    Why is it necessary for McCoy to mention that he is major of Thousand Oaks?

  2. Donner says:

    What a racket.

  3. Duane Arnold says:


    Mr. McCoy either knows what to do – as a result of his time on the Thousand Oaks audit committee – and is not doing it. Or, he does not know what to do – in spite of his time on the audit committee – and is not competent to be on the board of PFM to close it down. Either way, it does not speak well of him or his abilities (or lack thereof) in this circumstance…

  4. JM says:

    “Having heard of the trials that Potter’s Field had been encountering as of late, I came on board recently to assist in helping in the struggles that were being faced. ”

    McCoy spun it to sound like PFM is simply the victim of circumstance! Sick & Outrageous!

    Often people reveal their hearts by what they will not say.

    Hey Duane and others,

    I’m not close with Rob but have seen him throughout the years up close and personal. He’s certainly a man of action with a big personality – which quite frankly is going to be needed for this task. He also tends to surround himself with competent people who are action-oriented. Although he has known the Rozells for many years (20 or more?) He is a decent bridge and is not a total insider to PFM, but should know the situation enough to help wrap things up. He may feel a sense of obligation to help, having sent many students and staff to Montana over the years. One would hope his involvement in the political world will be motivation enough to do the dirty work and still keep his nose clean in the process.

    I’d be slow to throw stones on this one and maybe just ask him directly what the plans are.

  6. Michael says:


    I’ve reached out to him…waiting for a response.

  7. Jerod says:

    Rob McCoy is both a politician and a pastor? That’s interesting on another level.

  8. Duane Arnold says:


    I’m not questioning Mr. McCoy’s character, much less throwing stones. There are, however, standard procedures (such as those outlined by Michael in the article) that need to be undertaken to assure accountability and transparency in a situation such as this. Time will tell if such procedures are implemented by Mr. McCoy…

    I might add that such procedures are the first things than need to be put into place.

  9. JB says:

    You’re sure it’s not Bob McCoy, right? Asking for a friend…

  10. Paige says:

    Wow. Just wow…. You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but you cannot ever fool the All Mighty.

    …”I’m writing to share with you news that is both saddening and at the same time encouraging and exciting”.

    Exciting? Just what is “exciting” about any of this? So CCA is “sad” that the PFM is shut down “due to reasons entirely not related to the use or misuse of funds”… ?
    So he’s already made this statement that there are no money issues. Most importantly are the young adults and underage “children” that have been abused by Mike and Pam at PFM and no mention of them. There is no question of McCoy’s character, it stinks to high heaven. Money is number one with these pastors/mayors and whatever else they call themselves. Well like I said before, this sickens me and I hope they are caught with their hands in the Int’l cookie jars.

  13. Laura Scott says:

    God forbid the money train get derailed…

  14. Jessie says:

    No freakin way!? Seriously, “sad that Potters Field is closed”?!
    What about sad for the victims and survivors of Mike consistent abuse? What about an apology to the donors whose money DIDN’T go to the children and ministries they intended? I am SO sick of watching proclaimed Christian leaders act this way.

  15. London says:

    Unless he’s had a full audit by outside auditor completed, he’s unwise to say there’s no money issues at this point.

  16. Michael says:

    I will be speaking with McCoy on Friday…and I’ll be asking all the questions we all have.

  17. Kenzie Kinney says:

    Where’s the apology to us who had been abused for years? Why did I even come forward and spend weeks talking to the press in hopes of being able to heal and see justice?

    This is why no one speaks up anymore—nothing will change. Praise the Lord there are friends who I’d all but lost have finally been able to escape and I’d do this all again if it meant that was the only thing to come out of this but dang dude.

    They over there acting like we’re not suicidal or riddled with PTSD or have basically been living in our therapist’s office for years. They don’t seem to know what isolation and brain damage does to a person’s life.

    Why does no one care about us? What about us?

  18. Michael says:

    Kenzie…we’re still fighting…hang in there, my friend.

    “He’s certainly a man of action with a big personality – which quite frankly is going to be needed for this task. He also tends to surround himself with competent people who are action-oriented“
    No no no no no no no.
    That’s exactly what they would say about Mike Rozell. Those are the exact words that would be thrown my way every single time I would show a speck of doubt about how things were being handled. Someone’s personality doesn’t excuse them in any way, shape or form. You either do things right or you don’t. I know that the intention of the person that commented wasn’t to excuse this guy, but it just brought back memories. Those were the excuses they used “ Pastor mike is a passionate man, that’s why he talks (screms) the way he does” “pastor mike has a big and out there personality, that’s why he jokes the way he jokes” I was even told he had the gift of prophecy when he started telling me what would happen If I left the program before it was time, which was frightening. I’m still afraid of sharing my experience because its still hard to formulate my own opinion without feeling like I should share with “authority” to be validated. I’m scared that Michael will show up one day, “redeemed” “changed” or with the perfect excuse or explanation for everything and blame, shame and condemn every single person that shared their story.

    Does anyone see the amount of harm this psychopath has caused to so many using jesus name???

  21. Al says:

    Michael may I have your email?

  22. Anonymous says:

    Was just informed by a reliable source that Rob McCoy didn’t even write this. A PFM staff member did. Rob signed a blank piece of paper and told the staff member to write whatever because he’s “a very busy man” who has to catch a flight. They asked how he would be able to review it for approval and he said he wouldn’t need to and it would be fine.

    Wow. Just wow. Over it, guys. No one takes any of this seriously and I’m tired of trying. Too discouraged to care at this point.

  23. WWG1WWA says:

    The sheer audacity of all of this is breathtakingly satanic…

  24. w.h. says:

    20% ! ?

    posting merely for the sake of comparison:

    In 2017, 95% of every donation went directly into our programs that address the needs of the world’s vulnerable people. We value the trust you have placed in our organization, and we strive for the highest financial accountability ratings.

    includes real, long-term homes for real, cared-for kids

    for verification — Assist International Financial Information

    no, I do not represent the organization

  25. Michael says:

    Those who have been involved dispute that number.
    An outside audit is necessary to determine the truth.

  26. Kathy & Mike Lischer says:

    That’s sad! Praying for the Rozells & everyone affected by this fall. Thank you God Speaks for making sure our sponsored child is still cared for.
