WESTMINSTER, Calif .– A former Southern California pastor was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison on Friday for organizing a church-based investment scheme that defrauded hundreds of victims of more than $ 33 million.

Former Westminster-based Church for the Healthy Self pastor Kent RE Whitney has been ordered to pay more than $ 22 million in restitution. He pleaded guilty last year to mail fraud and filing a false federal income tax return.

The Securities and Exchange Commission said Whitney and her co-pastor allegedly targeted the Vietnamese community in a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme.

Whitney founded the church and operated it in an Orange County shopping center. The church did not appear to have a sanctuary, according to the Los Angeles Times.

“Mr. Whitney, after being briefed on the investigation, immediately reached an agreement with the SEC, cooperated with the US attorney’s office, accepted responsibility and pleaded guilty,” his attorney wrote, Kenneth White, in an email Friday. “He is now focusing on his family.”

FBI hunt continues for Tarzana couple convicted of $ 18 million COVID fraud

Attempts to reach other church members were unsuccessful.

Whitney defrauded her investors between September 2014 and April 2019, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles. He called on church officials to solicit investments on television, as well as at seminars, where they made false or misleading statements.

Although few investor dollars were placed in trading accounts, Whitney sent victims monthly statements containing fake performance reports.

Whitney also filed a false federal income tax return, prosecutors said.

He formed the Church for the Healthy Self after his release from prison on a federal conviction for defrauding investors in a commodity program, the LA Times reported.

Going to church has become much more luxurious.

A new members-only bar opened in Manhattan this week in a remarkably unique location: the interior of a historic 19th-century chapel. Designed by Roman and Williams, the eye-catching new Chapel Bar is open exclusively to guests of the Fotografiska Museum or members of NeueHouse.

” The concept of Chapel Bar was to build a sanctuary for culture – a place to worship art, photography, fashion and music in a chic setting, surrounded by creative and curious individuals, ”said Josh Wyatt, CEO of Fotografiska and NeueHouse. “We bring together a base of close members who are passionate about promoting culture in their personal and professional lives, and we welcome the magical moments and passionate energy that will come from this coming together of minds and spirits. ”

If you can snag an invitation to the dramatic bar, you’ll come across historic design cues alongside modern touches. The chapel was originally built by James Renwick Jr., the architect behind another place of worship that you probably know a little more about: St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Throughout the unique space, contemporary visitors will now discover a ‘denominational’ VIP room with experiential cocktail service, Floratorium floral installations and a photographic installation by Miles Aldridge that coincides with his Fotografiska exhibition, “Virgin Mary.” Supermarkets. Pop corn. Photographs 1999 – 2020. “

The bar’s cocktail menu pays homage to its unique location inviting “guests to drink at the altar spirits created by monks, priests and influential figures, both historical and folk, from around the world” . The range of selected drinks includes chartreuses, champagnes, gins and more, all with the aim of providing concoctions in a historical context.

Chapel Bar is located in Fotografiska New York in the Flatiron District at 281 Park Ave S.

A longtime custom home builder in Wilmington recently completed a unique office project and will showcase it at an open house on Friday.

PBC Design + Build has established its own office in the former Pearsall Memorial Presbyterian Church Community Hall at 3902 Market Street.

The nearly 25-year-old company had moved to various locations, moving to 314 Walnut St. in downtown Wilmington in 2013. PBC moved from there to their new digs on Market Street about three weeks ago.

The office is 4,200 square feet and the building was designed by architect Leslie Boney Jr. in the 1960s.

PBC has put its own mark on the exterior and interior of the historic structure.

“You can come in and see some unique design features that we would only do out of pure celebration of our craft and also because this is our space designed for us by a great architect, Michael Kersting and his team. “ said Dave Spetrino, president of PBC.

An open house will be held at the new PBC office at 3 p.m. Friday.

The office building is the first phase of a 14-acre multi-phase development in and around the church, which was built in 1912.

The next phases of the project will involve Switchyard, an apartment community slated to contain 192 apartments, with 48 two-bedroom units and 144 one-bedroom / studio units.

In a future phase, the old sanctuary will be transformed into a restaurant space, Spetrino said. While the interior of the church is being renovated, he said, he has no plans to demolish it.

Spetrino said he believes this part of Market Street is “an area that will improve over the next two decades” and the trading floor has given PBC the opportunity “to take a unique space and appropriate it while respecting the people who came before us. “

WASHINGTON (RNS) – Four years after the Washington National Cathedral removed stained glass windows depicting Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the cathedral will announce Thursday, September 23 that the windows will be filled with works by multimedia artist Kerry . James Marshall honoring the struggle of African Americans for justice.

The windows, which are slated to be installed in 2023, will be funded by a contribution of more than $ 1 million from the Mellon Foundation.

In a separate development, it was also announced that Mellon’s president, poet Elizabeth Alexander, will help inscribe new worms in the stone around the windows. The poetry project is funded by actress Kate Capshaw and her husband, Steven Spielberg, through the Hearthland Foundation.

The new windows will be the first stained glass work produced by Marshall, whom Kevin Eckstrom, cathedral communications director, described as “one of the contemporary artistic scribes of black life in America.”

Marshall, known primarily for his paintings of black subjects, was the subject of a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in 2013, and in 2016 a retrospective of his career was opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and then went to the Met Breuer in New York City.


