Many church leaders who struggle with sexually compulsive behaviors feel trapped. They are stuck in unhealthy patterns they cannot resolve alone, but feel they have no choice. They battle in isolation, secluded by shame and fearful that they may lose their family, employment, career, and possibly God’s calling on their lives. Most church leaders who struggle with unhealthy sexual behaviors feel they cannot seek help. Pure Desire Ministries exists to help the Church address the unspoken reality of sexual addiction within society and the church community.

Through a full library of resource materials, treatment options, partnership opportunities, and experts, Pure Desire is positioned as a provider of Christ-centered recovery options for those ensnared in love or sexual addiction.
