After taking heat for speaking at a stadium event with pastors described as prosperity gospel preachers and “false teachers,” Francis Chan has publicly responded to those concerns and vowed to continue speaking at events that feature people with whom he theologically disagrees.

The 51-year-old popular preacher and author who co-founded Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley California issued a lengthy statement over the weekend in an attempt to refute any negative “conclusions drawn” from his decision to speak at The Send conference in Orlando in late February.

The Send is a stadium conference that has been hosted in cities nationwide since 2011 by The Call, an organization run by charismatic Christian evangelist Lou Engle. At such events, a number of pastors and Christian leaders are invited to come and give a message.
