Kansas City reverend rips members, calls ’em broke

Carlton Funderburke needs a watch/YouTube

KC Pastor rips congregation. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

KANSAS CITY — A viral TikTok video shows Kansas City Reverend Carlton Funderburke lambasting his parishioners because they don’t tithe enough. Funderburke, senior pastor at Church at The Well, even had the audacity to call ’em “broke, busted and disgusted” for not buying him an expensive Movado watch that costs roughly $3,000. The holy diatribe transpired mid-sermon on August 7th. “This is how I know you’re still poor, broke, busted and disgusted, because of how you’ve been honoring me,” Funderburke told the congregation. “I’m not worth your McDonald’s money? I’m not worth your Red Lobster money? I ain’t worth your St. John Knit? You all can’t afford it nohow. I ain’t worth y’all Louis Vuitton? I ain’t worth your Prada? I’m not worth your Gucci? You can buy a Movado watch in Sam’s. Y’all know I asked for one last year. Here it is all the way in August and I still ain’t got it.”

Honor you?

Aren’t churchgoers supposed to honor God?

Social media reaction was vitriolic. One viewer wrote, “THIS is exactly why I don’t go to a modern church today. It’s a hustle.” Another chimed in with, “If anyone is still attending that church, they are seriously out of their minds.” A third observer added, “Nothing’s changed. Back in the day preachers wanted Cadillacs when everyone else was either walking or taking the bus. They wanted houses when others could only rent. The only difference now is technology and social media where more people can witness the audacity.”

Realizing he screwed up, Funderburke released an apologetic video on Tuesday.

“I’ve spoken to those I am accountable to and have received their correction and instruction,” he said.

“I have also privately apologized to our church, who has extended their love and support to me.”

Church at The Well is located at 8607 Longview Road.

Be sure to bring your purse and wallet.

  1. Well obviously he can’t afford it either if he’s begging his congregation and then the clown in the back ground that’s pumping him up with this nonsense. If God told him why didn’t God tell the congregation as well. Don’t come to me telling me what God said you to tell me….Hell naw

  2. can’t afford your own watch??
    what’s next? have them buy you a new cadillac?? a new house? some new clothes?
    His mama should’ve come up there and slapped him across his head and say,Son,what the hell you doing?

  3. “That’s how I know y’all still poor, broke, busted, and disgusted”

    AYOOOO!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂

  4. No nigga you NOT worth a dime let alone my Gucci. But you are worth repenting, loving God and SERVING God’s people!

  5. This uneducated buffoon is immoral, evil, and self-serving. He does not deserve to be a pastor nor is he qualified. He needs to go.

  6. GET OUT OF THAT CHURCH. He is a false prophet. He has no business asking no congregation for things. GET A JOB AND BUy WHAT YOU WANT. He is a false prophet and if you don’t leave that church he is going to drag you to HELL with him!!!!

  7. Ain’t nobody giving up spicy mcchickens nor cheddar bay biscuits for you 🤣

    Then they wonder why church attendance is down & home Bible studies are up.

  8. God is FREE, and a 1:1 prayer does it any time 24/7/365, and anywhere. This non-sense of church & man is ALL brain control, by design, from the beginning. Historically, the church is full of sin—millions vanquished, tortured, and enslaved in the name of God for millennia. I go to my place of solitude and pray 1:1 with God—for FREE. I’m not going to be any part of the sacred mansion, limo, clothes, and yacht for any man. All talk and no action. Actions speak louder than words.

  9. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
    Matthew 7:22‭-‬23 NIV

  10. A mf Movado? Bruh, if you can’t buy your own Movado, you need to put in some overtime at McDonalds. Who would even want one though? They’re made by MVMT now lmao.

  11. This is NOT a church. This is a cult. This person is not a pastor. This person is an idol worshiper. The idol of self. There’s a reason Jesus went into the temple and whipped the money changers and cast them out.

  12. I bet none of the people yelling and hyping him up actually went to Sam’s and bought him a watch after service 😂 Some people love being loud and agreeing with the pastor no matter what.

  13. AND Congressman Cleaver closed his Congressional Prayer in name of a FALSE GOD ..2021 on YT …WHERES THE WORD OF JESUS ?

  14. This sucka would have gotten cussed all the way out in that church. No he isn’t worth any of the above. I’m sick of clowns serving as pastors, the nerve.

  15. Please get this pastor his movado watch! 🥺he giving y’all the word every week and you know pastors love to dress fancy and get drippy and he ain’t got the movado watch he wanted all year and keep seeing at sams . Get him his drip please 🙏in Jesus name !

