Brent T. launched the original website The Geftakys Assembly.com in 2002 to expose corruption in the Geftakys Assembly ministry and call the leaders to take action. Early in 2003 the Geftakys ministry collapsed, and Brent handed over the website to us, Steve and Margaret Irons, to expand it in the direction of understanding and healing from spiritual abuse.
Little by little some of the great information on that original website will be appearing here on the blog, in shorter and more digestible posts. We are summarizing longer articles, or publishing them as a series of shorter posts. The full-length articles will remain on the original website.
We were former leaders in the Geftakys ministry. We are deeply grieved for the damage we perpetrated on others. Our work on the website and this blog is part of our effort to try to make amends in some small way. Margaret is now the editor of the main website and this blog.
(Note: “The Assembly” referred to throughout this blog had no connection with The Assemblies of God, nor with Plymouth Brethren assemblies, other than a common background.)
