For over 17 years, Andrae P. Crismon, Sr. grappled with lust addiction even as a believer who had been raised in the church. Interestingly enough, his struggle with pornography began the same year that he accepted God’s call to ministry. The insights shared here are not merely academic but rather inspiration gathered after the Holy Spirit delivered him from chains that he was incapable of escaping of his own power. His life now is a testament to God’s ability to turn his struggle into His ministry. For over 6 years, Andrae has been free from this addiction and proudly serving as the pastor of Higher Ground Worship Center Church of God in Christ in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is married to the love of his life, Crystal. The Crismons have been blessed with two sons, Andrae II and Caleb.
