RICK WARREN / ED STETZER AND A PLETHORA OF NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS BOARD FORCES JOIN LEADERSHIP NETWORK TO PARTNER IN PANDEMICS .
Rev Thomas Littleton 4/27/2020
THE HARD FACTS
PANDEMICS ARE THE FUTURE
Many including this writer had noted the readiness of organizations associated with Global Health being quick to label various strains of the Coronavirus as PANDEMICS when only a hundred or so infections were reported. There are two certainties in what has become the Global Pandemic Industry :
1.Lots of funding is associated with talk of a Pandemic both for “Research” & “Response”.
2.Global Pandemics have a clear and decided political alliance with the LEFT and Global politics driving Global Economic, Global Health , Global Governance and Sustainability.

RICK WARREN HAS BEEN CAMPING IN PANDEMIC CANNAN FOR YEARS.
“WOODSSTOCK OF GLOBAL HEALTH ENDS WITH SOLUTIONS “
“What U2’s Bono called the ”Woodstock of Global Health” ended this week after more than 500 leaders offered solutions to global health challenges.”
“Global Summit Illustrates Increased Respect for Faith-Based Health Care”
“NEW YORK _ Hours before the December 2004 tsunami hit Southeast Asia, pastor Rick Warren got a 4:30 a.m. e-mail from a church in Sri Lanka. They had just had an earthquake, the pastor wrote, and it was so big that there was bound to be a tsunami.”
“Warren mobilized his network of churches. “We had a team headed for the coast before the tidal wave hit,” he said.”
“Speaking at the opening of Time magazine’s three-day Global Health Conference on Tuesday (Nov. 1), the author of the best-selling “Purpose Driven Life” used the tsunami relief example to explain how churches could be mobilized to deliver worldwide health care.”
“I can take you to a million villages around the world that don’t have a clinic, don’t have a post office, don’t have a hospital,” Warren said. “But they got a church.”
“The fact that Warren was a summit speaker along with luminaries like Bill Clinton and Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, the famed Columbia economist, illustrates how faith communities are increasingly seen as major players in the global health arena.”
“At the summit, sponsored in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders touted their health efforts, bickered over challenges, and discussed how they can succeed where governments fail.”
DETAILS OF 2005 TIME “WOODSTOCK OF HEALTH”

2. Sir Richard Branson said the Virgin Group believes new technologies will kill germs such as avian flu on airplanes.
3. CNN Co-Founder Ted Turner became committed to the Measles initiative, as health experts from the WHO and UNICEF revealed a 60 percent reduction in measles deaths since 1999. He gave $20 million from the UN Foundation.
4. President Clinton championed generic AIDS drugs as a cost-effective solution.
5. The Methodist Church announced a plan to fight Malaria by providing radio transmitters to broadcast health information.

