    I don’t think this is fair. I know at least one CC guy on the list who has never even visited Costa Mesa.

    Paul,
    It’s a general observation speaking of the fact that CC pastors never have a say in choosing any level of leadership.
    Status is based wholly on connection to the top of the food chain.

  3. Steve says:

    I take it one step further. The average CC congregant has no say at all in anything that goes on in the average CC. I pray that these non-member members will eventually mature and grow up to understand that every member should be minister in the local church and CC in general is not conducive to this end. I question the lack of membership roles in these churches.

    ? Thanks for the good laugh Michael on the Broderson & Friends comments. Wildly funny. Not so much their organization.

  5. I attended a CC for 11 yrs. This is how the individual churches operate as well…basically its one ‘dude’ (with no formal theological training)..and his elite ‘guys’. That’s it. Congregates have no say in anything. Instead of membership, they encourage you to ‘serve’ until they suck the life out of you. ..Oh, and they are more than happy to take your money.

    i have a dear cousin that served as a CC missionary for years… my mother also had 3 brothers that were common sense, loving, good guys… my cousin would regularly send money requests to all the family. Finally one year one of my mother’s brothers (a large corporation exec.) told him that it was time for him to get off the dole and start providing for his family… He did; went back to college, got a useful degree. He and his family are still active in the church, but now he provides for his family very well – most of his children have college degrees and are either in ministry or good careers… it is possible to serve God without being in “full time ministry” at others’ expense….
    just sayin’

    Brian Broderson is the sole dictator of the CGN all the other guys are just his “Yes men”

    Let’s not forget the Brodersen who really wears the deep pocket pants.

  9. Michael says:

    Let me be clear…I have no issues with Brodersen other than what I said…the rank and file have no say in the leadership.

    Moses got direct vision from God and delegated all the work he couldn’t do himself to his choosen elders. Works in a theocracy but not so much in church. No wonder CC was built and sustained on the high octane fuel of Moses Model pastor and now is collapsing under its own weight.

    “Brian Broderson is the sole dictator of the CGN all the other guys are just his “Yes men””

    I’m not sure that’s the case. Brodersen has been described by many over the years as one who collaborates with others. And yes, he does stay, at least in the opinion of some, within a rather small circle. I agree with Michael on his assessment here.

    Brodersen also postures himself as man who has no time for such conflict, and is focused on his mission.

    I think the Oregon CC’s and any others who are out of touch with Costa Messiah are the lucky ones who can count this anonymity as one of their blessings.

    The “local connectors” are a great illustration of why the electoral college exists.
