Ep. 53: Hillsong, Compassion International, and Willow Creek

On today’s program, a pastor in the popular Hillsong movement has been fired for an unspecified “moral failure.”  We’ll have details.  Compassion International reaches a financial milestone.   And we have the latest installment in our Generous Living series, the story of a young couple whose financial stewardship has motivated generosity in others.

We begin today with massive staff cuts at Chicagoland’s Willow Creek Church.

Each week, MinistryWatch brings you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective.  Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.  We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, and Casey Sudduth.  Writers who contributed to today’s program include J.C. Derrick, Steve Rabey, Warren Smith, and Christina Darnell.  Thanks to our friends at the Non-Profit Times and The Roys Report for contributing material to this week’s program.

Until next time, may God bless you.
