Danny Hodges Return Status Details Changed On Calvary St. Pete Church Announcement Page

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.

Calvary Church Announcement Page Before Alteration
Calvary changed the details about pastor Danny’s return sometime after this snapshot was taken

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! 😡

On Easter my thoughts were immediate, what now? I was crushed, we have Been-through 3 church splits since we became Christians and we felt blessed and finally safe to be in a church that had its priorities right, A church focused and that fed us nourishing food, offered missions and strong management and blessed in prayer. . Pryor to Easter we felt compelled to bring our friends and pulled our family in. I was and still I am connected to the ministries we serve in. We knew someday Danny would retire but we anticipated his plan would include preparation and… Read more »

It is time to stop. Stop asking questions because your questions only open the opportunity for half truth answers. In this blog there is much speculation. Some of it is very correct and some of it is very wrong. This is what happens when leaders are not honest, it becomes political and it feels like Washington DC. We don’t expect this from our Christian leaders, but that is what it is nonetheless. It is not the sheep that need to repent, but the shepherds that did not guard the gate and opened our church up to this. Danny has repented,… Read more »

CIMFGR: Thanks for the info. It needed to be told. There are some blanks but you have the bulk of it. Conversations need to be had by all involved.

“when leaders are not honest” “half truths you have been told.” ” You must support the leadership and there is new leadership now!”

The obvious question is: Why should we support ‘when leaders are not honest’ and ‘half truths’ have been told?

I think I did say it, if you can’t support the leadership at your church, go to another church. We would not be in this position if those in leadership who so disagreed with Danny had just left and gone to another church.

You were talking of the leadership and not the flock? Did not read it that way. Agreed. But, it’s more than going to another church, it’s finding a cushy new job that requires so little of you.

YES there is more to the story than any of us have been told but what makes you think you deserve to be let in on all of the details? Danny said he accepted the decision and for all you know he wants and needs the time off. You are a band of vipers spreading gossip. Get behind me Satan!!!!!

This is the last I am posting. Bob, there is nothing bad to hide here and it is not wicked for folks to want to hear truth. We live in a world where everyone lies, and it is not wrong to expect more at church. Here’s the basic time line folks. This is the truth and there is no intent to point fingers or accuse anyone…just to give the facts (Keep in mind Danny has confessed to alcohol issues, but has had nothing to drink for almost 2 years. He has confessed to anger problems over and over in his… Read more »

Are you the “Bob” that Sebastian keeps referring to in his messages? He’s mention Bob and Susan in two separate messages, so you must be pretty important, if you’re the Bob he’s talking to.

Nobody that I know was ever confused when Danny was in his pulpit. Confusion abounds now. God is not the author of that, but we know who is.

I believe that most all of us really love Jesus and the fellowship he has made us a part of. I pray that God will bless us, the congregations of Calvary Chapel worldwide, with a spirit of discernment that will recognize Truth no matter where it comes from.

FidoSysop, Identify yourself. Yes I am angry because of the sinful nature of this website. You are vipers spreading gossip and rumors and creating divisiveness in the church I love. If you have issues with individuals then go to them and stop this! You need to repent. For all any of us know you are a demon just seeking to separate our church and do not and have not ever attended. You offer nothing but gossip. You hide your identity. Who from Calvary should believe anything you say. Danny gave us his truth in his video. That is ALL I… Read more »
