary Peterson to stand up and speak out. If you call yourself a Christian and you know the truth about this man, speak up. He does not care about people's souls and he is headed for eternal damnation and is taking others with him. If we say we love God and the glory of His name, how can we allow this man to continue to deceive people like this? If you have personal knowledge of who/what this man is, don't let him deceive another soul.
I plan on telling anyone I hear (even total strangers) within earshot of hearing the words Gary Peterson or The Rock Church to run as far away as you can and fast!
