Today’s conversation is critical when you realize how pervasive and how destructive pornography is within your youth ministry. Teenagers’ brains are being rewired, their understanding of intimacy is being hijacked, and their time is being filled by this powerful addiction. Unfortunately, the shame that porn brings often diminishes the ability to have honest conversations so that teenagers can find hope and healing. Join in today’s episode as Sid and Jeremy interview Brett Ullman on the importance of talking more about pornography as well as some of the practical ways that you can spark this conversation.
Learn more about Brett Ullman on his Youtube channel and website, especially his talk called The Porn Project.
Do you find it difficult to address the issue of pornography in your context as a youth worker? Why? Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem?
That’s why we have created a 7-session curriculum on pornography designed for use by small group leaders.
To help your students understand their own journey, understand the journey of unseen victims of porn, and understand the journey of confession, forgiveness, and wholeness because of the Gospel.
Think of a student in your ministry.
What could be the consequences of her life, if no one ever talks to her about God’s design for sex?
What if no one told him how porn is an evil counterfeit experience?
What could be the consequences 10 years from now if no one shows him a better way?
What difference could it make for her family (now and down the road), if someone took the time to journey with her in a loving and gracious mentoring relationship, helping her experience the freedom she never thought possible?
