Geoff Tunnicliffe is stepping down

I just spotted the news on Christianity Today that Geoff Tunnicliffe, the head of the World Evangelical Alliance, is stepping down, to make room for “younger leadership”.

The skeptical side of me wonders if this has anything to do with the minor fiasco over the WEA’s cancelled General Assembly in Korea. Or with Tunnicliffe’s controversial and extensive ties to David Jang.

Or maybe it’s just a normal turnover of leadership.

Still, I think the WEA would definitely be healthier if they were able to achieve more distance between themselves and Mr. Jang. It seriously is not good that a man whose followers long hailed him as a second Messiah is that close to an organization this important.
