Pastor Ed (if that who he really is-and I doubt it) like all the other pastors at NLA had the chance to stand up to an evil man who was misguiding the spritual life of thousands, and instead decided to take a pay check instead.
That's just bad, bad, bad, no matter how you look at it.
my husband was a pastor at new life ministries. He was a stand up guy with many to vouch for him. Have you ever committed any evil? Be honest. Have you never been forgiven of any wrong you have done? It is very easy to tell from your critical attitude in this post that you have committed evil. God is able to forgive you and love you and bless you.

In the 90's, Pastor Wells made me sign over paychecks I earned working at the school to pay for my tuition directly to him. Flash forward a few years to graduation & all I got was an empty diploma case and a bill for years of tuition because he stole every penny I ever gave him for tuition and fixed the books long enough to stop anyone from asking for tuition until I graduated. I went the entire time thinking I was working off my tuition. Meanwhile, he lived in a nice house in Niskayuna & drove fancy cars while the students showed up to huge orange signs on the doors from NiMo stating that the school owed over $10,000 in utility payments. He left around this time amidst allegations of sexually abusing students.
I am sorry for what you have endured. But in all truthfulness, what you posted about the past needs to be checked for accuracy and the accurate facts of how some things came about. I will say david wells did make several mistakes, but don't we all? I know , his seems greater and I do understand that, but ALL unrighteousness is SIN.

I do believe the Bible teaches to judge them by their fruits and he wasn't speaking of the world but the church, what was done there, apparently hurt spiritually a great deal of people and his family...negativity...I went there shortly and left, what I saw was such as Benni Hinn, and some others are those who take God's word and twist it into doctrine of devils...it was evil what was taken place there and to tell those who were hurt to just move on, is cold you should lift those up that have been deeply wounded in prayer and ask for forgiveness for being a part of it.
before I attended new life ministries I was full of the glory of God, the truth of Hoc and the love of God. When I missioned from there 12 years ago, I was still full of the love, truth, and glory of God. During my stay there as a pastor's wife no evil was present where I stood, if it was, I would spiritually bind, rebuke, and cast it out. I am better today than I was before new life ministries. As for you, it is better to forgive than to be so bitter. Jesus died and resurrected that you might have life and that more abundantly.

Go, Arlene Rochford! Maybe there was one good man. I only remember your husband from the yearbook pictures when I said "who the hell is this black guy? I don't remember any black pastors", but I am sure he was a great man and I would have been a better person for knowing him.

When You are in a position of Pastor and Leading the flock and you hoodwink them for personal gain Then SHAME ON YOU!!!! If you can't trust a professed "Man Of God" who can you trust? many became disillusioned and hurt so as not to trust. When You are in Ministry - You are highly accountable you can't just state a couple of words and cover it all up like that. Also many "christians" are so proud of themselves and have the habit of telling others what to do and ordering them around because after all they are soooo spiritual…blah blah.

Wow lots of bitter people. One thing to learn from it all is to only trust in ones self and your own relationship with God. Keep your own money in your own pocket and your families. New Life was just a little church on Unio Street before David Wells.

Rev. Brian Ruud originally from Saskatoon, Sask. not British Columbia now has meetings in Katy, Texas, Victoria, British Columbia and Saskatoon, Sask. Also was it true he married a 16 year old girl when he was 60??? Just asking and saying, that's what I heard!

I never lied to thousands of people. I never took the paychecks of those who worked for me. I never sexual molested a child-all things David Wells has done and WE have witnessed.
I have spent a lifetime in service and volunteering to make up for the evil that men like YOUR HUSBAND and the blind, hypocritical, semi-literate women they marry who will join them in the hell the preached about. You are living a lie, and leading innocents to damnation.
Does that answer you question?

If your husband was a pastor at New Life then he has GOD to answer to for enabling Pastor Wells egomaniacal power trip. Your Husband has GOD to answer to for not standing up for what's right...and God will be very interested in how you turned your back in the children that pastor wives are supposed to protect.

Jesus was crucified by religious hypocrites like you and your husband and New Life Ministries.

Pastor Jim Hammerle? I saw a post on his facebook from one of his own daughters, looked like she was asking him to help her with medical payments? And a whole lot about how he'd abused and neglected his family, pretty shocking stuff coming from an 18 year old... Makes me really wonder these days, if the pastor's family ain't happy...there's something wrong.

Hi there, no I don't think that is him I think Pastor Jim is older, I sure wish I could find him I had alot of faith in him I have a feeling he's in some other state maybe Florida.
Vera,
Vera Honey, You don't want to know the facts about Jim Hammerle. Suffice to say that "pastor" Jim' has gravitated to a similar ministry where he" serves" in a similar capacity, capice? As for his newer family, they left for parts unknown to be as far away from the apostate church as possible. Rumour has it they moved to Montreal. Jim has a teenaged daughter who from what I gather on her facebook is just about as angry with her dad as the rest of these folks here. Only thing is, she sounds like a real Christian who trusts in Jesus, not man. I think her facebook name is Zahrah leone or something kinda exotic like that .I only found this out out from someone she knows.. I hate facebook and don't go there much.. You are welcome to check this out for yourself...'
