We’re people. Men and women. Some of us are married. Some are single. Some of us have struggled with sexual sin. Some of us have experienced divorce. Some of us have had same-sex attractions.
Some of us have treated others like objects and some of us have been treated like objects. Some of us were abused. All of us have sinned and been wounded by sin.
We’ve seen miracles and we yet wait for miracles. We’ve been healed and we’re yet healing. We’ve been freed from sin and we yet seek freedom from sin.
But what binds us together most is we are all people who have experienced the deep, transforming love of Jesus Christ, who are finding our truest identities in Him, and who are learning to love like He does.
We’d be honored for you to join us.
Regeneration equips men, women, and families to learn and live God’s good, holy, and beautiful design for sexuality.
We do this in partnership with the local church through helping people deepen their union with Jesus Christ, grow in relational wholeness, heal from brokenness, and walk in sexual integrity.
To that end, we provide one-to-one spiritual coaching and healing prayer, programs and support groups, conferences and events, trainings, and online and written resources.
