About RSA Ministries

We are a 12 Step program, and our members meet both face-to-face in our live meetings, and online in our forums and chat rooms. If you have struggled with compulsive sexual behaviors, or love someone who does, then you are in the right place! Come and join us.

RSA Ministries is a fellowship of men and women who have struggled with compulsive sexual behaviors, and of those who love them; and who share their experience, strength, and hope for recovery from compulsive sexual behaviors through the Christ. We are a community of believers who have found that our common struggle is God’s opportunity. Each day we work at allowing God to transform our lives by the renewal of our minds.
