After two and a half years, former Gloriavale man John Ready has been reunited with his family.
Ready was born in Gloriavale, an extreme Christian community on the West Coast founded by Neville Cooper, also known as Hopeful Christian, in 1969. He first began to question Gloriavale’s teachings when his eldest daughter was kicked out of the community for being a “normal teenager” and questioning what the leaders were saying.
