North Carolina Pastor Fired For Attending Rick Ross Concert


Pastor Rodney Wills was voted out of Mt. Salem Baptist Church for attending a Rick Ross concert in his local North Carolina area.

Rev. Wills was removed from the church when several of his peers came to the conclusion that they didn’t need his services anymore. The 14 deacons met last Saturday and voted 11 to 3.

When Rev. Wills came to church Sunday morning, he was in shock to see his parking sign taken down, as well as his name removed from his office.

“We cannot have our leader supporting people of this world who are tearing down the kingdom of God,” said Deacon Miles Langley.

According to Deacon Langley, Rev. Wills attended a Lil Wayne concert nine months ago. Many of the youth and young adults spotted him and told the deacons at Mt. Salem.

“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.,” said Deacon Langley.
