PBI offers third party support for alleged victims of abuse

    President of Prairie Bible Institute (PBI) Mark Maxwell says the school is in contact with a third party  to act as a venue for these who may have allegations of abuse.
    Earlier this year allegations of abuse at PBI arose. President  Maxwell gave an update to  constituents  on December 16.
    “When allegations of abuse surfaced earlier this fall, we made every effort to respond appropriately and keep our friends reasonably informed. This has included pledging our full cooperation with the RCMP and making ourselves directly available to any who wish to share their experiences with us, no matter how difficult. We sincerely want those who may have been injured to feel loved and welcomed, but most importantly, to find the reconciliation, healing and justice appropriate to each situation,” states his letter.
    So far according to a Calgary Herald report, three allegations have been brought forward to the RCMP, these include the allegations of Linda Fossen, who came forward with her story of abuse by the hand of her father, while he was involved at the institution.
    The letter says they are offering three ways for those who wish to come forward. It says alumni of the school is offering support to alleged victims. The letter also reaffirms its cooperation with the RCMP and is supportive of those who wish to go forward to the police.
    PBI has also been in contact with what it considers an independent third party.
    “We have been in contact with Centre Street Church in Calgary, a prominent Canadian church with professional counsellors on staff.  This church is not conflicted by virtue of any relationship with Prairie.  Centre Street offers a safe and secure place for injured people to be heard and given professional advice on steps to move forward, including directing individuals to the appropriate authorities, referring them for additional counselling or bringing them to the appropriate parties at Prairie,” states the letter.
