This Sunday, February 23rd, Crissy Moran will be with us at our Celebration Services at 9am, 10:30am & Noon as part of our Victorious Secrets message series. She’ll share her powerful story of redemption in an interview with me and Pam.
I first heard Crissy’s story in a XXXchurch.com podcast several years ago, not too long after she left the adult film industry and I was deeply moved by her courage and the way God has miraculously changed her life by bringing her out of the darkness of pornography. Since then, she has been featured on ABC’s Nightline, Christianity Today, and spoken at churches and colleges around the country about her journey to freedom.
Obviously, this isn’t going to be a typical Sunday at your average church, but we’ve never been about going through the motions. We’re all about God’s power and grace that changes lives. I believe that Crissy’s story will resonate with everyone who has felt confused, broken, alone and abandoned. She reminds us that there is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still!
On Sunday, we will not be crude, but we will be direct as we deal honestly with the issue of pornography. We highly encourage parents to have their kids in our awesome KonnectionKidz ministries through 6th grade. We also believe that students 7th grade and up should be in the Celebration Services to hear God’s truth about these issues. The fact is, they’re getting twisted view of this information from the media and their friends at school. We want to raise up a generation who knows and follows God’s standards for their sexuality.
I know there are some people who are concerned that addressing this issue head on in this way is risky because of so many men (and women) who struggle with porn. However, we are not going to stand by and do nothing while we watch lives, marriages, and families fall apart. The church has been silent on this issue for too long, and we’re going to be proactive and allow God to bring hope and healing in the context of our church family.
It’s important to know that Crissy Moran only has one official website: NEWcrissymoran.com
Because of the contracts that she signed years ago, her images and movies are still out there by those who have taken advantage of her. Crissy isn’t connected with any of those and has received no money for those since she left the porn industry. It’s a sad reminder that whatever you post on the internet is there to stay. So, please DO NOT do random searches for Crissy.
Please pray that God uses her in a powerful way as she shares openly and honestly with us about how her life has been changed! This is a great week to invite your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to be with us! I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
