A Missouri pastor berated his ‘poor’ congregation for not honoring him with a new expensive watch he asked for a year ago while reportedly delivering a sermon about ‘taking care of God’s shepherd.’ 

Pastor Carlton Funderburke, of Kansas City, was caught calling his congregation ‘poor, broke, busted, and disgusted’ after they still hadn’t bought him an expensive Movado watch – which ranges in price from $395 to $3,295 – since he first asked for it in last year. 

‘I’m not worth your McDonald’s money? I’m not worth your Red Lobster money?’ he asked the Church at the Well congregation as he paced around on stage on August 7. ‘I ain’t worth your St. John Knits – y’all can’t afford it no how. 

‘I ain’t worth your Louis Vuitton? I ain’t worth your Prada? I’m not worth your Gucci?’

Kansas City Pastor GOES OFF on congregation calling them “poor, broke busted and disgusted” because they didn’t give him enough money to buy a new watch he’s been wanting. It’s pastors like these that give the church a bad name smh an also why a lot of our generation left the church. What y’all think? 🤔

He went on to say that he was wanted his members to know ‘what God is saying’ before becoming agitated, stating: ‘Ooh, you can buy a Movado [watch] at Sam’s [Club] and you know I asked for one last year. And here it is all the way in August and I still ain’t got it. 

‘Let me kick down the door and talk to my cheap sons and daughters.’  

Funderburke has since released an apology video, saying the ‘video clip does not reflect my heart or my sentiment toward God’s people, yet, that’s not discernible in the clip.’ 

He did not offer an explanation for his actions. 

‘Therefore, I offer this sincere apology to you today,’ the pastor said as he read from a visible script. 

‘No context could erase the words I used. I apologize to all the people that have been hurt or angered or anyway damaged by my words.’ 

He further went on to apologize to his congregation for not showing them ‘respect’ or ‘love,’ and for all other pastors who will be scrutinized for his actions. 

He later released an apology video (pictured) on Tuesday, saying the clip 'does not reflect my heart or my sentiment toward God's people'
