In recent developments regarding sexual abuse allegations against Austin Gardner, the founder of Vision Baptist Missions in Alpharetta, Georgia, new information has come to light that sheds further light on the situation.
In a previous interview released on September 22, 2021, Becky Earnhart made allegations of sexual abuse against Gardner. These allegations were validated by at least 12 submissions on the Survivors of Austin Gardner website, from people who had first-hand knowledge or had seen evidence of the things that Becky had spoken about.
Since then, there has been an internal investigation, and Gardner has stepped away from his public position as the founder of Vision Baptist Missions. However, some missionaries have walked away from the organization, while others remain deeply supportive.
Recently, Dear Vision Baptist released an eye-opening compilation of Marco Polo videos sent amongst the Vision Baptist Mission board. The video features several Vision Baptist Mission board leaders, including the president of VBM, Jeff Bush, the pastor of Vision Baptist Church, Trent Cornwell, the General director of VBM, Travis Snode, and other field directors of VBM.
