Pastor Finds Healing After 17 Years Struggle With Porn Addiction

1

There was the part of me that no one, including my wife knew about

Greg Oliver who lost his job in 2009 after his 17-year addiction to sex and pornography was exposed, says he has found healing and a new ministry with his wife that seeks to help others overcome the devastation of pornography and sexual addiction.

The Alabama pastor and his wife, Stacey, are now members of Mountaintop Church in Birmingham, where he started a new role as pastor for care and recovery in March 2018, according to KRON4.

The former worship pastor said before his secret was exposed he thought he could manage his bad habits. It all crumbled the day he mistakenly sent an email to someone he thought he had a connection with.

“There was the part that everybody saw, who was a music and worship pastor, who was leading the band, leading the church in worship, and then there was the part of me that no one — including my wife knew about — this person had been struggling with sexual sin and addictive stuff, pornography for years and it kept progressively getting worse,” he explained.

“Foolishly I believed for a long time that finding better efforts, better self-will techniques, that I would be able to defeat it on my own, and it just doesn’t ever work like that. It kept getting worse and worse. What started as kind of dabbling, porn addiction, eventually crossed the line into physical adultery,” Greg added.

He said that leading his double life affected the relationship he had with his wife in devastating ways.
