Ministry Announcement

With the recent release of the movie Boy Erased, the controversy regarding reparative or conversation therapy as well as past programs of Love in Action have resurfaced. The movie is based upon a book written by someone who briefly attended one of the Love in Action programs in 2004.

The leadership of Restoration Path would like to respond in two ways. One, the programs utilized in 2004 have been closed for many years now. The change in the name of the ministry as well as the programs were made to reflect a different direction and approach. Secondly, we are a Christian discipleship ministry and do not provide therapy so we would never be involved in any type of reparative or conversation treatment. Lastly, I wanted to share our thoughts regarding any ministry approach that promotes shaming, coercion or disrespect.

Restoration Path is a Christian discipleship ministry that deals with the effects of sexual
and relational brokenness and sin in any and all forms of human sexuality. We treat each person we serve with love, understanding, grace, and respect. We stand against and reject any message or ministry that would shame, abuse, mistreat, or degrade any individual. Our Savior is the Good Shepherd who calls his children through His Unfailing Love and never drives them away with rejection, anger and humiliation. Romans 8:38-39.
