Freedom From Pornography is Possible.

We’re Here to Help

First Light Recovery Ministry exists to help men break free from the controlling power of sexual sin and addiction. Sexual addiction often includes an addiction to pornography, but often leads to adultery, prostitution, and many other destructive behaviors. Sexual addictions can be debilitating, painful, and often leads to hopelessness and overwhelming shame.

First Light exists to help you pick up the pieces and rebuild a life of healthy sexual integrity.

We use a time tested and proven Christ-Centered group approach, walking with men through their pain, frustration, shame, personal story, and showing them how the forgiveness and grace of Jesus Christ applies to their lives and circumstances.


“The way of the righteous is like the first light of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.” -Proverbs 4:18


How it works

First Light groups are private and all members commit to a confidentiality agreement. Groups of 8-10 men meet weekly in various locations to pray, confess, check in, support, encourage, and work through an in-depth curriculum together. Some group members will be new, while others will be further along in recovery. Each group is facilitated by 1-2 men who have been trained to help guide discussion and maintain healthy group dynamics.

Groups provide a safe place to be honest about sinful addictions and serve as a temporary support and accountability system as members work towards building long-term support structures outside of the group.

Once a member has achieved freedom from their addictive sexual behaviors and has established their outside support structure, they graduate from the program. Former members often continue to be involved by becoming mentors for new First Light group members.

Group participation is $50/month - Those who are unable to pay this amount may apply for scholarships, which are graciously provided by supporting churches throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area.
