One of the greatest needs of this world is freedom from sexual addiction. It is perhaps more spiritually deadly than all other substances and addictions combined. It is certainly one of the biggest threats to the church today. In this class, you will learn how you can break free, mentor individuals as well as guide whole ministries to break free from all forms of sexual addiction with five foundational principles. These five foundational principles are biblical and backed by clinical research. In this class, Glenn will share over 20 years of experience treating Christians both clinically and pastorally in and out of the church. For if the Son sets you free, you will be freed indeed!
