Ep. 46: A Conversation with WORLD’s Michael Reneau

Hello, everyone.  I’m Warren Smith and I’d like to welcome you to the MinistryWatch podcast.  Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, all designed to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

Regular listeners to the program know that last week we began these “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes.  We will continue our regular Friday weekly roundup episodes.  Those are episodes I co-host with Natasha Smith.  But these MinistryWatch Extra episodes are a chance for us to “go deep,” you might say, with one of our editorial partners.  Today, I’m pleased to have on the program Michael Reneau.

Today’s guest is Michael Reneau.  Michael is the Editor of WORLD Magazine.  He came to WORLD after a successful tenure as an award-winning editor at The Greeneville Sun, a daily newspaper serving East Tennessee.

We start by discussing the latest at Liberty University.  We pivot in our conversation and talk about another story that both WORLD and MinistryWatch covered, and that was the story of Ravi Zacharias.  We then discuss WORLD’s article on Donald Trump and abortion, plus an article about the Q-Anon movement, a fringe movement that a lot of Christians were getting sucked into.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.   We get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.

Until next time, may God bless you.
