Conquer Series

The Battle Plan For Purity

For the first time in history, a cinematic teaching series on sexual purity is here to offer men proven principles and practical tools to conquer pornography and other sexual bondage. Conquer Series Brochure pdf

What is the Conquer Series

Real men are rising up across our nation. These men are not just heroes on display, but heroes to their families – and heroes when no one is looking. These men are learning to become more than conquerors through Christ. You see, conquerors aren’t born – they are made. 

Leadership starts in the uttermost hidden parts of our lives.

More and more men, including Christian leaders, are fighting for their spiritual lives, but do not know how to prevail against the enemy’s assault.

Conquer Series is a Proven Battle Plan

The Conquer Series is a new DVD teaching series for men. Included in the set are five 1-hour long teaching DVDs and a leader’s DVD. This is not just another study tool for men, but a tried and proven battle plan for purity in a lustful and Godless world.

The host of the Series is Dr. Ted Roberts, founder of Pure Desire Ministries International and former U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot in Vietnam. He was the senior pastor of a church in Oregon with over 7000 members and has counseled and discipled men for over thirty years. We have condensed thirty years of Dr. Roberts’ knowledge and experience into five hours of simple, yet comprehensive, teaching. (www.conquerseries.com)

…And what happens after?

The Conquer Series lays out a powerful road map for sexual recovery, but we know the journey out of a struggle with pornography takes more than 6-10 weeks, so what do we do once we complete the Conquer Series?

This is a question we often receive from churches who understand the need for an ongoing process of accountability and healing.

Dr. Ted Roberts, host of the Conquer Series, has created a powerful recovery process called the Seven Pillars of Freedom which is a great follow up course that allows men to put into place what they’ve learnt in the Conquer Series. If the Conquer Series is boot camp, then the Seven Pillars of Freedom is the ongoing training that helps men go into combat and finish the journey well.

The course is based on the workbook (unfortunately no DVD like in the Conquer Series) and each pillar has 5 lessons, so 35 lessons in total. This means that the course will go for 35 weeks or up to a 12-15 months depending on how the group breaks up the work.

Each participant will complete a weekly review of the FASTER Scale which helps them understand their emotional triggers, as well as a commitment to change while addressing the following Seven Pillars:

  • Pillar 1: Breaking through denial
  • Pillar 2: Understanding the nature of sexual addiction
  • Pillar 3: Surrendering to the process
  • Pillar 4: Limiting damage
  • Pillar 5: Establishing sobriety
  • Pillar 6: The battle is in your mind
  • Pillar 7: A spiritual growth plan

Pure Desire

In his book, Pure Desire, Dr. Ted Roberts writes about a lot of the analogies and concepts that he presents during the Conquer Series. Reading this book is a great way to reinforce what you have learnt in your first five weeks of group.

  • The Conquer Series groups that we are seeing have the most success in participants walking out sustained sobriety and ongoing spiritual growth are the ones that continue into the Seven Pillars of Freedom. One Conquer Group Leader has recently told us
  • “All members of the group express this as being the best small group study they have been involved in. They are also growing greatly in overcoming their addiction and becoming the men Christ designed them to be.”

Why is Conquer Series necessary for the church?

The church is a microcosm; a portion of the larger society. While we are taught, and encouraged to be different as Christians among non-believers, we still struggle with our natural humaneness and sin.
