July 19: Uncovering Hidden Shame
Restoring Men and Women Affected by Pornography and Prostitution
An increase in sex trafficking during large sporting events shines a spotlight on Minneapolis and the 2018 Super Bowl at US Bank Stadium, and garners warranted attention for victims involved in prostitution and sexual exploitation.
But who are the perpetrators? You might be surprised to find many of them attend our churches.
Come learn the realities of pornography, prostitution and the prevalence of how these sins are kept hidden in the church.
This seminar will focus on resourcing pastors on the profile of offenders, the stages of succumbing to temptation, and how the Church can minister and offer hope to those struggling with secret sexual sins.
This is a wake-up call for church leadership as we teach the facts, along with practical ways to help through ministry and accountability efforts. We believe restoration can happen when awareness and prevention efforts increase within the Church.
Sergeant Grant Snyder is a veteran police officer and the lead investigator in all sex trafficking cases for the Minneapolis Police Department. Sgt. Snyder’s work and experience substantiates the hidden reality that men engaging in sexual exploitation and prostitution are often fathers, husbands, and church attendees. He communicates the situation of adults struggling with pornography and prostitution with compassion and a desire for the hearts of these men and women to be changed.
