Darren Briggs, former Michigan 2x2 Worker

Darren Briggs was a former 2x2 worker who came from New York and had lived in the homes of many 2x2 followers with children.

He was obviously "professing" and felt "a call" to become a worker. Workers are forbidden by overseers to marry, and many are not suited for single life. So what can people expect from people who are not gifted with being celibate but feel pressured to be workers?

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1Ti 4:2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 1Ti 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

From what I understand, Darren was staying in a 2x2 supporter's home who had children and was wrestling with his shirt off, with a young boy in a room privately after Darren had closed the door behind them. Already it is not sounding good.

Some bad things happened (as you can imagine may be the intent of a male worker wrestling with his shirt off behind closed doors with a young boy.

Evidently, the parents had a talk with Darren Briggs and asked Jerome Frandle and others involved to send Darren Briggs home back to New York.

Later on, from what I gather, some sister workers were in the field and made a complaint to the police who filed an official complaint and Darren Briggs was convicted, sent to jail etc.

Later, the former Michigan overseer Jerome Frandle and Darren Brigg's companion Bill Denk were arrested and convicted for failing to report the child sexual abuse.

I have requested copies of the public court records and posted them in the hopes of the following:

  1. Workers who are not gifted to be celibate may learn from Darren's experience and leave the cult work
  2. Children who have been molested and sexually assaulted by workers could gather hope from this incident and report child sexual abuse to the authorities
  3. Overseers can see that if they cover up child sexual abuse, then they may be arrested for failure to report child sexual abuse
  4. Involvement in a cult can lead to jail time due to the bad fruits of cult beliefs
