Welcome to the online home of New Direction Ministries. No matter your reason for visiting-whether you’ve got questions about your own sexuality, you’re trying to be a safe person for a friend, are a part of a community wanting to be a safe space for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people, or if you’re wanting to support us financially – thank you for taking the time to visit and find out more about us.
Faithfully unpacking the questions and sentiments that surround sexuality, in regards to scripture and culture, is of vital importance for the local church. New Direction has not only done excellent work in resourcing learners, but they’ve also become the ‘go-to’ connection point for leaders and ministries who seek to journey with the LGBT community in the way of Jesus.
On behalf of our entire pastoral staff I wanted to take a moment to say a HUGE thank you for the excellent job you did for us today. Your presentation was sensitive, compassionate, ‘spacious’ and honest. It helped us enormously as we begin to process the challenge of caring and loving those around us, especially those that seem so different from us.
New Direction Ministries, many years ago, was one of those Christian organizations that gay, lesbian, and transgender people loved to hate. In the intervening years, it has become one of the few true bridge builders between evangelical Christians and the gay community.
