SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – An Upstate mother spoke with 7 News about the effects of Word of Faith Fellowship Church on her relationship with her daughter.
The Associated Press released a series of articles outlining abuse allegations from former members of the church.
Constance Hardin says her daughter, Cherish Santos, joined Word of Faith Fellowship 6 years ago.
Hardin states that at first she was allowed to visit Santos, but the longer she was in the church, the more she says Santos pushed away.
Hardin says that she has not spoken with Santos in more than a year, and has not been able to meet her latest grandchild.
Hardin hopes that Santos knows that if she wants to leave the church, she has family that cares.
