COGIC Abuse Watch blog is an outreach and information project of Report COGIC Abuse.com which is intended to give victims of sexual, ecclesiastical, land-property and financial abuses in Church of God in Christ Inc (COGIC) churches a venue to report, question and dialogue on issues affecting them.
Due to an increasing demand to address and document different forms of abuse, mismanagement and doctrinal error as well as the systematic denial of victims' voices by church leadership, it became necessary for Report COGIC Abuse to offer a real time forum. Our ongoing efforts is to help bring visibility and accountability to the nation's largest black pentecostal denomination.

Two of the pedophile elders were in position at Wilborn Temple COGIC, the other three at St Johns COGIC. That’s what a lengthy and detailed letter made public last month, alleges.
