Ep. 321: Acts 29, Grand Canyon University, IHOP, and Remembering Donald Wildmon

On today’s program, one of the early members of the influential Acts 29 church planting network is leaving – and going public with its reasons.  Grand Canyon University, now the nation’s largest Christian college, faces new legal challenges. And we remember Donald Wildmon, the founder of the American Family Association, who recently died at age 85.

We begin today with news that the shakeup at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City continues…this time with the exit of another high level executive.


Last week I promised to give a final accounting for our year-end fundraising. We had a year-end fundraising goal of about $117 thousand, in the months of November and December.

I’m pleased to report today that we met that goal. We still have checks coming in the mail, but it looks like we will top out at around $150,000, which is significantly above our goal.

To those of you who gave to MinistryWatch, let me say thank you.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am. Four years ago, just weeks after I took over at MinistryWatch, we set a year-end goal of about $15,000. To see how we’ve grown over the past four years has been humbling and gratifying.  I’m grateful to God, and to you who read, listen to, and financially support our work.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Jeff McIntosh.  We get database and other technical support from Stephen DuBarry, Rod Pitzer, and Casey Sudduth. Writers who contributed to today’s program include Steve Rabey, Shannon Cuthrell, Kim Roberts, Daniel Ritchie, Steve Rabey, and Christina Darnell.

.Until next time, may God bless you.
