The Gospel & Sexuality
On September 28, Brushfires partnered with the Wisconsin Family Council to sponsor a half-day pastors' workshop on sexuality. Our aim was to encourage and equip these leaders to respond to the sexual brokenness they face every day. The response was very positive. Read more...
"The Brushfires Foundation has been a straightforward, calm and persistent voice of reason addressing the sexual dysfunction all around and within us. The prayerful approach of compassion toward our fallen condition is constructive and inclusive. The public service offered opens communication on the issues of human sexuality and responds with Christian dignity offered to all." - Rev. Mark R. Meier, Sr.
"The Brushfires Foundation has been a blessing to me and my congregation as we navigate through sexual brokenness and better discern God’s plan for sexual wholeness from the many false messages out there. Brushfires equipped me with relevant and useful resources and provided insight and guidance as our church grows in Christ, begins to see discipleship as including both soul and body, and learns to minister to the sexually broken." - Rev. Stephen Wiesenauer
"Look into the work of The Brushfires Foundation and...you'll see the fingerprints of Jesus Christ, who has always cared deeply for the sexually broken--tenderly taking them by the hand, lending them His strength, and leading them into authentic and good manhood and womanhood. I pray you'll take advantage of the gift that is Brushfires Foundation, and more than that, I pray you'll join this worthy cause so the Brushfires will spread." - Josh Glaser, Executive Director, Regeneration Ministries
"The Brushfires Foundation cuts through the darkening haze about sexuality and brings forth the beautiful truth about who we really are in Christ." - Julie N., former ministry leader and mother of six.
"Last night and today's presentations were awesome. Thank you for all you are doing to impact our community, Church and families. You are doing God's work and I am grateful for what you are doing." - Karen R., church lay leader
"The ministry of Brushfires dedicates all its time and financial resources to reach out into the community in ways that improve their lives both physically and spiritually. And, I would say, does a better job than professional clergy can offer, simply because clergy don't have this level of expertise. Daniel and his ministry have been extremely helpful as a resource for those struggling with sexual sin in my congregation. And, The Brushfires Foundation has a prayer ministry which is a powerful weapon in fighting the culture of deceit and half-truths." - Rev. Steven Huff

On September 26, 2019, twenty-five pastors and church staff gathered in the Amherst, Wis. community center to discuss a topic that many people try to avoid: sex. The event, billed as a workshop to strengthen the Church’s response to the sexual crisis of our age, was jointly sponsored by The Brushfires Foundation and Wisconsin Family…
We often use the phrase “God’s design for healthy sexuality,” but this isn’t much more than a soundbite if we don’t take time to unpack and examine it. The Christian vision understands healthy sexuality as a means by which people make themselves a gift for another.
I once attended a conference that began by asking everyone to pray about what God was calling us to share over the weekend. Only one phrase came to mind: “All you have to offer is your brokenness.”
