|Elder James Gilley Winning over the staff...can he win over the board?

There is clearly a new wind blowing at Three Angels Broadcasting
Network, Inc. Staff reports are that Elder James Gilley is a clear
breath of fresh air, compared to the Founder, former president and
consulting, home building, director Danny Lee Shelton.
Staff consistently compliment Elder James Gilley's open door policy,
his warm and friendly and even very appreciative personality. Elder
Gilley's sincere and heartfelt spiritual tone and that nasty habit of
COMPLIMENTING STAFF on a job well done is clearly also greatly
appreciated by staffers.
Some have commented that it helps to offset years of the reclusive,
exclusive, barnstorming, arrogance and less than appreciative
attitude of the prior president. Some have gone so far as to comment
they see no need to keep the "drone" around anymore.
Staffers claim the working atmosphere is less terrorized, clearly
more wholesome and productive and some have actually suggested they
may be inclined to make it a career with the new President, Elder
On the other hand, reports abound that some Danny worshipping board
members are less than happy with the choice of Elder James Gilley as
the pre-eminence and dominance of Danny Lee Shelton wanes into the
sunset. The concept of Christian leadership under Elder James Gilley
is out-weighed by years of dominance by the miracle producing, wife
dumping, private inurement seeking, natural wonder of Thompsonville
and the political gamesmanship they claim he was just so good at.
Until recently, Elder Gilley's detractors on the board felt "the
anointed one" of Thompsonville had finely honed his political power
and successfully brought the Shelton brand of poison pill politics
into the denomination with a keen eye on cleaning out the
denominational leadership of 3ABN detractors. Elder Gilley's
detractors are clearly not happy to see the political powerplayer
being set aside to achieve a new day of "Spiritual Correctness" being
ushered in by the Elder James Gilley administration.
Elder Gilley's unique promotional trips to the churches have also
gone far to improve a failing image of 3ABN. Instead of begging for
money and speaking incessantly about the 3ABN miracle, Elder Gilley's
old fashioned sermon style followed by prayer sessions and taking time
to meet, listen to and pray with the folks is winning back many
stockholders in the pews. Elder Gilley's "spiritual correctness" is
clearly having a positive impact and will go far to repair the damage
of the Shelton Shadow over 3ABN.
We trust that as the new era of Elder Gilley's "3ABN Spiritual
Correctness" builds momentum with the stockholders in the pews that
3ABN must be open and transparent and accountable to the stockholders
in the pews. Let us pray that Elder Gilley continues to maintain the
open door policy to the stockholders and Elder Gilley will outlast
and win over his detractors. 3ABN will be returned to "spiritual
