Resilient Men

Men's Core Groups

The group decides what days and times work best for them

For info contact Ben Steele

A Core Group is a smaller group - 3-4 guys who meet regularly.  The meeting time and location is flexible to the group - some of our groups meet for breakfast, coffee, or going on hikes.  This format is designed for a more dedicated opportunity for relationship building and conversation.

Recovery Group

French Hall

Pure Desire is a group to support men in their recovery by providing a safe, confidential place to process their life story. We believe that healing happens best when we are with a community of people who are on the journey with us. Sexual addiction isolates and separates us from one another. Pure Desire believes men can find hope and healing as they learn to tell their whole story and recognize the impact it has had on their behavior.
