An open letter to the EFCA SE District Superintendent Glen Schrieber. John Secrest was once a part of the EFCA in Northern Illinois years ago. It is this blog’s hope that the district staff that work with Glen Schrieber can work with John Secrest and help him get on his feet and give him the support that he needs. John, would be a strong asset to the EFCA SE District, and this blog that writes about the EFCA hopes that Glen Schrieber understands this point.
This is the third open letter to John Secrest. This blog wants to commend John for fighting for his congregation and standing up to Chicago. The courage, humility, love and the brave stand that he took speaks volumes abut this individual. This is a man who should be a pastor. Its this blog’s hope that he will work with the EFCA in Florida and plant a church or work with another one and that John could get the current members out of Naples.

After all, when you consider what Secrest did and the courage he exhibited, why would you trade that for James MacDonald’s main enabler and yes man?
The former Senior Radio Producer for Walk in the Word releases a statement on Rick Donald as the Harvest Bible Chapel scandal continues to unfold. Josh Montez hopes other people will also come forward and speak out on the issues surrounding James MacDonald.
