Contact: Warren Smith, 704-661-9137, wsmith@stewardshippartners.com

MATTHEWS, North Carolina, Dec. 4 /Christian Newswire/ -- Thursday, December 6th, is the date set by Sen. Charles Grassley as the deadline for six televangelists he is investigating to respond to his inquiries about their financial activity. Sen. Grassley has asked for information about compensation for key executives, and other key data.

Joyce Meyer of Joyce Meyer Ministries announced last week that she would comply. However, Creflo Dollar of World Changers Church International has indicated he may not comply, citing First Amendment grounds.

Rusty Leonard, CFA, is the founder and CEO of MinistryWatch.com, a donor advocate organization dedicated to helping donors to Christian ministries give wisely and effectively. MinistryWatch.com has been engaged in a near decade-long effort to expose the questionable activities of these ministries. Leonard's and MinistryWatch.com's work has already been highlighted on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and on ABC's 20/20, Good Morning America, and CNN's Headline News in the last fourteen months, contributed in part to Sen. Grassley's action.

The free MinistryWatch.com website is by far the leading source of critical financial and theological research on Christian ministries on the web and attracts between 4,000 and 6,000 visitors each day. Leonard and MinistryWatch.com's Director of Research, Rod Pitzer, CFE, the leading experts in the country in analyzing the financial activities of Christian ministries, are available for interviews related to Senator Grassley's investigation.

For information on how to schedule an interview with either Rusty or Rod, please contact Warren Smith at 704-661-9137 or wsmith@stewardshippartners.com
