Bill Gothard earned a bachelor's and master's degree at Wheaton College. His also has a fake PhD. His brother Steve.
Here is an account of Bill and Steve's abuse - Biblical Search Reports.
The method of selected young women for work at the headquarters - and grooming them - is described here.
|Josh and Anna Duggar met at a Gothard conference,|
the Duggar family was extremely loyal to Gothard's training.
Josh was sent for "treatment" to a Gothard location in Little Rock.
I was vaguely aware of the Duggar connection to Gothard, and Gothard's scandals, but I am not bewitched by the Evangelicals and their Pietim.
The alarm bell went off when I read how Josh and Anna Duggar met, although they were careful to omit the Gothard name or even the full name of the group.
|Bill Gothard never married,|
but used youth women as unpaid, poorly paid
or paying staff, isolating and grooming them.

Josh: In early 2006, my Dad was campaigning for State Senate. We were a couple weeks from the Primary Election when my family took our annual trip to the ATI Conference. I was busy working with the A/V team, and had very little free time… but during one of the breaks I ended up talking through my lunch break with some new friends!…
[a year later]
Anna: Our family made the trip from Florida to Texas again to attend our annual ATI Conference.
Another Duggar Pal - Abusing His Children's Nanny
Various authors have documented Martin Stephan having the same kind of sex cult and robotic followers as Bill Gothard. Stephan made sure he was accompanied by young woman on late evening strolls through the woods.
Stephan contracted syphilis and gave it to his wife, children, and groupies. That was the real crisis that allowed CFW Walther to realize - with a shock - that his bishop was an adulterer.
