Members of the XXXChurch a Christian-fai

XXXChurch is an organization which provides resources for awareness, prevention, and recovery for porn addiction and other sexually compulsive behaviors.

The dialogue on porn and sex addicts has come to the forefront lately with several star athletes and celebrities being found at the center of related controversies. However, there is a website that is trying to help people overcome porn addiction, headed by an unlikely group: a church. XXXChurch is an organization with a unique message and approach to helping those who struggle with pornography in their everyday lives.

A Powerful Opportunity

XXXChurch was founded in 2002 by Pastor Craig Gross, in a time when the internet was still in its early stages. Even though the internet did not have the capabilities that it has today, Gross found that there were an incredible number of sites that were dedicated to pornography. To him, this hinted at a problem with the way that believers and non-believers treated themselves and their personal relationships.

After hearing about the Adult Video News (AVN) Awards, Gross decided that it was time to take a risk and reach out to a community in need. He rented a booth at the convention and then spoke to some of the people who attended. This gave him the publicity that he needed to launch the site that has grown and remains available to this day.

Reaching Out

The goal of XXXChurch is to reach out to various types of people who are having trouble dealing with the effects of pornography. One of their main focuses is helping people to overcome pornography addiction. Their site is linked to a sexual addiction screening assessment that is meant to help people understand if they meet the guidelines for porn addiction. More importantly, XXXChurch is filled with information that relates to how you can overcome this addiction and move closer to God while doing so.

The organization has more information for a variety of other circumstances a person can find themselves in. For example, they are also available to helping parents who find that their children are looking at pornography, including how to broach the subject and talk about it. The XXXChurch approaches pornography treatment by sharing computer programs to help block pornography and assigning accountability partners who are family members or friends who get reports about internet usage.

With a variety of resources that are dedicated to helping people, XXXChurch is an organization that is taking a realistic approach to what they view as a social problem. Even though their methods have some people decrying the use of shame, their concept of a religious and moral safe haven has made them an incredibly popular website for a topic that is difficult to discuss.
