Category: Agape Ministries

Many churches and ministries use the name Agape Ministries. This news archive concerns a religious group with properties in and around Adelaide, South Australia, and led by Rocco Leo.

In May 2010 properties belonging to Agape Ministries were raided by Australian police. Police seized an arsenal of weapons, high-powered ammunition and explosives.

Former members reportedly claim that the religious group, referred to in the media as a ‘doomsday cult,’ promised them a haven on a South Pacific island, to protect them from microchips the government was planning to implant in all humans.
