Starlight St James MBChurchIrvin Barrett pastor scam

Good day, A Chicago pastor Rev. Irvin L Barrett of the Starlight St James Baptist Church scammed his members of hundreds or even thousands of dollars from his members. His members was supposed to had went on a trip to Tennessee and raised money for months and the pastor stole the money, resigned from the church after collecting their hard earned money.Pastor Barrett, has now been known to leaving his Starlight St James M.B.C. located on 11300 South State St Chicago, IL 60628 773.785.2400 (be aware all calls to this number may go directly to this scamming pastor) for a church located in Texas. Barrett also bounced checks to his musicians, and also is the cousin of Pastor T.L.Barrett here in Chicago.

    This is a LIE!!! I can't understand why somone would get on this web site and LIE!!! about a man of GOD. Why do we have to always KNOCK a brother down when he is trying to make a better life for himself and his family. Whoever wrote this is just mad and upset that our PASTOR is leaving. Don't be MAD, be HAPPY for him.

    I personally spoke with this suppose to be Man of God and the first thing he said to me was who told you that...And then he told me that the trip was not for them to go on so my question is if the trip was not for them to go on then why did they even know about it and then why did he collect the money from them if it was not for them to go on...I think the person that made that first comment is really slow or that person is the one that the complaint is about... This man has taken this church nowhere but down... The church has been paid for and the church has been going without heat and air... I think the church should be rejoicing because he is gone...When he first came to the church he started getting rid of the people that really helped out the church so he would be able to run things like he wanted and so he can take care of the money...If people cannot see what is really going on there then I feel sorry for them...Someone gave money so the church van could get fixed and do you think the church van is fixed I think not... So I said all that to say this, its alright for man to want to take care of his family but its not alright for him to take care of his family on the churches expense...Like I told him he does not have to worry about the church gettin him back or even other people he has to worry about God because he is the one that knows all...

    THIS IS A VERY SAD CASE. THAT A CHURCH WOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I WAS A MEMBER OF STARLIGHT UNTIL THE PASTOR PUT ME N MY TWIN COUSINS OUT. WE WERE VERY ACTIVE MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH- FAITHFUL MEMBERS OF THE CHOIR, AND JR. DEACON BOARD. WE STOOD BY THE PASTOR IN HIS EVERY MOVE BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER SOMETIME SHACK. WELL WE TREATED HIM LIKE A FATHER. I JUST CANT BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT. MY FAMILY HAS CAME FROM 35TH STREET TO 113TH STREET WITH THIS CHURCH AND WE STILL LOVE IT ALL THE WAY. 90% OF THAT CHURCH IS MY FAMILY.100% OF THAT CHURCH IS MY FAMILY IN CHRIST. SO TO PASTOR BARRETT AND HIS FAMILY YOU WILL SEE THE LIGHT(STAR-LIGHT). AFTER THE *SUN-RISE THE STARS-LIGHTS*. I KNOW REV. WARD IS TURNING OVER IN HIS GRAVE. WE LOVE YOU REV. WARD.

    He said that he would give us the money back, I don't understand why everyone is in a up roar. You guys need to be ashame of yourselves. This is why we can't all get along. We always try to find something, or excuses to knock a brother down. Who are we to judge. If he has done wrong why are we throwing stones, let the God handle and deal with him. DON'T EXPLOIT HIM. He has a FAMILY that will have to deal with this mess

    The reason why people are in a uproar is because the way everything went down...Let me ask you a question, if you all are not going on this trip, why is it takin so long for u to get your money back? Seems like to me if you were not going on the trip the money should be back to you immediately right? You should look at the entire picture... Why would he set a trip up for the the church to go on and then say that trip was not for them to go on and then still collect the money and then tell the church that he has a job at another church. I think thats crazy and not right and if you don't think something is wrong with that then something is wrong with you...I think the people that wrote those comments as a matter of fact I know those peole that wrote those comments have respect for his family but I think their family is apart of that church and not only was it your money but it was their family money so I can understand why their upset... I think all of this is a mess to... I just hope he does not do Sunlight Baptist like he did Starlight Baptist!!!

