Greensboro Pastor Gregory Drumwright church received over $100,000 in COVID loans, may have used to to purchase home


A sleazebag North Carolina pastor may be in some trouble if he doesn’t stop his scandalous and get-rich scheme ways.

Pastor Gregory Drumwright, aka Dumbwright, who is not worthy of taking a dog to the dog pound, let alone sit in a high position as a pastor, is back on The North Carolina Beat again, and this time it may be because of fraud.

Drumwright, whom the streets have called, Miss Drumwright is not new to The North Carolina Beat because recently I had to let the whole NC know that homegirl is a fraud, scammer and, as Cardi B said, will “do anything for clout.”


Recently, The North Carolina Beat learned that Drumwright’s finances are being investigated because of the previous story we wrote on him earlier this month. But, we’ll let the appropriate authorities do their investigation, and if any laws have been broken, we will report them.

After learning about the investigation, The North Carolina Beat launched its investigation into Drumwright and realized that he filed for two PPP loans and one Economic Injury Disaster Loan.

Now, this is the same CROOK IN THE NECK PASTOR who made money for himself off Andrew Brown Jr’s death. Brown was shot and killed by three Pasquotank County Sheriff Deputies on April 21, 2021, in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

Just one week after Brown’s death, Drumwright needed to make some money, so on May 2, he planned a rally in the name of Andrew Brown Jr and charged people $40 and $50 to ride on a bus to the rally. Not only that, but Drumwright charged vendor fees so vendors could sell their bullshit a*s products to those in attendance at the rally.

When is it okay for a black man to get gunned down by the KKKOPS and a so-called pastor use that opportunity not to pray for the community but to line his pockets? DISGUSTING AS F**K!

But Drumwright doesn’t get tired of helping the system that oppresses black people. He also lies to get what he wants to keep up with the Joneses and travel with Benjamin Crump, all while doing fraud in Greensboro.

According to the North Carolina State of Registry, Drumwright’s church, Citadel of Praise, is incorporated by himself and his mother, Mary Ann Drumwright with his brother Christopher Drumwright as the registered agent.

The church is now located at his million-dollar home, 4 Clubview Ct Greensboro, NC 27410.

Home of Citadel of Praise and Gregory Drumwright.

Before COVID, the church was located at 1800 E Market St Greensboro, NC 27401, a Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

According to one member of Drumwright’s ministry, they tell me that they were using this church’s gym to conduct City of Praise church services.

Drumwright’s church website citadelofpraise has East Market Street Seventh-Day Adventist Church address listed as well as Citadel Campus Ministries website, which is also Drumwright’s.

Drumwright’s church left the gym in March of 2020, according to Citadel Of Praise.

But on Drumwright’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan application, he used East Market Street Seventh-Day Adventist Church address and had to have assumed all responsibility for that church to get approved for $83,500 on June 10, 2020.

There is absolutely no way that Drumwright can be on the road with Benjamin Crump claiming he’s fighting for justice and need $83,500 from the Government. What does he need that money for when he and his mama are the only incorporators for Citadel of Praise Church? Not only that, but how can you say you suffered an economic loss when you were renting the gym from another church to have your church services? I mean, if you were bringing in more than $30,000 as a church before COVID, then your church should have had its own building by now, and you wouldn’t be using someone else’s…but we see what’s going on FRAUD.

On June 9, 2020, Drumwright’s church, Citadel of Praise, was approved for a $15,625 PPP loan, but this application was filed at the 4 Clubview Ct address before purchasing the home.

Drumwright received the $83,500 Economic Injury Disaster Loan on June 10, 2020, the first PPP loan on June 9, 2020, and bought his million-dollar home on October 16, 2020.

On October 16, 2020, just four months afterwards, Drumwright purchases his million-dollar home, according to Zillow.com and Realtor.com

Did Drumwright do FRAUD to get an Economic Injury Disaster Loan to purchase this home? He knows damn well that hole-in-the-wall church isn’t even bringing in the amount of money he lied and came up with to get this approved amount of money. Any intelligent person would see that he used the money to purchase that playboy mansion.

On March 16, 2021, Drumwright was approved for another $15,625 PPP loan filed under Citadel of Praise Church.

Do some of y’all slugs still believe he make legitimate money? Chile BOO the GAGS on YOU!

After further investigating, we learned that the organization Justice 4 The Next Generation (J4TNG) that Drumwright uses to make money off people was not an umbrella organization under Citadel of Praise as he has said but it seems like the mannaaGAWD got wind that I was getting ready to expose him yet again soon, and he went ahead and tried to get his dicks, I mean ducks in a row.

