Vanguard ’24 Report

Last month, people from throughout the USA and Canada converged in Austin, Texas, for Apostolic Moral Purity’s 2nd annual Vanguard Conference. 

The conference kicked off with a powerful opening session, “Set Free to Be Free,” delivered by UPCI General Superintendent David Bernard. This session set the tone for the rest of the event. 

The emphasis of the conference was to help pastors and church leaders be able to understand and assist people in their respective congregations to overcome pornography and sexual addictions. 

We learned about the AMP Recovery Model as well as the Hijacked Brain. We were given tools for recovery and heard how to help betrayed spouses, young adults, and women with sexual addictions. 

From there, we had a class on guarding our families against the snares of the internet and a class for pastors only. The conference wrapped up learning about life after recovery.

If you have someone in your congregation who deals with pornography or other type of sexual brokenness, there is help available. You can access the resources of Apostolic Moral Purity.

Current AMP Resources

Currently, Apostolic Moral Purity has support and recovery groups for men, women, and betrayed wives. Each group is doing a phenomenal job of helping to restore hope. 

We also have expert one-on-one clinical help when needed, which is most of the time. Pornography use is an attempt to meet a legitimate need illegitimately. It will not be overcome alone. 

Pornography and sexual addictions can be overcome most effectively by accessing the proper group setting and receiving clinical assistance. Add participation in the home by the spouse, family, and church. Each of these areas needs accountability incorporated, and each part needs to work in connection with Jesus Christ Himself. 

You can access our Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website. Feel free also to contact me if you need more information.

Forgiveness & Trust

Forgiveness & Trust Is it necessary to trust again after forgiveness has been given? We know that forgiveness of others is necessary so we may maintain forgiveness in our own lives, but does that mean we have to trust the one we have forgiven again?  Several years ago, I asked an older minister this question.…

Safe Sex!

Society is confused with what safe sex really is. Sex is a subject Apostolics tend to think about more than discuss. I teach a class in my marriage seminar entitled “Fun.” It deals explicitly with the topic of sex in marriage. Interestingly enough, it is the most favorite session taught. I get more positive feedback…
