This has certainly been quite the summer for HOPCC. Many things have been brought to light over the years, and now the public has become more aware of what goes on behind closed doors in this cult. Despite all that has been revealed, there are many inside HOPCC who are still blind or make the choice to cover their eyes to the truth. Some HOPCC members have started asking questions about the recent FBI raids that took place at 5 HOPCC locations across the country (Killeen TX, Tacoma WA, Fayetteville NC, Augusta GA, and Hinesville GA) in June 2022. The FBI raid has made national news and has also been covered on a few international news platforms. Despite this news coverage, Christopher Barnes, the pastor of the Tacoma, Washington church, claims to know nothing about the recent FBI raid at his facility when questioned by his congregants.

Since the FBI raid, all 5 House of Prayer Bible Seminaries have lost their GI Bill eligibility and will no longer receive benefits for their fraudulent school. According to an article on, "...officials from state regulatory agencies in Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas disclosed that schools connected to the House of Prayer church had been stripped of their eligibility for GI Bill money" ( 2022).

While this is a huge step in the right direction, this is barely the tip of the iceberg of all that is going on in HOPCC. As more have recently escaped, more horrific information is being reported about personal experiences inside the cult. If you are inside HOPCC and reading this article, YOU BETTER GET ON THE ARK BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. We are praying for you, and we are here for those who want help.
