Intern Expectations

This information was gathered directly from a packet of materials that the church gave to its interns doing something called the MP Project in 2003.  While some of it isn’t all that bad from a biblical or practical  standpoint, certain points, such as the way they required their interns to agree to confess secret sin and receive prayer from other believers, are especially disturbing. In practice it was understood that this confession of secret sin was to the other believer that you would have pray for you. This practice meant that most leaders knew the deepest and darkest secrets of the people who served under them, and these confessions where often brought back up at other times and used to control and manipulate people in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. This practice has existed throughout the entire history of the church even if it is no longer placed in writing at this time.Read More…



We previously had copied and pasted some of the posts from the Reddit feed into this section of the website in order to enable people to more easily find the main stories that are listed there without all the smaller comments in between. However, after thinking about it, we have decided to take them down because once we have copied them to our site people lose the ability to edit those posts like they can on Reddit, and we did not want to remove that right without that person’s consent. So, if you have posted a story on Reddit we would encourage you to copy and repost it on this site under the STORIES section. If you would like to edit anything after you have posted it to this site, please contact us via the contact form and we will do our best to make the edits, however, we can not guarantee that we will have the time to honor all those requests, depending on the volume of them that we receive. In that case you are welcome to add an additional comment to clarify your previous one.

We are also encouraging people to post all of their stories in the Reddit thread initially (because it is receiving so much traffic), and then come and copy and paste it here as well for more organized and long term safekeeping. You may also want to consider adding a link to this site within your Reddit post in order to help make people aware of it.
