Identify Ministries, Protect Kindergarten Project I run a redemptive Christian ministry for former LGBTQ individuals, impacted families, and community members in need of transformational discipleship and support. Two months ago, a new appointment popped up in my email inbox with the comment, “I am looking for support…” This appointment was not from a typical overcomer but instead from a local University Professor looking for Christian support following an incident in her child’s school over-sexualized books. In our appointment, this parent, Dr. Crystal Marull1, disclosed that she had filled ..read more

Attachment Theory and Childhood Wounds
Love & Culture
by The CHANGED Movement
2w ago
As Christians, we understand our need for a Lord and Savior with regard to sin, but I often wonder if we believe in the power of Jesus’ finished work on the cross to heal and restore our lives? In this post, we will explore attachment theory and childhood wounds from a Biblical perspective, drawing on the wisdom found in the Bible and the insights from others who write and speak about these topics.   “It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is n ..read more

Owning My Gender
Love & Culture
by The CHANGED Movement
1M ago
What does it mean to own something? Webster says – belonging or relating to oneself or itself; that which belongs to oneself. To possess; have. For me, to own something means it belongs to me. To have possession of or control over. To want to own something, you find value in it. So, what does it mean to own our gender? Let me see if I can explain. I had given the ownership of my gender identity over to a belief that being a woman was bad, being a woman meant I would be hated, and vulnerable.  These beliefs convinced me there was no value in being a woman ..read more

A Reason for Hope

To donate to the "Book Project” A few years ago, I was speaking at Youth with a Mission (YWAM) in Kona, Hawaii. I teach at an apologetics school there a week at a time, training young adults from around the world on how to explain the biblical worldview. Apologetics is about making a reasonable case for the Christian faith, including on issues such as sexuality and gender. Of course, there are some perks to teaching in Hawaii, not the least of which is that after I teach, I can enjoy the many warm beaches that we don’t have in Canada! And that’s where I found myself on the last day of that t ..read more

LGBTQIA+ and the Political Divide
Love & Culture
by The CHANGED Movement
2M ago
To many, the Sexual Revolution evokes nothing more than memories of the summer of love, the emergence of contraception, and “freedom” for sexual expression. But after years of warnings by Christian cultural commentators, the Sexual Revolution has overtaken the mainstream. More and more Christians are awakening to its harms but are unsure what to say and why. The LGBTQIA+ activist movement has become one of the most influential cultural forces today and has shown itself capable of redefining human identity and telos. How might a Christian response to its postmodern and Marxist ideological un ..read more

The Pressure to Conform
Love & Culture
by The CHANGED Movement
2M ago
One day you are sitting in church and your pastor allows a speaker from the LGBTQ community to mount the pulpit and promote an event that brings awareness to alternative sexual lifestyles. You listen attentively because you have been in the church for years and you trust the judgment of your pastor. The LGBTQ representative shares literature that clearly explains that children have the right to choose their gender and that God wants us all to live the life that makes us happy. As the representative speaks, you can hear “Amens” echoing from across the sanctuary. After the ..read more

“Are You Ready For This Mission Field?”

I recently had the opportunity to speak to a group of senior pastors from Oregon.  During this speaking engagement, the denomination's District Superintendent asked me questions and then discussed my answers with me while roughly 300 pastors listened in.  Most of the questions I had answered dozens of times before in other Q and A’s over the last decade of traveling and speaking; however, near the middle of our time together, my interviewer asked a question that no other pastor or leader had asked me in a setting like this before. “Drew, you have been ministering to this issue for al ..read more

Four New Books Dealing with Transgenderism
Love & Culture

Publications exposing transgender ideology and its capture of academics, medicine, the entertainment industry, government and the business sector are picking up steam. What we might term the breakout books, those that caught traction and burst onto the public square addressing and countering the whirlwind of transgenderism, included Ryan T. Anderson’s When Harry Became Sally (Encounter Books, 2018)—which was removed from Amazon, so it must have really hit the mark; Nancy Pearcey’s Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality (Baker Books, 2019); and Abigail Shrier’s Irre ..read more

"If it Makes You Happy"
Love & Culture

4M ago
Read more about Ken’s life with the Lord in his book The Journey Out: How I Followed Jesus Away From Gay Recently, I found myself singing along to legendary musician Sheryl Crow’s hit song: “If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad.” And, it got me to thinking… Today, in our plights to fulfill ourselves, find ourselves, or make ourselves happy, we do all kinds of things. Because we can. We turn to cat videos, the all-you-can-eat buffet, TikTok, online games, life coaches, self-help programs, YouTube and podcasts, music-on-demand, and TV and movies any place, any time. We can even filter o ..read more

F.L. Copeland’s suicide is a painful glimpse into the inner conflict of transgender identity
Love & Culture
by The CHANGED Movement
5M ago
The tragic death by suicide of Alabama mayor, business leader, and Baptist pastor, F.L. Copeland became a national focus recently when LGBTQ Nation, followed by Fox News, broke the story. Sadly, it is the perfect injustice to incite public outrage on many fronts: the complex tragedy of emotional distress among those who identify as transgender, the lived experience of the transgender subculture, and the intersection of these with Christianity. For many, the outrage is motivated by protecting and affirming those who identify as transgender. For others, there is anger at the perversion and lack ..read more
