What is Men of Integrity?
Men of Integrity (MOI) is a part of Christ Community Church's Renewal ministry in Omaha Nebraska dealing with men's sexual brokenness. It is a program that brings men together in a safe and honest environment where they can address their deep seeded lust issues. MOI is an open group, new arrivals are welcome any week.
Mission of Men of Integrity
There are five primary pillars that MOI uses to help men heal.
- Safety- Give men a safe place where they are loved and accepted for who they are.
- Healing- Help men connect with God in the midst of their struggle.
- Honesty- Help men live an honest and authentic lifestyle.
- Education- Expose men to different aspects of recovery and give them immediate tools to start addressing their addiction.
- Accountability- To keep men accountable and give them hope for purity.

These are books and websites that have been influential to the leaders of Men of Integrity. They are a good start to your reading and can open you up to ideas and topics that further the conversation started during the 20 week study. Check back often as this is a living list of resources that we will add to and comment on as we develop.
Most guys dealing with porn don't think they have that bad of a problem. Test yourself and see if you fit into the "porn addiction" catagory. Most of you are not used to being honest, so really try to be on this self assessment, www.sexhelp.com
Internet Filter and reporting software
If you are struggling with purity and do not have every computer you come in contact with filtered, you are most likely in denial. So step out of denial and get one of these services for every computer. Make sure you send the report to someone that will keep you really accountable (i.e. wife, pastor, mom, girlfriend, etc...). Ask before you sign them up.
