calvarychapelabuse.com, 7 Dec 2012 [cached]
Former NBA player Nick VanderLaan, a recent money-giving member of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, tells his story of being detained against his will and then arrested for speaking out at a meeting to question the presence of the controversial Ergun Caner.
...
Nick shared the details with me months ago. Here's what happened in a nutshell from my recollection of our conversations and Nick's recounting of events:
He attended a special meeting at CCCM featuring Ergun Caner as the guest-speaker. Previous to the meeting, Nick expressed his concern to CCCM Leadership, believing he had the right and responsibility to do so as a giving member of the Church. His concerns were basically ignored.
At the meeting, Nick stood up to challenge Caner's presence. He was non-violent and merely spoke out and spoke up. Calvary Chapel Leadership knew who he was. Nick and his family were known quantities, attended a trip to Israel with Chuck Smith, counseled with pastors there, dedicated their kid at the CCCM pulpit etc etc.
...
The goon squad cuffed Nick up, took him to another part of the church, denied him bathroom and water and detained him against his will for a prolonged period of time.
Santa Ana police arrived later and arrested and charged Nick.
The ordeal took an expected toll on Nick and his family. The charges were eventually dropped by the District Attorney.
Adding insult to injury, Nick has tried many times to address the issue of both Caner and the detainment and subsequent arrest with Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Leadership...with "no attorneys"...basically Nick wanted to follow Scripture and deal with this in a Matthew 18 manner.

wonder what would have happened if Nick had gotten to the church before the man began speaking. That seemed to be his intention. I can understand the church getting angry that he went in there yelling in front of everyone. It';s not really an acceptable approach.
...
If more men were like Nick, church would be a safer place, in my opinion.
...
How disappointing I think it might be for Nick to find out CCCM is not the place he thought it was.
...
Now Mr. VanderLaan was / is a man of integrity, faith, concern for souls and other such as I have come to understand nonsense but should be commended. Given enough time in the corporation I think he will learn to repent of those inconveniences. I know I have prayed often to but still fail, and I am ashamed of that.
In my opinion Mr VanderLaan would be much happier and find less contention within the Church of Jesus Christ where biblical principles are followed. He is also in good company as the Apostle Paul stood up in the same way and was arrested and also vindicated.
...
It seems that Ergun Caner invited response with his bold statement and VanderLaan too him up on his invite.
...
That said - - - as I've been blogging about the Sovereign Grace lawsuit, sexual abuse in my own church situation, am familiar with the abuses at CC, don't you all find it ironic how fast CC got police and outside civil authorities involved in this situation to get VanderLaan arrested?
...
This is why this is serious to some and possibly why Nick VanderLaan risked his own arrest.
