Supporting Tony means supporting Mike Reid and his doctrines

 Tony Miano and GFC state, “God is the one who meets the needs of the Tony’s family and the ministry to which our church has called him. God accomplishes this through the financial and spiritual support of Tony’s Church family and by leading other Christians and Christian churches to prayerfully and financially partner with us.”

Supporting Evidence

 Research by Dr. Anthony R. Silvestro Jr

50-60 hours of research on the topics presented in this podcast, including:

Over 10 hours interviewing Kevin & Jen Jandt, the author of 3 blogs

Over 13 hours interviewing 10 former members & weekly attendees

Many hours listening to each audio (2-3x) posted on the Beaverton YouTube Page

Many hours reading the blogs and anonymous testimonies

 

  • The anonymous testimonies in the 2nd blog article have all been confirmed in my research through intro texts and then lengthy phone calls.  2 of them are willing to come out publicly on a podcast, and several others are praying about whether they want to, knowing that it may re-incite members at GFC to harass them through texts, phone calls or emails.

 

Beaverton Grace Bible Church YouTube Page

Pastor Chuck O’Neal has painstakingly saved and catalogued multiple audios of Pastor Mike Reid which verify many of the topics talked about in the interview of Kevin Jandt.

These can be found at the Beaverton Grace Bible Church YouTube page.

 

A claim has been made that the audios are all edited.  That is patently false.  Some of the audios on the page are cut and pasted for brevity.  Every one of those “cut and pastes” is found in its entirety in the other audios present on the same playlist.
