Update on GFA Shutdown In NZ
Warren Throckmorton has an update on Gospel For Asia possibly trying to salvage their New Zealand office…by sending two Americans to run it.
While they’re down there doing damage control, they might want to update the “endorsements” page on the website.
I find it fascinating that a Calvary Chapel pastor outside the U.S. has no problem calling a spade a spade when it comes to GFA.
He even seemed to say that he was speaking for the “greater Calvary Chapel family of churches”.
I find that odd as the three former Calvary Chapel board members of GFA have been rendered mute and many of those with the closest ties to GFA have stayed mute from the beginning.
While the mute lead the blind, Gospel For Asia is doing it’s normal year end fund raising blitzes through the media and churches.
If someone writes one of those former board members and raises a question about GFA they will be told that it’s a “he said/she said situation”.
Evidently, Skip didn’t send the memo to Brian Hughes, who was on the board of GFA NZ and found the allegations true.
Heitzig’s statement didn’t just hang the donating public out to dry, it hung out the many CC pastors here who have publicly dropped GFA.
Perhaps this is just another area where the “greater Calvary Chapel family of churches” disagrees…or it may be that a pastor in New Zealand is showing his American counter parts what character looks like.
In the mean while, somewhere in Albuquerque a God fearing person is writing a check to GFA believing that it is all going to the field…
