Pure Desire Men

Pure Desire Men (PD-M) is a one-day conference designed to help men find hope and freedom. It is a time where men can connect with one another and know that they are not alone in this journey seeking sexual integrity. At a PD-M conference, men will leave with insight that will empower them to work toward changing not only themselves, but the culture around them.
