Doug and Wendy Duncan are former members of a religious cult, the Trinity Foundation, in Dallas, Texas. After leaving the cult where he was a member for over twenty years, Doug earned his master’s degree in counseling and is now a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. Wendy is a licensed social worker and holds a master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She is also the author of I Can’t Hear God Anymore: Life in a Dallas Cult, the true story of the couple’s involvement in and eventual separation from a cult.
Since renouncing their membership in a cult, Doug and Wendy Duncan began a ministry to help individuals coming out of cultic groups and to teach churches how better to minister to these hurting people. The Duncans are available for author visits, speaking engagements, and training workshops on the topic of cults, spiritual abuse, and recovery. Visits may include their personal testimony, an introduction to cults, training on helping individuals coming out of cultic groups, warning signs of potentially abusive groups, and understanding cult mind control.
Because of their experience of the damage, cultic groups can do to individuals, Doug and Wendy have a passion to help others who have been caught up in spiritually abusive groups and to help Christians understand how to minister to these hurting people. Individual counseling is available, as well as support groups. (See “need help” page for additional information).
