Below is a statement regarding the affiliate status of the Master’s Commission that Barry and I were on staff at in Louisiana. In light of the many stories of abuse the MCIN received, they conducted an investigation and have removed the affiliate status of this program.
I am forever thankful to Pastor Lloyd Zeigler and the MCIN for taking my concerns as well as the concerns of former staff and students seriously. In a world where people overlook this type of behavior in the church, they have taken a stand against it. They have risked friendships and spent hundreds of hours working to see these issues resolved.
Thank you Z for not allowing this abuse to continue under you watch. Your quick action is greatly appreciated!!

RE: MASTER’S COMMISSION 3D AFFILIATE STATUS
To Whom It May Concern: Master’s Commission International Network (“MCIN”) recently received several reports from individuals formerly associated with “Master’s Commission 3D” located in Broussard, Louisiana (“MC3D”). These reports were received in the form of letters, blog posts, and verbal reports. In response to these varied reports, MCIN undertook and completed an investigation concerning MC3D. As part of its investigation, MCIN requested that MC3D provide MCIN’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) a detailed response to the various allegations and other concerns. Having concluded its investigation, MCIN presented the results to the Board. In light of the facts and information presented to the Board, and after careful deliberation, the Board decided to terminate MC3D’s status as a Master’s Commission “Affiliate”. We know this decision may affect students currently enrolled at MC3D, and as such, we informed MC3D that should any of their students desire to relocate to another Master’s Commission Affiliate in good standing, MCIN is available to assist them and answer questions they may have in that regard. MCIN values the commitment and contribution of all students and leadership associated with the Master’s Commission Affiliates. Accordingly, we believe that our actions in this regard were both appropriate and necessary.
Lloyd Zeigler, Chairman
