Profile Of An Abusive Church


The purpose of this page is to educate the general public regarding abusive churches and clergy, so as to avoid harm by them. I do so here in a very personal way by documenting certain experiences with my former church and pastor.

Using as a guide the EIGHT CHARACTERISTICS OF ABUSIVE CHURCHES given in an article by Patrick Zukeran of Probe Ministries called 'Abusive Churches', I attempt to show you how my former pastor, Bishop Dr. Thomas Alvin Body (aka Bishop T.A. Body), his co-pastor wife Darlene A. Body, of The Church of One Accord, Decatur, Georgia, use MANIPULATION, INTIMIDATION, and DOMINATION to:

  1. Control the congregation; and
  2. Destroy the marriages, relationships, and reputations of those who disagree with them -- all in order to preserve power and image.

After resigning in January 2005, I was surprised to find later that my experience was not that unique. The problem of abusive and deceiving churches and clergy cuts across denominational, racial, cultural, and geographical lines. Even Jesus Christ Himself gave warning of this, and we must not only take heed -- but take ACTION.

Video and hardcopy documentation of my experiences in this regard are available here for review and free distribution. For any questions, contact me, Kevin M. Oliver, by email.
