I’m copying a few posts here from another good site for Fellowship information – Escape from the Fellowship (Yahoo Group), as it gives another angle as to why Nigel and Wayman decided to interrupt the (Pastor’s name) church planting momentum. It’s clear from the text that Ken doesn’t have all the details of what went […]Read More The Croydon Affair – a very insightful post by former Fellowship Pastor
This is one of the best articles on the subject of abusive discipleship I have ever read. I came across this article while doing some research around the topic of discipling, and although its quite a long read it gives some great insight into the pitfalls of having discipleship programs in a church. The main […]Read More The Other Side of Discipleship
I’ve decided to link the article here, as it gives another side to the story from the Pastor’s perspective. From the timing of the article, I would guess that Pastor Brown orchestrated the first one, to discredit this Pastor’s claim to the Croydon PH, and in turn he responded with the second one.

The Secret History Visit any Potters House website or facebook page, and you find that they all have something in common. The ‘History section’ or ‘About us’ page, will without fail state that the Fellowship was “Started by Wayman Mitchell in Prescott, Arizona in 1970”. There will of course be slight variations in the way […]Read More A section of The Potters House History that Wayman Mitchell doesn’t want you to be aware of.
The following account was left in the comments section on another article, but I think it deserves a blog on its own merit. For those wondering what it was like being a disciple in a Potter’s House church, here you go. “Hello all. I will now recount my remaining memoirs of life under a power […]Read More My Pastor the Dictator – A personal account from a former disciple.

If you were a member of U.K. Potters House Fellowship circa 2008/2009, you would have certainly felt the ripples of what I have chosen to call the ‘David Vicary Scandal’ that took place over 2008, leading ultimately to his resignation as Leader of the Australian Fellowship in January 2009. I chose the term ‘scandal’ as […]Read More Another Fellowship Cover Up – The David Vicary Scandal & all leaked documents.
I just had to post this on here. Pastor’s contract This is the 2004 ‘Covenant Letter’ that a new Pastor is required to sign, before he either pioneers in a City or takes over a church from another couple. There is just so much in this letter that screams for the new Pastor to put the […]Read More The ‘covenant letter’ you must sign if you become a Potters House Pastor
I decided to post a link to this document (which is available at The Cracked Pots site – link below, along with many other leaked documents). If the Prescott church was taking in $7 Million almost 15 years ago, just imagine how much money is going up the financial tithe pyramid in 2015! One thing […]Read More Prescott Church took in $7M per year back in 2001 – imagine how much goes to the top of the Tithe Pyramid in 2015
