Tray is joined by Jake Kissack and Ben Bennett from Josh McDowell ministries to talk their own struggles with pornography, the shame that comes with that and how they are using their stories to make a difference now. They discuss their work with Josh McDowell ministries and how you can get involved.
Ben grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia and met Christ at an early age. After being heavily involved in the campus ministry of Cru throughout college, and developing a great desire to see college students transformed by the gospel, he joined their staff in 2011. For over 10 years of his life, Ben battled a porn addiction and other forms of habitual sexual sin before coming to lasting freedom through a Biblical and clinical approach to sexual addiction recovery.
Until recently, Ben worked with the campus ministry of Cru serving as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Coordinator for Cru’s sexual addiction recovery groups. He currently resides in Dallas, Texas and serves with Josh McDowell Ministry as an author, speaker, and evangelist supporting the health and restoration of men and women struggling with woundedness, habitual sin, and sexual brokenness. He enjoys traveling, music, and the finest of fast food cuisines, Taco Bell.
Jake was raised where the buffalo still do roam, on his family’s 3000 acre angus cattle ranch in Wyoming. His adventurous heart was pursued and captivated by Jesus as far back as memory serves. His passion to see Jesus bring life to all was bolstered in his master’s degree thesis work on how pornography negatively affects the church. His 13 year journey with a porn addiction crushed his passion and compelled him to seek true freedom, which was found through Christian sexual addiction recovery. Jake resides in Dallas, Texas and serves as a developing author, speaker and evangelist, supporting the health and restoration of men and women struggling with woundedness, habitual sin, and sexual brokenness.
