Tim Stevens over at Leading Smart happens to be a friend of John Vaughan, president of Church Growth Today and confirmed that in fact, contrary to what the abpnews.com article tried to imply, Vaughan did in fact provide Jason Christy with the list of the 50 most influential churches. In other words, the list is legit.
Stevens went on to state that:
John Vaughan is a friend of mine, so I decided to go right to the source. I spoke with John today and it appears that Ms. Elliott was incorrect. John did provide the list of influential churches to The Church Report. Although he was aware of some of the accusations, he decided to partner with Jason Christy one more time.
Enough said. Again, thanks to Tim for setting the record straight.Hopefully, abpnews.com will correct at least this part of their article. Check out the press releases from Vaughan and Christy as well on Tim’s blog. Peace.