    It is obvious that this man has a lot of people fooled. Just because you preach/teach the word of God does not mean you FOLLOW the word of God. I feel that if he was ready to move on to another church, his church should have been the first to know. He went about everything the wrong way. Also, if you canceled the trip to Tennessee, then all monies should have been refunded immediately. Furthermore, how do take up offering for a specific reasons, but do not use the money for that reason. That's FRAUD! There is no way the church should have been without heat for 2-3 years. He wasn't even considerate enough to think about the babies/older people sitting in the cold church. The church didn't have heat but I bet he had heat. A lot of people stop attending church because of the multiple offering being taken each Sunday and nothing to show for it. This is a sad situation, this man has poor leadership skills. No ones judging him, we're just simply expressing our feelings and opinions. And it's not about exposing him, because everything that's done in the dark will eventually come to the light. There's nothing we can do but put it in God's hands. If he's trying to make a better life for him and his family, that's fine but there's better ways to go about that. Leaving his church with thousands of dollars worth of bills is not the way. Thats selfish!! He should have made sure the church was in good standing when he left, like it was when he got there!

    This is just disgusting. How could children who have not been members of the church in over 10 years know what's going on in our church today? If you were so concerned about "YOUR" church, why did you leave? Further more why would a man of God, take trip money only to show back up at church and give a 3 week notice? Why didn't we vote him out if he were so bad? Another thing, the expenses of the church is not the Pastor's responsibitlity. It's the members and we all should feel ashamed. He has told us time and time again the needs of the church and "WE" failed to respond. It's unfortunately our loss. Pastor sacrificed his all and all to build up Starlight to where it is now. We are nationally known because of Pastor. He has only wanted the best for us. Pastor gave up his salary years ago to help our (not your) church. He gave his anniversary money back year after year to help the church. He paid the church's bills out of his family's money. Why? Because he loves and trusts the Lord and he knew that the Lord would take care of him and his family one day and he has. Now I'm sure you know nothing about this because again you all are NOT members and have not been there in over 10 years to see and endure the struggle that we have. If I remember correctly, you and your family were terrible members and never supported the church and frankly we were glad when you all left. Over 95% of us at the church feel the exact opposite of what you non-members feel so please stop doing this to one of the most wonderful and dedicated Pastor's Chicago has ever known. We are suffering a great loss and a disgusting site like this is not helping us either. If we could, many of us will leave and follow him and not stay behind with your negative family members. The bible speaks of not doing the prophet any harm. You all will not be blessed by this. You are only hurting yourselves. It goes to show you that you are not living a Christian life and that Satan has gotten a hold of your hearts. Pastor - if you are out there, keep your head up as the members here love you very much. The church in Texas will be richly blessed by you and your wonderful family. God bless you and if I had my way I'd leave with you. God bless all of you who are negative. And OJ, this is not true that's hearsay all the way from Kentucky and not even from Chicago.

    Well let me tell we why they are not members anymore digusted, because your pastor that you look up to and that they looked up to decided one day to put them out of the church because they did not come to him when he wanted them to so thats why they are not members anymore..ANd you know what that really hurt them because they looked up to him and they helped the church out alot when they were there so you need to get it right...They still have family that goes to that church that is effected by this situation... You said the church is Nationally known, where are they Nationally known..The only reason that the church is known is because what was done there years before he got there and obviously you were not there for that and if you were how dare you forget!!! One more thing those guys that were put out of the church by your pastor is doing good and they thank him for doing that because if he didn't do that then they might be lookin foolish like you are now...God Bless Starlight!!!

    (Disgusted) We were very big supporter of the church you must be a Irvin or a new member to the church because we all know that story is a lie. Your so called Pastor put Butta, Mark, and Micheal out of the church so we just moved on. An still concern about OUR CHURCH. 90% of that church is there family Pastor Barrett if thats you because there isnt nobody speaking that highly of you. And you done all that s... to that church. That church was doing very well when you came had wonderful choir, Deacon board, Usher board, and Ministers but now you probably of 3 of each in each the dapartment because everything was not going his way in his eyes. So Irvin you have a good trip in hope all goes well because member of Sunlight M.B.C are now calling . The line are HOT.

    Michael and Butta - you all should feel ashamed of yourselves. You all are supposed to be Christian young men and lashing out at a Pastor you supposed to have looked up to is not right. He did a whole lot for you all when you all were kids and now you repay him like this? You all need to check your information. Don't go to hell on somebody else's ticket. And don't go to hell over a $400 church weekend trip that was canceled. All members have been reimbursed their money in full. You all have not been members of this church in over 10 years so whatever you have to say is useless. Bringing up old hurts is not fair to the Pastor nor his family. It's not fair to our church as we try to heal. What does Pastor T.L. Barrett have to do with this? Nothing. That's just like saying someone in your family is no good so you are too. Now would that be fair to you? No. You betta hope he and his church family don't find out you are linking his name to this site. You all ought to be careful as you can be sued for unfounded slanderous remarks.

