Tuesdays @9PM EST


Wednesdays @9AM EST


Thursdays @8PM EST


Climb Teams are online accountability/recovery groups for Christian men who are serious about overcoming porn addiction and other unwanted sexual behaviors that are hindering them from experiencing God's best for their life.

The opposite of addiction is not "sobriety." It's connection with God, His Word, and like-minded brothers in Christ who are helping you grow and holding you accountable. Climb Teams are a safe-place to find the connection, guidance, support, and accountability that you need to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Your body, mind, and spirit all matter to God and also to your success in life!


rightarrowEach team meets online via Zoom once per week for 60-70 minutes with their team leader and like-minded Christian brothers who are serious about pursuing freedom, growth, and wholeness in Christ!

rightarrowEach team consists of no more than 10 guys to keep it personal and manageable.

rightarrowThe Meeting Agenda is emailed to team members prior to each weekly meeting.

rightarrowEach meeting begins with prayer and some brief guidance/encouragement from Scripture or from the book that we are working through.

rightarrowEach team member is given approx 5-minutes to answer the weekly check-in questions.

rightarrowEach team member is encouraged and prayed for after they share.

rightarrowTeam members are given weekly homework assignments to help them learn/grow.

rightarrowTeam members keep communication in a private group chat using the Signal App for daily check-ins, prayer, and support/encouragement.

rightarrowTeam members receive a weekly email from Jason (The Belay) with updates, guidance, encouragement, helpful links, etc.

rightarrowTeam members can contact their team leader 24/7 and expect a response within 24 hours.

rightarrowTo understand the recovery process, team members work through the books:  The Game Plan by Counselor Joe Dallas and CLEAN by Dr. Doug Weiss

  • 1 Month = Green Carabiner

quote-left  I learned about Climb Teams from listening to The GRIZ Podcast. Although I have found traditional 12-step programs to be helpful in achieving many years of sobriety from drug and alcohol addiction, I have found pornography addiction to be extremely difficult to escape. The Climb Team concept of recovery with a close group of men in a faith-based setting seemed appealing, so I gave it a shot. I recently have been able to achieve 90-days sobriety from sexual sin! More than that, I have found a close band of brothers who are open and honest about our struggles and meet regularly to help us stay clean. Jason is a skilled and compassionate team leader who runs a no BS group that is solidly steeped in biblical principles. I look forward to future growth in recovery, along with improvements in my marriage and increased vitality in my faith. I truly thank God for placing this program in front of me. - M.

quote-left I was skeptical about airing out my dirty laundry. I hate admitting that I have a problem that I can not overcome on my own. I tried and failed over and over. I found myself in periods of sobriety and then out of nowhere I would fall off the wagon. I have found that confessing my weakness to other brothers and having an actual climbing plan is the pathway to overcoming sexual sin (or any sin for that matter). My Climb Team has helped me achieve 6 months and counting of porn-free living. If you are willing to be open and honest ... and legitimately combat sin with a group of guys who struggle just like you, then you are ready to join a Climb Team. My Climb Team has helped me experience guilt-free living, clarity of mind, and a deep brotherhood. There is probably more at stake than you realize. It’s worth the investment! Stop trying to climb alone! - J.

quote-left A Climb Team was just the thing I needed. I needed a community of brothers climbing the same trail, fighting the same fight. Since joining up with my Climb Team, I've found support, encouragement, truth and true accountability. We have a safe space to share our struggles, confess our failures, and walk out our biblical command to bear our brothers sins and burdens. I look forward to what the future holds. - B.

quote-left My Climb Team with Jason George has been a huge blessing to me . My porn / unwanted sexual behaviors (sin chains) have been broken, and my Climb Team has been a valuable tool. Trying to do it alone or just with an "accountability partner" is not enough support to overcome your addiction. You need a group of Christian men who struggle with the same challenges and climb with you. - R.

quote-left I've been battling the grips of porn for as long as I can remember, and for years I lived in shame and isolation with the mindset that if I tried hard enough I could overcome it on my own. But I learned that I couldn't do it on my own, I needed the fellowship of like-minded brothers that share in the same struggles that I struggle with, and understand how difficult it is to stop looking at porn. Climb Teams are a safe place where you can be totally honest with your struggles and will NEVER be shamed or condemned. It's a group of men that will love you, pray for you, and support you no matter where you're at on your journey. At times you'll be lovingly challenged and pushed to become the godly men we all want to become. I can't put into words how much my Climb Team has helped me and I know it can help you too. - T.

