05/30/2017 Last Updated
Calvary Chapel St. Pete has changed their “Church Announcement” page regarding pastor Danny’s return status.
Is Danny returning to Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg?
Previously this paragraph read:
For a time, Danny & Wendy will be away from Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg in order to begin the healing process. We want to see Danny Hodges return to fellowship when Pastor Serve, the Board of Directors and the Pastoral Staff feel Danny is ready to. Our desire is to see him healed before serving the church again in any capacity.
Today it reads:
For a time, Danny & Wendy will be away from Calvary Chapel St. Petersburg in order to begin the healing process. We expect to see Danny and Wendy return to fellowship soon. The specific intent of the PastorServe process is not to return Pastor Danny to the pulpit, however, our desire is for Danny to serve the body after completing the PastorServe process.

Personally we don’t believe ccsp had any intentions of returning Danny to the pulpit. It’s also our opinion that PastorServe is being used as a middleman. Thus taking the heat off Calvary St. Pete church personnel who initiated this process.
It’s been said pastor Danny had too much power and controlled the church’s finances. Obviously that power has been taken away from him. Possibly someone wanted to do other things with the church tithes.
We’re thinking there has to be a whole lot more to this story that we have been told. Sneaky and Underhanded! 😡
