Retraining Center

From XFamily - Children of God

Retraining Center (or RTC) was a home (or place within a home) were people were sent for "re-training" in the cult's ideology.

Later, these retraining centers became known as the "Victor Programs" (a place where people were sent to "get the Victory" over their perceived problems). They were also supposed to join the "Attack Team" (that is, to attack the "problem" of one's "personality").

Below is an example of a response by someone sent to one of these RTCs after "graduation":

"When I arrived at the "Rehab" or RTC, I didn't realize what bad shape I was in. So after we explained why we thought we were there, then our Shepherds spelled it out more clearly told each of us in front of the others the extent of our spiritual problems. Whew!"— Bert (FSM 121)
