Ted Shimer is the Field Staff Director for Student Mobilization (StuMo) and has been ministering to college students for the past 30 years. It was the epidemic-level of porn addiction on the college campus, and the lack of effective, affordable and biblical recovery options that led Ted to develop the online recovery program The Freedom Fight. He is also a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist candidate through IITAP, the organization of world-renown sex addiction authority Dr. Patrick Carnes. His team has participated in over a dozen porn and sex addiction recovery programs.
