    wow… Amber I am so sorry.
    very similar things were said to me when I decided to leave. they told everyone I got kicked out because I was rebellious. and mike had told me that my church would be ashamed blah blah blah and crap that we’ve all heard.
    you are not alone.
    That was not God, that was simply horrible men trying to be God.

    the more i read these stories, the more I think the whole ministry needs to be shut down, as it doesn’t appear to be just 1 leader and his wife who are abusive, but many leaders.

    my daughter was in a secular program for troubled youth when she was 16, and albeit tough and disciplined, there was no abuse. The fact that PFM is a supposedly christian ministry makes this even sadder

    As a pastor now and former Police Officer (S.W.A.T) in my former employment, it just sickens me to hear that this kind of action by a “man” (small man at that) could actually be allowed by others including his wife to treat people the way these confessions are coming out is heartbreaking. If they don’t clear out Montana I may be forced to come out of retirement and help PFM see the error of their ways. As a Person who’s ministry is to help to reconcile people to their pastors & visa versa, it is not uncommon to hear & see these situations unfold. I believe the experiences shared because I myself had to take on an abusive pastor and assassination of my character still goes on to this day. These are not stories but real life examples of people who got waylaid by a guy who made himself a pastor. No real Pastor would behave the way these small men do. May God continue to heal all of you and keep looking to Jesus and one last thing…thank you for speaking up! Phil 1:6

    Amber???! Thank you for sharing! I am in awe of all the people coming forward. All of our experiences have the same thread of emotional and spiritual abuse. I’m so sorry that you had to go through this. You are a child of the most high God. Lord Jesus help us as we heal.

    I am so proud of Amber for listening to her psychological and spiritual self. She knows a person who is a true believer would not abuse, intimate, judge, manipulate people in the name of God. There is nothing in Ambers’s story that indicates this Mike and staff are Christ like. Amber knew, with God’s guiding hand, that she was in a very unChrist like environment. It took courage and faith in a real God to leave! She she be honored by those who know her and Mike and staff should not be allowed to be in any “training” position that may harm others.
    Thank you Amber for having the courage to bring this toxic and abusive environment to light. You may have saved others who are not as strong, faithful and courageous as you!
