Several bloggers have accused Charles Wade of cutting particular staff positions in order to get revenge. They base it on this post from this blog.
But the post indicates Ferrell is paraphrasing Dr. Wade. Dr. Wade also is addressing the board, especially the missions and ministry committee, not BGCT staff members with his comments.
Here is that section of audio in its entirety:
The staff cuts have been and are painful for all staff members. We continue praying for each other and know people around the state are praying for us as well.
But the cuts were not to exact revenge.
