Pastor Charles Jenkins Comes Clean About Affair, And Mistress’ Six Figure Salary

*Seems pastors are continually showing us that they are just ordinary people after all.

Never mind the fact that they stand in the pulpit every Sunday preaching down to us “sinners” – usually in that “holier-than-thou” tone. Telling us to Live right. Act right. Be right so that we will go to heaven when we die.

Come to find out, some of them are not living right. Acting right; Being right. Wonder where they’ll go once they leave here.

Take Chicago pastor & gospel singer Charles Jenkins, you may remember him. Several weeks back a photo appeared online that showed him brushing his teeth, full monty…naked. Once the curtains got pulled back, we found out he was having an adulterous affair, an 8-year-long relationship, with a married woman (he’s married too!)

Once the photo came out, the pastor did too – admitting to the affair, asking his wife for forgiveness, and appearing in front of his congregation hoping they would take pity on his poor soul because, after all, he’s only human.

Thing is, now that all is out in the open, pastor Jenkins has thrown something else into the mix. If he’s going down, he’s not going down alone.

According to a blog post published by Rae Lewis-Thornton, a former member of Fellowship Chicago, Jenkins confessed to everything with his wife by his side. In a plea to the church he said, “he had already asked his wife for forgiveness and was now appealing to the church” to do the same.

The blog was also where he first named the woman he was having the affair with, Mrs. Mundi Griffin, a Chicago businesswoman who he claimed was now extorting him.

Mrs. Griffin calls pastor Jenkins a “liar” and told him via a text message, “for you to fabricate a story to defend your reputation and publicize it is irresponsible and disgusting. I have kept our affair a secret even beyond my departure. But you elect to wrongfully defame me across your pulpit.”

Mrs. Griffin had been married for a year when she began her affair with the pastor. She worked for Fellowship Chicago (then known as Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church) and was paid a salary of $106,000. Jenkins allegedly fired two other church officials in order to hire Griffin so that he could pay her the six-figure salary. Although Griffin, who joined the church in 2004, left the church after five years, she said the affair continued for three years after that.

Thornton knew Mrs. Griffin personally and interviewed her about the affair. Griffin told her that the pastor said he was going to leave his wife for her. But Griffin said that their affair had “ended on peaceful terms” and that “There was nothing to talk about publicly.”

When the picture of Charles Jenkins appeared on the Obnoxious Blog a few weeks ago, Griffin received a series of text messages from Jenkins in which he accused her of releasing the photo, said he “wanted it to end,” and asked “what will it take to end this.”

  1. Pastor is a hoe, got caught and tried lie bout the extortion part… and if he had not got caught he probably would still be doin it and there are probably more women involved… he needs to step down, get himself together, repent, get counseling for himself then with his wife …

  2. These title is false he publicly announce it happen 8yrs ago not having 8yrs of adultery. Muffin got fired recently. His wife knew 8yrs ago. So the lies go on!! He never spoke of ms.griffin!! She spoke and threaten him if she don’t get money she will expose him and ruining his name and the church. Our founder knew About this years ago too. Mr griffin and her friend who has this blog is in with this. This dye down about 3weeks ago she wants more publicity and money. He spoke about this before the pics was release on the internet.. Once again this happen 8yrs ago not 8yrs of it. Mrs. Griffin is liar!! I pray to God do her. And people y’all act like y’all don’t have a past. You should judge god or u?

  3. People must remember, pastors, are only human beings too. They are not God. To place a pastor on a pedal stool, is wrong. Man will disappoint you every time. As a man supposed to be called by God, he truly needs to step down and examine his self. By staying in pastoral position will only make it bad for the rest of the congregation.

  4. Yes we are all human and people need to stop looking at flesh like the spirit of God. We will always fall and come short of the glory of God. I do not excuse the sin or condone the sin because we all have a story to tell or telling a story but God is so gracious and forgiving. Towards us but if God does not allow things to happen or transpire in our lives then what story will we tell or what testimony will we have so that someone will be delivered from bondage. The truth is when we commit a sin or sins it is bondage do the flesh. So please don’t condemn the man for falling because one day you may also be wearing those same shoes in a different situation. Unconditional love and compassion for others is the key. What I cannot stand is when the foolish men and women
    “the sinners” quote that we are holler than though, no that’s not it, it’s called we have since enough to fall on our knees and ask for forgiveness in our lowest of lowest so please begone with all of that. Learn who God is and what he is all about.

  5. Ms. Griffin most have regretted getting married to be cheating on her hubby of only a year or was it the nice monies she made while employed that made her ignore her marital status. Even so to much is given, much is required and the pastor knows he should have sought out counseling and much prayer rather then cheat. Too many are cheating and saying they are only human. Well Jesus in the flesh showed us we could choose to escape sin if we so chose to do so. Even so prayers for all involved and I pray their marriages will withstand.

  6. I pray for all of our Christian leaders, we are only human and we all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD! Who am I to judge when we all have somethings that we are not proud of, and wish that we can take back, we need to cover one another in prayer always. King David committed adultery and murder, but yet he was called a man after GOD’s own heart, he had to suffer the loss of his first born son, but became greater afterwards!
    HEAVENLY FATHER, I LIFT UP ALL CHRISTIANS LEAADERS BEFORE YOU, ASKING THAT YOU MAY GRANT THEM FORGIVENESS, GRACE AND MERCY, I BIND UP EVERY STRONG HOLD THAT COMES AGAINST THEM, I PRAY THAT THEY ARE STRENGTHENED AND EMPTY THEMSELVES OF THEMSELVES SO THAT YOU FATHER GOD, MAY POUR INTO THEM ALL THAT IS NEEDED ON THIS JOURNEY,GIVE THEM ENDURANCE TO RUN THIS RACE AND NOT LET THEIR GOD BE EVIL SPOKEN OF! I PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR LIVES AND ASK THAT YOU WILL KEEP THEM IN ALL OF THEIR WAYS! IN JESUS’ NAME I PRAY. AMEN AMEN AND AMEN!

  7. I believe the 8 years ago story because, 8 years ago he wasn’t famous, and as it said in the article, he had to fire a few people to give her that salary. 8 years ago, didn’t have a monster hit record. Now that’s he is, she’s trying to get a piece of the pie that she couldn’t get when He wasn’t famous. And unfortunately he put himself in a position where he could be extorted. That’s all this is.

  8. It’s a great article i ever read. Here pastors Telling us to Live right. Act right. Be right so that we will go to heaven when we die. Thanks for this informative post.

  9. Black pastors are nothing but Bible-toting pimps who have sex with anything walking on two legs.

  10. The Bible says in Galatians 6 : 1 that if your brother is over taken by a fault then you that are spiritual shall restore him with a spirit of meekness. The question is what will Jesus do?

  11. WWJD …Judge not lest you be judged. Restore with Love and Meekness for we are all flesh and subject to weakness.

  12. First of All Not All Black pastor sleep around all are not pimps of the church . What about the other pastor that are not black what are they call……

  13. I reside in Atlanta and i can say all you see here Pastor with these boys, I am sure the members sense things but it is so sad preachers here are not tipping out on their wife with another woman but with these young boys that sooner or later will expose them, This is a sick world we are living in and its not going to get any better, black pastor are on all sorts of web sites they don;t care the desires that they have are more important than their members, why sit up under a preacher if you sense he is sleeping around.
