Spiritual Abuse in the Church: A Guide to Recognition and Recovery. -by pastor Ken Garrett for his Ph. D.

Grace Bible Church

I have recently completed a 7-year process of earning a Doctor of Ministry degree at Western Seminary.  My dissertation was a survey of Spiritual Abuse in the Christian Church, with a view towards understanding what spiritual abuse it, how spiritually abusive leaders act and speak, what are the marks of a spiritually abusive church are, and how healthy churches and pastors can be a part of creating a church community that welcomes the survivors of spiritual abuse, and helps them find healing for the abuse.  Many friends have graciously asked if they might have a copy of the dissertation, so I’ve placed it here in PDF form, and welcome you to take a look at it!  Spiritual Abuse in the Church. Dissertation Final

Blessings!

Pastor Ken
