Grant and Jane Clarke and their control over Life and Death Part II


  1. Wow…*gulp*

    It’s hard to know how to respond to your story, other than heartache…and anger.

    Though I wasn’t part of Deerfield, I can hear (in my mind) similar conversations in the group with which I was involved.

    I hope you have been able to grieve the loss and have honored every tear and every emotion. You deserve that, and much more….much more…

  2. Oh my! “Who’s going to pay the bill”?! Well, therein lies the real reason. Don’t upset the gravy train- just keep it rolling. Since when does God discourage children? Since when does God decree some children are more equal than others?! Unless you saw the offspring of Greg and Melissa raise the dead or walk on water, their kids were no more deserving than yours to be born.

    After reading a post like this, it is amazing that Jane and Grant continue at all. Truly a testament to your ability to forgive.

  3. Checklist of Cult Characteristics – Excerpt from Vol. 11, No. 1 February/March 2010 edition of the reFOCUS Forum: An Internet Newsletter for Recovery

    * The group is focused on a living leader to whom members seem to display excessively zealous, unquestioning commitment. — CHECK, WE DIDN’T HAVE THE FACTORS
    * The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members. — CHECK, RECRUITING PROCESS THROUGH STRESS CLASSES, ENERGETIX LYCEUM AND EAV COLLEGES
    * The group is preoccupied with making money. CHECK, MONEY NEEDED FOR GREGG’S AIRPLANE AND MELISSA’S DESIGNER BAGS
    * Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.– CHECK, WE DIDN’T KNOW ALL THE FACTORS
    * Mind-numbing techniques (debilitating work routines) are used to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).– CHECK, WORK PATTERNS ON SATURDAYS AND UNPAID EXTRA HOURS
    * The leadership dictates sometimes in great detail how members should think, act, and feel (for example: members must get permission from leaders to date, change jobs, get married; leaders may prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, how to discipline children, and so forth). — CHECK, ALL OF THAT AND MORE
    * The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and members (for example: the leader is considered the Messiah or an avatar; the group and/or the leader has a special mission to save humanity).CHECK, URANDA IS THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, GRANT IS ONE OF THE SEVEN SPIRITS, CHRISTOPHER GABRIEL HAKE : “what led up to this birth is also very significant in the sense that a couple, in the form of Gregg and Melissa Hake, began over a year ago a very intense process of purification individually and together, a process, in fact, unprecedented within our Body to this point. Because of that process of specific purification, there was the development of a new earth capable of accommodating something of the new heaven, and I would suggest that the birth which has occurred provides a living, operational symbol of a beginning point of the new earth through which a new heaven may manifest” **

    * The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which causes conflict with the wider society.– CHECK, “THE WORLD OUT THERE”
    * The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify means that members would have considered unethical before joining the group (for example: collecting money for bogus charities). — CHECK, YOU CAN’T BE HONEST WITH THE DEVIL

    * Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.– CHECK

    **Service “Heaven Welcomed on Earth”, Grant Clarke, April 24, 2005

  4. not to mention that Christopher was born 8 months after Gregg proposed to Paige. Remember how they were sat at the farthest table away from Grant and Jane? What was Terry trying to say? Or was it Jane? Maybe those at the top who were capable of “containing things” left the 115 or so of us servers out on that tid bit of information.

    I feel for Zach Travers who was told once that his family would disown him if he didn’t change his ways. They have manipulated that poor kid from the day he was born.

    • Actually WOW, that is not true.

      These are the dates:

      05.30.04: Grant Clarke announces the engagement: “Here at Deerfield, our little Chapel is cozily filled, and we have shared a particularly wonderful weekend together in this location, with our meditations centering around a recognition of the engagement of Gregory Hake and Melissa Garafolo to be married. Yesterday we shared a delightful time of relaxed celebration in consideration of the precious essences represented by this union for our whole body, and this morning we bring all of that, in addition to the varied patterns of substance that have been generated and refined in our experience throughout the week, into the Temple of our God.” ~Abide in the Temple -05.30.04

