After losing his building, Pastor Jerry Johnston starts over

When are people going to wise up!

Inside the hollow of one of Johnson County’s most massive churches, where thousands had dwindled to hundreds, no collection plates were passed.
No one walked up the aisle to be saved.
Last Sunday, it was just Pastor Jerry standing alone at the altar, in the light-colored summer suit he had worn two days earlier at his daughter’s beach-front wedding, convincing his followers it would be OK.
The bank would come in, he told them, take their building and everything in it — the cribs and chairs, playground equipment and pulpit — yet together, they would conquer this trial.
