Welcome to our site! Exit & Support Network™ supports and assists those who have had their personal lives shattered or affected in any capacity by Worldwide Church of God*, Philadelphia Church of God, or any related controlling splinter group, or offshoot.

We are an ongoing research and information service for former members and survivors and were established in 1993.

Spiritual Abuse & Exploitation

After involvement with destructive, authoritarian, religious groups, many suffer spiritually, emotionally and psychologically. Without education to understand what happened, they can feel alone in their feelings and experiences. As a result, many can suffer for years, carrying feelings of guilt, shame, fear, separation, and an inability to feel a connection to God’s unconditional love and acceptance.
