About this page



The New England Institute of Religious Research (NEIRR) provides research on religious cults, sects, and destructive groups. This Christian ministry also provides exit counseling, and operates Meadow Haven, a residential retreat that helps "people through the radical and many times traumatic life- changes that can accompany the departure of a high-control group."

NEIRR is one of the ministries and organizations recommended by Apologetics Index as an ex-cult counseling resource.

The New England Institute of Religious Research was founded in 1991 as a mission outreach to provide churches, secular organizations and concerned individuals with up-to-date research on cultic structures. The Institute also provides training for people who work with those caught up by such destructive groups. We personally meet with the members of various groups to discuss Behavioral/Biblical/Theological issues with them. Another important dimension of Institute ministry is to provide an emotionally and spiritually healing environment for ex-members. We offer information, resources, support groups and counseling to those who have a loved one involved in any type of spiritually abusive group.

The staff currently consists of four full-time members holding advanced degrees in their field. Rev. Robert T. Pardon, (M.Div., Th.M.) is the Executive Director, a position that he has held since its inception in 1991. Rev. Pardon is recognized as an expert in the United States on a number of religious groups, including various communa groups, and the B'ahai faith. He has been a frequent speaker at various conferences across the country. Judith K. (Barba) Pardon (B.A., M.Ed) came on full-time staff with the Institute in 1992 and serves as the Associate Director. Mrs. Pardon is recognized as an effective and compassionate exit counselor, and is likewise well known for her thorough knowledge of aberrant religious groups.

David and Ellen Ronka recently joined the Institute staff serving as resident advisors for the Meadow Haven project.
