Good evening"God bless you all, I must say its very sad that people would judge pastor Rodriguez the way they do, he his a wonderful man of God, my family attended praise center church in the early 90"s my parents passed on to be with the lord during the time we were members and pastor Rodriguez and sister Francine would go to the hospital to pray with them, when they passed on praise center was there for us. Some of you should know, that pastor Rodriguez gave up his career to pastor a church that had just 15 people, I was one of them back in the 80"s as a result I'm sure thousand of people have been saved because he is doing what God has called him to do. You people who write things about him saying he lives Lives like a king" well he gave up his career where he could have been rich yes but he code to follow what God called him to do!! And don't be so envious because God had blessed him. He teaches heaven or hell no candy coated Christianity. You all cry about money well God dosent need your money. Our heavenly father owns it all if you don't want to give to the work of the lord then God will find people who will, his world is not our home we are just passing through so store for yourselves treasures in heaven don't be greedy or selfish. You should be praying for your pastor not talking about him behind his back. GODS WATCHING YOU ALL with that being said have a blessed evening I'll pray for u all Albuquerque,nm

First, let me say that I never, ever write reviews on churches. I happen to see "Janette and Tina's" review on PC and I must say that I am appalled at what these women posted! Janette and Tina....this is for YOU! In your posts about Praise Center and Pastor Rodriguez, you complain that it's all about money and what the church can get out of you. But then you go on to say that your major qualm is that they charged you money or they wouldn't give you something for free! Are you serious?! It seems to me that YOU were all about they money and what they could give you, your family and your friends for free! So everything you spewed about a servant of God is actually what you are saying about yourself. Ironic. By the way, I am an EX member that moved on. I believe that the Lord will sometimes place you in certain places for a season of your life and then you may have to move on. That is perfectly fine. But no matter what the reason for leaving a church, I would NEVER speak against a Pastor, a servant of the most high who has been anointed to Pastor the body of believers. Whatever issues I have/had is between me, the Pastor and GOD! It's not something that you post on the internet. Do you realize the severity of your actions and how sad it makes the Lord that you both are posting hateful things about a Pastor? Let the Lord deal with those who have hurt you or offended you. Do not retaliate by posting hateful, negative comments. I feel it is our duty as believers to hold one another accountable. And that is what I am doing with you both. Holding you accountable for an irresponsible demonstration of slander fueled by anger. Advise your family and friends to plan for their OWN burial and weddings, tell them to be financially responsible for their own lives. And since we're posting how WE feel, I'm curious....why didn't YOU both help those family/friends that were in need? If it concerned you so much....why not dig into your OWN pockets? It is not the Pastor's responsibility to fix their financial problems. By being financially responsible, when they request the services of the servant of God, they will be able to compensate him and thank him with respect and dignity. Nobody likes a freeloader, not even the church. In the grand scheme of things....what did either of you gain by posting such negative reviews? Did it make either of you feel better? You are essentially stating that Pastor Rodriguez is an angry person, yet YOU are the one spewing angry things on the internet....not him! LOL Wow! You state he's all about money, yet YOU are the one on here complaining about how he didn't give y'all any and how he didn't give y'all free services for funerals and weddings! LOL Again....WOW! I'll be praying for you, because you both seriously need to get y'all some "act right" and I'll be praying that you find peace because you are both without God's peace. (When a person has God's perfect peace, they do not feel the need to slander or manipulate or post negative things on the internet!) God's anointed are protected and they stand under the covering of the Almighty God. So watch yourself, because you will reap what you sow. All that anger can make you physically and spiritually sick. And I don't want that for either of you. I'll be more than happy to pray for y'all in person. Did I mention I also believe in keeping it real? LOL And MY review of the church is that Pastor Rodriguez is doing exactly what GOD has called him to do. He and his wife work hard at serving the congregation, through thick and thin, they have stood. God Bless you Pastors!

Praise Center used to be the most awesome place to go to worship the Lord. As a matter of a fact, it was a place that you never wanted to leave because it felt like home. When my son died, Pastor Rodriquez did the service and it was beautiful. My son loved Praise Center and Pastor Rodriquez. We were not charged for his service back then but recently we had a friends mom that passed away, who had been a member of the church for years, and they charged his family $350.00 for the service, which I think was not right. Pastor Rodriquez is an awesome preacher but when he is in his flesh he sometimes says hurtful things and does things that scar people against his church and him. I have had that experience with him and it is really hard for me to go to the church now and I am sure it has happened to many others. Even though, as christians, we are suppose to look beyond the faults and forgive, it is hard, as humans, to forget what hurtful things that have been done and as a pastor he should try to show more compassion since he is suppose to be the spiritual leader and an example to all. When Pastor preaches he is awesome and I have never found a more inspirational preacher. But we need to remember that we are to follow God and not a man, because a man will let you down. Praise Center Church used to be the best church in the world and I would have recommended it to everybody, but now I would recommend that if you are wanting to find a place to belong, and have a true spiritual relationship with God, this isn't the place to go. There is no where to grow, since he really has no type of spiritual groups or prayer groups to be able to grow with. It used to be a thriving, community based church, and the unfortunate thing about Praise Center is that it has seemed to grow into a place that has nothing to offer unless you are a pastor who cares nothing about the people and only about how much you can get form them. Of course there are those "followers" who will continue to say the everything is ok at Praise Center but it isn't. I have no doubts that Sister Francine is a great lady but there is something wrong when a pastor has no accountability for anything in the church and does what he wants regardless of what the congregation thinks. I mean seriously....$150.00 for one theater chair and he wanted how many? It would have cost $60,000 dollars to put those stupid chairs in the church and for what?? Most people can't even fit in those things! Thank god he came to his senses there! I just don't know how he can condone this when that money could have gone for helping the community he seems to have forgotten. I could probably go on and on about this church because I attended for over 15 years before I came to my senses and learned that nothing was going to change and as soon as the "followers" realize that they will all try to find a church that wants you there for you and not just for what they can get off you. Sorry but that is the way I see it..

