I SURVIVED A CULT, AND I'M USING MY EXPERIENCES TO HELP OTHERS.


My name is Vennie Kocsis. When I was three years old, I was taken into an extremist, end-times cult, ending up in Alaska, Sam Fife’s Move of God.  The childhood abuses other children and I endured are inexcusable.  These abuses included sexual, physical and mental trauma.


Cult leader Sam Fife, is on the far right, standing with his private plane and two of his Father Ministry. 



These are the last two photos taken of my siblings and me before my mother left with us.  

The Abuse I Endured Changed My Life Permanantly 

Some of the conditions I describe in my memoir, CULT CHILD , still exist on these compounds today.  Not a day goes by that I do not think about the children living there and wonder if they are alright.  This is the passion which lives in my heart and cannot be extinguished.   I want to educate the residents in this area, so they are not lured into an environment through which their wallets and minds are drained and their children left vulnerable. 

I Am Still Healing

Now, forty-five years later, I am visually revisiting the past to tell my story in a short documentary. 

I grew up on one of two compounds located in the remote woods.  Below is a recent Google maps photo of the entrance to the last compound where I grew up on in Delta Junction, AK. Living in these abusive and remote environments created a feeling of helplessness in me as a child. 


My Goals: 

I want to share my story for the purpose of education.  I want to share my creative processes to help others who need an outlet for their trauma. 

To give you a feel for my video story telling style, this is the CULT CHILD book trailer I created.




We are asking for support in funding the filming equipment and time needed to record the journey.  We will be self producing this documentary, which will launch between Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.

Thank You!

Your support for our endeavors means everything to me.  To be able to travel back to the place which broke me and share what happened to me and so many other children, will be more than healing.  It will be ground breaking. Thank you for caring, for taking the time to read this story and for understanding my need to use creativity as a tool for education.

"You think they won't believe? Wait until I speak".  Vennie Kocsis

We are working hard to make this seminar happen. Delta Junction, AK is smothered with this cult’s presence; the same cult written about in the book, Cult Child. While they are inter-marrying to keep their legacy going within the cult, we hope to keep more people from joining it and to educate the public about the horrific sexual, physical and mental abuses we children endured growing up in this cult. Thank you to everyone who supports this journey. It is a journey of re-visiting and healing, breaking open and revealing.
