Ask yourself this question: When was the last time you heard a message on repentance? I don't mean a call to accept Jesus, but a real, solid call to repentance for the believer and unbeliever alike. Perhaps we need to take a long, hard look at this question and this dangerous and transformational truth. (From The Archives)

This isn't like most Christian conferences. We aren't going to be asking anyone to confess or open up about their struggles. We're going to reserve those for smaller settings like men's or women's retreats or gatherings. Since this is a conference for both men and women, we are not going to do more than present information and the opportunity for a prayer of salvation. If someone wants private prayer, we will make accommodations in a separate room.
So, who should come? Everyone. It really is that simple.
- If you are an addict, come and discover that you are not alone and there is hope.
- If you love an addict, come and find support and tools to help.
- If you are struggle, find hope and peace.
- If you are in ministry, come and learn the truth about the depth and breadth of the problem and how you can help.
- If you're a parent, find out what your kids are facing today and where it's going.
- If you are curious, come.
This is for everyone. By coming, nothing is being admitted. If you struggle or know you are addicted, no one else will know. You will be surrounded by people who are addicted like you, those who've never used porn in their lives, and everyone in between. There is no shame in attending no matter who you are. No matter what, you can be part of the solution.
The truth is that we can no longer afford to be silent on the problem. For Jesus' Outsider Ministries, this is only a start, the first of many as we travel bringing a message of truth and hope.
Please, join us for this important conference. Pornography is destroying the Body of Christ from within and if we don't face it, the harm it does to our brothers and sisters could be irreparable. For more information, visit the special section of our site.
If you can't attend or still unsure, please contact me. We are willing to come and talk to any group with this same message.

"So much death. What can be done in the face of such reckless face?" In the light of the terrorist attack on Pulse in Orlando, how can the followers of Christ respond? What can we do when people who believe we hate them are attacked with true evil intent?
