Surveyor Says! The NSPS Podcast
Eureka! While looking for a helping of Rice-A-Roni and a ride on a trolley car, “Surveyor Says!” The NSPS Podcast struck up a conversation with Warren Smith, L.S., Tuolumne County Surveyor and just happens to be the President of the California Land Surveyors Association (CLSA). He recently sat down with Tim Burch to discuss several topics central to surveying in the Golden State, including monument preservation after the devastating wildfires, effects of shifting tectonic plates and the role of the surveyor, and how membership in your professional organizations leads to more public awareness for the surveyor. Warren also shared his experiences of promoting “National Surveyor’s Week” on the municipal, county, and state levels with his fellow surveyors and technicians. NSPS would like to thank Warren and his fellow CLSA officers and members for the recent passage of an affiliate membership agreement between our organizations. We appreciate the effort completed to make this partnership happen. Thanks for listening to the “Surveyor Says!” podcast, and subscribe wherever you listen to your episodes.

The Significance of Christian Marriage with Dr. Warren Smith
Holy Conversations: The WCA Podcast
In an essay in The Next Methodism, Warren Smith, Professor of Historical Theology at Duke Divinity School makes the case that Christian marriage is a unique type of spiritual friendship in which husband and wife "encourage and challenge one another in the way of holiness." Bob and Stephanie talk with Warren about the importance of defining marriage and singleness within the biblical framework of baptism, sanctification, and resurrection, and discuss how a grounded theological understanding of sex and marriage can inform the theology and practice of the next Methodism. This is an important discussion for traditional Methodists who want to focus on what we're "for" when it comes to talking about sex and marriage. Order your copy of The Next Methodism from Seedbed.

Ep. 96: Warren Smith Discusses “Faith Based Fraud”
I recently did an interview about the book with my friend Bill Feltner of the Pilgrim Radio Network. It’s one of the great Christian radio networks in the country, serving millions of people in the mountain west. The interview was for Bill’s “His People” program. When I got a chance to listen to the interview, I thought it captured what the book is about, and what MinistryWatch is about, in ways that I wanted to share with you.So, this week’s “MinistryWatch Extra” episode is my conversation with the Pilgrim Radio Network’s Bill Feltner, as we discuss our newly re-published book, “Faith Based Fraud.”(To purchase the book, click here.)Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, all designed to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us. Regular listeners to the program know that each Friday I do a survey of the week’s news with my co-host Natasha Smith. But these mid-week “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes are just that, something a bit extra, a bit different, that we hope will help you understand a bit more fully what we’re up to here at MinistryWatch. What we do and why and how we do it.An important project of MinistryWatch over the past year has been the production of a new book, “Faith-Based Fraud: Learning from the Great Religious Scandals of our Time.” MinistryWatch published 500 copies of that book last fall and we gave them away to our donors until they were gone. Now, I’m pleased to report, a new version of the book is out from Wild Blue Press. It’s currently available in print and e-book formats from Amazon.The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy. We get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.Until next time, may God bless you.

ImaginePublicity on Air: Warren Smith author of FAITH BASED FRAUD
Inside Lenz Network
Guest: Warren Smith author of FAITH BASED FRAUD: A Clear-Eyed Look At Scandals Within The ChurchFaith-Based Fraud is a clear-eyed look at fraud in the church – from Jim and Tammy Bakker’s PTL Network to Mark Driscoll, Todd Bentley, David Jeremiah, and Bill Hybels. It is an answer to those who say that the silence of Christian leadership is approval. And although this book is sometimes tough on the church and its leaders, its purpose is not to tear down the evangelical church, but to restore it to its rightful place of influence in the culture and in the lives of people who desperately need its message of grace and truth.Warren Cole Smith is the President of MinistryWatch, which is dedicated to bringing transparency, accountability, and restored credibility to the Christian ministry world. He has served as vice president of The Colson Center for Christian Worldview and as vice president and associate publisher at WORLD Magazine. He hosts the long-running podcast “Listening In” and he is the author or co-author of more than a dozen books.
