Henry McKay was the Pastor of Macedonia Pentecostal and had been in possession of the property and had conducted services and activities there regularly until his death, never appointing Juanita Dinkin as pastor, but told his widow Lizzie McKay to “not let those people take my church, I want my grandson to have it”.
In 2005, Willie McKay was accused by former Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of posing as the pastor of Macedonia Pentecostal, and transferring of title to Love Temple Church of Christ in Prayer, Inc. And using that property to secure a $1,150,000.00 mortgage.
