Pastors Round Table with Pastor Jack West

April 21, 2021 02:00 PM US/Michigan

In this Pastor's Round Table Jack West, Care & Recovery Pastor at Mariners Church Irvine and author of the reGROUP "recovery-discipleship" group curriculum will discuss the nature of porn use beyond the disease model of addiction. Jack will bring 13 years of experience in church group based, trauma-informed recovery ministry aimed. This discussion will explore why approaches to porn addiction recovery in churches that follow a traditional model often enhance the very factors that hold the unwanted behaviors in place. This presentation will consider ways to rethink how porn recovery ministry can leverage the power of the group to shape corrective experiences that help participants break free from porn addiction.
