Danny Hodges Removed From Calvary Chapel St. Pete Corporate Filing

Pastor Danny’s President Position in Calvary Chapel of St. Petersburg Inc removed as of 04/26/2017. This is according to Florida State Division of Corporations filing details. Danny has been listed as President of Calvary Chapel of St. Pete as far back as 03/02/1995.

We do not know specifically what “alleged deep sin issue or financial matter” Danny stands accused of. Certainly nothing that warrants banishment from the kingdom for up to a year, according to his video.

In the business world there is whats called a “hostile takeover” and Calvary is a corporate entity. More info on hostile takeover is here, though this ministry is not a publicly traded entity. We are speculating this could be what happened to our beloved Pastor Danny. According to this article hostile takeovers can happen to any ministry.

Also of interest is this: Brodersen splits from CCA; calls for new Global Network. The Calvary Chapel fracture was bound to happen, and now it appears Costa Mesa senior pastor Brian Brodersen is leading that split, calling for “like-minded” pastors to stand with him.

Over the weekend Brodersen quit his leadership position at the Calvary Chapel Association, and announced he is establishing a new Calvary Chapel Global Network. This network, he says, will be a place for pastors on his side of the split “be a part of something greater than our own local congregations.” Read more here, and here.

Nobody could teach the word of GOD better than Danny. He is a one of a kind reverend. He knew the bible better than most and could recite bible scriptures and verses from memory without opening his bible.

An incredible ordained man of GOD who will never be replaced. Calvary Chapel of St. Petersburg grew from a handful of believers meeting at Danny’s home to the huge (former Walmart) facility it is now.

Pastor Danny we all miss you and are praying for you. Find a new location and we will follow you! 😉

8 Thoughts to “Danny Hodges Removed From Calvary Chapel St. Pete Corporate Filing”

  1. S

    Two words- Brian Brodersen. Research it and the law suit filed on him. Rick Warren at Smith’s funeral invited by Brian. Brian watering down the Word. Hostile take over for sure. Research. ?

    1. Believe that person is from another Calvary Chapel. But thanks for your comment.

      1. S

        Yes he took over Chuck Smith’s position at CCCM and also got away from CC Assoc and formed his own CC Global Network. A letter went out in November to all CC churches warning them of this and suggesting they opt out as his new “movement” tends to water down the Word. This letter was sent the same month this all started happening with Pastor Danny. Might be why he asked for prayer for leadership in his video, but not for himself. All these documents are available online for viewing. Even the law suit filed on Brian yrs ago.

  2. TRUTH

    They are always plotting and deceiving the congregation. #protecting their huge salaries and perks. thieves

  3. Karen Coggeshall

    Excellent if you to post about the CC shake up and Brian Broderson wanting to “tone down” the message if only more people to look deeper into what’s really happening! And coming to a CC near you! Google it people!

    1. Yes to that. Probably has something to do with pastor Danny Hodges banishment from God’s kingdom. Those of us that know him know he is an “old school” bible teacher and will not water down the message!

  4. This is addressed to all Calvary Chapel St. Pete members who appreciate Danny and Wendy Hodges. My observations and comments are based on life experience, where I witnessed a severe church disagreement, thirty years ago in New Orleans. First of all, the “truth” will eventually come out (as it is beginning to now). The “truth” always becomes known. So relax, and just let it happen. Do not give rise to anger or frustration. Events to date (1 – the coup d’etat, 2-Danny’s exit, 3-Don McClure letter) were quite predictable. Trust me, the current CCSP “leadership” (Dave Dodge, Bob Cory, et al) have planned this circus for months now. They have planned for all scenarios, and are not alarmed or frightened of any events to date. It’s happening exactly as what was planned. Every jot and tittle. Again, friends of Danny Hodges should not be alarmed. Peace. By the way, I “am not” secretly speaking for Danny Hodges, although I believe that he’s a good Christian man, and a pretty decent pastor. It’s my opinion that the coup d’etat is “permanent”, and that Danny Hodges will never again be invited to CCSP on US-19 in St. Pete. Again, the coup d’etat organizers (Dave Dodge, Bob Cory, et al) have “story-boarded” this whole affair, and are several chess moves ahead of most of the congregation. Legally, they have made sure that Danny Hodges (and his potential supporters) are “locked-out”). Dave Dodge and Bob Cory (et al) “Crossed the Rubicon” on this sad betrayal many months ago. They know exactly what they’re doing. Exactly. So what should Christians and friends of Danny Hodges do now? It’s simple. Forgive and FORGET the bretrayal of a good pastor, Danny Hodges. Move on. Do what Christ said …. “shake the dust off your feet” towards Dave Dodge and Bob Cory, and just move forward. Is Christ Jesus able to bring “true” righteous judgement to ALL parties involved? Absolutely. So just let Jesus “take care of business” (as ZZ Top included in one of their songs). I believe that 365 days from now, Pastor Danny Hodges will be in the pulpit again, doing Christ’s work. He will be leading a successful ministry, as he has been ordained to do so for the last 35 years. All will be well. Again, FORGET the betrayers. Start a new church. Be happy. Be blessed.

    The same thing happened to the Pastor in Appleton, Wi at Calvary chapel! There is a big movement afoot and we know Satan is working overtime!!
    We pray for all and know Pastor Danny will come ahead of this.
