Ben Sledge is a combat veteran with a powerful testimony. During his time in the United States Army, he saw action in both Afghanistan and Iraq and is the recipient of the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and two Army Commendation Medals for his actions while overseas. It was during his time in the military he went from occasional porn user to full-blown addict, viewing it upward of 5 to 7 times an evening. After his last deployment and a failed marriage, Ben found himself sleeping on his friend’s couch and battling his addictions to alcohol, porn, women, and suffering from PTSD. Desperate to cure his depression, his atheist friend took him to a church in Austin, TX where he found Jesus, life, counselling, and a group of men that took an uncanny interest in loving him. Today he is a licensed pastor at a church in Texas and the Executive Director of HeartSupport—a non-profit dedicated toward mental health and addiction recovery. A gifted communicator, Ben is a top author on Medium.com and professional writer. He frequently travels around the United States educating churches and businesses ranging from the Joint Special Operations Command to CRU.
Ben Sledge is available to lead men’s events, custom events, and Sunday morning services as well as a lead speaker for Porn & Pancakes events.
