Isaiah 61:1-3


MEN: Pure Desire is for any man who’s ever struggled. Every man, at some point will be tempted to sin sexually. The difference between prevailing and failing comes down to having a battle plan in place. The seven pillars of freedom workbook is a comprehensive curriculum on purity, training men to fight and win against sexual sin. The intensive discipleship course will take you out of your comfort zone, so expect to be challenged. Contact us for more info.
