Exchange Ministries is a non-profit parachurch ministry dedicated to loving, equipping and investing in people to live healthy and whole lives in Christ so we can love others well. Jesus Christ deeply loves the sexually broken and provides hope and transformation wo all who seek him. God made it clear that Exchange Ministries has been called to action. He charged us to love, disciple and send out because the harvest is plenty but the workers are few (Matthew 9:37).
Exchange Ministries believes that sexual immorality is not limited to homosexual practice, but has multiple representations in the heterosexual sphere that distort God’s design and purpose for our sexuality. As the body of Christ becomes healthy and whole by His Word and the power of the love of God, we will proclaim and demonstrate the love of God. By the power of God and the gift of His good grace, Exchange Ministries, its participants, leaders, and partnering donors will impact the world for good by bringing wholeness and healing into a lost and hurting world.
Exchange Ministries exists to provide inspiration, hope and refuge to those seeking to re-align their sexual identity with their identity in Christ through equipping and supporting the church, individuals and families of LGBTQ+ identified loved ones.
For the people connected to Exchange to be able to grow in relationship with God, experience the fullness of His Spirit and extend themselves outward to love a broken world with the message of the full gospel of Christ.
