Ep. 249: The King’s College, Johnny Hunt Sues the SBC, and the Richest Preacher in Nigeria Comes To The U.S.
On today’s program, we take a look at a Nigerian Prosperity Gospel preacher whose church, called the Winner’s Chapel, now has locations in 30 US cities. We also have new information about The King’s College, the Manhattan Christian college facing a financial crisis. And a well known Christian filmmaker has pled guilty to felony sex charges. We’ll have details.
We begin today with two stories about the Southern Baptist Convention. The first one is about former SBC President Johnny Hunt, and the second one is about Karen Swallow Prior.
I want our listeners to know that if they give to MinistryWatch during the month of March, they’ll receive a copy of my book “Faith Based Fraud: Learning From the Great Religious Scandals of our Time.” We’ve offered this book in the past, but it’s been more than a year since the last time we offered it, and we have literally tens of thousands of new people on our email list, so we’re making it available again. It’s our thank you gift for a donation of any size to MinistryWatch this month. Just go to the MinistryWatch website 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 Stephen DuBarry, Emily Kern, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today’s program include Jesse Jackson, Bob Smietana, Audrey Jackson, Kim Roberts, Anne Stych, Steve Rabey, Yonat Shimron, Christina Darnell, Meagan Saliashvili—and you, Warren.
