Hope for Wholeness Network Referrals have a number of benefits being a part of HFWN. One of these is posting their blogs and testimonies on the HFW website, with links back to their own websites. We encourage Referrals to write or vlog on current relevant topics around the issue of homosexuality and the Christian walk. Not everything has to be authored on homosexuality, but should be useful to the HFW follower.

Persevering to Honor Him

Persevering to Honor Him By McKrae Game This past month has honestly been tough for many of us in ministry to those affected by homosexuality. It’s always a struggle for us when we have participants and colleagues that have decided to change their position on the issue of homosexuality. That seems to be happening more now than ever. This is very discouraging for those that looked to those individuals for leadership, since they now are in opposition to those that they once

The Meaning of Deliverance

The Meaning of Deliverance by Aqueena Smith, MA, LPC, R-DMT Refuge Ministry, Chicago IL Lately, there has been a lot of discussion about a man who claimed that he had been delivered from homosexuality. On a video that went viral, he emphatically stated, “I am not gay no more! I am delivered. I don’t like men no more. I like women! I won’t wear purses or put on make-up!” His claims have been met with much skepticism about the reality of his

These last 10 years have been some of the most amazing years of my life, filled with seasons of difficulty and prosperity, but tremendous blessing.

10 years…a reflection By Miranda Pettit

10 years...a reflection By Miranda Pettit Miranda is Hope for Wholeness Local Ministry's Women's Leader August 2014 marks 10 years since I walked away from lesbianism and truly devoted my life to Christ. I’ve learned so much these past 10 years and I want to reflect on 10 scriptures that have strengthened me & kept me grounded in my faith. I hope you find these as encouraging as they have been to me. John 8:36 – “If the Son has set you free,

Is the Culture War Over? By McKrae Game

This past week our phones started ringing from local media, wanting comments on the 4th District Court of Appeals' ruling that struck down Virginia’s ban on gay marriage. North Carolina and South Carolina have similar bans and are also in the 4th district. North Carolina’s Attorney General said that he will no longer defend their ban, while South Carolina has stated that they will. No doubt, this will go to the Supreme Court. I decided it would not be in our best interest to put our opinions

Same-Sex Attraction and the World By Jeanette Howard, Bethany Ministries, Sussex, England

Same-Sex Attraction and the World By Jeanette Howard, Bethany Ministries, Sussex, England This week has not been easy. In the light of the drama, tragedies and horrors that dominate our screens and saturate the airwaves, I have found it difficult to see the subject of who’s attracted to whom as little more than first world pettiness. The passengers of one airline lie undetected on the bottom of the ocean whilst human remains from another flight are scattered over the war torn Ukrainian

I Am Not A Gay Christian By Daniel Mingo, Abba’s Delight, Louisville, KY

I Am Not A Gay Christian By Daniel Mingo, Abba’s Delight, Louisville, KY There is a new brand of Christians which has made its way to the forefront of the great gay debate in the past few years. They call themselves gay Christians who have their own network called the Gay Christian Network. Quoting from their website, www.gaychristian.net, “Founded in 2001, the Gay Christian Network (GCN) is a nonprofit Christian ministry dedicated to building bridges and offering support for those caught in

A Year After Exodus By Interim Director

A Year After Exodus By McKrae Game What Have We Learned and Who Are We Going to Be? I remember the day I decided it was time to start a new network. It wasn’t out of retribution, but I simply felt it would be a service to other ministries around the country. Our board soon ratified the decision, and I sent the decision to Alan Chambers, then president of Exodus who replied, “This is an answer to prayer.” The following day He

With Hope Rising We ALL Rise By Tony Moore, Chairman of Hope for Wholeness Board

The second annual Hope for Wholeness Network conference seemed to have a central focus. It was not homosexuality, it was not struggle, and it was not change or freedom. It was Jesus. The conference theme, Hope Rising, took me back to Psalm 113:3. “From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.” I always feel a little closer to Heaven when I’m at Ridgecrest. The serene surroundings, the morning

Rising from the Ashes Rising from the Ashes Conference Recap. By Adam Woods OneByOne, Executive Director In a room full of ministry leaders Christine Sneeringer brought the crowd into fits of laughter as she shared about her journey coming out of homosexuality, “I wish I could tell you that my pastor waved a magic wand over me saying, ‘one, two, three, now you’re free, go be straight, date and mate!’ but that’s not what happened,” she said. Christine, founder of Worthy Creations was one of many church

Journey to Deep Connection Through Vulnerability – By Aqueena Smith

Hope for Wholeness Conference, Rising from the Ashes This past weekend, I and the ministry I am apart of called “Unchained” (for now) from my church went on a 4 day trip to a conference called “Hope for Wholeness.” We drove 14 hours through the incredible Smokey Mountains through Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, right into South Carolina. The trip into the city of Greenville was treacherous. We drove through a rainstorm almost the whole way there. While in good conversation, we ran
