Missouri Pastor Rips ‘Disgusting’ Churchgoers Who Didn’t Buy Him A Fancy Watch

A Missouri pastor is apologizing after a video featuring his rant about being over his “busted and disgusted” congregation circulated on TikTok.

The clip featured Carlton Funderburke, senior pastor at Kansas City’s Church at The Well, telling churchgoers they were “cheap sons and daughters” for not honoring their pastor by buying him a Movado watch.

“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about what you can’t afford. You can’t afford it because you don’t see the value here,” Funderburke said as he pointed toward the front of his church. “Y’all hear from y’all pastor and father, I’m over y’all. I’m over your cheap expressions. See that’s how I know you’re still poor, broke, busted and disgusted because of how you’ve been honoring me.”

Some churchgoers could be heard cheering for Funderburke during the rant.

Watch the TikTok clip, which went viral, below:

TikTok users were upset by the pastor’s words and the churchgoers’ cheers, including one user who said pastors like Funderburke made him “not want to go to church anymore.”

“I would have been saying, ’No Pastor! I ain’t got it! While clutching my Coach purse leaving!!” one user wrote.

“Instead of cheering, they should be leaving!!!” another user said.

“Though there is context behind the content of the clip, no context will suffice to explain the hurt and anguish caused by my words,” Funderburke said. “I’ve spoken to those I am accountable to and have received their correction and instruction. I have also privately apologized to our church, who has extended their love and support to me.”
