Ep. 225: Liberty University, SBC Prez Bart Barber Rebukes A Predecessor, and MinistryWatch’s “Shining Light Awards”

On today’s program, in an unprecedented move, the current president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Bart Barber, has released a sharp rebuke of one of his predecessors in that role, Johnny Hunt.  We’ll explain why the rebuke, and why it’s important.  Also on today’s program, MinistryWatch releases its “Shining Light Awards.”  We’ll tell you how we arrived at the list, and who some of the winners are.

We begin today with the latest chapter in the ongoing saga at Liberty University.  A former administrative dean for academic operations is suing Liberty University for $20 million, alleging they fired him because he was a whistleblower.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Jeff McIntosh.  We get database and other technical support from Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today’s program include Bob Smietana, Steve Rabey, Kim Roberts, Anne Stych, and Jessica Eturralde.

Until next time, may God bless you.