Let me just tell you how this man is a fraud even more. On July 29, 2020, this man started a $150,000 CharityGoFundMe under the name of Justice 4 The Next Generation, all while telling you all that Justice 4 The Next Generation “is a subsidiary organization under the umbrella of the Citadel Church Inc, Greensboro, a 501-c3-faith-based non-profit,” and according to the records I pulled today while writing this story, Drumwright nem just applied for J4TNG as a subsidiary organization on May 7, 2021.

Do you see how this receding hairline m**********r lies?

The question remains, what is Drumwright doing with all of this money?

Since he received the money, he has been having church at his million-dollar home, hasn’t stepped foot in the gym at the Market Street location, and has been on the road traveling and following behind Benjamin Chump, so how is the money being used correctly and for what congress issued it for? The simple answer is, it’s not.

At any time, the SBA can audit Drumwright for the PPP loan to determine the use of proceeds, such as whether the borrower used the proceeds for the purposes Congress enumerated and in line with the CARES Act’s central purpose of keeping workers paid and employed. Proceeds will need to have been spent on allowable uses specified under the CARES Act: payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, utilities, and interest on any other debt obligations incurred before February 15, 2020.

We all know his Maybach, house, and expensive bags and gifts all came from defrauding the government if you ask me, and he is probably filling out another PPP loan RAT now. LOL!

Citadel of Praise has received over $114,750 in government COVID relief money to date.

  1. The PPP is for recovering how much money you USUALLY would be making. So you’re telling me this church makes 100K a year but can’t get a building? Chile… the facts are there. Don’t y’all pray for vision half the year??

  2. Chile, since I see you have a lot of time on your hands and you also do reply… Gerald… Gerald … Gerald… if only you actually knew who this man really was. Maybe it’s for the views, the clicks, the likes, but anyone with good sense can tell, it’s for the clout. How did you edit that information on Zillow tho? Because the facts are he purchased his home from a seller Summer 2017 who end up moving to Texas after a bad divorce. Also since everyone can see us having church online in his “million dollar” home ; how do we literally have YouTube videos of us having “house church” beginning in March of 2020 if he purchased it in October 2020????? Let me tell you this in love, even though you probably will be disrespectful to me as well, you will never get to where he is nor anywhere near where he is going if this is your come up. This is not what you have to do to make ends meet nor anything else that will degrade you. God can still use you if you will allow Him to. The truth about Gregory Drumwright, is what our community rests in. It’s not because we fans, need his validation, mind controlled, etc… but when you have someone who will pull up when you are tempted to commit suicide, when your loved one dies, when you are about to be evicted… then you will know how to stand behind them when accusations attack them also. In addition, it was our goal to purchase The seventh day Adventist church. We had church in all 3 of their facilities as there are three. However, that particular church was bought out by a local university. Yes we suffered a major economic loss in regards to transitions and offerings declining like several other ministries. However, it’s not about whether we owned the church, it’s about the Economic loss endured. But either way, I truly doubt that the numbers you provided are factual. Go and be free Gerald. Jesus loves you.

    • Tierra, just because you live in a home does not mean you own it. As I stated in this story, and the next one that will be published shortly, Drumwright purchased this home on October 16, 2020, according to Register Of Deeds. I know the old white woman, Leslie or Lesly who he got the home from as well as the manipulative tactics he used to get this millionaire woman to make donations to his church. ?? thank God that some members have come forward and have given email receipts, pictures, times, dates, and places for this next story. I take it that you are brainwashed as well but you will be soon set free like the others that got free. Praying for you. ??

  3. It’s interesting that someone who has their own criminal charges for extortion, stalking and attempting to report fake news to the police is even allowed to run a blog. Nevertheless, I highly recommend that you find something else to do because there is no way that you are being productive by writing FALSE stories all day. As someone who knows Rev. Drumwright personally I had no other choice but to laugh at your inaccurate information, dates and screenshots. If you have so much hostility towards this man, why could you not have approached him personally? No, you would rather write a 3 page “blog” behind the comfort of your keyboard while attempting to tarnish someone’s character. I told you this on your last article, but “man of faith” get saved and keep your mouth off of my pastor because I can guarantee you that God does not play behind his annointed (Psalm 105:15). Be blessed beloved.

  4. ??? Gerald strikes again!!!! Damn so this just goes to show that this n***a ain’t nothing but a d**k in the booty a*s clown lol

  5. O wow… I hope they audit him now.. disgusting that he tried to use Andrew Brown murder to profit from the people he’s supposedly standing with… thank you for exposing the FRAUD and the SNAKE!!
