Episode 10 brings a special guest interview with Damon Seacott, who has chosen to live a life of singleness and celibacy.  This is a great episode for singles to have someone to relate to, and great for married folks to learn how to be in community with singles and why that’s so important for both.  The Church has much to learn on how it over-emphasized marriage and the damage this can do to the mission and community of the Church.

My latest article is up on the Covenant Eyes blog: Pre-Marital Sex: What the Bible Says

  • 64% of self-identified Christian men and 15% of self-identified Christian women view pornography at least once a month (compared to 65% of non-Christian men and 30% of non-Christian women). (Barna, 2014)
  • 1 in 5 youth pastors and 1 in 7 senior pastors use porn on a regular basis and are currently struggling. That’s more than 50,000 U.S. church leaders. (Barna, 2016)
  • Only 7% of pastors report their church has a ministry program for those struggling with porn. (Barna, 2016)

I serve as a Church Consultant on Pornography & Sexual Purity for Covenant Eyes. Contact me if you’re interested in making a game plan together for your church. I also have a free 60-second survey you can send to your congregation to gauge porn usage within your church body.

I’d love to hear from you on what’s already working and help fill in the gaps. Let’s get those first two stats to drop and that last one to rise!

(If you yourself are struggling with pornography, please join one of my 7-week online small groups.)
