Bob Coy Scandals
Coy was charged in November 2017 with molesting a child, starting at the age of four and continuing into her teenage years. The girl went on to describe how she allegedly had been forced by the pastor to perform sexual acts on him and to subject her to other forms of molestation.
A police investigation was attempted, but little progress was made because after many attempts on their part to proceed with an investigation, the girl refused to cooperate with the police. She said she was waiting for others to come forward. Nobody else has accused Bob Coy of any abuse since April 2019.
She asked for the record of her accusation to be “deleted” about six months after the report was filed, after an “encounter with God” as she left the country and did not want to proceed with the investigation. The police informed her that as it would be illegal to do so, they were unable to do this. The former pastor was fired from his consulting job at a nightclub in South Florida, The Funky Biscuit, despite the fact that no charges were filed against him.
Bob Coy Quotes
Statistically speaking, giving in the church today is embarrassing at best. So, there needs to be a message, a movement that addresses the problem in this very prosperous nation that reminds us and reinforces the fact that God has blessed this nation and blessed us as a people for a reason, not to buy the next new car or a bigger house. God has blessed the United States of America so that we will purpose to reach out to others and in doing so accomplishing His Will, doing His work, and then He is glorified.
God and God alone deserves all the credit for the good that takes place in our lives.
There are some times you win, and there are other times you build character.
The safest place in life is in the hands of God, even when theyre punishing you.
