The Story...

You didn't see it coming. You invested heart and soul in a ministry with a serious vision. You gave it your all, believing that you were serving the Lord.

But you began to be uncomfortable with some of the attitudes. You loved the teaching, but you were feeling pressured and controlled. Your questions and concerns were squelched. These are indicators of a high-demand system.

Sadly, you don't just leave a high-demand ministry, and it's all behind you. You have a lot of pain and confusion. Some of the consequences may take years to recognize and sort out. Read more about the issues with high-demand groups and the process of recovery from the damage.

Your experience is not unique...

It can happen in all kinds of churches and Christian groups, especially in dynamic ministries. The story of the Geftakys Assemblies shows how a high-demand ministry played out in a group that began in Orange County, California.
