Celebration Church Pastor Announces Resignation Amid Bitter Legal Dispute

Said the church, 

Having founded Celebration, the Weemses over time came to act like they owned the church and could do with it what they wanted without the management and oversight required by Florida law and the church’s governing documents. When the current board of trustees discovered that the Weemses had engaged in a series of questionable financial transactions without board knowledge or authorization, they requested an investigation. Since that time, the Weemses have sought desperately to avoid the accountability and transparency that the church’s board is committed to pursuing for the glory of God and the advancement of His kingdom.

Weems concluded his letter saying, “My resignation from CCJ does not and will not affect with any claims that have or may be filed by me or Kerri Weems against CCJ trustees and officers or against any individuals or organizations associated with what I believe to be the illegal seizure of the institution and its resources.”

A civil court hearing on this case is scheduled for May 20.
