Ministry partners addressing “Marriage”:


Awaken is a Gospel-centered ministry dedicated to connecting with people whose lives have been devastated by sexual brokenness. We walk with individuals and couples whose lives and marriages have been affected by pornography & sexual addiction. We assist the local church through helping leaders better understand sexual addiction and to create a safe culture in which people can be honest about their struggles. We also help connect ministry leaders with qualified therapists so that - by working together - we can offer the comprehensive help people need to find freedom and healing.

Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation

CCEF works to restore counseling to the church. We believe that the body of Christ is God’s primary context for change, the community God uses to transform his people. CCEF’s mission is to equip the church to be this kind of transforming community. We see ourselves as an extension of the local church, and we want to serve and promote its ministry. The good news of the gospel is meant to be preached, taught, and counseled with relevance to individual people. Equipping Christians to live, love, and counsel is our goal.

Radical is a parachurch ministry that serves alongside the local church, providing multi-lingual biblical resources birthed in the context of a local church that we hope will support disciple-making in other local churches around the world. Radical serves these churches by providing resources in multiple languages, organizing events on multiple levels, and facilitating opportunities through multiple avenues that all aim to encourage followers of Christ in the global purpose God has designed for us as His people. 


Route1520 is a Christ-centered recovery ministry that seeks to come alongside the local church as a trusted resource in ministering to individuals or couples impacted by pornography and sex addiction. Our purpose is to help create a culture of authenticity and transparency in which people are free to connect at weakness, take off their masks in safe community, and experience the healing power of the gospel.  The gospel of Jesus Christ brings freedom from the bondage of sexual sin and addiction, and healing from the pain of infidelity.
