Residential Program

5 Reasons You Will Find Freedom

Why is our Residential Program so effective in helping men break free from sexual addiction? Here are five of the top reasons.

Transforming Lives

Pure Life Ministries has been a pioneer in dealing with sexual addiction for over 35 years. Thousands of men have gone through our Residential Program and are now enjoying the blessings of a victorious Christian life. Rather than offering quick-and-easy answers which produce no real change, our entire curriculum is founded on the Word of God, which provides the only true solutions to man’s problems.

Distance and Duration

Simply making the move to rural Kentucky will prove to be a major help. The Residential Program acts as a buffer to the world, filtering out ungodly influences and sources of temptation. Harmful relationships are ended, and the area of so many past defeats is left far behind. Spending nine months on our peaceful 45-acre campus provides men a tremendous opportunity to begin a new life with God.

Victorious Counselors

Our low student-to-counselor ratio allows our staff to invest personally and consistently with each student. Our counselors have not only been trained and certified in biblical counseling, but they have all graduated from the Residential Program themselves. They speak from their own hard-fought battles to overcome sexual addiction and share the biblical answers that propelled them into a victorious life.

Structure and Godly Environment

A central component of our program is its structured pathway into disciplined living. This is a vitally important element for men who have a history of lacking self-control in their lives. Ultimately, however, the most influential factor in the transformation of a sexual addict’s heart and life is an encounter with the Living God. The Lord’s presence permeates the campus in a very special way, and He has freedom in His hand for any who wish to appropriate it.

It’s no wonder that so many men are forever changed after spending nine months living at Pure Life Ministries.

What Do I Need to Know?

There’s a lot of questions that come up when thinking of coming to Kentucky for 9 months. But we’re here to help you.

What does the weekly schedule look like?

Life at our residential facility consists of a full schedule designed to help you seek the Lord. Highlights include:

  • Sunday morning and Thursday evening chapel services

  • One-one counseling

  • Accountability and Bible classes

  • small group prayer sessions

  • A weekly teaching video or Christian movie

In addition to the weekly schedule, you will be given a regimented homework routine and will develop a strong daily devotional life.

How do I pay for the program?

  • While in the program, most of our students will be assigned a job in the local community. Working will provide you with both a steady source of income and an opportunity to put into practice the spiritual principles you are learning. Occasional exceptions are made in unique situations on a case-by-case basis.

  • Before arriving you will be required to pay a $1000 induction fee, plus the cost of the first two weeks.

  • While in Phase One of the program the weekly fee is $195. During the second phase of the program, the fee is reduced to $145.

How is the program structured?

  • Our program is divided into two phases.

  • Phase One is usually the first 6 months of your program. It is structured to provide you with the foundation needed to achieve lasting victory over sexual sin by dealing with the root issues of your addiction.

  • Students are moved into Phase Two around the 6th month of their program. This transitional phase is structured to teach you how to sustain a victorious Christian walk after completing the program.

Why is the program nine months?

The short answer is that, in our experience, that’s how long it takes to dismantle the habits and thought patterns that have developed through years of sexual sin.

It doesn’t really seem like a program to me, it’s more like a 9 month revival! Simply put, God IS PRESENT here.
Jason
There is such a passion in the sermons we hear. It’s not just playing church. I think of where my life might be without Pure Life and it makes me shudder.
Lee
Before coming to Pure Life Ministries, my life was a big lie. I was a minister addicted to masturbation and pornography. I’m different today because I really met God at PLM.
