Dr. Bissell grew up in a Christian home, but for many years in his early ministry he had a secret sin. During that time, Jeanette suffered through the pain of dealing with his sexual addiction. In 1992, he went to a denominational leader to confess his sin, hoping to be accountable and remain in ministry.
Renewing Pastors provides help for pastors and couples who seek healthy sexuality in their marriages; helping spouses wounded by their mates involvement with sexual sin; helping organizations that face these issues.
If you’re not ready to talk with us, or you want information for someone else, Renewing Pastors has resources to help you get started. We’ve linked to quick online self assessments, 12-step groups, accountability software, websites, conferences, videos and book resources.
