Welcome to Vigilant Minds! You might be wondering who or what we are?
We are a cult support ministry in Calgary, AB. Our group was founded by ex Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and concerned Christians.
Our group is attended by mostly ex JW and LDS, but we also have had persons from a variety of legalistic “church” backgrounds attend our group.
We meet every week on Thursday evening at 7pm in a private home setting. We hope to help alleviate some of the social loss at our meetings that comes with exiting a cult.
One of the ways we can help people get deprogrammed is through the Bible. Cultists have been programmed to think a certain way, with the Bible being abused to push cult propaganda. Attendees can expect to learn the grace and mercy of Jesus, and who He really is.
Some of the ex JWs and Mormons who attend have been out of the organization for many years, and can offer valuable insight into recovery from shunning, mental distress and more.
We hold bi-monthly potlucks where a variety of people attend, so that is always a great time to find new friends and meet other ex cultists.
We also offer a class called “Defending Our Faith”, which is typically held every year at Centre Street Church. The course deals with how to reach out to Mormons and JW’s.
We also have a variety of speaking engagements at various Christians conferences and churches around Calgary.
If you have left or are thinking of leaving a cult, please feel free to attend our group or get connected through our meetup.com group. We can also arrange a private meeting, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
