About This Ministry
Battered Sheep Ministry is a place of encouragement for sheep who have been wounded and victimized by authoritarian and legalistic churches.
This ministry was born out of personal experiences that we have been through in a couple of authoritarian/legalistic churches. As a result of our experiences, the Lord has given us a burden for people, especially those who are going through painful trials.
In the last few years, the Lord has been pleased to use us in some small measure to comfort some brothers and sisters in Christ who are going through the agonies and trauma of abusive churches. This website is the result of many years of personal trials and tribulations, and we pray that this site might be a blessing and a means of healing for those who are lonely, suffering, frustrated, and desiring to fellowship with others who have endured a similar fate.
Currently, Battered Sheep Ministry is primarily an information service, and the extent of our activities are to be found at this website. If the Lord wills it, the scope of this ministry may be extended in the future, but for now, it is chiefly a web-based ministry.
Paul is the founder and editor-in-chief of Battered Sheep Ministry. He has been a Christian for over 20 years and is an avid bookworm, with a broad range of interests. In particular, he has devoted a lot of his time and energy recently in studying the church, leadership, and authority.
Allan is the webmaster and editor of Battered Sheep Ministry. He experienced first-hand the dangers and damage that can be caused by authoritarianism in the church. Paul and Allan met while attending the same church.
