Unbound Ministries wants to help you start a conversation about this difficult topic!
There are several resources available for your community to engage this material. Unless noted, most speaking engagements feature the founder of Unbound Ministries, Ezra Snyder. Read more about his background here.
General Audience Events:
The Porn Epidemic: Fact or Fiction? is a PG rated talk designed to educate the average church about the true state of pornography in the US. This is designed to gently introduce a church to the truth about what is happening with families and pornography. Statistics used will be more general and broad-based in nature. The goal of the message is to educate the audience about the issue of pornography in general and how it is affecting men, women, children, families and marriages throughout America. The book Becoming Unbound is generally offered as an additional resource to purchase after the message.
Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Porn is a PG-13 rated talk designed to educate the average church about the true state of pornography within the US, particularly the current generation of young men and women. This will include all the material above but be presented at a deeper, more individual level. Statistics will be specific and directed at each demographic of the population. The goal of this message is to educate the audience about the issue of pornography at a personal level while providing a message of hope and freedom. The book Becoming Unbound is generally offered as an additional resource to purchase after the message.
Men’s and Women’s Events:
How Men Work is a PG-13 talk designed to help women understand this issue, why it is an issue and what to do about it in their personal relationships with men as well as with their sons. This message is designed for women age 18 and older.
A Special Evening for Wives is an R-rated* talk including all the information in the How Men Work talk plus more in-depth information about men’s struggles and how a wife can support and help her husband. This also features an open Q&A session. This message is designed for married women.

Talking with Your Son about Porn is a one-day workshop style conference. It consists of three sessions: getting comfortable with the topic, goals and reasons for having the conversation with your son, and a panel of dads who are actively engaging in the conversation today, followed by open Q&A. It is typically an all day event and includes lunch plus a copy of the book Becoming Unbound: From Pornography to Freedom.
Becoming Unbound contains a Friday night session (typically 7pm to 10pm) plus a Saturday workshop (typically 9am to 3pm). Designed to be hosted at a church facility to achieve a very low barrier to entry for attendees. Consists of talks such as “My Story,” “Why Men Go Here,” “Walking With Your Son” and “Walking in Freedom” as well as time to pursue God individually. Mini-conferences are rated R and are designed for men 18 and older.
Becoming Unbound is either a two or three day retreat consisting of five to seven messages as several small group sessions and dedicated times of solitude with God. These are focused on covering all the core concepts of the book Becoming Unbound.
I understand that these are very sensitive topics. I understand that they may not be normal faire for your community. If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. I would love to discuss with you my heart for this ministry and why I do it.
*Please note that these talks include real life examples and stories that are generally not appropriate for men or women under the age of 18, hence the “R” rating.
