Rodney Wills, 26, was relieved of his duties as the pastor of Mt. Salem Baptist Church in North Carolina after church deacons learned that he attended a concert headlined by corrections officer turned rapper,Rick Ross, reports Guardian Express.
Wills was the pastor of Mt. Salem for almost 4 years before the deacons voted 11 to 3 to cast him out into the world.
“We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God,” said Deacon Miles Langley.
“We know that many saints will have mixed opinions from our actions, but this is not how we do things here at Mt. Salem. We cannot have a pastor praising the world one minute then praising the Lord the next. Period,” Langley continued.
According to Langley, this isn’t the first time that Wills has been caught getting his diddy-bop on to questionable rap. Younger members of the church spotted him attending a Lil Wayne concert about nine months ago.
