The University Religious Council voted to revoke Faith Christian Church’s membership yesterday. Here is their official statement )via Warren Throckmorton at http://www.patheos.com/…/university-of-arizonas-university…/):

University Religious Council

University of Arizona

Effective immediately, the University Religious Council (URC) at the University of Arizona revokes from membership the organization known as Faith Christian Church and its affiliates Wildcats for Christ, Native Nations in Christ, and Providence Club.

Reason: The number, seriousness, and pattern of red flags raised compel URC members to no longer believe that Faith Christian Church and its affiliates operate at the highest level of integrity, transparency, safety for students, and respect for students, standards required for URC membership. This has come to light via numerous letters and testimonies recently sent to URC members which have brought to a head historic and current concerns related to the campus activities of Faith Christian Church and its affiliates.

Unanimous decision of greater quorum gathered—

    URC made the wrong decision.

    • I can tell you this, at first they could have gone either way. But the weekend before the vote they got flooded with stories of abuse that FCC has perpetrated on people for the last 30 years. By the time all the stories came in, the vote was unanimous: 15-0. You either have to be the greatest conspiracy theorist or just realize that where there is that much smoke there is fire. I would think that a man of God who was faced with so many people from Tucson to New Zealand to Florida would pause to ask himself, “Gee, maybe I should consider the possibility that I am wrong here.” But no. Instead, Steve Hall doubles down and says everyone who has spoken out is of the devil. Ask yourself this: how can it be that everyone who has left these churches have all left for sinful, rebellious reasons? What are the odds?

        Exactly… Why have no former members who still support the church spoken up? Where are they?

        Some former members of FCC haven’t spoken out because Steve Hall has shamed publicly ALL Christians who speak out against another Christian, regardless if that person (church leaders) are abusing their members, saying it’s a grievous sin and if they speak out darkness will follow. He even said it was a grievous sin to even read anything on social media about another Christian. Twisting scripture again, Steve? Steve Hall is trying to keep the public from knowing about the abuse taking place in his church and the offshoots including Hope Christian Church. Steve didn’t expect that instead of being fearful, former members are FEARLESS, exposing him and leaders for what they are…SPIRITUAL ABUSERS! Do your part people. Read, listen, pay attention, voice ur concerns, stay informed and notify friends and loved ones to stay away from FCC, HCC and all other offshoots….
