    Does the Church suffer from some sort of “sit down, shut up and go with the flow” syndrome? Do we try to stay beneath the radar as we don’t want to take any hits for the Faith? We want to be appreciated?
    Shame, if so…..

    Perhaps this victory will encourage others who are owed to file suit? All in all, there are plenty of gold-digging supposed Christian leaders out there. May there ranks be thinned!

    Keep following them like a hound dog who never loses the scent (more like a stink in this case).

    Didn’t PFM receive PPP $ from the feds? Correct me if I’m wrong, but ultimately, they are paying these people with money from the public coffers instead of their own. No lesson to be learned there…

    They got about 45,000 for the sham ministry…

    It’s Not Enough

    “While I am grateful to God and the State of Montana that a measure of justice was given to five of the Rozell’s victims, it’s not enough”.

    Let me begin by emphatically stating that I am also exceedingly thankful for this financial restitution. It is a sliver of justice served, but a sliver nonetheless. The problem is no amount of money is capable of healing the unseen wounds sustained by those five people and the innumerable others, myself included, who will never be rightfully compensated.
    I am fairly positive I will live a life haunted by the insidious things that happened to me during my time with Potter’s Field. I pray that the wounds heal and the scars fade in a way I can’t imagine at this point in time. To be candid, though I got out in April of 2019, the pain hasn’t lessened, it simply looks different now than it did before. There isn’t a day that goes by where I’m not effected in some way by what I went through those years ago. My heart aches even more, knowing that I’m not alone in my suffering. There are many of us out there who have survived abuse at the hand of PFM.
    Would I sleep better at night knowing the Rozells, specifically Mike, acknowledged the error of their ways? If they at least apologized for hurting so many individuals? If they sought redemption? I believe I would. Yet, they have not only remained silent, they have put energy into telling the world the exact opposite is true: they have decidedly called us (former interns and staff members) out as liars. Twice they appealed the wage claims, but I promise no one who has ever known Mike Rozell personally is surprised by that fact.
    This brings me to the point that disturbs me most, and there is much about this topic that disturbs me deeply: with no recognition of wrong-doing in sight, surely more people will be hurt in the future.
    There is an extensive trail of brokenness that follows the Rozells spanning their nearly thirty years of “ministry”. No amount of money, power, fits of rage, or the like have satisfied them in the past. Who or what is holding them accountable now? There has been no change of heart, no change of mindset, as evidenced by a complete lack of remorse and outright denial of the truth of what they have done. I fear there is a clock ticking on the public “good behavior” of this duo. It will be too late when the next young person with a good heart and pure intentions falls into the snare of these wolves in victimized sheep’s clothing.
    Reluctantly giving five people the money that was rightfully theirs to begin with is certainly not enough. And clearly the great damage perpetrated against a countless number of people was not enough for Mike and Pam.
    As for me, it would be enough to know they could never abuse anyone, particularly in the name of God, ever again.
