Outside the Shelby County Courthouse, dozens of Matt Pitt supporters gathered, hoping this would be the day that their pastor would be set free.
But that was not the case.
"I mean, I'm just shocked," said Larry Pitt, Matt Pitt's father.
"It's just a sad day. Matt never tried to harm anyone. We just regret that he ever took that badge," Pitt's mother Missy Pitt said.
Matt Pitt will spend at least the next 10 months in jail. It's a punishment his attorney Daniel Boman says doesn't fit the crime.
"Matt is not a bad guy, he's certainly not a felon. So, this is just a waste of time and taxpayers money," Boman said.
But Shelby County District Attorney Robbie Owen doesn't agree. He says with the actions surrounding Pitt's probation violation, he had no other choice.
"He's not in the position to conduct a ministry in my judgement at this time. So, I didn't think I had any other choice except to file a motion to revoke his probation and we did," Owen explained.
With Pitt remaining in jail, questions surround the future of his ministry. The main one being how can the basement move forward without their leader.
Missy Pitt says the answer to that is easy.
"You can't stop the gospel, It's 2,000 years old, you can't stop the gospel. It's not built on a man, it's built on Jesus Christ," she said.
Pitt's family and supporters say they're moving forward with The Basement ministry and continuing their mission to "Free Pitt."
