ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Carl Thomas is an ordained pastor, porn recovery coach, online workshop instructor, and former COO of XXXchurch.com. He spent 17 years in the for-profit sector before transitioning to full-time ministry to help individuals who feel trapped and stuck by their pornography use.

Carl's knowledge and advice come from his own twenty years of experience as a former porn addict who found lasting freedom a decade ago.

After seven years of building and leading Small Groups Online, an online recovery-focused small groups program, Carl launched Live Free Ministries and created the Live Free app to help bridge the gap between millions of men who want help but lack the safe and supportive community needed to find real freedom.

Carl's passion for helping individuals find freedom, peace, and purpose is only matched by his love for his family, Philadelphia sports teams, and his white Jeep Wrangler.
