Mahaney Sons-In-Law Receive Generous Severance Packages After Quitting CLC Jobs

September 11, 2011 in Sovereign Grace Ministries

We talk a lot here about how Sovereign Grace Ministries churches can be different from other conservative Bible-believing Reformed churches out in the “normal” world.  But what about how SGM churches might be different than anywhere else out in the “normal” world, church or otherwise?

I mean, is it standard operating procedure in most places to receive two weeks’ salary for each year one has worked at a position, along with 75% of the cost of one’s children’s Christian school tuition, and continuing health care coverage, all from a job that one quits?  According to what several members of Covenant Life Church have shared with me, this is what is being done for Mike Bradshaw and Brian Chesemore, the two sons-in-law of C.J. Mahaney who quit their pastoral jobs at Covenant Life Church because they no longer felt like they could “serve” those who had (supposedly) “slandered” and unfairly judged their father-in-law.

I guess it’s OK to take money from those same people, though?
