Review for Gospel for Asia, Inc., Wills Point, TX, USA
In terms of accountability ... if you are OK with a continued messaging of urgent financial need coming from GFA, yet at the same time GFA India (or Believers Church) not using significant portions of stockpiled millions of dollars of donor money for what it was given towards - say over the years 2010-2015, and you are OK with the ends justify the means ideology - than by all means, turn a blind eye to a little thing called integrity within christian ministry and continue to do whatever you want with your cash, after all - it really is God's money. And if you are OK with equipping numerous young students with $4500 in cash to take to India and not report the cash to either the US + India (or staff), yet the total cash per trip exceeded $10k per trip (over a two year period of doing this), and you're OK with transferring $19 million from India to US - to finish a US campus, then carry on. Yet if you care about accountability and integrity, you may want to weigh and pray about where you give to. It has been heartbreaking to to see the reality of all that has gone down with GFA - from termination from the ECFA, and the truth former board member Gayle Erwin revealed, it's a sad time for those who dedicated their lives to the work, especially after serving there over a decade. Over 50+ staff left in 2015, let that sink in. An article from Christianity Today sums up alot: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2015/december-web-only/report-details-why-gospel-for-asia-lost-ecfa-membership.html
Recommendation - pray for current staff.