    Again, this is not YOUR chuch. You were once affiliated with the church. You were baptized in the church. But it is not YOUR church. Realize it and accept it. You do not have rights or priveldges as any other member anymore. If you check church doctrine (as I just did), once you have been out of fellowship (not attending) a church in over 90 days, you are no longer a member in good standing. You have to join the church again. From what I recall, you all have not re-joined the church. No, I am not a new member as the newer members don't know you all or your family like I did. You all kept up a lot of mess then and still are. So please go on your way and leave our church alone. Trust me, just because you all have left the church (not put out as you try to say you were) does not mean the church was suppose to fold and not survive without you. We have survived and thrived. We are nationally known due to the marvelous convention work our Pastor has done and also for representing us when he preaches around the country. Again, you would know all this if you all were members. Sad, sad, sad. It's apparent that you all still have a childlike mind and have not grown into REAL men. Also, go get in a school and learn how to write with proper english.

    First of all get it right michael and butta is not the ones who put this article on this website so get your facts straight before trying to accuse people of this, we just commented just like your doin..Then second I feel so sorry for whoever is takin up for this man because obviously you don't get it, if the church is doing so good why is the church going without heat(when you responed to this please answer this question first) and why is it that once again did it take so long for him to give the money back if they were not going on the trip? I know we are not members and I thank God for that but the truth of the matter is that we help the church out alot when we were there and like I said if you don't remember one night after a broadcast he told us not to come back to the church, yes we were young and even then we did not understand why...Let me ask you a question how could two young men that were 13 or 14 around the time keep up so much mess to where a pastor would want to kick them out...I'm personally still in church and I work with churches around the city that I live in and around the country so I never got out of churche because of what Irvin done to me but I can say this after that happened that had a major affect on my cousin because he looked up to Irvin because he was like a father figure and he even enjoyed the way he dressed, he would always say that when he grew up he wanted to dress like that but after that situation it made him not want to go to church anymore and it made him look at pastors/preachers different... So when I look at the overall picture it hurts and I don't know if he knows it or not but that hurt like Hell and I don't think he even cares cause he never tried to even talk to us about it and he was then Man in the situation...So whoever commented about this don't really know what their talkin about...Now I want to talk about how you say the church is Nationally known because he is traveling around preaching well I think your really slow because the church is not known because of that, the church is known because of what they did years before he got there...I see that he traveled so much that he stumbled upon Sunlight Baptist and Starlight is left with the bills and Starlight is left with all the problems that he left behind...When a church goes without heat people don't look at the church because the pastor took over all the money and the business but they can look at the pastor because it falls in his hands...God you know whats going on please open their eyes and let them see...I think he has alot in store for Starlight and I'm actually happy because when Starlight blows back up it will be without him...Like I said he has done nothing but take Starlight Downhill... Can anybody tell me what he has done that made the church NATIONALLY known please, if you can I promise I will give him some props.Starlight get for better things...

    Everyone is trying to lash out at Michael and Butta when in fact their not the ones who made the complaint or who this complaint is about. Furthermore, while your throwing stones you need an english class too! (use your spell check next time) I know who wrote that comment. If you feel their childish you're worse than they are because your older!!! Don't be mad because you were blinded by this "Man Of God"!

    Your saying that the church's expenses are not the pastor's responsibility, but if hes the LEADER and the church is not doing what their suppose to be wouldn't it be he place to step in and take control????????? That's just like if you're at work and you don't carry out your tasks or do a good job, then usually your boss steps in. A leader is someone who directs a group of individuals. So basically, your saying his lacking leadership skills!! Also, Starlight is not nationally known, anytime I mention Starlight, no one knows what church I'm even speaking of. He tried to make it nationally known so that he'll be in the lime light. But if your such a big fan of his and worship him so much, why don't you trust God enough to follow him. And if he paid the churches bills out of his pocket and gave back anniversary money how is that the church didn't have heat for 3 years but he was able to buy a car within that time frame? Your mad at the wrong people, a member of YOUR church is the one who posted the complaint, so why are you mad at Michael and Butta? Their expressing their feeling just like you. So in fact, you're not being Christain-like right now, you're being a hypocrite.

