A Testimony of Prayer and of God's Grace



Happy belated 21st birthday to me! Through the power of prayer and the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I was reborn into the kingdom of God in 1996. “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23 NIV). In January of that year, my former partner died of HIV/AIDS. That occurrence was a milestone in my life. It jolted me into a time to reflect on my life and realize that I was truly sick and tired of the homosexual lifestyle.

The Hope for Wholeness Family



In July we took seven individuals to the annual Hope for Wholeness Conference at Ridgecrest, NC.  Though this conference is a small conference at this point, my hope is it will grow.  One of the most important dynamics of this conference is that it provides an experience to help those of us who have been impacted by same-sex attractions to know that we are not alone . . . that we have a family of many others who are experiencing much of the same dynamics that we are.  I love hearing the stories of individuals, moms and dads, Christian leaders, and others who simply have a heart for all people . . . including gay people.

A Glimpse in the Life of a Gay Man



I must confess that I sometimes wonder if much of the Church even really cares.

And yet many Christians rarely even think about what our participants face every day. Let me share a little of what many of us experience regularly.

A Story of Failure, Confession, and Repentance



From the very first time I heard Jeremy Camp’s song Slow Fade, I knew it was one hundred percent true. At the same time, in the back of my mind, deep down, I also thought, “That will never happen to me; I am too aware, too present.” As cliché as it sounds, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The song’s chorus goes like this:

Foundational Truth of Sight Ministry: The Exchanged Life



Each of us were born dead and we inherited this condition from Adam.  We call this the “sin nature” . . . “being in Adam” and it is a result of the Fall . . . Original Sin (Genesis 3).  As a result all humanity was separated from GOD and cut off from His acceptance.  And as a result of the Fall every person is in need of redemption . . . salvation . . . being restored to a relationship with GOD as He intended from the very beginning of time.