My experience with the Praise Center Church was not a good one. I too have experienced the anger of pastor Rodriguez. He's very insensitive. I played the guitar for a while. I was a member of this church in the 90"s. It seems the main emphasize is on money. It's another situation where the pastor lives like a king while the members struggle to survive. While he preaches a good sermon it seems it's almost scripted to excite the congregation. And he really knows how to cry! Good Show!

I pray for Pastor Rodriguez for years and my prayer is that he learn love and except the many folks that left his church due to his anger, and as I state it is his church when it should be God's church. As God, says no matter who we are we are not worthy not one of us, but his love and death sealed it all. We must be Christ like and would Christ push and have so much anger for those trying to do right. He has lost many pastors and friends for what gain?

I had a hurt experince with this church as well, and learned to forgive the Pastor. His wife Sister Francine is a Angel. Just pray for him and let the hurt go. " Jesus is the a awesome God, and shall show you the path. I remember one time that Pastor at Praise Center said if you see me going in the wrong direction then get away. Which I did. So I love him for that with the love of God.

I was a member of Praise center church for about a year. While the service was energetic, I found that the pastor was very insensitive, and seemed to only want my offering. He also joked from the pulpit how those who gave more would have a special place in heaven. While I know he was just kidding around, I still felt bad because I didn't have much to give. I think the church should be a help to the community and not a challenge to the poor. Everything seems to be about money. But what about the souls of man. It seems it was the same old message, give to God so he will give to you. When will it stop? It seems Obama is the only one that understands that. Let's give to the people for a change instead of taking from them.

My son and I have attended Praise Center on and off for the past 13 years or so.only in the past 4 years have we come home to stay and commit to having a one on one relationship with God. My Family and I have been blessed beyond comparison to how we lived before. Our Pastor William and Sister Francine including the entire staff and Associate Pastors are the real deal! if you want concession treats and goodies go to the movies and stay in the lobby. but if you want and need substance you'll find it at Praise Center Church. come join us and celebrate the love we have for God with an awesome music ministry lead by Pastor Israel and the teaching of Gods word .

Pastor Rodriguez has always answered my phone calls even though I was attending another church. I devoted lots of time when I was a young mother to membership and teaching, but moved on. The Pastor never let this hinder advice for me and help for my marriage. I still have a question and now in Ft. Worth, Texas I found Tina's comments hurtful for such a generous organization of active Christians while I am now wondering about what the church feels about what Christ said when he said, "Let not these things found among you..." I shake/quiver when I see the politics and instead of people praying for mercy such as Moses did, I see slander towards Obama and hate from Christian Republicans...Goodness prevails and is found in the ministry of Pastor William and Sister Francine and those who choose to L O V E by donating their time and prayer. My suggestion to Tina: Do not hold this ministry to what your family could not contribute as active participants in doing God's work. If I could contribute for 9 years in the hardest of times so could anyone. Churches are not buildings they are people. The people make Praise Center an active force in the community. Get into a church and contribute, take ownership. My daughter was married by Pastor Rodriguez in the church without a charge being rendered to us and she was not a member. We did the responsible thing and offered what the pastor deserved as a servant of the Lord. Pastor Rodriguez had so much Faith in our family being successful in seeking our Lord Jesus and presented his well researched messages that were prayed on and delivered to the people in spirit and truth.

I have attended Praise Center for the past five years. One thing that stood out to me when I first started attending, was the truth being preached. Pastor Rodriguez gives powerful truth in all his teachings. He is not afraid of people but fears God. You can tell that he is more concerned with bringing truth that we desperately need than offending someone who may be compromising by the way they live. That means alot to my family. We need to hear the truth of the Bible taught all the way. We don't need a Pastor who tap dances around for people, but brings the truth of God to those of us who need to hear it! Our church is not perfect but our God is. We have problems just like any family would but we love each other. I love my church and I thank God for it with all my heart. If you want to hear God's Word in it's fullness, come check it out! You will be glad you did.

A member in my family passed yesterday. She and her husband attend praise center church when they could as they had no transportation. When they did attend, they would go by bus (RTD). Although they were not members of this church, this was "Their" church of choice and where they called their home church. The little money they had barely put a roof over their head and paid their bills for their small apartment. My cousin called Praise Center this morning on behalf of her step-moms death, and asked if they could hold the service viewing and funeral at Praise Center. The secretary that spoke to her was very rude, and showed no compassion. There were a number of questions asked such as; why did she call this church instead of using the mortuary service. The secretary stated, because her step mom was not a "Member" they could not have the service their unless they paid $500 dollars. I was surprised, and taken back by this because I used to attend this church many years ago and humanity and helping others was what this church was based on. Needless my cousin called her own church and they were more than willing to help with the service and not charge for the services because they knew that there was no money set aside for such a tragedy. I was at Praise Center last year, ironically for a funeral and for Mothers day a few years back with you can guess my family and my uncle's wife whom just passed. I will never step foot in this church again. I truly believe that God made a way for my cousin in her time of grief. Unfortunately, corruption exists in many places even the house of God.
