CHARLOTTE, NC—Sources within Elevation Church confirmed Friday that, moving forward, they will publish all of Pastor Steven Furtick’s words in their church bulletin in red.
“It’s about giving our great leader the reverence he deserves,” said Matt Marshall, an assistant to one of Furtick’s assistants, adding that the pastor’s words carry a special weight of authority that will be implicated by the font color.
“Pastor Steven’s words are holy, set apart, anointed. Similar to the way many Bibles handle the words of Jesus, we will publish all words of our dear leader Pastor Steven in red. Amen,” he added.
At publishing time, Marshall had confirmed that they will also begin to capitalize any pronouns referring to Furtick.
