Testimonies by Those Impacted by
Philadelphia Church of God

It is not how many abusive details that a survivor can recount and describe in order for their story to be considered important. It is how the individual perceived their experience to be detrimental, or even life shattering, that counts.

NOTE: Names have been changed for confidentiality, unless otherwise noted. Not all stories are posted and we reserve the right to refuse to post.
