Karen Pressley, a convert from the Church of Scientology to Biblical Christianity and Founder of Wings of Love Ministries (see http://karenpressley.com/?page_id=22) will give her personal testimony: “ESCAPING SCIENTOLOGY: AN INSIDERâ€™S TRUE STORY”.
Prior to her 16-year involvement with the Church of Scientology, Karen worked as a Hollywood fashion designer, as well as a music publisher with her (then) husband Peter Schless. Their work included hit songs like “On the Wings of Love.â€ Their careers took a turn (early 1980â€™s) when they fell prey to the deception of Scientology.
After 16 years in Scientology, Godâ€™s grace removed the veil of deception from Karenâ€™s eyes. After two prior unsuccessful attempts to escape (1990 and 1993), her third attempt in 1998 led to final disentanglement from the group, but resulted in ex-communication from her friends and divorce from her husband of 20 years. Grace also enabled her escape and miraculous freedom from the cultâ€™s entrapmentâ€”including her eventual discovery of the power of prayer and faith in Christ.
Since Karen began her “new lifeâ€ in 1998, she has traveled from coast to coast sharing the amazing story of her experiences within the Church of Scientology (1982-1998), her three escapes (final in 1998), and the challenges of rebuilding a new life after losing everything she had. Hers is a story of courage, hope, and building character through trials and perseverance.
Reunited with her family in Atlanta, she has a new life: new career, resumed her college education, new marriage, and counts her losses as gain through her new found faith in God.
With a passion to communicate and with boldness to share this story, she has been invited to speak around the country. Her story has touched the hearts of thousands at womenâ€™s conferences, church and ministry events, youth groups, colleges and universities.
Pieces of Karenâ€™s personal story as an ex-Scientologist who escaped and and found faith in Jesus Christ have aired on NBC Dateline, CNN (Paula Zahn segment), “Secrets dâ€™Actualiteâ€ on M6 Network in Paris, and local Atlanta shows, as well as local and national radio shows. Sheâ€™s been interviewed by the Los Angeles Times, St. Petersburg Times, Atlantaâ€™s Sunday Paper, and many Christian publications including Baptist Press News, The Christian Index, Missions Mosaic, On Mission Magazine, LifeWayâ€™s Open Windows and more.
Karen plans to release her personal story about her Scientology experiencs in the book, ESCAPING SCIENTOLOGY: AN INSIDERâ€™S TRUE STORY. Until the book is out, abridged versions of her story are available on CD on the products page of her web site: www.KarenPressley.com. They willl also be available on Amazon.com soon!
