Yet there are projected to be long term issues in other parts of Baltimore. The EFCA ReachGlobal has responded to the situation and Stillmeadow Community Church which is led by Michael S. Meadow is being used as a staging area for floor relief. Today’s post deals with how the EFCA responds to a disaster in the community of Baltimore.  Continue reading

Inside the EFCA are Neo-Calvinists Violating the “Significance of Silence” to Hijack Churches?

Greg Strand recently wrote about the “Significance of Silence” at the EFCA blog. A follow up response post featured a comment by the North Central District Superintendent Brian Farone and two key Neo-Calvinist churches in the EFCA – Bill Kynes Cornerstone here in the Washington, D.C. area and Josh Black’s First Free Wichita located in Kansas. Despite what is said about the “Significance of Silence” The Wondering Eagle believes that Neo-Calvinists are violating the concept as they hijack churches inside the EFCA. A painful story from Brian’s district in Minnesota as well as how Josh Black flipped First Free Wichita only validate the claim that in regards to Neo-Calvinism the “Significance of Silence” is failing inside the EFCA.  Continue reading

Publishing a Comment that was Not Approved on Greg Strand’s EFCA Post on the “Significance of Silence”

The Wondering Eagle is writing about an EFCA church hijacking by Neo-Calvinists outside Minneapolis in the North Central District. Linda left a comment on Greg Strand’s blog post about the “Significance of Silence” and the comment never saw the light of day. I honestly hope this is an accident or that the comment went into the spam folder. Linda tried to reach out of the EFCA regarding her situation for some time. And most of the time the EFCA has mostly ignored her communications.  Continue reading

Why Brick Lane Community Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania Will be Far More Dangerous than Community Evangelical Free Church

Brick Lane Community Church in Elverson, Pennsylvania has broken away from the EFCA. This church has a problem and I believe its now far more dangerous than Community Evangelical Free. What makes this church more dangerous? It is accountable to no one and the next time there is an inappropriate  church discipline situation nothing can be done.  Continue reading

How Should the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) be Viewed? Well it’s Complicated

Someone from the western United States emailed me and asked what are the problems in the EFCA? They are new to the organization and are trying to figure it out. I decided to tackle their question and give an overview of my thoughts about the EFCA from the 10,000 foot level. The EFCA has some great people, churches and leaders. However, it also has serious challenges inside the organization. This post from The Wondering Eagle looks at the EFCA from a broad perspective and offers analysis on the organization.

Brick Lane Community Church Joins The Gospel Coalition, and Challenging a Misleading Statement from Steve Estes Church

Brick Lane Community Church has exited the EFCA. Its statement in the local Elverson, Pennsylvania press was deceitful. It stated that they had to vote to separate from the EFCA and then align with the The Gospel Coalition. This post at The Wondering Eagle pushes back against that corrupt statement. After all in Eddie Cole’s Eastern District there are 15 EFCA churches involved in The Gospel Coalition. Plus it was learned that the most prolific pastors are Bill Kynes and Benjamin Vrbicek. The Wondering Eagle would like to ask, can Merle and Dave Stoltzfus and Steve Estes be honest?  Continue reading

I sincerely hope a statement by the EFCA can be issued for the peace of Elverson, Pennsylvania.  Continue reading