quote-left After battling porn addiction for many years, the Climb Team was something that really assisted in helping me maintain my integrity. It also strengthened my faith by providing fellowship and the word of God. I can honestly say it has been an awesome blessing in my life. - M.

quote-left I've been blessed to be a member of a Climb Team - a men's accountability group done right. In 2.5 decades, I've never fully understood, nor seen how to do it like this. Now I'm learning what 'right' looks like and how to be 'iron sharpening iron.' We share our weaknesses, lessons, best practices, and our triumphs. We pray for and uplift each other without judging, and spur one another on towards love and good deeds. This applies not just to typical moral purity issues, but also extends to physical, mental, and emotional health. We engage relevant Scriptures, ask good questions, and learn together in a power-packed weekly meeting over Zoom. It helps me to be virtual  because it goes with me when I travel, which is often. We have bonded quickly even though most of us did not know each other before we started. You owe it to yourself, your family (future spouse/family), and God to take advantage of and contribute to others through participation in a Climb Team. - B.

quote-left Climb Teams have been life-changing!  I’ve tried so many ways to stop my addiction to pornography before and never gained any traction. Today, I am less than 30 days away from being 1-year porn-free, thanks to my Climb Team. Climb Teams are not just another accountability group but a group of men sharpening each other to lead a life centered on Christ and the Gospel truth. My relationships with my wife, kid, and Christ have all improved due to the relationships I’ve gained within Climb Teams. If you want to take a lasting step in the right direction, I highly recommend joining a Climb Team today. - T.

quote-left Since I have joined Climb Teams I have been able to connect with a group of men who support and hold me accountable in my walk with God. I have made leaps and bounds over my sexual sin that once controlled my life and was hindering my connection with God. Although I fought sexual sin in the past, I was never successful. With Climb Teams I found the need and importance of doing this together with brothers in Christ. I wasn’t able to do this alone. Yes, I still fight temptation and my fleshly desires. I haven’t done this perfectly, but I would not be able to make the progress I've made on my own. I have also found a purpose and it’s not just to fight sexual sin but to be a better husband, father, leader, and to ultimately share the gospel with those who are lost. I was always covered with guilt, shame, and the weight of my sin when I was battling alone, but my Climb Team has given me consistent guidance, connection, support, and accountability. I no longer carry the guilt, shame, and weight of my habitual sin. Climb Teams have changed my life and my family's lives. - E.

quote-left My Climb Team has been fundamental to my progress in my pursuit of sexual purity/sobriety. My pursuit has not been perfect since joining Climb Teams but having a coach and brothers in the pursuit with me to help set you straight and pick you up when you are veering off course has been so beneficial to my life. I don't want to know where I would be without it. Checking in weekly, learning how to do life without lust/porn, and forming relationships with other Climb Team members has helped me tremendously in gaining momentum in this difficult pursuit. I thank God for Jason and the Climb Team members. They are a huge encouragement to me and are a huge blessing. They are helping me become the husband and father I need to be and I can't recommend Climb Teams enough for Christian guys who are stuck in sexual sin! - W.

quote-left Having been involved with my Climb Team for almost two years, I can see many improvements in both my marriage and faith journey. I am able to enjoy a closer relationship with my wife without the guilt and shame of hiding sexual sin. I am likewise able to pray and worship without hindrance, as I've learned many tools of recovery from the group. Best of all, the relationships I've developed in the Climb Team have been supportive and enriching. I'm grateful that I took the leap of faith to join! - M.

quote-left I am a 45 year old pastor who began struggling with pornography when I was 11 years old. Over the years I made many different attempts at getting sober, but the greatest success that I have had has been since I have joined Climb Teams. The combination of daily check ins, weekly accountability meetings and regularly reading books on purity have been extremely effective at helping me maintain my sobriety and move toward greater degrees of freedom. Jason is extremely effective at pastoring addicts -  combining a compassionate heart with a healthy amount of positive confrontation and challenge. I recommend Climb Teams to anyone serious about walking in sexual purity. The money invested is well worth it. - K.

quote-left Climb teams has meant a lot to me. I have only been part of the group for about 5 months, but in the time I have been active, the group has been a critical part of my recovery. Knowing the support and encouragement of the group has helped me continue to practice and learn new tools to elevate my recovery. It hasn’t always been easy in recovery, the guys help keep me accountable even if I don’t always want it. Yet, it is that accountability and camaraderie that makes climb teams so important. The guys encourage you but they don’t let you slack off either. They push you because they know that you are able to be the best man God has created you to be. That is the power of climb teams. Knowing that God is elevated, but that you are able to be pushed to be the best man possible. I am grateful for the connection of climb teams and the time we check-in and connect has meant a lot to me. - A.

