The COG's most important man, after Dave Pack of course, is Gerald Flurry. His angry jowl flapping face rages continually against his members and the world around him. Flurry has always held always held his lower echelon members in contempt:
So where does Flurry get off saying no one has the right to teach but him? He also told members that other people are "so much dross floating down the river; they don’t matter." If that was true, then why is he trying to get them into his group? In all actuality God died for the whole world. But Flurry cuts off people from their families, no matter how they cry for help. Elderly mothers or fathers, their own children, no matter who. If they're not in the PCG, forget them! But I read that you are to lay down your life for your brother. [I John 3:16]
The Exit and Support site has several letters from former members that have been detailing upheavals in the Trinidad PCG and of various PCG ministers getting canned. Apparently the Turgeon and Culpepper clans are waging war against those they perceive to be disloyal.

Cal Culpepper has been given Aaron Eagle's duties by GF. This means that Culpepper is going to have to move to be more centrally located in his area. Culpepper is more dictatorial than Aaron, and members are dreading him taking over. They are expecting him to "clean house" on the members once he takes over. --Informer
With his rapidly falling income, disgruntled members, and rebellious ministers, Flurry's cult is on a downward spiral. All is no longer glorious or righteous in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Recent PCG ministers canned/or told to resign have been Aaron Eagle - who "...disfellowshipped members right and left"; Craig Winters, Regional Director Florida and Bryan Weeks, Mail Processing Manager.
Other letter writers talk about the abuse they have been receiving from various COG ministers with one person even detailing how Brian Davis disfellowshipped their 13 year old son. Brian Davis has a long track record of spiritual abuse towards members. One write to E&S says:
February 22, 2013
If we are to go strictly by the PCG teachings, Brian Davis thinks he has "taken my crown." (Revelation 3:11) This is how callous they are to let you think you will be thrown in the "lake of fire" if you do not submit and come crawling back to them. I no longer believe this! After a final disfellowship by Brian Davis, I got back my critical thinking skills and came to the conclusion that PCG is a cult that I was part of. I was mentally, verbally, and spiritually abused. They all live a life of luxury at PCG Headquarters in Edmond, Oklahoma. In the meantime, back at the farm in the real world, all those poor cast out members who believed all that bull are trying to pick up the pieces and get what's left of their lives back together. I want to warn others that any group that leaves Christ and His teachings out of the picture as the PCG does is a big fat lie! --Ex PCG
Another writer to E&S has this to say about the PCG layoffs and hierarchy:
April 23, 2013E&S has a lot of information about the PCG Trinidad upheavals. The regional director there is particularly incensed that things happening there are being made public:
These recent "layoffs" sound like cost-saving measures; i. e., as the membership drops, you don't need all those paid ministers. Just so long as the Flurry, Turgeon, and Hilliker families (related to GRF by blood or marriage) are financially secure and taken care of with luxury homes at HQs, most of the rest of the ministry are just "expendable." Then they sugar-coat this reality by saying that these ex-ministers are "still a member in good standing." Any minister or paid staff not directly in the Flurry "bloodline" should be nervous! --Former PCG member

Samuel Seebran boldly stated on the podium that the husbands in the church are hypocrites and also the wives in the church are hypocrites!!! And that they can solve their own problems instead of getting the ministry involved. Seebran's expression is that of disgust and disdain as matters concerning the Trinidad PCG is being exposed openly for the world to know Via ESN. He is raging mad as he has been exposed as a liar and deceiver as more members begin to question and demand answers about what's really going on in the congregation. Seebran cannot quench the "fires" of problems and insecurity existing in the Trinidad congregation and appears to be distancing himself from brethren's personal Problems (marital) as his faulty and questionable administration is under observation from PCG Headquarters. His failure as a leader to address and handle the situation is escalating as more families are being torn apart--instead of love, peace and unity there is distrust, fear and uncertainty. --Resigned member (Trinidad)