      06.03.04: (4 days later) Melissa and Gregg Hake get married:
      “Included in those precious essences has been a pattern of outworking between two whose lives are very close to the core of what we are doing as a Body, and I am very pleased and delighted to be able to announce on an official basis that Gregory and Melissa Hake were married in a private ceremony three days ago. This wedding was surrounded by none of the usual trappings that tend to accompany the human habits of marrying and giving in marriage, and I think there has been a sensing, on the part of those who are close enough to perceive, that here indeed is the representation of a powerful new beginning in relation to the Ministry of the Spirit of Truth”. ~Essences of Personal and Collective Worship- 06.06.04

      Christopher Hake was not born out of wedlock. Claudia used to tell that Gregg speaks French to Melissa when they have sex, maybe Christopher was conceived in French…Our Lord and King may be bilingual

      • Christopher Hake was born 4.21.05

      • good to know it was just a rumor….kinda.

  5. Claudia knows what language Gregg speaks when he has sex with Melissa, her daughter?!! What mother talks about this?!! Is she in the room, or does she wait for the DVD? These people are SICK.

  6. My reaction while sitting in the Chapel as Grant told us of the changes in Gregg Hakes relationship, how he was ending his long term relationship with his then Fiance Paige and entering into a relationship with Melissa and to be married to her was this,,,,What The F… It’s Over !!!!

    My initial reaction was the Ministry is over,,,there was no way in my eyes that the Lord I was following would have the up and coming leader(as was obvious to me) of the Body of Christ on Earth(MST)Gregg Hake marry such a pathetic example of a woman supposedly centered in God.

    In my dealings with the children of Claudia and Chuck Reddick i.e. Melissa ? and Zach Travers I had never seen nor ever understood how they were a part of the Ministry other than by blood ties to Jane Clark….I had the unfortunate experience of having to deal first hand with Melissa on several occasions as I was the focus of all maintenance for all of the homes and businesses and oversaw what was called the Men’s Slave Pattern and she was in accounting where I had to get checks for supplies and such and more often than not it was a very difficult experience with her always throwing out the I’m Jane’s niece card to excuse her bullishness. I used to tell myself not to focus on what was wrong with the Ministry (Worster,Reddick inappropriate behavior,the fact that the elite always had more than anyone else, Worsters, Reddicks, Clarks, Hake, got to keep there money and ownership of businesses while everyone else had to give up their belongings to support their lifestyles) the Lord sent me here to learn what was right in this situation or perhaps to help dismantle it as it has turned out, so I did as my intuition led me, and I began to listen very closely to my intuition over the next few months.

    The signs of the unraveling appeared quickly over the next year 2005. The separation of Cult leaders and families to Gainesville, the dissolution of my relationship with Kate Travers by Jane and Grant, whom both Grant and Jane blessed one year previously and acknowledged to the both of us was a marriage by God as a gift of good works by the both of us, I was told not to try to see where they moved her when they bought her a house in Gainesville and moved her from Dahlonega to be with Darrin who had been with Melissa but was needed in the business plan as he ran Energetix Warehouse and needed to be made happy since his woman was given to Gregg Hake, (I will never understand that one),,,so he was given Kate who had told me before when we were together that she could never understand how her sister could be with Darrin, but through brainwashing and monetary reward was finally broken and gave in to their plan , then came banishment of all of my privileges,LOL
    1) my seat in the front row services
    2) my position as Focus of the Men’s Slave Pattern
    3) my position to focus all of the Maintenance and Landscaping of all homes and businesses. 30m homes and 5 businesses and the MST Deerfield Estate.

    They told us Grant, Jane,Gregg that our responsibilities were privileges, made us disregard the low pay and no overtime paid as my privileges kept me working usually 12 to 14 hrs a day plus weekends and holidays…

    The conclusion to my service with the Ministry of the Spirit of Truth came at the end of 2005 when Grant revealed to me the plan to disassemble the Ministry or as he said it “the little cult” and to focus only on the businesses…..I told him I was not interested in a job that my interest there was in the mission of restoring the consciousness of man as was agreed upon when we met each other and if this was his mission now I would have to leave. At that moment tears of fear entered his eyes for he realized the secret he had just told me could jeopardize their plan…they moved me out quickly and began to spin their story of my departure turning all against me and I believe intercepted some of my emails sent to the Unit to explain my departure and what I foresaw in the future.

