(Shared anonymously) My family and I read this together everywhere. We don't hide or shelter our daughter because she needs to see the world for what it is. As I read it outloud my daughter is in shock at how nothing seemed out of the ordinary when we were always around the Feldschau family or at church on Sundays. My husband had reminded me of why he stopped really going to Faith Community. I remember the day my husband said he would FINALLY go to church with my daughter and I. We had been asking him forever to go to church with us and just try it out. He had met Jon outside of church somehow and really truly liked him.  When he found out he was a pastor he decided to go with us. The first time and the second time my husband became alive when he would hear Jon preach. He felt the true passion that was being presented, and then we as a family would discuss what we took from the message after church. The first day we all went and Neal was preaching my husband said that something wasn't right, he felt something almost negative as soon as we walked through the doors. We did stay and listen to the lesson for the day but my husband was very straight forward and made it clear whe he said "he would never go back again while Neal was speaking." For multiple reasons but the most important was he didn't feel the love and compassion that Jon spoke. He said he felt lies coming from Neals mouth when he spoke. "Jon speaks truth is what he told me." I should have known then that something wasn't right. It's hard for my husband to open up about his life to people. Jon and Stacy he felt comfortable to talk to and tell his life story to. As we read these every week my heart hurts for my friends that had to go through all this, my husband gets infuriated by the Preston's and their cult and my daughter is becoming more aware of reading people better and keeping her guard up until she can get to know people better. (She got her trusting easy from me, I an nieve and very gullible) I want to thank you for sharing these hard, triggering issue for you and your family. We need more people like you guys to speak up for the people who are too afraid to.

This was just anonymously submitted: "I am a former Ignite student who was abused by Mike Larkin. I am afraid to tell my story because I’m afraid my pastor won’t believe me. Please spread more awareness about what has happened in regards to abuse in Foursquare. I don’t want any girls to have happen to them what happened to me." It breaks my heart. We will do what we can to bring awareness. Thank you for having the courage to fill out our forum form and submit it. -Jon

We poured our heart, soul and finances into the building and people of Family Life Center! The Holy Spirit was moving and people we’re getting saved every week during a season right before Jon arrived. We were excited about the arrival of “the NEXT leader”, Pastor Jon, He did a great job building team, loving and trying hard THEN... he teamed up with the Prestons and the exclusions began. Matt and I were confused about being shut out and excluded. We deciphered we were not “cool enough” to be part of this new team. They made us feel invisible and unwanted. The Preston’s disrespected us in many ways. We witnessed the leadership team’s lack of love for the people. So, after many hours of praying, seeking and crying we left quietly. It was so painful to drive past Family Life Center, we sold our house on Greenhorn after 13 years of loving it. We have been so damaged from this experience that finding a new home has been tough. BUT ... GOD IS GOOD and we have decided to finally commit to our new church in Tucson AZ. Hallelujah! In His Love and truth Matt and Colleen Moore
