Everyday the world around us becomes increasingly more sex-saturated. As a pastor or church leader, you want to help men and women who are struggling. Yet only 7% of churches have a plan to deal with the effects of unwanted sexual behavior.
This means the vast majority of pastors and church leaders are unsure of where to start, unclear on how to help, and overwhelmed
by the entire issue.
We know what it’s like to see a problem and not know how to solve it. For the last 25 years, Pure Desire has partnered with churches to train leaders and launch groups so pastors are able to lead with clarity and confidence, knowing families are being restored, and men and women are being healed.
Give your church a clear path toward freedom from unwanted sexual behavior and betrayal trauma.
Here’s how it works:
- Become a member.
- Train your leaders.
- Launch groups.
- Celebrate people’s freedom!
As a member, your leaders will develop confidence in leading Pure Desire groups; where men and women get the weekly opportunity to take back their lives from unwanted sexual behavior and betrayal trauma. You’ll have a plan that actually helps your church, saves marriages, and restores families!

Is pricing only available in blocks of five leaders?
The goal of the Church Membership is to help churches catalyze groups at their church. To help churches accomplish this, we set up the membership in blocks of five to provide on-going training and support (both live and pre-recorded) to both active and up-and-coming group leaders. We recognize this is not the best fit for every church. So, we’re also offering the membership to individuals for an annual cost. More information is available here.
How does it work?
Let’s say your church signs up for membership which provides access to 5 group leaders.
Each of your leaders will have access to Sexual Integrity 101 and the Group Leader Training video courses. Your leaders will use Sexual Integrity 101 video course to start the conversation in your church. Meanwhile, each leader will begin working through the Group Leader Training to get their certificate of completion. Upon completion, they’ll have on-going access to the content to reference as-needed while they’re leading groups.
As your Sexual Integrity 101 groups wrap up, participants will be invited to continue to process their story in a Seven Pillars of Freedom, Unraveled, or Betrayal & Beyond group.
We’ll continue to coach, train, and support your leaders through on-going monthly, live and/or pre-recorded, opportunities with our team..
As men and women complete their group, we’ll celebrate their freedom and healing and help you raise up new leaders from these previous group members.
How do I access the content and benefits?
Content and benefits are 100% online and available through the puredesire.org website. Once you have invited group leaders to your membership, they’ll access the content and benefits through the Member Area in their User Dashboard.
How long is the commitment?
Billing is monthly or annual and there are no contracts. Although, we do ask for at least a one year commitment to allow time for on-boarding and training your leaders, launching groups, and giving those men and women the space to heal.
Does it have to be the same leaders for the full year?
At any point, the church is able to make adjustments to which leaders are given access to the content and benefits. However, since the membership is centered around providing on-going training and support (both live and pre-recorded) to group leaders, it is highly recommended that anyone who is actively leading a group have access for the duration of their group.
Here’s what people are saying:
We all have people who face difficulties from time to time. How in the world are we going to help them stay pure in the midst of this culture with brokenness and pain all around? Well, Pure Desire has been just that for us. When they have stumbled, when they’ve gotten themselves into some difficult situations, we don’t want to discard them. We want to see them completely restored and not allow the enemy to have his way in their lives. So, they (PD) are able to help us see them restored. I encourage you to partner with them as well.
Our partnership with Pure Desire has been a great positive step for us. I especially appreciate that the training and follow up care is flexible and applicable for the wide spectrum of people throughout our fellowship. PD is helping us deal with the root causes of the behaviors that can keep us from living the life of freedom that God intended for each of us.
I joined a Pure Desire group because I knew that I needed to work on purity in my life and that there were things I continued to do that I wasn’t proud of. Having just finished the Pure Desire course, I whole-heartedly recommend it to others. The course doesn’t just focus on sexual purity but on becoming a more healthy Christ-follower and I can say it has really helped me in many areas of my life that I didn’t expect. The group time provides a safe place for you to be completely honest and transparent where there is no judgment or shame, something not easy to find in ministry. And today, I have a group of people who I didn’t know a year ago who are now good friends.
