    Well, looks as if the “no talk rule” has been blown to the theological place of eternal punishment!
    Doesn’t leave much to the imagination……..

    It’s always about money, sex, or power…….

    Time to get back on the Potter’s wheel……

    Thanks Craig!

    Excellent Letter, very much needed, well said, spot on, and 100% accurate regarding both Michael and Pam. Their narcissism and lack of Christlikeness has destroyed countless lives and tragically, they still feel they have done no wrong and they continue to justify their sickness and don’t care about whom they have hurt.

    We have watched, and experienced this for years. Until now, no one would believe us. They have verbally and spiritually stepped on, cultically destroyed, and spiritually and emotionally shipwrecked so many of their friends, families, and souls all along the way. It must be asked, if this is true, then what is the real truth behind what they have been presenting in their lives, testimonies, ministry, and book? What else is actually real? How many lies have they told? What other twisted viewpoints do they adhere to?

    They have failed to live out what they both have preached and performed for years from platforms and stages throughout the world. What they presented for years “on stage” has been vastly different off.

    God has finally answered hundreds of His children’s prayers and publically revealed them for who they truly are. Their wake of destruction and damaged lives, families, and souls demands they acknowledge their wrongdoing, experience true brokenness, deep repentance, and complete restitution.

    It appears that their response, up till now, reveals who they truly are inside, what and who they are truly worshipping and really do care about. Anyone else in their shoes, if even there was a slight possibility, or even an inkling all this could be true, and it is, would have already done so.

    When your attitude and words aim to hurt, belittle, demean, and destroy in order to control, when the focus is obviously on you and only “in name” only about Christ, this brings immense dishonor to the Savior who died for you, a reproach on the very nature and heart of God and also brings a very severe warning to those who harm His children.

    Michael and Pam have done both, tragically for years. It has been a consistent pattern. Strategically and purposefully. The masks have now been ripped off. In Oz, Toto has moved the curtain and we can no longer simply ignore the couple behind it. It appears that the great and powerful couple from Oz have been working levers, flashing lights, and producing smoke and we see the real people behind the masks – all that glitters has truly not been gold.

    And to think, it seems they didn’t start off that way. Somewhere, along the way they dethroned God and put themselves on it. The question remains, will God, way down the road, could He possibly use them again? Maybe. But probably not in the limelight. That way, He will truly get the glory. But only if, and when, and not until…

    If they don’t, it will be just them using their own stage pageant experience and presence and business skills to force and manipulate it – a facade of nothing more that will continue to produce wood, hay, and stubble; damaged lives, just in order to “keep the money coming in.”

    Somewhere along the way, they stopped being themselves, of being actually broken, truly humble, and pliable clay in The Master Potter’s Hands. Somehow and somewhere, they replaced The Master Potter in their lives and they became the Potter, themselves.

    Is it wrong of me to say that i thought of Ananias and Sapphira after i read this ?

    I’m not sure I would say evil, but definitely severely delusional.

  9. Billy says:

    The more the world knows about these abusers the better the truth will shine. There’s been years AND YEARS of grace afforded to these two. It’s time for the light of truth to set them and their victims free. The devil deals in secrets and thrives in seclusion. Please continue to expose these two for what they are, as they continue to fruitlessly hide behind Matthew 18 and their vain kingdom of idols they have built themselves.

  10. Chris McWhirter says:

    I concur….my wife and I entered into a 50/50 partnership in the winter months of 2014 2015. Mike you know how we supported you guys in town. I know you took advantage of the profit from Tamales and transferred them over to Mudman. I have explained my concerns and remain open to any legal action brought against you . I’m reluctant, but would cooperate with any attorney who would reach out to us.

  11. I was wondering how Pastors Craig and Mike McClure were involved in this. Apparently, they tried, and it’s also sad that this is causing major issues with those being served by the missions. Sad that it came to this and is still going on. I hope it’s known to parents and young adults to not support a resurgence in any way.

  12. DawnMarie says:

    Wow! There’s not much more to add to that. Thank you Michael for sharing this with the world, and thank you to Craig for speaking out!

  13. Michael says:

    Thank you, my friend…

  14. Anonymous says:

    I am wonder if it stopped at emotional and verbal abuse. Normally there is also sexual abuse invovled

  15. DavidM says:

    Glad to see this. But, did not Lindquist et al not know these things were going on years ago?

  16. DawnMarie says:

    DavidM- I truly believe no one spent enough consistent time with them to see them for who they really were. If someone did see glimpses of the evilness, Michael could sweet talk them into thinking it was a onetime occurrence or that it was just his “Intense Personality.” What normal person is going to think that someone is that evil. They would see Craig for maybe 1 to 2 weeks a year.

  17. DavidM says:

    DawnMarie – Fair enough. And I also commend Craig for this open letter, allowing the world to hear.

  18. The world years only because Michael got it. The letter should be posted on all CCA affiliated church websites though I imagine that would result in a huge uproar.

  19. X-man says:

    Not to minimize, at all, the narcissism and abuse, but this kind of evil in a ministry does not happen w/o being enabled by others. Craig is a good guy, but he has some culpability (and he admitted as such), yet board members have far more. Perhaps Don McClure has the most.

    Wolves like Mike are everywhere in ministries and churches, or course, but the CC model of leadership has aware of shielding or enabling people like this. Having said that, Calvary Chapels, even though it has declined greatly as of late, have many amazing people.

    Wolves are everywhere, but they don’t have to be in the Church.
