Dave Harvey Responds on C J Mahaney

Dave Harvey (who is temporarily leading SGM) responded;

"We understand that this news may strike some as sudden and surprising. However, a process has been unfolding over a number of months in which the board has sought to evaluate charges against C.J., assist him in examining his heart and pursuing reconciliation, and bring accountability and guidance to him in this process. Because some of the charges move beyond C.J. to SGM, we also wanted to examine ourselves and our practices both past and current. To that end, we are in the process of securing help from an outside organization that can conduct a thorough and objective review of the charges being brought against C.J. and SGM. We are seeking to identify an organization that has no prior history with us and that has wide respect in Christian circles, and we will keep you posted on that search process as we make progress. We have by no means guided this process flawlessly, but we are learning and growing through this long and difficult process. And we are encouraged by how God appears to be leading us".

I think Mahaney has made a bold and humble move to step down and admit these things. No one is perfect and no one is beyond need of grace - and hopefully by God's grace he will accomplish what the Lord hopes for his life - and be restored to his unique giftings in whatever way is deemed appropriate.

I would suggest people read these documents to catch a glimpse of the inner-workings of the men that rule this org.

Very sobering.

I am praying for God's will in this situatioin.

Thanks Debra,

I've read the documents from page to page (benefit of being able to read fast!) and have been thinking about the stuff inside quite deeply.

It is sobering.

I don't think ANYONE with a shred of integrity should read these slanderous documents and anyone who does is clearly guilty of gossip in the worst degree!

Who would have guessed Dan? It is shocking. and good. I feel the same way as you in that I hope for the best, whatever that means.

Anonymous, I'm sure I'm wasting my time addressing you but here goes anyway...these are not slanderous documents, they are factual, it isn't slanderous to reveal the truth, it is evil to try and cover the truth. And reading something could never have anything to do with gossip, that's just silly. And guilt? haha, I shouldn't be surprised, that's your specialty, accuser of the brethren. News flash, you're not scaring anybody and you are making yourself look like a fool. God bless.
