OUR STORY

In 2007, our founder shared his twenty-two year story of sexual addiction to offer hope. In 2010 we started providing Biblically based behavioral, emotional and spiritual pastoral counseling in small groups for men. A story of hope, has grown to a ministry helping men, teens, parents, families and churches find hope and restoration through the impact of a changed life.

BRETT’S STORY

WHAT WE DO

Generation Impact

We work with youth leaders to equip teens in the battle of sexuality

Helping Churches

 We partner with churches to reduce the weight of sexual addiction for the staff.

Redefining Technology

We take the despair of the internet and use it for hope in small groups.

Equipping Families

Through panel discussions, training and consultations, we help parents offer freedom to their children.

Building Community

We use our small groups to help build accountability and reengage men into the role of leaders. 

Finding Identity

We reevaluate identities and celebrate hope found in an identity in Christ.

“CL takes accountability to another level because the leadership has been down those dark roads and has experienced redemption themselves. So it’s more than accountability; it’s directed ministry that uses the power of the group dynamic, together with understanding leadership, to produce something amazing.”
