My name is Craig Gross and back in January of 1999 I left my job as a youth pastor and began a new organization with my best friend Jake. We started “Craig & Jake LIVE”, speaking at youth events and eventually put on our own events across the country. A few years later after seeing so many young people devastated by the effects of pornography I saw a need to create a safe place online where people could get help and the truth about pornography and in early 2002 launched XXXchurch.com. The ministry of XXXchurch has gone all over the world. Over 100 million people have visited the website or read about the organization online. And this lead us to develop XXXchurch software … Let me explain.
Way back in 2002, I let my mouth run ahead of my brain and announced at a porn show that we would eventually introduce a software program that would keep track of where you went online and report any questionable sites to an accountability partner—and that it would be free. This led to a series of phone calls and emails with a developer and, eventually, to X3watch, which has since been downloaded more than a million times and has gained a global reach, keeping people accountable around the world. We now have over 1 million people using our FREE accountabilty software X3watch, and our X3watch Premium product which includes porn blocking capabilities for every single major device and platform with just 1 account.
X3watch has transformed from a simple idea to become something greater than any of us ever imagined at the start.
In other words, X3watch has grown up. We took everything great about X3watch and enhanced it, then added a whole bunch of other new, great features that we couldn’t be more excited about. X3watch is now poised not only to offer accountability to exponentially more people, but also to create additional funding for XXXchurch and allow us to reach the audacious goals we’ve set for our ministry (just a reminder: you can keep up with those goals at X3goals.com).
Porn addiction is one of the most difficult addictions to overcome, but XXXchurch.com is your resource online to fight porn addiction. We prevail through awareness, prevention, and recovery. Pornography addiction is threatening lives, families, and children. XXXchurch offers addiction recovery resources for men, women, parents, and couples. We have weekly articles on how to conquer difficult issues, as well as porn accountability and filtering software.
We have now created iParent.tv – “Parenting is hard, but tech does not have to be.”
iParent.tv is an online resource that features hundreds of videos and posts to keep parents in the loop on all the latest tech fads that your kids might or might not be into. Want to know how to set the privacy settings on the Xbox One? We show you how. Want to decide whether SnapChat is right for your teenager? We give you the info. Want to find out what Reddit is all about? We have the answers. If it’s online, it’s on iparent.tv – Get fast, thorough information and get the most out of your devices while taking care of your kids at the same time.
The world is going to get more accountable and more people are going to find the freedom that comes with living out in the open with a few other close friends. It’s going to be great, and we couldn’t be happier that X3watch and iParent.tv are going to be part of it.