quote-left My Experience so far in climb teams ministry has been wonderful. I can't think Jason and the team enough for allowing me into the team.  I've been able to achieve a much longer period of sobriety than I have been able to for years.  I am currently just shy of 9 months sobriety from porn.  Without the climb team I was white knuckling it and constantly failing over and over again.  I would get a few days to about a month and then would slip up again.  I feel more confident and I am moving in a better direction now.  I'll continue with the team as I need the accountability from the guys and it helps me to feel like I'm in the game as opposed to just being on the sidelines.  Thank you Jason! - D.

quote-left I’ve been in and out of recovery for a few years.  Sexual sins have persisted in my life for nearly 3 decades.  I’m thankful that Jason George through his ministry established an effective program based on a deep understanding of the battle that many men face, but are too afraid to admit.  But there comes a time for each of us that we must admit we cannot overcome this addiction solo. Sometimes the only way to climb out of the bottom is to start looking up!  Since I’ve been in climb teams, I’ve developed relationships with people that both encourage and push me upward.  With a foundation of biblical principles,  climb teams provide the necessary tools and community to break free from the strongholds and idols that hold us back from the abundant life that God has for us all.  I’m truly thankful for this ministry. - A.

lock  Membership Commitments

In order to be part of a Climb Team and gain the most benefit from it, there are a few things that will need to be understood and committed to ...

1.  Be present and on-time at our weekly meetings for 60-70 minutes. Clock

There will be part of you that wants be present at the weekly meetings, but another part of you that will not. Make the commitment to be present and on-time regardless of how you're feeling. This not only benefits you, but also the rest of your team. These weekly meetings must be a top priority in your life.

2.  Judgment and condemnation of yourself or your team members is unacceptable. Loudly Crying Face

You need to understand that team members will be sharing the deepest and darkest parts of themselves, and you're not there to "fix" anyone. You're there to listen, pray, and encourage. Slips and falls will happen along the way. That's just part of climbing, but the good news is that your team's got your back. They will help you through your struggles and failures.

3.  You will need to pay attention and really listen when team members are sharing (and don't interrupt or distract them). Assistive Listening Systems

With Zoom Meetings, it's tempting to do other things while team members are sharing, but don't be that guy. It's disrespectful and unloving. You want others to pay attention to you when it's your turn to share, so do the same for them ... "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." - Jesus

We come to the meetings to learn from one another, not just talk about ourselves and then mentally "check out" while other's are sharing. Really listen to your team members ... learn from them ... and pray for them. They will do the same for you. This is a HUGE part of recovery.

Also, offering encouragement to other members is needed and appreciated, but you're not there to "teach" or "correct" them.

4.  What is discussed within the team is sacred and private and must not be shared outside of the team under any circumstances. 100% confidentiality is expected. Exclamation Triangle

Your Climb Team is a safe place to be completely honest/real. Do not even talk to your wife about what other team members share. Also, with our online group chat (via the Signal App) ... you must password protect it or use facial recognition so that no one can pick up your phone and see what you or others have shared.

If you break confidentiality, you will be removed from the team.

5.  Be careful of the words you use when you're sharing. bullhorn

As you're sharing details about your life, you need to realize that explicit details can have a negative impact upon your team. Using a simple check-in like ... "This past week I looked at porn on my phone and masturbated." ... is a good and needed report that doesn't cause minds to wander to dark and dangerous places.

6.  Be honest. Be real. Users

You're wasting your time (and your team's time) if you're not going to be honest/real about what's really going on with your life. If you fell ... just admit it. We've all been there (many times). We got your back! The Climb Team Meeting is a safe NO-B.S.-ZONE!!! All progress begins and continues by telling the truth.

7. Our ministry theologically aligns with The Gospel Coalition. Do not try to influence/teach differing views to team members. Bible

This doesn't mean you have to agree with every theological view that we hold to, but we are not here to teach/debate various theological views.

8. Do not post damaging or harassing comments on social media or personal blogs about our ministry or team members. Laptop

If you have a problem with a leader or team member, then we handle it internally. If the problem cannot be resolved, then we will graciously/lovingly part ways.

9. Actually pray for your team members throughout your week. Praying Hands

This is a huge part of healing/growth/transformation. Never underestimate the power of praying for one another.

