The Calvary Chapel Association announced this afternoon in an email to their pastors that George Bryson would be starting his own movement and those pastors who decide to join with him will have to change the names of their churches.
While the release to the CCA member churches made it sound like an amicable parting, that’s not exactly how it went down.
Multiple sources have confirmed that the CCA first tried to kick Bryson out, then found that they had no authority to do so and reinstated him.
At this writing, I do not know how this current agreement was reached.
What I do know is that when the founder of the movement died he was in agreement with what Bryson has been pounding on…and that this split may only be the first of more to come.
I also know that this signals to all a new chapter in the history of Calvary Chapel.
More to come…
