Former Agape Bible Church members come forward, say they’re abuse victims


[with video]

THORNTON, Colo. – Several former members of Agape Bible Church are coming forward claiming they have also been victims of sexual assault because of the church.

The Problem Solvers first reported last week that associate pastor Robert “Bob” Wyatt turned himself into police. He is accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl at church over a period of two years.

After police documents were released, the Problem Solvers reported that Agape’s head pastor Darrell Ferguson may have known about Wyatt’s alleged crime and did not report it to police.

Ferguson tells FOX31 under Colorado law he was not legally obligated to report the suspected crime since the information was divulged during a confidential counseling session.

Now former church members tell the Problem Solvers they believe Agape and Ferguson have a history of abuse and a history of covering it up.
