Master's Commission

As he was about to turn 17, Remy Attig was keen to get away from his parents’ fracturing marriage, and ready for something to give his life purpose. The Master’s Commission program seemed like just the thing to set him up for a life of travel and spreading the word of God. Instead, it ran him ragged, instilled fear, built on his internalised homophobia, and set him up for unhealthy relationships and trust issues. In hindsight, he believes that the Master’s Commission was a cult.   Guest: Remy Attig   Full research sources listed on each episode page at You can support the creation of this independent podcast at   With thanks to Audio-Technica, presenting partner for season 4 of Let's Talk About Sects.   If you have been personally affected by involvement in a cult, or would like to support those who have been, you can find support or donate to Cult Information and Family Support if you’re in Australia (via, and you can find resources outside of Australia with the International Cultic Studies Association (via   Credits: Written and hosted by Sarah Steel Music by Joe Gould Edited by Corey Green of Transducer Audio   Links: Master’s Commission International Network (MCIN) — official website Athletes International Ministry — official website Phoenix Megachurch Hosting Trump Rally Says It Has Special Coronavirus-Killing Air System — by Ray Stern, Phoenix New Times, 22 June 2020 AG Warns Phoenix Megachurch and Air-System Firm About Fraudulent COVID Statements — by Ray Stern, Phoenix New Times, 26 June 2020 Without a Vision, You Perish — Trivita profile of Larry Kerychuck, unknown date Lloyd Zeigler — Jim Bakker Show profile, accessed January 2021 Statement of Fundamental Truths — Assemblies of God Master’s Commission USA — official website My Cult Life — blog by Lisa Kerr, archived January 2014 See for privacy and opt-out information.
