In this time of history, when gender and sexual confusion is reaching new heights in all aspects of public and private life, our network of ministries stands on the beauty of God’s life-giving Word. We are not afraid to discuss with empathy and understanding issues central to the human soul--sexual and relational issues. Yet we hold up the power of God to redeem individuals and families from sin’s control, even in the area of homosexuality.
If you are a person who is attracted to others of the same gender, are confused about your gender identity, are impacted by another’s confusion as a parent, a child, a family member or pastor, leader or friend, Restored Hope is here to walk alongside you to help find the answers you seek. There is only One who has everything necessary for life and godliness--and He intends for you to have a future and hope.
We hope this site will provide you resources that will equip and encourage you.