    Synopsis…we are the lucky ones we do not have to live in the environment of those sick pathetic morons……they have only each other now….

    Gregg has to live and have sex with Melissa..that is his hell, would be mine…just sayin Gregg, oh and I would speak french too, or wear a costume or just play dead if I had to be in the same room with her !!! LOL

    Grant has Jane, LOL His Hell

    Chuck has Claudia, There Hell

    Terryl has Erich and the rest of the con artist, Her Hell

    Ricardo has Susan, His Hell

    Kate has her family and a man she said she would never be with Her Hell

    Thank you God for not having me sit at that Thanksgiving Table with that group of misfits for one more year…good riddance to bad rubbish !!!

    The greatest gift in the demise of this cult is that we good peoples no longer are in or under the evil influence of these demons who masqueraded as Disciples of God.

    Godspeed in the recovery and reconnection to that which is most dear to us all. our individual identities and governance by that which is responsible for all that is good……Love ~~~~~Blessings to you all, and my extended Love~~~~~

    • WOW!!! I worked at Jurlique’s Atlanta headquarters for 4 years in the 90’s (one of the first Outsiders there) and I’ve often wondered what happened to everyone when they “headed to the mountains”.

      We “Outsiders” joked that it was strange working for a cult, but I had no idea the reality of our words, or the extent to which they were true.

      I have so many questions about the well-being and whereabouts of my co-workers at Jurlique, but it’s not as easy as popping on Facebook and catching up with them becaus I’m assuming that’s not allowed.

      Is Elizabeth still there? Did Damon come back from Europe? Did Pandora leave? What about Paige and her sister? Are Susan’s kids still there? I think of them and how their father was banished from their lives everytime I drive by the “compound” in Brookhaven.

      I cannot believe Darrin and Kate are together. She was such a kind, compassionate person and I worked with Darrin for many years. What a terrible match.

      Could someone please e-mail me at and let me know where everyone is, and who of the people I may know have “gotten out”?

      • They are all doing well. All of them are victims of the fraud. The only ones remaining at the cult are Darren and Kate and Erich and Claudia. Darren by the way was allegedly dating Melissa (Claudia’s daughter) until the day she was engaged with Gregg Hake. So then they put Darren and Kate together.

      • So glad to hear that the family is mostly what’s left up there. The people that I worked with in Atlanta (many of whom I named and many more) were such kind, sweet, caring and loving people, I would hate to think of them still entangled in what is going on up in Dahlonega. It’s really good to hear that they “got out”. Thank you, Shekinah for letting me know.

      • Unfortunately ExEmployee, although the people you met are no longer there, they did recruit some fine, beautiful people. Cults take advantage of smart, intelligent, honest people, as long as they can provide a “hedge” or can make money for them. There still around 10 amazing men and women who could do ANYTHING if they are asked to, anything for them.
        You can see their names on Gregg’s blog, those who leave comments there, they are all his cult followers.

      • Yes, ShekinahP, I can imagine that the people still left are wonderful people. It seems that is MST’s victim of choice. Those with kind hearts who are searching for a way to help make the world a better place. Shame on MST for taking advantage of them.

  7. Rick,
    Thank you for sharing your inner knowledge with all of us. You and others on this blog had a front row seat and the paragraph about Grant disclosing the end of “the little cult” is very revealing and important information for any who might feel Grant was somehow not involved in the unpleasant decision making. I am sure he was scared when he realized you were not going to choose the money and stay. He had let the cat out of the bag for sure.
    When I was around, the 3 leading players were Grant, Rob Cass and Jane and in that order it seemed. Why is there little mention of Rob Cass? I doubt he is free and clear of this ‘take the money and run” plan. Do you have any information to share on his departure? Does anyone?

    • The order is like this: Jane, Gregg, Grant, Erich…Rob was a recruiter for MST and Energetix founder and main figure. Jane hated Rob and did everything to remove him from the pisture. Jane is the mastermind behind all these, the others are puppets and Greeg’s ambition corrupted him to the bone, Jane saw his ambition and gave him the control but he need it to marry her niece Melisa, so all stays in the family. Now Jane control the Hake kids too.

  8. good info .. I am very interested with your article …
