Regeneration helps those seeking wholeness in the areas of intimacy, identity, and desire by inviting them into community marked by the truth and grace of Jesus. Very often, relational, sexual, and emotional struggles become more difficult to work through because of experiences that have subtly shaped our sense of identity and hinder healthy intimacy with God and others.
God created relationships, sex and sexuality to be good and powerful parts of our lives. But just as these can bring life and love, used wrongly they can also bring great pain, confusion, and destruction. People participating in Regeneration are able to rely on Jesus as, together, we grow closer to Him who brings deep restoration and emotional and spiritual belonging.
The staff and leaders of Regeneration understand the pain and confusion of struggling with sexual sin, relational brokenness, and emotional unhealthiness. We provide an environment of support and encouragement for those who want to change.
We believe growth occurs as we deepen our intimacy with God, experience healing of past wounds, cultivate healthy relationships, and learn to walk in our true identity in Christ.
Regeneration works alongside the local church to provide a Christ-centered ministry that is compassionate and consistent with Scripture and historic Christian teaching.
Confidentiality is faithfully respected in all of Regeneration’s services, in accordance with Regeneration’s Confidentiality Policy.

“In a culture (both outside and inside the church) deeply confused about the meaning of human sexuality, Regeneration offers both an orthodox Christian understanding and Christ-like care for those who hunger and thirst for more. Erotic longing in its God-given design is meant to launch us heavenward, but in a fallen world we are continually tempted to direct it toward things that cannot satisfy, leaving us lonely, heartbroken, and addicted. Across denominational lines, the team at Regen graciously leads people into deeper union with Christ who alone has the power to redirect desire toward the Love that satisfies.”

“I have been privileged to be associated with Regeneration for over a decade. It is a ministry for which I have the deepest appreciation and respect. It is led by people who are solid in their walk with Christ, grounded in the scriptures, and loving and compassionate in their approach to those seeking their help. Jesus promised that signs and wonders would accompany the faithful proclamation of His Word. That happens on a daily basis with Regeneration, as broken lives are made whole through the healing power of the Gospel. ”

Past Rector at Church of the Apostles, Fairfax, VA
“For decades Regeneration Ministries has provided direction and encouragement to countless people, operating with high integrity and solid, Biblically based values. I’ve been privileged to know and work alongside them since 1987, and I continue to regard them with deep respect and gratitude. The church and the culture are both far better off because of Regeneration.”

“I can’t think of many things that impact individuals, families, and our culture more than sexual desire. It’s a source of life and great joy, but also a source of great pain, confusion and enslavement. Parents feel at a loss, incompetent, or fearful when speaking with their kids about sex, and the avalanche of technology makes matters even more difficult. But the price tag is too high and the heartache to significant to ignore. Regeneration is a ministry that has dared to face this head on. They continue to develop new ways of helping men, women, parents, and families better navigate the cultural landscape, knowing we’ve been created to flourish in this area of life instead of being crushed by it. To say that Regeneration has been a valuable resource to me in my work with men and families would be an understatement. This ministry has been a source of hope, training and inspiration.”

“I love Regeneration! Having been surrounded by ‘sexual recovery’ ministries for the last 30 years, I can say without exaggeration that Regeneration embodies the best of what it takes to make the body of Christ a safe and powerful place for broken people. Any broken person. The gift of Regeneration lies in its nearly seamless approach to addressing the breadth of our sexual brokenness–be it victim or perpetrator, married or single, vulnerable to same or opposite gender idolatry–without sacrificing depth.
Jesus pulled up dividing walls within His one body and Regeneration follows faithfully in His footsteps. I love that one can come to Regeneration broken by any number of sins and leave much more whole as a result of the great cloud of diverse sinners that met him or her with mercy. Only Jesus can do that; Regeneration magnifies the miracle.”

“I have tremendous respect for Regeneration. I served on their board for 10 years, and I know this ministry inside and out. They have spiritual integrity. They’re biblical. And, they’re totally committed to helping men and women come out of homosexuality. If you’re looking for someone to support, you couldn’t find a more worthy ministry than Regeneration.”
J. Thomas Bisset
Past President, Peter & John Radio Fellowship, Baltimore, MD
“Christians need to help people who are fighting homosexuality and sexual addiction in their lives… it’s about helping people trapped in a cycle of sexual dysfunction. People are hurting… and instead of helping them we are papering over their problems… contact Regeneration to see how your church can be equipped to help people break free from these cycles of sin and despair.”
Past President of Breakpoint & Prison Fellowship Ministries
“I have known well the ministry of Regeneration for decades and can offer only my strongestwords of endorsement. Every sort of person – man, woman, single, married, heterosexual, homosexual or sexually confused – is welcomed with God’s grace. The Regeneration team has a huge heart for their ministry to people who are hurting in any number of ways. They are wise, loving, effective, and thorough. It is a life-transforming ministry.”
