Former PFM Board Member Roger Gales Accused of Grooming Minors, “Non Consensual” Sexual Violation
We have previously reported that former Potters Field Ministries board member Roger Gales admitted to adultery and was removed from his position as pastor of Heritage SC church and resigned from his position on the PFM board.
We wondered at the time why Gales’s sexual sins were specifically noted to have been with “adult women”.
The answer is (as we suspected) because they weren’t.
In this shocking video we’re told by the pastors of Heritage that Gales started “relationships” with minors in the church that became sexual when they were adults.
That’s called “grooming” in proper sexual abuse terminology.
One of these was a “clear, egregious, sexual violation that was not consensual”.
The pastors have known this information since at least February of this year.
This is June…
We reported earlier as well that inappropriate behavior by Gales had been reported to Mike Rozell of Potters Field Ministries by interns, but had been ignored.
There couldn’t be a better hunting place for a predator than an organization of young interns on their own for the first time.
Rozell has an obligation to speak to this matter now, just as he had an obligation to act when first told of the violations.
The pastors say in the video that they want to put a period on this matter, ending the story.
The reality is that this is a comma…and if there are more victims out there, they need to report the abuse to the authorities, not pastors.
We have secured a copy of this video in case it is removed after this article is published.
