New Direction team members consider it a privilege to connect one-on-one with LGBTQ+ Christians across Canada, as well as with their families, friends, and pastors.
Our focus is pastoral in nature and we primarily offer spiritual companionship on the journey. We will receive your story with the care and confidentiality it deserves, and will seek to respond by listening prayerfully, offering compassion and hope, and listen together to what the Holy Spirit is doing in your life. We will encourage you in clarifying your beliefs, values and goals and support you in living consistently with them. When appropriate, we may offer wisdom from our own experiences, or connect you with others in our community who have walked similar paths.
If you live within driving distance of the greater Toronto area, we are happy to schedule a time and appropriate location to meet. If you live further away, we can make use of phone calls, Skype, email, or other social networking tools to communicate.
In an effort to make this interpersonal ministry accessible, we do not charge fees, but we always welcome donations to New Direction that allow us to continue on in our work.
Note: We maintain a current referral list of trusted professional therapists, and can offer assistance in finding a suitable therapist if needed.
