College Clubs/Organizations with Ties to the Lord’s Recovery

Back to Resources

This is a list of college organizations with ties to the Lord’s Recovery/Local Church/Witness Lee cult movement. Most of the movement’s college organizations are called “Christians on Campus,” but there are other seemingly harmless names that are used.

How to Know Christians on Campus Clubs Are Recovery Clubs

About Christians on Campus and Other Lord’s Recovery Clubs

This list is in progress…

This list is incomplete, but we’re working on it. Stay tuned!

As a college student who met the saints on a college campus my freshman year, everyone that I came into contact with was completely open and honest about who they were. There was no “tactic” used to get me through the door. I’m graduating college in December and there has not been any coercion through my college years. Nor has there been any requirement for people in the club to meet with the Lord’s Recovery. About half of my friends in the club know about the Lords Recovery, but go to different churches. My club experience has been people who… Read more »

Thanks for sharing, Grace! I’m about to disagree with you, but no ill-will intended, just my thoughts 🙂 I can relate to you on all of this! Even down to graduating, I really loved my college club! But the entire goal of the college club is to get new recruits into the Recovery. I’m questioning no one’s salvation, but the Recovery clubs are specifically designed to recruit for the Recovery church. That’s their entire purpose. That’s exactly what the College Reunion conferences were for, for all clubs to learn on how to keep from weirding people out with the problems… Read more »

Excessive smilies are so you know I’m literally not offended in any way and trying to be light-hearted, but I understand if some of this stuff offends you. Please know that I have completely believed and bought into the Recovery at one point, so it’s not lost upon me that this website would be offensive to a current member.

You must be the exception. Did you know it’s not run by students, but by employees of the local church? This is deceitful to students as well as the college. I wonder why they don’t call themselves the local church college club? If what you’re saying is true, you’d think they would. Let’s be honest, the blind followers aren’t making the rules. The deceit comes from the top down.

Please add “Christian Students at Sac State”, California State University- Sacramento. I was apart of this “club” and was in the “church life” for two years of my life. I am thankful for those who saved me from this “Recovery”

Can I ask what was wrong with them? Like I can’t find anything except Christian Science Magazine and they put on the cover “We were wrong” about them.

Jacob Howard (Site Owner)

Hi there, Jay!

The “We Were Wrong” magazine by Hank H. and CRI misses out entirely, misleading people to consider the Recovery as anything other than a cult of Christianity. That’s the purpose of this website.

Were you able to check out “The Thread” on this website? I could definitely see the usefulness in maybe updating that to be more concise (and add some items that are more important), but I wrote that to help address what the “We Were Wrong” missed. Thoughts?

Jacob, thank you very much for your site. I met these Christians lately and have become close to some of them, one in particular. She is very kind hearted and pure and devoted as a minister to the students in the college club. Would you please share some tips or advice for how to save these people and speak truth in love? I am currently outnumbered but am praying for the Spirit of truth to guide me as I love the time we spend together in fellowship and want her to know the truth. I feel that God has really… Read more »

Lila, I’m so glad that you ran into this site. I know your story all too well. I met plenty of kindhearted and wonderful people in the Recovery, and I hope to one day be in close contact with them all again. When it comes to speaking truth in love, it can feel overwhelming at times. It’s very cumbersome to deconstruct a belief system that’s rooted in lies yet baited and sprinkled with truth. I’ve made plenty of mistakes in attempting to hold to truth in love. I’ve learned a lot along the way, but what matters isn’t you or… Read more »

The University of Georgia has one called “Christian Students at UGA”. I was involved for two years and thankfully left this cult.

Hi there, Graham! I’m so glad to hear you left. I’ll verify they’re a Recovery club and if so, get them added to the list. Thank you!

Boston has a bunch (including harvard, mit etc) of LSM clubs that are highly active in recruiting new ones. http://web.mit.edu/christians/
The clubs are deceptive by purposefully being vague on their websites and not disclosing their affiliation to LSM. LSM has a training center in Boston and pays an army of full-time workers to recruit on these campuses.

What is LSM and why is it bad?

Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. This group is definitely leading students who get involved with Christians@Tech to The Local Church and encouraging them to attend FTTA after graduation. Our daughter has been indoctrinated and instead of getting a teaching job is headed to FTTA later this summer for the training program. They all call it a Bible school but it is not! We have done everything we can to derail this but these sponsors of the college group have successfully changed our daughter and it is heartbreaking. At this point it’s in the Lord’s hands and we are praying that… Read more »

Texas tech university in lubbock has one. Their org is called “Christians at Tech”

Thank you for your comment to support my earlier comment naming Christians@Tech as part of a gateway to The Lord’s Recovery. They stay under the radar at Texas Tech, posing as a Christian club for Bible study and fellowship. But they have indoctrinated our daughter, groomed her and she’s walked away from our family. I’ve never been this sad and heartbroken, ever.

There was one at Saddleback college, maybe 2 years ago. I’m not sure if they’re still there. I went to 2 of their meetings, they honestly had a weird vibe.

Fullerton College and Cal State Fullerton both have Christian Students club run by the local churches. I know because I was in it.

Thank you, Peter! There’s quite a few clubs in these comments I need to get added to the list. Appreciate it!

I saw someone here in the comments asked for Christian Students at Sac State to be added to the list a year ago. I want to ask you to add it as well. At the moment, I’m still in the club, but that’s only because I discovered the truth of the church behind this club a couple days ago. I’ve been in the club for about 2 years and noticed they do some weird stuff and mentioned Witness Lee every now and then, but never thought anything of it until the LORD put it on my heart in the morning… Read more »
