As the result of an approach by Royal Naval Air Service officers who had been operating armoured cars on the Western Front, the First Lord of the Admiralty , Winston Churchill formed the Landships Committee , on 20 February 1915.  The Director of Naval Construction for the Royal Navy, Eustace Tennyson d'Eyncourt , was appointed to head the Committee in view of his experience with the engineering methods it was felt might be required; the two other members were naval officers, and a number of industrialists were engaged as consultants. So many played a part in its long and complicated development that it is not possible to name any individual as the sole inventor of the tank. 
On November 3, 2006, Haggard's resignation of leadership of the National Association of Evangelicals was accepted.  On November 7, Leith Anderson was appointed as the new president. Later, the board cited the bylaws of the megachurch and said his conduct compelled them to remove him from his job.  The "Overseer Board of New Life Church" released a statement on November 4 that Haggard had been fired as Senior Pastor of New Life: "Our investigation and Pastor Haggard's public statements have proven without a doubt that he has committed sexually immoral conduct." Ross Parsley , the Associate Senior Pastor, was then named Haggard's successor. Haggard then entered counseling by a team including Jack Hayford and Tommy Barnett who stated their intention to "perform a thorough analysis of Haggard's mental, spiritual, emotional and physical life," including the use of polygraph tests. The team was to include James Dobson, who later stepped aside, citing time constraints. H. B. London, Focus on the Family 's vice president of church and clergy, took Dobson's place on the team.
