MEN'S SECRET WARS . . .
Sexual Purity is often a secret war that isn't talked about much ... and the hidden weapon that destroys so many is often PORN.

Follow-Up Groups . . . .
The Gathering promotes follow-up groups throughout the county entitled 'Faithful & True'. These groups focus on the overall positive affirmation of authentic manhood alongside others who have a made a commitment to address areas that often trap men - purity, passion, productivity, possibility. We use the SEVEN PILLARS TO FREEDOM which is a Biblical based workbook (not DVD) that incorporates group discussions.
The 'Seven Pillars to Freedom', written by Dr. Ted Roberts, is a great in depth program for men who have gone through the Conquer Series and want to keep striving forward in sexual integrity. The course addresses such things as breaking through denial, limiting damage, establishing sobriety, understanding the nature of sexual addiction, surrendering to the process, and developing a spiritual growth plan.
In these FAITHFUL & TRUE groups men are encouraged and equipped through group discussions that take place as they go through the material together in a safe and private setting. As the scripture says, "As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." (Proverbs 27:17; NKJV).
