"Pornography is the greatest cancer in the Church today." - Chuck Swindoll


Statistically, 3 in 5 churchgoing men and 1 in 7 churchgoing women watch pornography at least once month. Did you also know that 7 out of 10 wives of pornography users show symptoms of PTSD when they learn of their husband's pornography use? Not only are wives suffering because of pornography, but many times, the entire family.

From 12-13 March, Cru Singapore and Josh McDowell Ministry are co-organising this conference for Christian leaders, in partnership with Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church, to shine light on the reality of the problem, and through the promises of the Word, bring light into that darkness.

Set Free Summit (Singapore) will equip attendees on how to address the issue of pornography with confidence, strength and proven solutions from experts in the field promoting positive solutions.

We pray that you'll leave this conference armed with knowledge, actionable next steps and most importantly, hope.


Date: 12-13 March 2019

Time: 8.30am-6.30pm for both days

Venue: Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church

Cost: $100 (for first 150 registrants), $120 (normal rate)

Dr Donald L. Hilton Jr.

Dr Donald L. Hilton Jr. is a neurosurgeon in San Antonio, Texas and the spinal fellowship director in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio.

He speaks extensively on the addictive impact of pornography on the human brain, and on the promotion of this addictive medium by the pornography industry. Dr. Hilton promotes a public health approach in protecting children and emerging adults from the alliance of a profiting pornography industry, apologetic academicians who are culturally supportive of the industry, and a mainstream media ideologically aligned with sexual exploitation and objectification of women.

An expert in studying the neural mechanisms of addiction, he was invited by the Vatican in 2017 to address the effects of pornography on children at the Gregorian Pontifical University in Rome.

Jessica Harris

Jessica Harris is a blogger, author, international speaker, and creator of the blog beggarsdaughter.com, an online resource for women who struggle with pornography. She is recognized as one of the pioneering voices speaking out about female sexuality in the church, primarily the fact that Christian women do struggle with porn.

In sharing her own story of struggle and freedom, she raises awareness about the issues and the added shame women face. It's her desire to communicate the truth of God's grace to women who struggle, to help them find freedom, and to equip churches, families, and leadership to share that same message. She is passionate about grace, singleness, healthy sexuality, and having hard conversations in the church.

Through her candid, humorous style she's impacted leaders and women around the world, most recently speaking in Mexico, New Zealand, and Canada as well as throughout the United States.  In 2016, she released her memoir, Beggar's Daughter, and she has also published a devotional for women, Love Done Right: Reflections. She is working on her third book, a Bible study of John 4.
