Calvary Global Network Announces Leadership Structure
It could also be defined as “Brian Brodersen and 11 close friends”.
Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with Brodersen working with people he knows and trusts.
The problem is that it continues a tone deaf tradition of ignoring pastors without some connection to Costa Mesa and leaving them voiceless.
In an organization bereft of any real identity or tradition, this serves to further isolate the majority of their pastors.
Here in Oregon, where there is a Calvary Chapel of some flavor on every corner, there is no local connector at all.
This despite the fact that there is a truly rare bird, a CC pastor with a doctorate, smack in the middle of the state.
He’s not a friend of Brodersen so Brodersen doesn’t even know he exists…just like a few hundred more pastors that Brodersen doesn’t know but needs to make this organization viable.
The Southern Baptist Convention seems genuinely interested in these guys, however…
In any case, this looks like the old unified Calvary Chapel and the other side of the split, the Calvary Chapel Association.
The guys at the top anoint themselves, then anoint their friends,and ignore the rest.
Times have changed…good luck with that…
