Ordained minister and street-preacher, Jordan Reichenberger, spent five days with the Church in late 2016.

Jordan alleges that he was drugged while he was there and witnessed church elders aggressively preaching to others before friends and family showed up to take him home.

In the video above, he describes the day Jordan’s brother, Ian, and others turned up to the Church’s property to help bring him home.

Tune in to part one of this two-part Dr. Phil exclusive on Friday to learn what Ian says was the family’s “secret weapon” they used to help Jordan to leave the church’s property with them.
