There is a SCAM text that is going around to the members of the church saying that it is from Pastor John Madvig. It says: “_____ I need a favor from you please get back to me once you get this Pastor John Madvig” No punctuation. The phone number we have seen so far is 1(803) 906-2130 . DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS TEXT.

If you get this message forward the scam message to 7726 as this helps the cellular providers to combat these scams. A person from the church has already lost $500. Pastor John would not contact you for money.


If you receive any emails from “Pastor John” and it is not from an email address ending in, it is not from Pastor John Madvig. IGNORE THIS EMAIL. The latest fake email that a church member has received was from this address: Once again official emails from the church come from email addresses ending in We will not individually ask you for money online and the only acceptable online avenues for giving is through the Vanco Mobile App and our Venmo.
