Everything Is Going Is Going Down, But The Word Of God……The Word we are getting here at Obnoxious Media is that Jonteris and his wife Crystal are not doing well and in fact will soon be getting a divorce.  Crystal has not been to church in months.  She was recently messaged on Facebook to ask if she will be returning.  She responded not as your First Lady.  Some insiders say he might have even raised his hand to he on a time or two.  Needless to say a very pregnant Crystal returned o her ho e in Alabama, where she had their baby and Jonteris was not present.

Crystal has been throwing shade on Jonteris and even did a questionnaire on Social Media here are the questions and her responses below:

Do you believe in divorce?  I believe in happiness.

Will you be coming back to LA?  No

What is up with you and Tate?  Seasons come, seasons go, are we still together you will soon know.

As you all know Jonteris is the 25 year old preacher from Memphis that was installed as the pastor of the Historic Mont Moriah Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California.  He is often seen among the elite preachers and pastors.  He rubs shoulders with the likes of Bishop Brandon Porter, Gary Sprewell, and Nathaniel Green just to name a few.

Quick Update sent to Obnoxious Media sent at 9:45pm (Eastern) below:

There may be more to the jonteris Tate situation than I originally thought. I don’t think the part about him beating her is true. Nor the part about him being gay. Apparently Chrystal doesn’t like L.A. she can’t get with the flavor of how L.A. is and how the people are. She was left alone with a baby while jontaris ran revivals every week and was probably a little depressed and home sick. She left and moved back to Alabama while jonteris was our running revivals. He has also since packed up the home they were renting in L.A. 3 months ago and has not taken his things out of storage in moths. He is rumored to be a strong contender for the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church of Dallas as their current pastor rev Wallace is about to retire. Rev Tate is not even living in L.A. he is said to be living back in Memphis and flies in every Saturday night to preach at the Sunday morning service at Mt Moriah. He doesn’t do any mid week service including funerals. In fact, priori to this past Sunday, he hasn’t been there for several weeks even for the Sunday service. It looks like rev Tate May be waiting on a call from the church in Dallas which is said to be a better fit for his southern style. He and Chrystal may not be completely done. She definitely isn’t moving back to L.A. but they may reunite as a family unit in Dallas which is much closer to home for both of them.

This is video I took at the installation service in 2017 at Mt Moriah. Chrystal is in the gold hat, former First Lady Jacquie wade to her right. You see Bishop ulmer on the platform standing next to former pastor rev wade. Margaret Pleasant Duroux singing the song she wrote l. Her father, the late rev E.A. Pleasant founded Mt. Moriah and built the current structure.

On Saturday, February 10, at 11:30 a.m., an Installation Fellowship Luncheon will be held at the Proud Bird Event Center, 11022 Aviation Blvd., in Los Angeles. The Rev. Dr. R. A. Williams, senior pastor of McCoy Memorial Baptist Church, will be the keynote speaker.

Tate, age 24, was elected as senior pastor of Mount Moriah in August 2017 following the 42-year tenure and official retirement of the Rev. Dr. Melvin V. Wade, Sr. Previously, Tate was the spiritual leader of First Thessalonians Baptist Church in Memphis, TN.

Actively involved in denominational work, Tate is recognized as one of the youngest evangelist that is sought after around the nation. He is married to the former Crystal Smith of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

“This will be an historic event in the life of Mount Moriah. Rev. Tate will be the third senior pastor in the church’s 72-year history. Mount Moriah Baptist Church was organized by the late Dr. Earl A. Pleasant in 1946; and has been an anchor on the Figueroa Street corridor for more than 60 years,” said Quaford Coleman, church spokesperson.

“Many outstanding and distinguished Pastors from around the nation, denominational, political leaders and special guests, will participate in the formal service on Sunday, February 11, at 5 p.m. A warm welcome is extended to the church community and the community at-large to attend all of the Installation Celebration activities,” he added.
