Sexual Integrity 1.2.3. Course
- One lesson per week.

Sexual integrity is won and maintained in community. This 15-week course has versions for either male or female groups. In this course, participants form a small support group and complete one lesson per week. Each lesson consists of teaching, reflection prompts, prayer, and Scripture memorization. Participants respond to the lessons of fellow group members using chat features built into the online teaching venue.
- Participants learn skills for stewarding their sexuality.
- Participants build a support community.
What is the commitment?
Participants should plan on spending 20-40 minutes per week to complete their lesson and an additional 15 – 30 minutes commenting on lessons of fellow participants. In-person meetings are left up to the group to determine and carry-out. All participants should have a desire to be open and engage with other participants. They should be willing to help and be helped.
Each group should have a facilitator identified. The facilitator acts as a catalyst for online participation and in-person meetings.
