Ep. 176: Southern Baptists, Hillsong, Boy Scouts, and Ukraine

On today’s program, bestselling author Voddie Baucham is running for a senior leadership position in the Southern Baptist Convention.  But it’s not clear that he’s even a Southern Baptist.  Calvin University, one of evangelicalism’s flagship organizations, is struggling with LGBTQ issues.  It’s discovering that compromise often invites more trouble than just taking a firm stand.  And we take a deep dive into Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural” television ministry.  We begin today with the resignation of Hillsong’s Brian Houston.

A quick reminder.  I mentioned last week that Christina’s “Ministries Making A Difference” column is made up of information that we mostly get from our readers and listeners.  They send us news tips, press releases, emails, and links, and Christina chases down the details.  And that’s how we get a lot of our other stories as well.  So, if you have a story you’d like us to cover, or a ministry that you think needs a closer look, please email us.  Our email is [email protected].  That will come directly to my desk, and we’ll take it from there.

Also, a reminder that you can help the program by leaving us a rating on your podcast app.  The  more ratings we get, the easier it is for others to find us.  It’s a quick, easy, and free way you can support MinistryWatch.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Ben Warwick We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth.  Writers who contributed to today’s program include Anne Stych, Yonat Shimron,  Randall Chase, Kathryn Post, Scott Thumma, Kim Roberts, Bob Smietana, Roxanne Stone, and Christina Darnell.

Until next time, may God bless you.
