Matt Chandler Joins Christine Caine, Sadie Robertson Huff for ‘Preaching’ Conference

The Village Church Pastor and professing complementarian Matt Chandler joined a gaggle of lady preachers for a two-day Passion conference two weeks ago, advertised as ‘by preachers, for preachers’ where ‘communicators can develop and sharpen their art and heart for preaching” and where female preachers waxed eloquent about the importance and power and responsibility entrusted to them. 

The women preachers included Christine Caine, Priscilla Shirer, ‘pastor’ DawnCheré Wilkerson, and Sadie Robertson Huff.

First the obvious: But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. — 1 Timothy 2:12-14.

While it would be one thing if these women were teaching only and exclusively women, this is not the case. All four women preach and introduce to mixed audiences during church services, particularly Wilkerson, who is a ‘lead pastrix’ of a church in clear violation of the scripture. 

Compromise, thy name is Matt Chandler.

Perhaps the worst part of all this is how unskilled and awful these women are. They’re not even good teachers to women, much less men, and any person being taught by them is being done a great disservice.  

Sadie Robertson Huff. To quote EDW ,” She’s being groomed to be a false teacher and is ultimately a product of megachurch culture.” Gaining an audience because she’s a pretty celebrity, she’s a lousy preacher, objectively so- rarely connecting the scripture to the point she’s trying to get across. She’ll say some good things here and there, some truths with a lot of fluff thrown in, but she’s not teaching from the text. If this weren’t bad enough, she frequently gallivants with false teachers, including heading up a new conference with Modalist TD Jakes and Joyce Meyer. She should not preach to anyone, particularly about the art of preaching, given her inability to handle the text.

Christine Caine is the charismatic, egalitarian, one-time leader from Hillsong who preaches the word/faith prosperity gospel. Caine holds to the notion that Jesus died on the cross to give you possessions, wealth, and health, and that it is there for the taking if you have enough faith and confess it positively. It’s no surprise then that she cut her teeth on Hillsong, the Brian Houston-led boondoggle that has a reputation for being among the most immature, Scripturally ignorant, and carnal people in the history of the world ever to call themselves Christians. 

She also leads Propel Women, a network designed to empower women to become preachers and pastors who have cut their teeth on Caine’s teaching. Oh, and she too loves T.D. Jakes.

Priscilla Shirer. Frequently preaching the Sunday morning service, when she’s not advocating for mysticism and contemplative prayer or preaching and teaching alongside Trinity-denier T.D. Jakes, she’s demonstrating with startling clarity why she is such an objectionably terrible preacher and bible teacher, recently framing scripture as just “hand-me-down-the-revelation” that is not sufficient.

DawnCheré Wilkerson is the lead pastor of Vous Church. Other than being a miserable preacher whose sermons end up being scattered, emotionally driven affairs that don’t connect to the text, she and her husband had a part in the infamous Megachurch Blindsides Church Plant by Selling Building, Abandoning Congregation – ‘Today is Last Service Ever’ betrayal. They knew full well that a church congregation was about to be sinfully blindsided and abandoned, and they did nothing about it.

While Chandler has a long history of preaching and teaching at conferences alongside weird and wonky women, given the subject matter and purpose of the conference, how he acts and behaves speaks louder than his website’s statement of faith ever could.

  1. “preaching that … cultivates humility in us” – Except when it comes to humbly submitting to the Lord, and honoring His word.

  2. Man.. that’s a big bunch of heretics to preach alongside with… I hope he pulls another ” You’re not David!” sermon and get’s uninvited for future events.