  16. The whole community there needs to throw a “can of act right” at that fool!

  17. How dare U ask cheap, broke, busted and disgusted people to buy U a watch they can’t afford. U said it Urself, yet U didn’t care that they couldn’t. I’m sure U made them feel like crap. Shame on U, lover of material things. I wouldn’t Never step a foot back in that church if I were them. And Ur fake apology was awful. When U genuinely apologize it comes from the heart to and it is not read from a piece of paper written by Ur publicist. Have that same energy U had when U were ranting in that video. Ur disgusting.

  18. Brother you can apologize all you want but your apologies should be to God. You are using a church and a congregation to support your lifestyle!! You literally told your congregation that they should HONOR YOU?!! What about God? God is the one and only one they should be honoring there NOT YOU!!!! I truly hope he reads these comments. In my opinion ONLY!!! He needs to fall to his knees and ask God for forgiveness!! Then he needs to learn to be HUMBLE, KIND AND CARING NOT TO MENTION SOME HUMILITY. Stop expecting these people to buy you things!! With the cost of living the way it is now THEY PROBABLY CAN’T AFFORD IT BUT HE DOES NOT CARE!! BECAUSE AS HE SAID THEY ARE TO HONOR HIM!! The temper tantrum he threw is the REAL HIM!!!! The soft spoken apologies on his video is a ACT!! I do not hate this young man I feel sorry for him and I pray he will truly find God and stop using God for his personal gain!!!

  19. Disgusted. I stopped believing in god when I came to the age of reason because I have a brain. The church is pathetic. This pastor is pathetic. & the people who are still there supporting this church, are also pathetic.

    Gonna give myself a pat on the back now for making sure this comment was as appropriate as possible.

  20. And where in the Bible does it say to buy your “Pastor” an expensive ass watch for no reason. This right here is one of the reasons people think church is a joke. This, mega-churches, televangelists, and all of the sycophants that believe they are better than everyone else. The church members need to rise up and humble these so called Pastors/Preachers.

  21. He didn’t even want a Rolex, all he asked for was Movado.. let a man live ffs

  22. I blame the ignorant people that support this nonsense more than the fake preachers that present this foolishness! They could not do this unless they have an audience!

  23. I have more respect for a pimp then most so called PREACHERS. The pimp DOSEN’T hide behind anything a lot of preachers hide behind the BIBLE.


  25. Don’t honor God but honor this man who is preaching from the good book of BLM, thou shalt enrich thine pockets. He said the quiet part out loud and people will still flock to his church after this.

  26. His ass sweet as sugar.
    He needs the church to buy him a DRESS😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  27. He doesn’t have to worry about retaliation from them because they’re all sheep . I stopped going to church seventeen years ago because 1.) My mother forced me to go since I was a child and church was always super lame and boring , in my opinion . 2.) I’M A PAEGAN . 3.) Church is nothing but a scam to get tax – free money from gullible idiots . 4.) I’m an independent thinker . I don’t need a religious pastor to tell me what to do with my life and think for me . The next time I go to church , it will be in a casket .

  28. Carlton Funderburke’s apology was not sincere at all. All he’s really worried about is losing what money he is getting from the congregation. Broke ,Busted and Disgusted, get the hell out of here! Buy your own watch Funderburke.

  29. It’s messed up the pastor begged a year for a watch. Most churches do an offering for birthdays and anniversary. A dollar offering for the year? Either he needs more members and/or the congregation doesn’t like him. He’s not worth a Movado? 😳🤣

  30. My pastor did this he didn’t call us any names but he shamed the congregation for not giving enough “Love Offerings” for his birthday 🙄 I left after he made a whole sermon about me 😅🕺🏿🕺🏿🕺🏿🕺🏿

  31. His church is not without a history of scandal. Several years ago one of the Elders in his church killed his wife. Robert Harris killed his wife Tanisha…Robert wasn’t honest about his lifestyle and sexual orientation

  32. Black people must understand that we are looked at as a resource for these churches. A means to an end. All about the dollar. No one loves you or care about you unless there’s money tied to it. What have you done for me lately is always the question at hand.this is why they want females as head of the black family because she will do her part to make sure we never become a successful community and align ourselves with GOD’S plan.

  33. The Pastor Pimp was mad he didn’t get enough money from his hoes in the congregation for that Movado watch, next he will be telling them how dusty they are for not paying for his Cadillac Escalade, or new Mercedes S Class. Churches are full of BS, the only thing they are doing is taking more money from poor blacks, but they are stupid to keep donating to them. My financial situation is awesome, fuc% a church. What about the other Pastor in New York that got robbed on a live feed during a sermon, if this doesn’t tell you these jokers are fraudulent then you need your brain examined.

  34. It is A-L-W-A-Y-S the “black” church that has these shenanigans going on 🤦‍♀️! THE BLACK CHURCH IS DEAD …PERIOD 💀!!!

  35. They should have stood up and walked out! No one should be talked to like that, especially in the church! God will handle him…
