Here at Waymaker.Church, we strive to be a community that pursues holy sexuality. We are passionate about building bridges and removing obstacles for people to experience freedom. This is why we partner with Proven Ministries, who has a passion to see people set free from their sin and passionately pursue Jesus in a personal relationship with Him.

Joel and Theresa Hesch


Joel and Theresa Hesch have been married for over 30 years and are passionate about helping men and women find victory over sexually addictive behaviors, whether it is lust, pornography, or affairs. But life and marriage has not always been easy. Joel founded Proven Ministries 20 years ago after breaking free from sexual addiction that nearly destroyed his life and marriage. Tens-of-thousands of people have used his studies to experience sexual integrity. Theresa uses her counseling training and life experiences as the Counseling Director at Waymaker and oversees recovery groups and lay counseling. Together, the Hesch’s use their own struggles and victories to guide others to the healing power of Christ in the midst of muddy waters.
More details about Joel’s redemptive story can be found on the Proven Men website.
