Healthy Sexuality: Addressing Pornography and Sexual brokenness in Today's Church

April 20, 8:00 AM - 12:30 PM


A hidden cycle traps Christian men and women in a repetitive cycle of porn use and private confession, and the answers most churches offer fail to free the ensnared. It’s not enough to say the local church has a hidden porn problem. Church leaders deserve a primer on how people become trapped, why they often stay stuck alone, and how the church can help people come out of hiding and find lasting healing and freedom.

Troy Snyder

President of C-SASI

As a counselor Troy has treated sex addiction for 20 years and has a deep understanding of this problem. Early in his career, he learned about a framework for helping people who struggle in this area. As God provided this keen understanding, it became clear that He was calling Troy to use the skills learned, along with my passion, to offer encouragement, hope, and healing to people whose lives have been affected by this specific unhealthy lifestyle.
