Accountability at Calvary Chapel

The CCOF website talks about accountability of local Calvary Chapel pastors. Here's what their mission statement says:


The second major function of CCOF is how we would like to encourage accountability to God, to His Word, and to fellow pastors. Accountability is first to the pastor who ordained the applicant to minister. We will also look to our regional lead pastors located worldwide to maintain the relationship of personal accountability with the Calvary Chapel pastors located in their respective regions. We will be accountable to one another so as to avoid becoming an offense to our Lord, our fellowship of pastors, or to other Calvary Chapel fellowships.


So there are several tiers of accountability.


1 - the ordaining pastor.

2 - Regional lead pastors

3 - Accountability to other pastors.


Who are the regional lead pastors? The CCOF site does not name them. What is their authority in the local church should a conflict occur? Do the people in local Calvary Chapels know who the regional pastor is if they are in a conflict. What if the conflict is with a regional pastor or with Chuck Smith? How does a person find out who to go to if there is a conflict?
