Ep. 207: Wycliffe Bible Translators, World Vision, Matt Chandler and The Village Church

On today’s program, more promises, but few details, from the Bible translation industry.  We’ll have the latest from Wycliffe Bible Translators.  And a former World Vision staffer gets 12 years in prison after an Israeli court found he aided a terrorist group.  But his supporters – including World Vision itself – say he’s innocent.  We begin today with the story of Matt Chandler, who is taking a leave of absence from his role as pastor of The Village Church.

I also want to remind you that if you made a donation to MinistryWatch during the month of August, you’ll receive a free one-year subscription to WORLD Magazine.  We’ve had such a great response, that we’ve extended this offer a few days, through the Labor Day Weekend.  So if you thought you’d missed this offer, don’t despair.  This is a fantastic opportunity to pick up a subscription to WORLD and support our work at the same time.  Just go to MinistryWatch.com and hit the DONATE button at the top of the page.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Jeff McIntosh.  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, Bob Smietana, Kim Roberts, Kathryn Post, Rod Pitzer, and Steve Rabey.

Until next time, may God bless you.
