Seeking Truth on Sexuality
While we live in a sexually saturated society, what most people know about sexuality is a mix of mis-truths and inaccurate information. Unfortunately, this is no less true for many professionals who work with sexual issues.
Finding accurate information can be a daunting task – even in an information rich culture. There are over 70 professional journals on sexual related topics, how can we keep up with what is current? How can we know that what we are reading is accurate?
The overwhelming nature of the task tends to regulate staying current to “I’ll do it later” status — meaning we don’t get to it.
In areas we care about, like our profession, this is unacceptable to us.

Rev. Michael R Sytsma, PhD, LPC, CST, CPCS
Dr. Sytsma’s passion for knowledge and truth has been present from childhood. Educationally he has been trained as a pastor, substance abuse counselor, community counselor, sex addictions counselor, marriage and family therapist, and sex therapist. He has been a professor at Richmont Graduate University (formerly psychological studies Institute) since the early 90s. and an adjunct professor at Asbury Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary. He has been a guest professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, Denver Seminary, Trevecca, Rosemead, and Talbot.
Dr. Sytsma left the traditional staff pastor role in 1998 and started Building Intimate Marriages, Inc., a non-profit marriage ministry where he pastors couples guiding them toward discipleship in their marriages. He meets with about 20 couples a week and provides seminars, workshops and retreats.
In 2000, Dr. Sytsma partnered with Douglas Rosenau, Debra Taylor, and Christopher McCluskey to develop Sexual Wholeness, Inc. As part of his role in Sexual Wholeness, Dr. Sytsma took 6 months to research and write the Institute for Sexual Wholeness program – a graduate program in teaching sex therapy to Christian counselors and therapists. He resigned as Academic Dean for the program in 2015 but continues to serve as one of the core faculty for the program.
