What does MST stand for?
The MST Project is a ministry that seeks to mentor men into a pursuit of sexual purity and greater wholeness. MST stands for “Men and the Sex Trade”. The sex trade does not only exist within a red-light district but permeates several other aspects of society including pornography, advertisement, media etc. We are constantly bombarded by an over-sexualized culture and as a ministry, we seek to reach out to men not just in the context of a red-light district, but men dealing with pornography, sexual sin, lust and other heart issues.
How do you care for men?
We are available to listen and share our personal stories and Biblical truth with men wanting to change patterns in their life. We strive to be deeply personal and personally relevant in our ministry to men.
What does The MST Project do?
We focus on three aspects of ministry; we reach out to men who visit red-light districts, we mentor men through our Pathway to Purity book, and we work with men in the church through Real Men Pursuing Purity events and mentorship groups. In all areas of ministry we seek to provide lifelong mentorship to men. Please refer to each specific ministry page for a more complete vision of each aspect.
How can I get involved?
Are you a religious organization?
Our staff and volunteers have a personal relationship with Christ and believe in the timeless truth of God’s Word. We believe, however, that there is a difference between a set of religious rules and our own personal relationship with Christ. Many times in the Scriptures we see Christ’s reaction of disapproval toward the religious leaders of the day. (John 2; Matthew 23). We do not seek to force “religion” down one’s throat, but we do desire to share the hope, fulfillment, transformation and healing that can be found in the love of God and in personal relationship with Christ.
How do you view the men who visit red-light districts?
We believe that God’s grace and love is for all men, in all places, and at all times. Some men choose to engage in sexual activity as a means to cope with issues similar to how others may use alcohol, drugs, food etc. We view men as fathers, brothers, and sons whom God cares about deeply. (Genesis 2:7, 2 Peter 3:9).
Where is The MST Project located?
The MST Project is based solely in Bangkok, Thailand. However, Pathway to Purity and Real Men Pursuing Purity staff are based in different locations.