BY 2016 FELLOW LEADERSHIP NETWORK DISCIPLE ,NOW DISGRACED WILLOW CREEK PASTOR BILL HYBELS HOSTED MELINDA GATES IN HIS GLOBAL LEADERSHIP NETWORK SUMMIT.
MONEY COMETH FOR PANDEMIC PARTNERS
“The United States is looking for alternate partners to carry out health programs previously supported through the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to freeze funding to the United Nations agency, American officials indicated this week.”
“Trump administration officials are conducting a 60-to-90 day review of the Beijing-influenced W.H.O.’s response to the novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19) ravaging the world.”
LEADERSHIP NETWORKS HISTORY WITH GLOBAL MINDED PARTNERSHIP EVANGELICAL LEADERS.
No other single organization has done more damage to the church in the last 35 years than Bob Buford’s Leadership Network. Recruiting young, ambitious, innovative pastors stealthily behind the scenes by “invitation only” coaching and promotion went on with little notice for over 30 years until the aging Buford published “Drucker and Me” . It it he bragged about his own vision of transforming the church by injecting corporate coaching and management into young pastors like steroids into aspiring athletes .
Without Buford and his networking of money flooding into the church – there would have been no “church growth movement”, no emergent heresy (at least not by that name) and you would have no idea who many Christian “celebrity pastors” are. Guys like Ed Stetzer, Tim Keller, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels and many other names would likely be doing something else like selling insurance or pastors of small congregations with only local followings.
Some might even be greeters at Walmart given their lack of GOSPEL GRASP, real marketable skills or capacity to frame original thoughts.
But Leadership Network is both at the FOREFRONT of the movement to position the church in the “global pandemic industry “post covid 19 world AND is a primary force in having staged the church to accept this role as THE Gospel ministry vision.
CENTRALIZED PLANNING FOR THE CHURCH
NOTE: The Drucker archives at Claremont College reveal that Bob Buford not only admired his management guru Peter Drucker for his thinking on Management. Buford also expressed his great admiration for the Centralized Planning of Lenin. SO- the coordinator of these major trends and trajectory toward Global Health and the Pandemic Industry for the church is part of Buford/ Leadership Networks own “Centralized Planning”.
BUFORD THE PROUD GLOBALIST
Buford was a proud globalist himself meeting annually at the Aspen Institutes June Aspen Ideas Festival which is a massive new age think tank for global moves and shakers. Buford even took evangelical leaders like Rick Warren to the new age Ideas Festival.
In “The World We Want ” guide to global philanthropy Buford boasted he could”deliver legions of wealth Christians primed to become BIG TIME PHILANTHROPIST ” to the Globalist world vision.
Buford and his disciples have worked hard at making this boast a reality. Meanwhile the church under their sway has become a recipient of global philanthropy including now the Global Pandemic Industry.
2020 PANDEMIC PARTNERS LOBBY FOR POSITION
Along with the Billy Graham Center’s Send Institute, Exponential, Catalyst, and ARC, we helped conduct a survey of church leaders and pastors’ responses to the COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. The purpose of this polling is to help church leaders get a feel for where things are regarding the state of the Church and significant challenges as they adapt to their new reality of remote ministry. Check it out!
COVID-19 Church Survey Second Round Report
HOW CHURCH LEADERS ARE RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGES OF COVID-19
Andrew MacDonald, Daniel Yang and Ed Stetzer
“Churches are not exempt from this sense of uncertainty as they try to carve out new routines for weekly services and ministries in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“In partnership with the Billy Graham Center’s Send Institute, Leadership Network, Discipleship.org, and ARC, Exponential conducted a survey of church leaders and pastors’ responses to the COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. The purpose of this polling is to help church leaders get a feel for where things are regarding the state of the Church and the significant challenges as they adapt to their new reality of remote ministry.”
“According to the 1,500+ church leaders who were surveyed, pastors and church leaders are experiencing the same uncertainty that we are seeing in other industries during this crisis. Churches are not exempt from this sense of uncertainty as they try to carve out new routines for weekly services and ministries. This most recent edition of the survey builds upon many of the same questions as our previous report while also exploring in greater detail the impact of the crisis upon the financial state of the church and the mental health of the pastor. We are well over a month into the crisis and many have been on shelter-at-home orders for several weeks.”
“In the complete findings of this report you will find:
- Trends in innovation
- Church leaders’ outlook on uncertain finances
- Current top priorities for church leaders
- The emergence of collaborative platforms
- Trends in church leaders’ mental state in relation to significant workload increases”

EVERYTHING COMES IN NIFTY KITS/ PACKAGING
PREDICTION :NAMB WILL OPEN A SEND RELIEF CENTER FOR PANDEMIC RESPONSE !
“Sweeping changes ahead for 8 state conventions”
NAMB IS “REVISIONING “
A LEADERSHIP NETWORK TRAINED CONSULTANT AT NAMB
The conventions’ goal: adding value to their churches.
Colorado Baptists — the first to launch a broad revisioning — are now in the second year of a process facilitated by Will Mancini, a Houston-based church consultant/coach and author.
The church that is thinking it can partner with Global Goals and Global Health fails to recognize the PURE GLOBAL EVIL DRIVING THIS MOVEMENT.
They miss the Gospels calling to come out and be separate ( 2 Corinthians 6:17 ) and warnings that to be the “Friend of the World is to be the Enemy of God. ” (James 4:4)
While Ed Stetzer and his SEND INSTITUTE disciple at Wheaton are warning Christians NOT to spread Conspiracy Theories about Covid -19.
….Stetzer himself AND HIS PARTNERS are conspiring to align the church with Global Pandemic Industry along with his fellow Baptist and long time Global / Gates partner Rick Warren.
IN MANY WAYS PANDEMICS ARE THE NEW GLOBAL WARMING AND THE EARTH WILL HAVE NO REST FROM THE POLITICS AND LUST FOR GLOBAL POWER WHICH DRIVE THE PANDEMIC INDUSTRY.
THANKS TO GLOBAL MINDED LEADERS -THE CHURCH IS BEING CALLED TO PARTNER WITH THESE SCHEMERS AS THEY PLAN AHEAD FOR THE NEXT EVENT.
