Back in November 2016 Charisma News reported that after confessing to sexual sin, “Clayton Jennings canceled all his speaking engagements and stepped away from ministry to focus on his “marriage, his renewal and his spiritual formation.” On a Facebook video he also stated “I never claimed to be perfect and I never said I was sinless. Presenting you with a fake facade of greatness is never why I got in this. I want you to know this: I’ve sinned – a lot”.
Fast forward to September 2019 we share the latest news from J.D. Hall and Pulpit & Pen regarding Clayton Jennings’ arrest on June 13, 2019.
Pulpit & Pen News Division writes:
Clayton Jennings, the serial spiritual abuser and seeming sex addict who continues to maintain a ‘ministry’ following and fanbase after being denounced by his mentor and having his ministry license revoked for unrepentance, has been arrested for assault and a threat to do violence. The alleged victim was a woman.
Jennings launched a tirade against Pulpit & Pen earlier this year, with far-fetched allegations that led to death threats against this publication that had to be evaluated by federal and local law enforcement, both by Jennings and his fans, who were largely unaware of his long history of abuse toward women and ministry followers.
However, Jennings’ pattern of behavior toward women seems to have caught up to him this summer, which went unnoticed by the press and unreported by Jennings to his fans, upon whom he relies to buy his products from his online store, which are plastered with the phrase, “Jesus Jesus Jesus.”
According to police reports, an officer was dispatched to help a woman who was afraid that Jennings would do violence to her and a minor child.
After an investigation, police arrested Jennings at the scene.
The police had the woman sign a “domestic rights and remedies packet” and she explained that Jennings had become enraged when she expressed that he was a concern for their child’s safety.
The police report says that the woman was “crying and very shaken up.”
When in the presence of Jennings, the report says that the woman was, “cleary scared and in fear of [Jennings].”
Because of the nature of abuse, Pulpit & Pen is not releasing further details or the name of the alleged victim(s).
According to court documents, it appears that the alleged victim who called the police in fear and had Jennings arrested under the evidence provided to the municipal police would not testify against him by the time of the court deposition.
The evidence from the arrest record seemed abundantly clear, but women who are abused often do not have the support systems in place to follow through on prosecution of their perpetrators.
If you find yourself in an abusive situation, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotlineat 1-800-787-3224. In the meantime, if you would like to sign up for Jennings’ life-coaching you can sign up here. Bail-bonding not included.
