Bill Gothard / BJU / Van Gelderen, Sr. Scandal: “RNS Bill Gothard” Google Search: rns bill gothard

Bill Gothard trained people like Senator Mike Huckabee, former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (daughter of mike) & Sonny Perdue (head of department of Agriculture). I write about Gothard’s work & how he got politically entangled here: https://lambsharbinger.wordpress.com/2019/06/14/a-brief-history-of-fundamentalist-christianity-in-the-usa/

Here I trace Van Gelderen’s history with Gothard & family history at BJU & political entanglements with former WI governor Scott Walker… and also how the IFB have restructured as a “movement” since Gothard/BJU downfall, converging on Paul Chappell’s Lancaster Baptist Church & “West Coast Baptist College,” https://lambsharbinger.wordpress.com/my-story/
