Clay Crosse is on his way to Liberty University

by Cory Newell

Dove Award-winning recording artist Clay Crosse and his wife Renee will be visiting Liberty University from Oct. 26-27. They will be leading Thursday night seminars for men and women that will address issues of morality, relationships, dating and marriage — and they will be speaking from experience.

Everything changed for the Crosse family in 1998 when Clay admitted to his wife that he was estranged from the Lord — even while he was being lauded as one of the great Christian recording artists of the day. Out of that painful conversation, and the ensuing months of healing, the Crosses rededicated their lives and home back to their savior.

Since then, Crosse has traveled the nation, candidly testifying of his past struggle with pornography and committing much of his life to raising a generation of students and families that embrace radical holiness for the glory of God.

According to www.blazinggrace.org, over 90 percent of Christian men admitted that they were feeling disconnected from God because of a lust, pornography, or sexual fantasy that has gained a foothold in their lives. Women are also affected by this morality issue and represent one out of three visitors to all adult websites. It is reported that 9.4 million women access adult websites monthly. Sadly, 59 percent of Americans indicate that it is “morally acceptable” to have sexual thoughts or fantasies.

LU sophomore and Jenny Fehsenfeld, an SLD, said that she has spoken with several young women who struggle with pornography or impure thoughts.  She looks forward to the positive impact that Renee Crosse will have, especially with the females on campus. Fehsenfeld said, “Purity and morality are not just male issues. If we abstain from the lusts of our flesh and purpose in our hearts to embrace morality, we would experience the beautiful blessing and tremendous freedom of purity in our relationships.”

Crosse will be speaking to men on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in DeMoss Hall 1113/1114, while Renee will address the women at 9 p.m. in the same location.  The event is free and open to the public.