    Lol...this is so hiliarious! You mean to tell me after this man has done all these horrible things to you so-called members and the church's legacy, some of you are still sweating him! you guys are really slow or off. I used to be a member a long time ago, but I left because God guided me away from all the drama and confusion that had plagued the church since Irvin became the sheperd. He is the sheperd that leads his sheep over the damn clift. Seemed like every sunday he was in the pulpit acting like he was the King instead of the pastor. Micheal and butta know what they are talking about, they are the ones that worked closely with him.NOT NONE OF YOU GUYS! So Stop talking just because you got lips...The truth is the light and you cant see it because yall got on stunner shades! So faithful members, be careful to watch the ceiling because the roof might fall in on you...Thanks 2 your beloved PASTOR B.
    P.s. If yall would've stop buying him all those colorful robes to preach in, you all could've covered those hole in the windows with his robes, since the furnace was broke for months.
    Stay cool!Peace. A.N.T.C.

    First of all we know that the person that's taking up for Irvin is really that of himself "Irvin" so you can stop talking third party talk DOC...We know its you!!! And i want to say that i feel so sorry for the Sunlite baptist church in Texas.I think Irvin is what we call a BIG little preacher (he claims he's so big but we all know he's not.) I've traveled a lot and I've never heard any preacher speak of Irvin L. Barrett. LOL So, him being nationally known is ludacris. I love the church dearly Starlight will always be my home, for those of you that say we don't know what's going on there. And despite what you say, 'Irvin' you did put Michael and Butta out of the church, everybody knows that. My family has been greatly affected by this whole MESS and are and always will be one of the biggest supporters of the church!!! We grew up in that church, were baptized in that church and all our uncles and aunts were brought up in that church as well. So, if people from Sunlite are reading this comment PLEASE BEWARE of Irvin Barrett!...

    THIS IS A SHAME, THE FIRST TIME I MEET REV. BARRETT WAS WHEN HE WAS BEING APPOINTED AS DISTRICT MODERATOR. THE REASON WHY SOME OF THE CHURCHES LIKE REV. OSCAR T. MOSES, REV. KLYCE, REV. TAYLOR AND OTHERS WAS BECAUSE THERE WAS BELIEF THEY WAS TAKEN MONEY OUT THE DISTRICT SO I DON'T BELIEVE THAT PASTOR BARRET WOULD DO THE SAME. I HAVE WORKED WITH PASTOR BARRETT ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS, HE IS A WELL GIFTED HARD WORKING MAN OF GOD, WHO HAD DREAMS AND GOALS FOR STARLIGHT ST. JAMES. WE MEET ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS AND DISCUSS THESE SO THEY CAN COME TO PASS. HE BELIEVE THAT THIS CHURCH CAN MAKE IT, THE REASON WHY STARLIGHT DIDN'T HAVE "NO MONEY" CAUSE MEMBERS WENT OLDER SUPPOSED TO BE WISER MEMBERS WENT AROUND TELLING PEOPLE NOT TO PAY TITHES. TITHES IN THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT IT IS 10% OF WHAT WE OWE GOD AND WITH THIS HE WILL GIVE BACK DOUBLE THE PORTION. SO THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. THE MONEY THAT HE ALSO GOT FOR THIS TENNESSEE TRIP WAS GIVEN BACK ON 10/26/08 WHICH IS THE SAME SUNDAY HE LEFT. I BELIEVE NOW THE REASON HE LEFT WAS BECAUSE HE COULD WITH ###S LIKE Y'LL PUTTING LIES AND OTHER UN TRUTHFUL STUFF LIKE THIS AROUND. MOST OF STARLIGHT MEMBERS KNOW ME AND KNOW THAT I HAVE AN ADMIRATION UPON SUCH A MAN OF GOD HAVE FULL RESPECT FOR HIM AND WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH TAKE INFORMATION FROM OTHER MEN OF GOD WHO HAS FOLLOWED AND WORKED BESIDE HIM. THIS MESS NEED E NEEDS TO BE SAID BECAUSE AS EVERYONE COULD SEE THIS COMES OUT WHEN HE LEAVES BUT NEVER WAS IN REGARD WHILE HE WAS HERE, SO STOP HATING ON PASTOR BARRETT. JUST LIKE I PREACHED TO MY CONGREGATION "BIG UPS TO ALL HIS HATERS." ONES WHO LIED ON HIM, TALKED ABOUT, EVEN MISTREATED HE WOULD WANT Y'LL TO KNOW, " BIG UPS TO YOU!!!"

