Disgraceful Waste: Bob Malm Flushes $2 Million in Church Funds Down the Toilet on His Personal Residence
Posted by: Eric Bonetti ()

With people now considering their pledges for 2019, this is a good time to take another look at where Grace Episcopal Church’s resources go. In that regard, a disturbingly large percentage of its resources and income go to support Bob Malm, a feckless and indifferent priest if there ever was one.

The linked article (a repost) also looks at the expenses the church will be facing in the next few years, which are exorbitant, and for which no effort has been made to save. Yes, there is the trust fund, but the 4 percent it throws off annually will be nowhere close to adequate, particularly given the reduction in funds dedicated to maintenance and repairs for the physical plant.

Keep in mind that the write off of $100,000 that Bob Malm owed the church came in the same year, 2014, as church members gave more than $25,000 to help the Malms following Bob’s accident. While this was perfectly understandable, I see no reason to toss another $100,000 of the church’s money in Bob’s direction. This smacks of the antics of megachurch pastors, with their luxury homes, private schools, and lavish vacations—just like Bob’s annual month at the beach.

How many Grace parishioners work at jobs that give $100,000 bonuses, even when work is substandard? Or allow the employee to spend a month at the beach ever year?

Note too, that as discussed in the article, Bob’s compensation exceeds that of both of the bishops in the office of the presiding bishop. Moreover, Bob still manages to live beyond his means, having apparently repeatedly been taken to court for unpaid bills, including what appear to be dental bills for his children.

Bob also appears to have directed changes to Grace School to meet his own needs, with parishioners alleging that the grades taught at the school were altered so that Bob’s son, James Malm, could attend school at the facility. While I appreciate the desire to keep one’s children close at hand, if true these allegations would suggest a highly inappropriate use of organizational resources for personal gain.

No wonder folks refer to the church as “Bobby Malm’s playground,” and “Planet Malm.”

Finally, keep in mind that, following Bob’s accident in 2014, the church was under no legal obligation to pay him until he returned to work in June (whereupon he promptly spent two weeks on vacation, followed by four weeks of vacation in Massachusetts.)

While I agree that ethically it was proper to pay Bob during his period of disability, despite the fact that it would have been a smarter approach to have disability coverage that would have provided for cash payments to Bob from the carrier, I see no reason to pay a bonus on top of it.

Note that Bob also continued to draw on the church’s disability policy (which provides payments to the church to cover supply clergy) for an extended period of time after he returned to work. I find this highly questionable—-well enough to work, well enough to stop collecting disability.

Knock it off. This is Christ’s church. What’s a few million here on there so that I and other men of the cloth might live in the manner to which we are accustomed?

Nice pic of your Mom! Who gave her the shiner? I do believe I saw your partner with bruises similar when he attended Grace. Was questionable amongst the parishioners back then. By the way you don’t know the truth if it bit you! You live in some kind of bizarre fantasy!

BTW, how’s pledging going? Think the parish is going to hit 200 pledges this year?

Oh, and when are folks going to share the real reason Fanny Belanger left?

I looked at your blog today and Kemp Williams is correct you are seriously mentally ill.

So glad to know that, unlike mental health professionals, you are able to make a diagnosis without meeting with the individual in question.

No doubt potential parishioners will consider the Christian tone of your comments before visiting the church; I am sure your remarks will have a similarly positive effect on pledging this year.

But then, you are too stupid to recognize that it’s idiots like you and Kemp who are the reason the church is imploding.

PS And when Grace Church does close its doors, which at this rate will happen sooner rather than later, in true Grace fashion you’ll be one of the asshats who says, “But I don’t understand it. It was such a friendly place.”

For those who haven’t seen it, here is the message from Kemp Williams to Bob Malm referenced above. I’ll post related materials in the next day or so.

Kemp’s messages illustrate perfectly the behind-the-scenes discourse that makes Grace Church friendly on the surface, toxic underneath.

Oh, and using Bob Malm’s weird reasoning, Kemp’s use of the word “dead” is a terroristic threat.

And these numbers warrant a $100,000 bonus, ON TOP of better pay than many Episcopal bishops?

It’s called throwing good money after bad.

What’s amusing, too, is that Potomac Energy Group, the same company that got Grace into its twin condensing boilers for the heating system —- which are so high-end that the church hasn’t been able to maintain them properly —- is the same company that the church has chosen to plan the new HVAC system.

More to come on this topic.

In the meantime, if you’re a parishioner, just ask church staff when the last time was that folks topped up the additive to prevent the boilers from failing prematurely? $20 says they’ll have no idea what you’re talking about. Or the last time the hot water heater was descaled.

Or as Bob Malm once said, “I have neither the time nor the interest.” That, despite getting paid almost $200K a year, and the contents of his letter of agreement.

And that warrants a $100K bonus?
