Related Calvary Chapel Concerns
Please note that immediately after Jerry Boykin spoke at Calvary Chapel Chino Hills (March 2-4, 2012), and Pastor Jack Hibbs was given documentation by SRN prior to the SoCal Prophecy Conference (March 1, 2012), the Knights Hospitallers website changed its links. Coincidence? All of the Knights Hospitallers links that do not currently work in the following letters can be found working at the new Knights Hospitallers website here, here and here. The Knights Hospitallers have removed much of their photo gallery which previously included numerous photos of Jerry Boykin and Rick Joyner. They have also removed their Knights Hospitallers DVD which upholds the Roman Catholic Order that the Knights Hospitallers really is. However, they still sell Jerry Boykin's books [Link no longer active on previous site, http://www.theknightshospitallers.org/catalog/ Updated Jan 12, 2015] and they are promoting their agenda to at least "400 million people worldwide" - with Rick Joyner [Link no longer active on previous site, http://theknightshospitallers.org/contact-us .

Calvary Chapel Pastors and CCOF Ministry
Reject Warnings About Ecumenical Jerry Boykin
Initial letter of request sent from Chris Lawson (SRN) to Roger Wing of CCOF Ministry
after speaking with CCOF Ministry office staff on the telephone.
(See original letter dated August 15, 2011 below introductory statements.)
DOCUMENTATION BELOW IS ORIGINAL SENT TO ROGER WING
OF CALVARY CHAPEL OUTREACH FELLOWSHIPS, INC - August 15, 2011
To date not a single thing has been done to stop Calvary Chapel ecumenism with Jerry Boykin.
(Updated - March 1, 2012)
The following e-mail is the original request that was sent to Pastor Roger Wing of Calvary Chapel Outreach Fellowships, Inc. (CCOF Ministry).
Urgent: For Roger Wing (CCOF) from Chris Lawson (SRN)
From: Chris Lawson
To: Roger Wing [E-mail withheld]
Cc: Christopher Lawson
Date: August 15, 2011 11:59:09 AM
To: Mr. Roger Wing - Calvary Chapel Outreach Fellowship (CCOF)
From: Chris Lawson - Spiritual Research Network.Inc. (SRN)
Hello Mr. Roger Wing,
I am writing to ask if we can speak on the phone together. I prefer to not speak over email, however, I have explained my concern briefly below. I am available after 3:00PM today (August 15, 2011) on my mobile phone number at [withheld].
I have been a Calvary Chapel pastor for approximately 14 years and with Calvary Chapel for about 25 years. On top of pastoring in Calvary Chapel and my affiliation in the movement, I have been researching, studying and exposing cults and spiritual abuse for close to 23 years now.
I have recently publicly left the Calvary Chapel movement because of what men are refusing to do - stand up for the truth and separate from known problematic teachings (teachers) and also the allowance of sharing speaking platforms with people that they should not be - Rick Warren, Leonard Sweet, Gen. Jerry Boykin, Danny Lehmann, Greg Laurie with Roman Catholic Priest at LifeFest, etc.
Many people, including church elders/leaders are tired of the compromises that many Calvary Chapel pastors are making. The compromises appear to be growing by leaps and bounds as time rolls on and sadly the Calvary Chapel Outreach fellowship appears to be sitting silent.
Much confusion is occurring in the Body of Christ because of these things. The leaders of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and Calvary Chapel Outreach Fellowship (CCOF) could effectively put an end to these compromises within the Calvary movement - but this is not happening. Hence, the reason why I left. I know many people who have left or are leaving the movement deeply grieved and confused.
Mr. Wing, I and others are deeply concerned about some of the speakers that will be speaking at the How To Walk 2011 conference that you and other Calvary Pastors are speaking with next week:
[ Broken link as of August 2014: http://www.calvarychapelofhonolulu.com/index.html ]
A number of the pastors in Hawaii have been warned about the teachings and/or affiliations of some of the speakers that will be at the conference. Because Calvary Chapel leadership has rejected counsel/warning, public exposure is ensuing.
I am simply wondering, is anyone going to do something about this, or is the problem, compromise, confusion, and ensuing abuses of authoritarian lack of accountability to Scripture and fellow pastors going to ensue.
Please call me within the next 24 hours if it is at all possible.
Sincerely in Christ and remaining loyal to His cause,
Chris Lawson, Director