    Oh yes where do I start? We have a right to state our opinions about this situation. I myself was a member of the light long enough to go along with the drastic change. Everybody wants to jusify what happened WHY? It is what it is. Let him ride out wit his colorful robes and private love offerings he may have gave to himself who knows? No one can say he did or if he didn't but lets do this. While I was there I saw members come and go NEW MEMBERS ALSO!!! I witnessed the asking of money spat out over the mics he even excused visitors one service to discuss bills in which the heating bill was included. We needed the furnace fixed, roof, kitchen, windows, airconditioning all of that needed to be fixed. But it couldn't be all at one time he tried or did he do it to confuse the members to where the money needed to go cover up oh and did I forget the only thing that was completed was the dining area.LOL!! Now I read through all these comments: FAITHFUL MEMBER where are the lies? has anything changed since you've been there besides the fact that ur now cold-der in the winter or going to church in tanktops n city shorts to stay cool in the summer.

    NB who is this Niki Barrett Oh anyway. Maybe we should be ashamed of ourselves but we'll pray about it. How long have you been a member? What really happened to the other church HE HAD HELLO? The 3 H's Hoodwinked Hoodwinked Hoodwinked. Who are we to judge? who are you to judge the judgees? They judged him when they appointed him pastor right??!!MR. OR MRS.WOW, I'm sure you judge somebody er'day now how you know what there title is? Now I was there after the young men were asked to leave by ur pastor several members of the church(deacons too) asked WHY? as well. He never explained. DISGUSTED concerned you say aw thats bcuz they did love pastor and the church they were always with him. Did you say there family kept up mess from what I know they didn't and if they did so what. Cuz they were in disagreement and or left means they were mess makers. Y0u being so in love with your idol really blinded you huh he made a mess 10 years of it. Him being the leader was suppose to show in prove where all that money he stirred up during service where it was going cuz you couldn't see it around the church. Yo is the church van still in the same spot. And who was gon' vote him out. Ain't no deacons, there hearts grew cold and weary from no heat hot summers and bills that piled up over the years than the 14 services he tried to have all in one day... Sacrificed wat man come on how we know you was up stairs with the treasurers. Don't think so I was a few times in they would take hours doing wateva they do. But did you respond to everything he asked for think about it before you answer? How can you leave a congregation of people you claim you LOVE they bought gifts and flowers for you and your family. I don't think he gave up his salary if he did, probably cuz he felt guilty for spending the money irresponsibly. How long have you been a member again. Speaking on behalf of the young men again perhaps something got out that they weren't suppose to know about. Hell his own brother Ron B. left after he cursed your pastor out mmmmm... What was that about? Yea if you didn't give all your funds to him you would be able to follow him.Better yet since you got so much to say stay and pay 1 of them bills off respond to that n call him and tell him he proly still got starlight checkbooks DANG!!! Bounce Back

    Everybody is worshiping I.L.B like he is God. HE'S NOT!!! He's human like everyone else just because he's your pastor does not mean he can not do wrong! To Rev. Brow, I was a member of Starlight since I was in pampers, I've never seen anything like this at Starlight in my life. This church has never been without heat, a broke down church van, holes in the windows, etc. I personally know what my Godmother gives in offerings besides her tithes, so it's not the members. I've seen them raise close to $3000 in one Sunday, so why are ALLLLL the bills overdue by thousands of dollars? I've seen I.L.B get upset and lash out at people in church, but he's a true Man of God isn't he suppose to be humble? I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I know better than to steal from God. Maybe he thought he'd be able to get away with it.

    COMPREHENSION!!! No one said anything bad about T.L Barrett from what I read, it just states that they are cousins. I don't think the law is something we want to bring into this situation, because there is thousands of dollars missing right now! It's not slander when it's the truth!

    T.L. Barrett is maybe someone that his cousin should have paid some attention too but oooooops again how many times was he there. Even when Irvin invited other churches to come help him celebrate certain events and occasions sometimes they wouldn't show shoot they didn't show up if I recall he announced over the mics that some church was suppose to come and they didn't and he said well you know who your friends are NAW PLAYA THEY JUST PROBABLY KNOW HOW HE GOT DOWN. STARLIGHT PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS: THE TRUTH ABOUT IRVIN!!! DID HIS WIFE KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON WHAT ABOUT THE TREASURE TRUSTEES IN THE FINANCE OFFICE THEY KNOW THEM BILLS WEREN'T PAID IF STARLIGHT DIDN'T GET COLLECTORS CALLING THEM BECAUSE THE PHONE MIGHT HAVE BEEN CUT OFF I'M SURE THEY GOT IT IN THE MAIL!!! NO CHARGE
