The leadership meeting of April 8, 2015 continued with one of the Bible School teachers asking the senior minister if he would consider counseling because of the management style issues that had been brought to light. She had spoken to others who felt they needed to leave the church. As she put it, these were long-time members who had watched the senior minister grow up in the church for over twenty years, who could no longer sit under his teaching. With all that was going on in the church, did she not have a valid point to pose her request? I’m just asking.

From the book:

“Steve looked at her and began questioning the validity of her being at the meeting. She had been teaching in his church for two years, and he didn’t know who she was. He pivoted quickly to take the victim role. His technique was commendable.

‘Um, I will say that I have some very godly counsel, as I have gone through pain,’…”
