"It looks as though it will take two years for us to have adequate earning power again, so we are looking for people who will help us monthly for two years," the e-mail said. "During that time we will continue as full-time students, and then, when I graduate, we won't need outside support any longer."
Haggard left the 10,000-member New Life Church late last year and resigned as head of the after a former male escort accused Haggard of paying him for sex.
Mike Ware, an overseer for New Life Church, told The Gazette of Colorado Springs on Friday that it was premature of Haggard to release the statement without first consulting the overseers.
A New Life spokesman did not immediately return a phone message left late Friday by The Associated Press.
Haggard received a salary of $115,000 for the 10 months he worked in 2006 and an $85,000 anniversary bonus before the scandal broke, The Gazette reported. Haggard's severance package included a year's salary of $138,000, and he collects royalties on his book titles, the newspaper reported.
El Paso County records show Haggard's home, which has been up for sale, has a market value of $715,051.

TV beggars! Yuck!
Can you believe the gall of this man? He did it without consulting his overseers for one thing, and secondly he has all that severance plus a 700K home to sell yet? What’s he spending it on? I hope no one is stupid enough to send him money, but I’m sure there’s a few.
I wonder if I can send him a check for a negative amount.
Maybe a bunch of people can send him two pennies in an envelope. Maybe that would get his attention.
Bold as Brass, isn’t he? I find his begging for alms disgusting.
He must need more crack cocaine and male prostitutes.
Adequate earning power? For what?
“Fear not, trust in the Lord” Jesus commands. Pray that Haggard actually learns what he professed for so long.
He can go flip burgers.
With the exception of the Rev. Billy Graham - is there another "tele-evangelist" that hasn't been caught up in one type of scandal or another?
> so we are looking for people who will help us monthly for two years,” <
Do you know anyone who wants to support a queer for two years?
I suggest nylon rope
Ahem - Billy Graham is no exception.
I read about this over coffee this morning. Anyone who has supported this false teacher needs to seek Truth, not flesh pleasing lies. Haggard needs to work with his hands, seeking the Lord to break his heart over the people he has led astray, rather than seeking to counsel folks.
WORTH REPOSTING,OUR ANNUAL BUDGET INCLUDING PASTORS SALARY IS 75K.PASTORS FULL TIME AND HAS TWO WEEKS VACATION.
Matthew 7:13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Matthew 7:14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. Matthew 7:16 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. Matthew 7:18 "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Matthew 7:19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Matthew 7:20 "Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Matthew 7:22 "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' Matthew 7:23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' (NKJV)
JUST RETURNED FROM OUR SUNDAY SCHOOL PICNIC,PASTOR THANKED THE LORD FOR HIS PROVISION AND I DID A 20 MINUTE DEVOTIONAL ON PRAYER.
THE EMERGENT CHURCH MOVEMENT IS A SHAM,READ MACARTHUR'S BOOKS,"ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL" AND "TRUTH WARS".

And he wants suckers to give HIM money?
Being a Democrat and supporting the President - isn’t on the same level of being a whore mongering, thieving, corrupt, lying hypocrite.
I will admit, it comes close — but not equal!
I can't say as I know anybody that would p*** on him if he was on fire.
I guess he’s not one of these word-faith people who can just magic money into existence.
Why not just ring up Paula for some cash? She has it all.
Excellent contrast alpha.
That could be, but Haggard has nothing to do with that movement. Emergent churches are not usually "megachurches."
When I was in seminary I had various jobs...one of which included cleaning bathrooms in a high tech factory. Humbling, but it helped pay the bills.
See the video “Jesus Camp”. This is a sad commentary.

This guy is hurting for money?
“With the exception of the Rev. Billy Graham - is there another “tele-evangelist” that hasn’t been caught up in one type of scandal or another?”
Yes, Mother Angelica!
Because gay hookers cost money.
I think that this very venue asks, no, begs, that it is populated with folks that will send in their last dollar to the guys with the best hair.
I submit that it is not the individuals, but the venue, that is abominable in the sight of the Lord.
I fercely differ that Billy Graham earned any reproach—particularly any significant reproach at all.
He would get off of an elevator earlier than his floor if he was alone and a woman got on alone.
That was just a sample of the integrity he followed in every area of his life to the best of his ability his whole adult life.
Thankfully, God is his score-keeper, not self-righteous, prissy, vain-glorious folks who think they have a right to look down a long finger at him.
I’m disappointed at your insinuations with this post, Alex.
And she needs a new man.
Technically, she is not a tele-evangelist
Sad... Sad... Sad.... Sad... SAD !!!
D. James Kennedy?
Absurd. Might be a little tough for them to find paying clients once they enter those fields too.
“He must need more crack cocaine and male prostitutes.”
He did Meth and got massages from a gay male masseuse.
Ya never know. Paula White is playing ‘spiritual advisor’ to a divorced pastor who is the son of a divorced pastor. She’s been divorced once before too, so has her husband. And here they go again. Still, apparently she’s advising this guy.
...Deceiving and being deceived...
Certainly Juanita Bynum will start advising abused women and continue talking about how to have a wonderful marriage...
And Haggard will advise young men struggling with their sexuality...
Ya know, back home where I grew up they made copper post cards.
The individuals too.
lol that’s not nice!
You caught that huh? That’s why I excerpted the END of the article and not the beginning. :-)
I must admit, I kinda liked Mother Angelica. :-)
John Macarthur. Though he isn’t a televangelist, I don’t know if his church services are carried locally though (L.A. — kind of a neighbor to Rick Warren and pretty obviously critical of him, among others).