10. Stay in touch with team members throughout your week using the Signal App. Daily check-ins are crucial. People Arrows

Showing up for your weekly meeting is not enough. We need constant connection with our team members to heal, grow, transform, and overcome. That means ... if you're struggling/triggered, then you reach out and let your team know. That also means ... if team member reaches out because he's struggling, then you respond to him with love, encouragement, and prayer.

It's also important to share random life stuff with your team just to get to know each other better. We don't just need to talk about our struggles/recovery. For instances, if you go fishing or hiking, post a pic and tell us about it. If you achieve a fitness goal, share it. If you come across a motivational quote or meme, share it. If you have some (appropriate) humor/jokes, share it.

11. Diligently work through the biblical steps of repentance/recovery that you learn from your team leader, teammates, and training materials (The Game Plan by Joe Dallas and Clean by Dr. Doug Weiss). Hiking

Your Climb Team is not a mere confession booth. Continual honesty, commitment, work, sacrifice, and perseverance are required for you to heal, grow, transform, and overcome. You have to be willing make some hard changes in your life and do some uncomfortable things for this to work.

This "climb" or "journey" that we are on is not about perfection, but about process and progress. It's okay to not be okay, but it's not okay to stay that way. We work together to heal, grow, transform, and overcome. Again, you have to be willing to make some hard changes in your life and do some uncomfortable things for this to work. To attain what you've never had, you have to be willing to do what you've never done!

Question Circle FAQ

What are the benefits of joining a Climb Team?

rightarrowThe main benefit is that you no longer have to try and climb solo. When you join a Climb Team, you enter into a community of like-minded brothers in Christ who have your back whether you're failing or succeeding. You have a safe place to be completely real about who you are, what you've done, and what you're going through. You are accepted just the way you are, but also challenged to grow and become better. The team learns and grows together ... "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." - Proverbs 27:17

Will the conversation be topic driven or will we study God's Word together?

rightarrowThe main topic of our conversation during our weekly meetings is YOU! Climb Team Meetings are not a bible study, but we do begin each meeting with prayer and a short reading/encouragement from God's Word. The Bible guides everything that we are doing with Climb Teams. Each week Team Members answer specific check-in questions about their life and how their week went. They are also prayed for and given some words of guidance, support, and encouragement. The guys in the group are expected to read/study God's Word on their own. The team also works through two books: The Game Plan by Counselor Joe Dallas and CLEAN by Dr. Doug Weiss. They talk about what they're learning and the team leader is there to answer any questions.

What if I'm already involved in a men's group?

rightarrowIf you’re already in a weekly men’s group that's asking you the hard questions about your personal life ... keeping in contact with you throughout the week ... holding you accountable ... encouraging and equipping you to become better in body, mind, and spirit ... praying for you ... and giving you solid biblical guidance ... then stick with it. You don't need a Climb Team because you already have one.

Why should I join a Climb Team if I already have Covenant Eyes?

rightarrowCovenant Eyes is an awesome tool that we use and highly recommend, but it's doesn't provide everything you need to heal, grow, and succeed in life and relationships. Christian men need to be connected and climbing with other like-minded brothers. They need to be able to talk, listen, learn, pray, and support one another through the good, the bad, and the ugly. They desperately need weekly community, support, and accountability that is biblically based. This is what's holding back most Christian men from experiencing God's best.

How do you define "sexual sobriety"?

rightarrowOur definition of sexual sobriety is abstaining from pornography or immoral sexual contact with another person. This includes the use of internet porn or pornographic products of any sort, phone sex, erotic internet chat rooms, cybersex, sexting, sending or receiving erotic pics, strip clubs, prostitutes, erotic massages, premarital sex, or adultery. Complete sexual purity is the ideal we strive toward, but sexual sobriety is the standard we require of ourselves.

How do you define "adultery" and "fornication"?

rightarrowAnything you can't do with another person in front of your wife is adultery and anything you can't do with your girlfriend in the middle of church is off-limits. That about sums it up.

Why does it cost money if this is a non-profit ministry?

rightarrowIt costs quite a bit of money to operate a non-profit ministry. We simply can't afford to do what we do for free. Your team leader puts a good amount of time and effort into preparing and leading the meetings, staying in contact with team members, and sending out helpful resources. There's also the cost of sobriety carabiners, website, zoom, and other member resources/benefits.

You should view your membership fee as an investment in yourself, your marriage, your family, and your ministry. $40 per month breaks down to just $10 per week. Most guys easily spend more than that on one lunch at Chick-fil-a or Chipotle. Like it or not, our spending reveals what's most important to us.

We do offer some financial assistance to eligible applicants.
