The Church was in Detroit Michigan. The Pastor had fully given his heart and soul in Ministry to the people of his Church and his community. Unfortunately the IRS paid him and his Church a visit due to a personal audit they had conducted on one of his musicians.
After 2 days of stringent review the IRS placed a 10 Million Dollar lien on the Church. In the board meeting the following Monday, the Pastor informed his board that they would continue to operate as the Church had operated in its 75 years of existence. His predecessor had “done it that way” and the current Pastor had been trained to “do it that way.”
