Every good golfer knows that the best game is slow and steady–or as I’d like to call it “boring golf!” The goal is to hit the ball straight into the fairway, up on the green, and one putt in. Seems simple, right? However, if you have ever played golf before, you would know that this is actually very difficult to do!
Much like a great golfer, I liken my faith to that concept: Slow and Steady wins the race. In sports, in life, and in our faith walk. I want to leave a legacy of stability and an example of strength in moving confidently with the timing of God. I would rather build my faith, my ministry, and my relationships on a solid foundation in which I am always growing.
I want to be known as a man and as a pastor who has stood the test of time and finished my race for faith diligently and quietly with humility and steadfastness. I pray for God’s covering to stay off of satan’s lying lips: no drama, no breakups, drugs or divorces. By staying on fire for Jesus, I let him sort out the messes in my life, and keep my eyes focused on his plan and purpose.
It is very common in our culture to get off track of our God-given mission by looking to the left or the right, and being distracted with what everyone else is doing. We get caught up focusing on the next big conference speaker or popular worship band, all the while forgetting that God has a plan just as important for our lives! You are an original, created BY God, FOR God! No one else can fulfill your purpose but YOU!
My advice to every christian to keep a slow and steady pace of faith:
~Stay hot for Jesus. Keep your focus on Him first.
~Stay in your lane! Don’t get caught looking to the left or the right. God has called you to your pasture for a season and a reason. Stay there!
~Remember what gets hot quick gets cold quick too. Steadfastness and humility go a LONG WAY! You may never be the next big conference speaker or televangelist, but you can be the greatest pastor to those 100 people that you shepherd!
“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world!” Don’t ever take that for granted! Run your race with diligence and watch God bless you in the littlest things!
I don’t know about you, but being the biggest pastor in the world and losing it all because I couldn’t handle the pressure (insert whatever reason here) doesn’t sound like much fun to me! Call me boring, or call me “safe”, but I would rather be a faithful pastor of few than the unfaithful pastor to many.
Now, let’s set our intention and all go play some boring golf together! Foreeee!
Carra Crouch, daughter of Paul Crouch Jr., and granddaughter of Trinity Broadcasting Network founders Jan and Paul Crouch, filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that she was given with alcohol and raped by a TBN employee when she was just 13.
Carra Crouch also accuses that her family, her grandparents, covered up the incident, rather than report it to authorities, to protect TBN’s reputation.
LOCAL PAPER REPORTS IT THIS WAY:
Carra Crouch, now 19, was distraught after the 2006 assault by a 30-year-old man, and told her grandmother what had happened. “Jan (Crouch) became furious and began screaming at Carra Crouch, a thirteen year old girl, and began telling her ‘it is your fault,’” according to the suit.
Carra Crouch then told John Casoria, TBN’s in-house counsel and her second cousin; he became agitated and told her that he didn’t believe her, it says. “He elaborated by stating he further believed she was already sexually active ‘so it did not really matter’ and he ‘believed she may have propositioned him,’ ” the suit alleges.
“Carra Crouch, just a thirteen year old "girl", [SEE PHOTO] had not been sexually active and was absolutely devastated about what happened and about how John and Jan responded to her.”
Both Jan Crouch and John Casoria are ordained ministers, and as such, are legally required to report suspected child abuse to authorities under the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act, the suit says. No report was made, and TBN “deliberately covered up the incident to protect Trinity Broadcasting from negative publicity,” it alleges.
Carra Crouch was not permitted to talk to the police about the incident, and was not permitted to seek the counsel of any third parties or sex abuse counselors at the time, and has suffered severe emotional distress as a result, according to the suit.
Allegedly, TBN’s attorney, Colby May, said about Crouch’s allegations before the suit was filed.
“Trinity is stunned to learn of the latest allegations being made by Granddaughter Carra Crouch, coming more than six years after her initial report,” May said by email.
“And we have confirmed that Carra’s parents - Paul Crouch Jr., and ex-wife Tawny - are likewise just now learning of her latest accusations.
If your email accurately depicts Carra’s statement of events, be advised this is completely at odds with what she reported to her mother in 2006.
Had Trinity been apprised of this then, it would have immediately reported it to authorities. Trinity categorically denies any wrong doing and will, of course, fully cooperate with law enforcement in investigating Carra’s latest allegations.”
May said Wednesday that the complaint has not yet been served on Trinity, but that Trinity vehemently denies the allegations and believes them to be frivolous. Details of the incident provided by Crouch, and details in the suit, are “materially different,” May said, and “(m)oreover, Ms. Crouch’s allegations are completely at odds with what she told her mother.
