Meet the Director

Bill Harnist has been the Executive Director of Purity Network since January, 2012. He graduated from Crown College in St. Bonifacius, MN in 2011 with A Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Counseling. Bill has been attending and leading support/healing groups for fifteen years.

In 2006, along with another man in his church, he started a sexual addiction support group for men. From that beginning with five people, the group has grown to more than thirty men meeting on a weekly basis, with seven leaders now facilitating four small groups.

“I believe that the key element in a person’s healing journey out of sexual addiction into sexual purity is through the group experience. Along with professional counseling and meeting with another Godly man, and a pastor from my church, with the help of other men I was able to break free from the chains of sexual bondage. James 5:16 (NIV) speaks directly to those of us dealing with this issue: ‘Therefore confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.’”
