Greetings from the Exodus International office! Thank you for your interest in becoming a part of the Exodus Church Association. We would be delighted to receive your church as an applicant.
After 35 years of reaching out to individuals and families affected by homosexuality, Exodus recognizes the crucial need to work more closely with churches. Alan Chambers, the President of Exodus, commented, “Exodus is a Kingdom ministry—it is no longer a ministry outside of the church, but a ministry of the church.”
Through our Church Association we hope to do three things. One, we hope to exhort the church at-large to stand confidently and boldly on the truth of scripture with regard to homosexuality. Two, we hope to equip churches to minister to the individuals within their own congregation who are struggling with unwanted homosexuality, as well as the family members of a gay loved one. And three, we hope to create a nationwide referral list of churches, including your church, for those who are searching for a church family that will walk alongside them in their journey. For men and women overcoming homosexuality, a pivotal part of healing and restoration is the need to be included in—and be a part of—the body of Christ. One woman overcoming lesbianism shared, “My experience of being welcomed, invited and embraced by the men, women, and families in my church made all the difference in the world as I sought to overcome my sexual brokenness and sin.”
Included on this site are a Letter for Potential ECA Pastors, Exodus’ Doctrinal and Policy Statements, the Exodus Church Association Qualifications, an online Application Form, ECA FAQ’s and miscellaneous application information. Once you submit the application, it will be reviewed and, if all qualifications are met, your church will be listed as a part of the Exodus Church Association on the Exodus website and will be a part of our in-house referral reports.
If you have any questions regarding the Exodus Church Association, please do not hesitate to contact us at 407.599.6872.
Again, thank you for your interest in this new outreach of Exodus. We look forward to co-laboring with you in this endeavor and to impacting lives for Christ.
Sincerely in Christ,
Sr. Director of Church Equipping & Student Ministries