RELATED: Washington National Cathedral to remove windows honoring Confederate generals


Confederate-themed stained glass windows were added to the cathedral’s stained glass in 1953 with support from the United Daughters of Confederation, a group that sought to honor the memory of veterans who fought for the South. Window removal had been under consideration since the 2015 shooting of nine members of Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, but was withdrawn following a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, in Virginia in 2017.

The removed windows were on loan to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and will be on display in the “Make Good the Promises: Reconstruction and Its Legacies” exhibit, which is due to open on Friday.

While several statues of Confederate officers have fallen in recent years, Eckstrom stressed that the cathedral windows “will be one of the first Confederate icons to fall and be replaced by something else.”

In August 2020, a United Methodist Church in Boise, Idaho, known as the Cathedral of the Rockies, desecrated a stained glass window depicting Lee. In her place, the church will honor Bishop Leontine Kelly, the first African-American female bishop of the United Methodist Church, according to the Rev. Duane Anders, pastor of the church.

Anders said the window will focus on Kelly but also highlight the historic election of the first Hispanic American bishop and the first American bishop of Japanese descent. All three were consecrated in the church sanctuary in a ceremony in 1984.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Historic Tyler, Inc. (HTI) presented Marvin United Methodist Church with the annual Historic Preservation Award for the restoration of the sanctuary’s original stained glass windows.

HTI’s annual meeting took place on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at the Willow Brook Country Club.

Claudia H. Carroll, Chair of the Board of Trustees of HTI, said: “We are delighted to recognize the members of the Marvin United Methodist Church for the restoration of the original stained glass windows of the shrine, which undoubtedly contribute to the historic integrity of downtown Tyler. “

Marvin’s members began to notice that the windows were in urgent need of restoration and inspection revealed that the interior framing had started to separate from the stained glass elevations.

“The Annual Meeting is the highlight of the past year, a time to celebrate not only the preservation efforts of our Preservation Award recipient, but also our efforts to preserve the historic Tyler landscape. Despite these unprecedented times… we recognize that our success is only made possible through the support of the community and appreciate the opportunity to recognize the caring citizens of Tyler, ”said Ashley Washmon, Executive Director of Historic Tyler.

“We met at a birthday party,” explains artist / designer Virginie Sommet of the client for this project, who at the time lived in a condo in Queens but wanted to buy a building where she could live (and have a garden) but also have rental income. Sommet, who grew up in Normandy and owned a ballet school in Paris before moving to New York and starting working for developers on design projects, offered to help. After all, she had remodeled her own home in Bed-Stuy, which brought her to work with private clients, and was always up for a challenge.

They found him in a disused three-story building from 1899 in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn. It was a church on the ground floor, with apartments above, and they immediately saw the potential for a new start.

“It was not easy,” recalls Sommet, “because she had to change the CofO. The Sommet client had loved her renovation of her townhouse and told her “she wanted the same”. Which meant a clean minimalist space, with the designer’s “Virginie Peekaboo” cabinets that can look like giant exclamation marks or mysterious oval pods floating on the walls. (Sommet does not like right angles: “For me the square is boring, Virginie Peekaboo is not!”)

The old sanctuary, now a loft-like space with the kitchen at the front and the guest bedroom at the rear, opens onto the new garden. The two children’s bedrooms were created on the second floor, connected by a new spiral staircase that Sommet herself designed. “I bought a custom metal staircase for $ 2,500 as a base and then worked with three carpenters eight hours a day for three weeks,” she says. “I researched the materials and had to be with them all the way because they had never done this before.” The remainder of the second floor, as well as the top floor, have become rental apartments.

The new facade: “There were originally two small windows,” says Sommet of the ground floor, which she opened with sliding doors from Jeld-Wen and bamboo planted from Lewis Bamboo, which grew to protect. the interior space of the view. There is a Somfy mechanized roller shutter system installed by Long Island Weather Protection.

The dining room: The view from the dining table to the living room and beyond to the guest’s bedroom and garden. The Zuri Ronde chair can be seen on the back of Etsy’s silver ottoman, on the left.

The kitchen: The custom elongated cabinets with lids are by Virginie Peekaboo, the stools are Equino Chrome stools, and the stove and refrigerator are by Fisher & Paykel.

The half bath: She calls it the Disco Powder Room with “Silver Uniform Brick Mirror Tile” found at Price Stone. The small white sink is 18 inches and is available from Price Stone, and the glass medicine cabinet is from Ikea.

The living room by the garden. Sommet says: “I was inspired by architect Elizabeth Roberts. I saw a photo on her website of a plant growing on the wall indoors, so I wanted to do the same for my client, but we didn’t make space in the ground for it. Sommet improvised on the idea with planters instead as well as a treasure of silver Christmas baubles and two plastic spheres she originally purchased for the garden.

The bedroom: It almost feels like the outdoors with a sliding glass door from Panoramic Doors. The ink and acrylic art on the wall above the bed is by Christian Holmes and the delightful Pom Pom fringed bedspread is by Etsy.

Bedroom, with Closed Wall: The bedroom can be made private by pulling on the 10 ‘sliding wall. “I wanted to have more space in the living room while having a full view of the garden,” says Sommet.

The garden: Summit transformed the backyard with custom wood planters and fencing and a deck with wood flooring. The outdoor dining table is from Rove Concepts and the sofa and coffee table are from Ikea. The chairs are from Ebern Designs. The round four poster bed behind the table is from Modway Convene Canopy.
