Bullying Vol. 1

The biggest risk to conservative evangelical church movements today is not the hostility of a toxic external culture. A far bigger risk to the movement, if recent sobering conversations I have had are any indication, is the internal toxic culture.

Bullying Vol. 2

We live in a fallen world and unfortunately the mistreatment of church workers is currently a widespread and serious problem among churches and Christian organisations.

When church workers are mistreated, in the short term it results in reputational loss for churches, and in the long-term it damages those church workers, their churches and gospel proclamation. In the worst cases fellow brothers and sisters can abandon the faith.

So, our purpose as the GWAG is to address this problem and create a different future for Gospel Workers that will be transformative for all the people of God.
