About Us

Realizing that you’re sexually attracted to children can be like stepping into a nightmare. This isn’t something anybody wants, and leads to questions like: “Am I a monster? Am I worthy of love? Who can save me?” and “If God is real, why would he allow me to turn out this way?” Without any answers, pedophiles often fall into depression, rejection, and temptation. We all enter life with a bent toward sin, but harming children is terrible to consider. For those with pedophilia, life can mean either living in bitter hopelessness or giving way to sexual temptation. We need another way.

Started in 2015 by Michel Greenwood, our ministry has grown to include several volunteer contributors who all experience pedophilia. These include Trent in Australia, Pedro in Brazil, Alma in the Dominican Republic, and Mitchell and Bismarck, both in the USA. We firmly believe that all people are made in the image of God, are loved by God, and are called to believe in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sins and regeneration unto new life. We know pedophilia doesn’t negate any of that; it doesn’t define us, and we are not the stereotypes or statistics. We believe there is victory over temptation, and forgiveness leading to change. The truths we live by as disciples of Jesus are more than sufficient. If you experience pedophilia, know that you can have dignity and hope.

We emphatically affirm that child sexual abuse is a gross violation of God’s moral law, and a personal violation of a child’s body and spirit. It’s ALWAYS harmful for any child involved. For this reason, we affirm the criminality of child sexual abuse. We believe that God’s design for sex is between a man and woman within marriage. Through the strength of God’s Holy Spirit living in us, we can faithfully choose to walk in God’s grace each day and not stray into the darkness of sexual abuse (including the use of child pornography).

We also aim to help the Christian Church address the topic of pedophilia and to reach those struggling to live as citizens of heaven. The Church has the opportunity to help families both inside and outside who are ravaged by shame and sexual abuse. If we can save one child from abuse and encourage one person toward holiness, it will all be worth it.

Even if you disagree with us on some points, we would appreciate your thoughts or concerns. Our passion is to see hope restored, hearts strengthened, sin abandoned, and lives transformed – all to the glory of God.

Will You Pray With Us?

Pray that God will give us courage, commitment, and boldness in the work we’re doing here.

There are few public Christian ministries of this kind in the world, sharing the gospel of Jesus with those who are sexually attracted to children. Sometimes it can feel discouraging or intimidating, but each of us knows this is where God wants us.

Pray that God will be with us in our own temptations, especially sexual temptations, fear, and pride.

We are not “super Christians” by any means. We’re very normal people and we need God’s grace and mercy in our own points of weakness. Talking about our experiences of pedophilia, even anonymously, can be intimidating. And on the flip-side, there’s a certain temptation toward prideful grandiosity with being involved in something so unique in this ministry.

Pray for the people we are reaching out to, that they would have open hearts to know the love of Jesus.

With so many other people out there telling pedophiles that they are unlovable, it’s understandable to shut everyone out and become callus and bitter. Jesus extends his grace and forgiveness to anyone who comes to him, although that requires a level of faith and trust on the part of those who come. Additionally, a person’s pride would say “I don’t need a savior, I’m good enough on my own.” It takes the work of the Spirit to bring a person to Jesus.

Pray that child sexual abuse would be prevented.

It should go without saying, when a pedophile gives in to temptation it causes so much trauma and pain. That’s the biggest part of why this is such a difficult topic to address. Surrendering sexual brokenness to God’s intent may seem impossible, but God’s love can turn a person away from sins that would culminate in child sexual abuse.

Pray that God would provide more workers for this area of spiritual harvest, whether that be through this ministry or others.

As Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Even as the world seems to grow darker, there are many who would gladly turn to Jesus from sin if only they knew they could and that he would receive them. But very few people are willing to tell pedophiles that Jesus loves them, and calls them to repent and follow him.

Pray that God would be glorified as more people are redeemed and transformed by his love and mercy.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” -John 3:16-18

The greatest thing we can do to honor and glorify God is believe in his son Jesus. His love is not thwarted by pedophilia and he is worthy of our love and worship.

On behalf of all of us involved with Christian Pedophile,

Thank You.
