Andrew Pledger

Cult Survivor | Digital Creator | Activist

Andrew Pledger is a queer survivor raised in a fundamentalist Christian cult (IFB). Throughout his education, from K-12, he was homeschooled with the specific intention of indoctrination. After graduating, he was involved in another cult called Bob Jones University. However, during his senior year, he faced excommunication for speaking up about his experiences of enduring religious trauma caused by toxic fundamentalist teachings. Since leaving he has publicly called out BJU for being an authoritarian cult, which has been featured in the news. As a survivor, digital creator, and activist, Andrew perseveres in raising his voice to inspire and empower fellow survivors. Learn More Here.
