AF44 Section Introduction




AF44 Section Introduction



This section, The Mysterious Disappearance of Angel Flight 44 (AF44), is the one in which my saddest obligations are realized. However, the tragic earthquake crisis now unfolding in Haiti infused me with the motivation necessary to populate this area of immediately…and without regret.

I received an email contact on Thursday, January 14th, 2010 from a Christian man who asked, “Hello Rich, Is Angel Flight 44 alive and well and running disaster response teams/relief? And is there a way to work with Angel Flight 44 in response to the earthquake in Haiti?” My soul was pierced by his sincere desire to help—and the knowledge that Copeland’s promised ministry was not a reality. After replying to him with the sad news, I gave this matter much prayer, and came to the decision that enough was enough. Consequently, I have been working feverishly over an entire weekend and into the following week in order to populate this section of with the shameful details.

Of course, I was the one who researched and wrote the book entitled Angel Flight 44, in which was told the story of those original missions and Copeland’s subsequent commitments. Now I have the distasteful task of setting the record straight about what appears to me to be an outright lie and a fraud. I have three clear purposes in mind as I do so:


  1. To hold Kenneth Copeland, his family, and Kenneth Copeland Ministries, accountable to a biblical standard of conduct. It is my sincere desire that public exposure of this unconscionable fiasco might result in their biblical repentance (i.e not merely an apology or counter-offensive public relations campaign, but true heartfelt repentance that results in appropriate good deeds).
  2. To warn the Body of Christ regarding the actual sinister character of that family and “ministry.” In so doing, I hope to insulate them from the Copelands’ errant influence while informing the partners of KCM regarding the probable abuse of their AF44-designated funds.
  3. To publicly clear my name from any culpability with regard to Copeland’s apparent lie and fraud. Proverbs 22:1 admonishes us that, “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” It is my biblical right and responsibility to ensure that my name and reputation as a minister are not tainted by their apparent hypocrisy and deceit.


With these three purposes above serving as my guiding principles to this section, I will  also endeavor to  be faithful regarding my testimony. I am well aware of the fact that the ninth commandment of God’s Ten Commandments clearly states, “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor” (see Exodus chapter 20). I am also very aware of the sober and grave warning of Revelation 21:8 that, “…all liars [will have] their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur.” (Of course, these same Scriptures are what cause me to have grave concern regarding the eternal destiny of the Copeland family.)

Thus, I am making every effort to be painstakingly fair and honest with my testimony within this entire blog . I am also providing copious resources (videos, documents, etc.) that confirm the truthfulness of my testimony. As the apostle Paul himself exhorted:


Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone. (Romans 12:17, Amplified)


I have biblical grounds for conducting such a public rebuke (as the opening section of this blog details), so I am not repaying Copeland “evil for evil” but confronting him in accordance with scriptural guidelines and examples. Of course, those same Bible precepts require me to be “…honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone” as I fulfill my biblical mandate; and towards that end I shall make every possible effort.

So in conclusion: this blog has been created out of an honest heart that truly desires to see the Copelands repent and to see the Body of Christ unsullied by that family’s error, along with a heartfelt compulsion to act upon my own integrity regarding these matters and to preserve my good name.

Now, with the above introduction in mind, please proceed to the AF44 Executive Summary for an overview, and then proceed from there as your time and curiosity permit.

Thank you for your time in reviewing these pages, and giving these serious issues much prayer and consideration.

Always in Jesus,

-Rich Vermillion

Rich & Donna Recommend:

The book, "The Midas Touch," by the late Kenneth E. Hagin is an excellent resource for sincere Christians everywhere. Within this book, the author confronts AND refutes the hyper-prosperity teaching of Kenneth Copeland, Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, Leroy Thompson, Joel Osteen, and many others. Hagin's approach to the topic is non-technical and balanced. Thus, this book will help Charismatics and Word of Faith adherents to "detox" their doctrine in this area. It can also provide a foundational teaching on the subject of biblical prosperity in a manner suitable for all Christians.

The Kindle (eBook) edition of "The Midas Touch" can be purchased from anywhere in the world. Amazon's free Kindle app is available for Windows and Mac computers and laptops, plus most portable devices like Android and iPhone smartphones and the various tablet devices.
