I am a retired registered nurse, and my wife is Rita Burgeson, a retired public school teacher of thirty years in our local community. We have bought, sold, and built houses and bought multiple cars in the over thirty years we have been part of the Word of Faith. We have never had to get permission to do any of this. We raised our children at Word of Faith Christian School, where they excelled academically and went on to higher education. We are so grateful to God for our church family and our pastors. It seems the accusers are describing a church I do not know. It is not the church I attend. I have never even seen the set of rules – that just proves how fictitious all of the other accusations are.
