The history of Exodus starts the same way. In the beginning God reached out to homosexual men and women on each continent around the world. Reaching out to them with grace and truth, God brought hope, healing and transformation to men and women affected by homosexuality. Then He called them to let Him work through them to bring His grace and truth to others around the world.
But God was not just working in the USA, He was leading people into ministry around the world. Sister organizations such as Exodus Europe and Exodus Asia Pacific were started by people like Johan van de Sluis and Peter Lane. Increasingly these people drew together. In 1995 they formed an international coalition of ministries - Exodus Global Alliance.
Exodus Global Alliance is reaching people around the world with the message that change is possible for the homosexual through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. We believe freedom is increasingly experienced as the former homosexual matures through on-going submission to the Lordship of Christ and His church.
"For decades ex-gay ministry has been centered around the USA. Now we see this kind of ministry reaching around the world. The gaps are being filled in. Exodus Global Alliance is a right time, right place ministry that focuses on equipping these rapidly developing regions." Frank Worthen.
Exodus identifies with men and women who are affected by homosexuality partly because many of us in Exodus were once homosexual men and women ourselves. We know what it feels like. We've experienced the hurt and rejection. We also know what it is like to want a relationship with God and wonder if there is any hope for us. We know from personal experience what it means to ask if change is possible. And we know from personal experience how change happens and what change looks like.
Now that you know something about how Exodus got started, we invite you to read about how Exodus grew to become a global ministry - our history.
