Order the Conquer Series DVD Set and Study Guide, and contact Pure Desire (PD) Ministries regarding hosting a PD University at Step Eight. Pure Desire books events 8-12 months out, so contacting Trevor Winsor now would provide an strategy for what it looks like to host an event that would train your leaders and help create a culture of grace in your church. In lieu of hosting a PD University, you may send a group of leaders to a PD University already scheduled. Visit our list of University events happening across the country.
Watch the Conquer Series DVD Set as a church leadership team (staff and ministry leaders). Consider partnering with Pure Desire to provide pastoral care for your leaders through our PD Leaders program.
Contact your Regional Group Leader (RGL) to become familiar with Pure Desire groups.
Create a leadership team (four to five people) of men and leadership team of women (as available) for the purpose of developing and training them to be your first PD group leaders.
Collaborate with your Pure Desire Men’s and Women’s Regional Group Leaders to receive support as you train your group leaders.
Launch your Pure Desire groups using one or more of the following methods:
Begin advertising your first showing of the six-week Conquer Series for men. Promote the series to fathers, lay leaders, and friends of those who might be struggling with pornography. Use the Conquer Series promo materials to promote your event and to invite men to the showing.
Host or attend a PD University event to train group leaders, inform your church about the neurochemistry and theology of sex addiction, and give parents hope for their children’s future. Work with other churches in your area to bring awareness, hope, and practical application to the battle raging in our churches.
Identify, recruit, and train a small group (four to six) of women to lead the Betrayal and Beyond and Eight Pillars to Freedom groups. Have them walk through the materials listed below as a small group.
Launch the Betrayal & Beyond groups for women who are struggling with betrayal issues relating to sex addiction after the men’s groups have been started.
Launch Eight Pillars to Freedom for women who are struggling with love and/or sex addiction.
Offer Hope for Men groups to men who are struggling with issues relating to their spouse’s love and/or sexual addiction.
Launch Living Free groups for college-aged men.
This ministry process does not look the same in every church. Though we recommend this order of implementation, it does not always come easily. If you are unable to follow this process, please don’t hesitate to contact your RGL to discuss your specific circumstance, challenges, and needs.
If the pastoral staff needs help understanding the ministry or implementation, they may set up a time to confer with our Executive Director. Appointments can be scheduled through our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.489.0230.
