Pure Desire

Sexual Health and Freedom Ministry

Pure Desire

All of us struggle with some form of sexual brokenness, whether through our thoughts, actions, or the effect of others actions toward us. We believe that God made us inherently sexual beings and thus a core component of Christian discipleship must include healing and freedom in our sexuality.

Pure Desire logo Tallgrass is proud to partner with Pure Desire Ministries, who have been leading the way for many years to help men and women find hope, freedom, and healing from sexual brokenness through Jesus Christ. They develop the materials, we lead the groups. Pure Desire groups support men and women in their recovery by providing a safe, confidential place to process their life story: learning how family of origin, traumatic experiences, and wounding messages impact relationships.

If you're struggling with some form of unwanted sexual behavior or with the trauma of betrayal from the sexual issues of a loved one, we'd love to help. If you're interested in joining a group or have questions, men contact: Dave Geldart (Associate Pastor) at davegeldart@tallgrassatthewell.church and women contact Jenn Geldart (Group Leader) at jenn31@gmail.com. All contacts and group rosters will be kept confidential.
