Earlier this week, Andy and Patty Grove of Fayetteville, Arkansas joined HLN’s Dr. Drew to explain how they have been trying to make contact with their 26-year-old daughter Catherine who abruptly moved to Wells, Texas to be a part of the Church of Wells two months ago.
The church’s elders, who are in their 20s, say Grove is free to leave if she wishes, but her parents think there is more to the story.
This week, KETK talked to 23-year-old Patrick Jones, a former member of the Church of Arlington, presently known as the Church of Wells.
He told the station that he abandoned everything, including his school, his job and his family. But over time, he began having second thoughts after feeling like he was being held "spiritually captive."
In the clip above, Dr. Drew and his special guests discuss why the church is being perceived as so controversial.