These multiple versions undermine her credibility and support our position that Trinity has certainly done nothing wrong. Unfortunately, such meritless lawsuits have become commonplace in our society, and accordingly, Trinity will fully and vigorously defend itself.”
This suit — alleging sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence – is the latest, explosive salvo in a legal battle raging among TBN family members.
Carra Crouch is the younger sister of Brittney (Crouch) Koper who has accused the mighty Christian broadcaster of playing fast and loose with the ministry’s millions, and provided internal documents to back up her claims.
Carra Crouch’s lawyer is Michael Koper, Brittany Koper’s husband, who is himself the target of several TBN lawsuits claiming financial improprieties from when he worked at Trinity.
The Register does not usually identify victims of sexual assault, but Carra Crouch wants to tell her story so justice can be done, she said.
She didn’t cry when recounting the sequence of events that night, but she did cry when she recounted the aftermath. “I definitely feel angry,” she said. “Nobody once asked me, ‘Carra are you O.K.?’ Why didn’t anybody care? If I saw something like that happen to a little girl, even if I didn’t know her, I would dosomething.
And I’m their granddaughter. How could you just not care all?”ATLANTA TELETHONIn the spring of 2006, Trinity held its spring fund-raising telethon at its Atlanta studios. Carra Crouch accompanied her grandmother to Georgia for the event, according to the suit. Trinity paid for Crouch’s airline ticket, as well as a hotel room that she had all to herself.
The 30-year-old TBN employee, who Crouch had known for years, wound up in her room and ordered a bottle of wine from room service on Trinity’s account (“Trinity Broadcasting makes a regular practice of providing alcohol to its employees during business meetings”), the suit alleges.
He coerced her to drink it “in an attempt to get her intoxicated,” and she did, it says. She asked him to leave her room, and he responded by giving her a glass of water to “help her feel better.”Carra Crouch drank the glass of water and passed out immediately, according to the suit.
When she awoke the next morning, the man was lying next to her, there was blood on the bed sheets, and she had “severe pain and soreness in her body in places which indicated she had been molested and raped,” it alleges.
She locked herself in the bathroom and screamed at the man to leave her room, and returned to California that day.
That glass of water, Cara Crouch now believes, contained a date rape drug which caused her to pass out.
Despite whatever doubts officials may have had, Trinity soon fired the man that Carra Crouch accused of the assault, according to the suit.CasoriaCasoria, TBN’s in-house attorney, fired him over the telephone, saying Trinity had gathered enough evidence to terminate him with cause, that the evidence was “most probably sufficient to bring criminal charges” against him, and that Trinity would not disclose the evidence to the police if he would not file for unemployment, worker’s compensation or anEqual Employment Opportunity Commission claim, the suit alleges.“The actions and statements of the Participating Individuals were outrageous, intentional, unreasonable, and malicious. The Participating Individuals not only undertook these actions with, at the very minimum, reckless disregard of the fact that they would certainly cause Ms. Crouch to suffer severe emotional distress; the Participating Individuals undertook these actions with the intent and purpose to cause that harm to Ms. Crouch so she would not report the incident to the police or news media.“As adults, family members, and ordained ministers, the Participating Individuals were in a position of actual or apparent power over Ms. Crouch, and the Participating Individuals abused that position of trust and that relationship to protect Trinity Broadcasting’s interests.”Crouch’s best friend, Brooke Davidson, told us she learned of the incident after the two became friends about a year after it happened.
Cara Crouch carries tremendous guilt, Davidson said, internalizing that it was somehow her fault, and is only beginning to deal with things. Davidson has been telling Crouch for years that it could not have been her fault — she was a 13 year-old girl, and this was a 30-year-old man, Davidson said.
Brandon, Tawny, Carra, Paul Jr. and Brittany Crouch-Koper, Carra’s older sister, was already off to college in 2006.
When she returned, she noticed her sister had become more withdrawn, but didn’t find out the details until May of 2011, when Carra Crouch ran away.
“My sister has been down dark and dangerous paths,” said Koper. “She’s doing better, taking first steps of healing and recovery.”
Cara Crouch was working part-time at the Trinity gift shop until she was recently let go — part of the sweep of those close to her big sister Brittany, which included their father, Paul Crouch Jr., Koper maintains.
Crouch is now in cosmetology school, following in her best friend’s footsteps, and trying to move forward with her life.We’ll keep you posted on how things progress.
