Ep. 90: Why and How MinistryWatch Does What It Does – Part 3

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 these “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes are a chance for us to “go deep” with some of our editorial partners.  But a couple of weeks ago we started a three-part series in which I was the guest, and Dan Burrell was my interviewer.  We play Part 3 of that interview today. 

Dan Burrell is a teaching pastor at Life Fellowship in suburban Charlotte, and he had me on his podcast called “Life Talks.”  We recorded three 20-minute episodes discussing MinistryWatch, our work, why we do what we do, and some of our recent stories.  The conversation turned out so well that I asked Dan if I could air them on the MinistryWatch podcast.  Dan graciously gave us permission to do so.   

To find out more about MinistryWatch, go to MinistryWatch.com and hit “About Us” at the top of the page.  We’ve recently added some new material there, including our latest financial statements, and our statement of faith. 

A couple of housekeeping items before we go:  

First, MinistryWatch is donor-supported.  If you’d like to pitch in to make sure that MinistryWatch remains a viable endeavor, you can go to MinistryWatch.com and hit the “donate” button at the top of the page.  And if you give a gift of any size during the month of April, we’ll send you a copy of a book I co-wrote with Marvin Olasky called “Prodigal Press:  Confronting The Anti-Christian Bias of the American News Media.” 

If even a few bucks is too much – I get it.  I’ve been there, too.  But there’s something easy and FREE you can do to help.  And that’s to rate us on your podcast app.  The more ratings we get, the easier it is for others to find us on the search engines.  So it’s a great way for you to help out, and it only takes a few seconds.  And, by the way, though I can’t respond via the podcast app, I do read all the comments, and they’re both encouraging and helpful.  So…THANKS! 

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.   I’d also like to acknowledge the producer of Dan Burrell’s program, Britt Nipper, who provided invaluable assistance with this three-part series.  Thanks, Britt. 

Until next time, may God bless you.
