Porn Addiction and Men's Ministry

The global ministry of Man in the Mirror has served the church over the last 25 years with the vision of “every church discipling every man.” But what happens when so many men are entrenched in pornography? How can the church reach out to men like this?

On today’s program, David Delk, president and co-CEO of Man in the Mirror, talks with us about this enormous problem. David is the author of No Man Left Behind and several other books on the discipleship of men. David talks with us about how the church can create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit inspires men to engage in life-on-life discipleship, even in the midst of the most pressing temptations.

      Great podcast! Love what Man in the Mirror is striving to do–creating a safe place for men to be honest about their struggle(s) with sin; that needs to happen in every church in our nation. Women also need that safe place…James 5:16 isn’t only for men.

        Glad you liked it, Greg. Yes, I agree. I think there are some ministries, like Dirty Girls Ministries and Beggar’s Daughter, who do some work equipping churches to help women, but it would be nice to see more on a nationwide front.
