A Kentucky pastor is drawing criticism for kicking out members of his congregation who failed to attend church regularly and contribute.

The Rev. Ryan Broers of Cave City Baptist Church told the Lexington Herald-Leader that he notified 70 people by letter that their church membership had been revoked.

The letter said members are expected to attend church regularly and to "give regularly" to its support.

The newspaper reported that some congregants were upset. Beth Gentry Carder said she stopped attending around a year ago due to work reasons. She says she no longer feels welcome at the church and has no plans to return.

Broers has been the church’s senior pastor for about a year. He said the letter is part of the church’s effort to rebuild.
