Elevation Church Reporters Roundtable

Elevation Pastor Steven Furtick

Charlotte’s Elevation Church has been gathering increasing media attention. That’s due to its remarkable success, but also because of the secrecy surrounding church operations, which, when compared to the relative transparency of similar organizations, appears opaque. But in truth, there are few similar organizations and questions about the behind-the-scenes operations continue. We hear from three journalists who have been trying to report on the church.
