      Message from Stephen Flatt to Lipscomb employees

      April 07, 2005



      This afternoon, news will break that I have been named senior vice president for development at National HealthCare Corporation. I was recently approached by NHC about this opportunity, and after prayerful consideration and consultation, I have decided to accept this position.

      This decision in no way reflects any dissatisfaction on my part with Lipscomb or the great work being done here. Thinking about leaving Lipscomb University, my alma mater, has been one of the most difficult decisions of my life. I truly believe Lipscomb is a premier academic institution, whose Christian context is unique, and I have been very pleased with the progress we’ve made and the position Lipscomb is in for future growth. I will continue to have a great affection for Lipscomb. I’m very pleased that my son, Lee, will be enrolled at the university this fall and that my daughter, Rachel, will continue her studies at the campus school. I have great confidence in the Board of Trustees and the decisions they will make regarding a successor.

      As I mentioned to you earlier concerning the opportunity at UTC, sometimes God leads us in ways we may not expect. I believe God’s hand is in this opportunity and I am eager to see what the Lord has in store for my family and me through this new ministry.

      I see education and senior healthcare as aspects of ministry. Both provide opportunities to help people at critical times in their lives. At Lipscomb, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to help students; now I’m going to focus on helping to insure and improve quality of life for those in their retirement years.

      I deeply appreciate the wonderful support that you have given me since the beginning of my presidency in 1997 and particularly for your well wishes during these past few weeks. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Lipscomb University in new and broader ways that will become available to me through my new work.

      I will always bleed Bison purple and gold.

      Steve

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?


    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site; http://www.concernedmembers.com/madison

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
