It’s time to address the real problem in your church.
We want to help you solve one of the toughest issues in the church.
And it’s not church attendance or community outreach.
It’s hard to talk about and much easier to be silent about sex.
Pornography addiction and sexually compulsive behavior are becoming bigger and bigger problems in the church every day. 68% of Christian men have struggled with porn and/or sex addiction at some point in their lives. 52% of pastors struggle or have struggled with these addictions too. The right resources can help you address these issues from the pulpit and in the personal settings where the challenge often comes up.
Because porn and other sexual addictions become so deeply rooted in the mind and heart, it can be extremely difficult for people to break free and repair the broken relationships that result. Church leaders often feel helpless and ill-equipped to handle these complex issues in their congregation, which can leave the problem unsolved.
That’s why we’ve put together a program designed exclusively for churches: to equip you to tackle these critical issues within your church community. Do not be intimidated; we are experts in our field, and we’ve provided a way to take care of all the tough stuff for you. We’re experts because we’ve been down that road, knew we needed a change, and created a structure for preserving a healthy, Godly sexuality with our spouses.
The First Step in Tackling Porn in Your Church: Recognizing the Problem.

Addiction to sex & porn is
a progressive disease.
Many pastors have struggled to find resources that help them address the issues of sex and porn in their congregation. Church leaders often do not realize the problems that porn is causing in their congregation, but this topic desperately needs to be addressed from the pulpit. And the good news? There is help. Tools and training exist to empower pastors and ministry leaders to ensure that the buck finally stops here.
Here’s the truth: if your church is made up of people, then your church struggles with all measures of sexual sin. Including porn addiction. Including sex addiction. Full stop.
Ministry leaders must be bold, truthful, and full of God’s grace when they address these topics with their congregation often, honestly, and with the greatest kindness. For we are all sinners, broken and equally in need of grace at the foot of the cross.
Studies have shown that marriages are far more likely to end when one partner is engaged in frequent porn use. “Analyzing the data [from a survey that spanned from 2006-2014], the researchers found that people who started watching porn were more likely to split with their partners during the course of the survey. For men, the chance of divorce went from 5% to 10%. For women, that number jumped from 6% to 18%. They note that when women stop watching porn, their divorce rates drop from 18% back down to 6%. The effect was less apparent in men, however. Most of the men surveyed—between 55% and 70%—watched porn to begin with, and very few stopped once they started.” -Sciencemag.org.
Porn, it seems, is toxic to committed marriage relationships. And yet, it is pervasive. Porn can be accessed, quite literally, anytime, anywhere, completely free of charge. Men (and women) in your church are habitually using pornography.But we’re here to tell you that you can take your life back.
But what can you do? Here’s a start:
- Acknowledge that the problem is real.
- Get help! Don’t fight this battle alone. Training and resources exist to equip you and your ministry staff to help your church storm the gates of hell and take back ground against porn addiction. Learn more here.
- Don’t be discouraged. You are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Go into this battle boldly but prayerfully. Trust that it’s God’s will that your church breaks free!

“George, you convinced me that my behavior was never the “real me,” it was my “false self.”
A coping strategy for deep rooted pain. I learned to stop, to forgive myself, and to love myself. To see myself for who I really am. My family and I are forever grateful. Thank you my friend.”
