Faithful & True
Faithful and True is the premier Christian treatment program specializing in sexual purity and addiction issues, located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, exclusively created and personally facilitated by Dr. Mark Laaser. With over 26 years of recovery experience, Mark and Debbie Laaser lead men, women, and couples struggling with sexual purity in Intensive Workshops rated by workshop alumni as “life changing.” In 1996, Dr. Laaser felt the need to further develop sex addiction recovery at the local level. Dr. Laaser set forth a model which would encourage the start of support groups within the church. In February, 1997, Faithful and True of Jacksonville, Inc. was born. In August of 2007, Jerry and Susan Sinclair surrendered to the call of being full-time marriage missionaries for Faithful and True of Jacksonville, Inc. This missionary appointment has allowed the support groups to flourish, while becoming even more effective with the ministry of helping men get victory over sexual sin.
