Ian says his brother, Jordan, a minister and street preacher, disappeared from downtown Austin on the evening of October 31, 2016.

“I feared the worst,” says Ian.

Several days later, Jordan called his family and told them he was with the Church of Wells. The family gathered a group to travel to Wells and try to bring Jordan home.

“When Jordan walked in the door, all I could do was hug him and cry,” says Kim. “He looked like hell. I put my hand out and I said, ‘Jordan, where are you?’ you know? ‘Are you in there?’ I knew it had to be more than just mind control and manipulation.”

Why does Kim say she believes Jordan was drugged by members of the Church of Wells? And how did the young preacher’s family convince him to come home? Tune in for part one of this two-part Dr. Phil exclusive airing Friday.
