in the year of dissolution, some MH pastors continue with disclosures of material connections, case studies from Seth Winterhalter

Winterhalter is not a name that would probably mean that much even to people who have been inside Mars Hill Church, much less to outsiders.  However, the pastor is at a church plant spin-off/re:boot of the Mars Hill corporate entity and, as such, might be worth keeping at least some moderate tabs on.

The blog posts linked to below are fairly boilerplate.  In fact there's nothing about them that's particularly worth commenting on from the texts of the posts themselves.

But what is pretty new, compared to the sea of blogging done by MH-affiliated pastors and deacons, would be wording that's this specific:

Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links in the post above are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item, I will receive an affiliate commission. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Depending on one's assessments of Winterhalter as a pastor one may or may not wish to purchase the recommended books by following the links.  Mileage may vary.
