Living Faith Christian Fellowship Brookfield, MO
There are many, many Living Faith Christian Fellowships. The purpose of this post is to make clear which Living Faith Christian Fellowship we are discussing. The bishop, Mark Bullen, lives in the county outside of Brookfield, MO and the church meets in his home.
The side of Mark Bullen's van reads "Living Faith Christian Fellowship." The rear doors display "Living Faith = Repentance and Obedience." You will see the large passenger van in and about Brookfield. Most people probably assume it is for the church youth group, but it's really his family's van.
A good number of the townspeople in Brookfield actually refer to the members of Living Faith Christian Fellowship as "Bullenites", since they follow Mark Bullen and are considered wannabe Mennonites. They are known for sending letters to townspeople that have pools in their yard where people can be seen swimming and accusing local employees of attempting to lure men by their clothing. They may or may not be trying to "lure" men, but Mark Bullen and his followers have made a name for themselves by making such accusations when most people avert their eyes to avoid being lured.
Sorry if your Living Faith Christian Fellowship has been confused with this one. The details listed above should make it clear that not all Living Faith Christian Fellowships are lead by a man named Mark Bullen in Brookfield, Missouri. Living Faith Christian Fellowship in Brookfield, Missouri has no ties whatsoever to any other church bearing the same name, or any other name for that matter.
