We so appreciate the prayers and support we receive from friends both near and far. Here are a few updates and a few things coming up in the next several months. Will you pray with us for these things?
Thursday Night Support Group
Since we have been able to meet in person again, we have adopted a new system of meeting via Zoom only on the 2nd and 4th (and 5th) Thursdays of each month. We meet in person on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and allow those who aren’t able to meet in person to Zoom in for the talk. This seems to be working well for us, and we love having folks who live outside of the Denver Metro are to join us. We’ve been having between 25-30 participants each week. In March, over 54 people came at least once during the month.
We will wrap up our current set of the ReSOULutions Series this month, where we are talking about Ways of Healthy Relating. That 4 month cycle resumes in September with “Seeking True Connection: Addictions are False Solutions.” You can learn more about our ReSOULutions Series by clicking here. We will continue to meet in June and July with a variety of topics about sexuality and relationships. We will not meet on Thursday nights in the month of August.
We are available to walk alongside people who need some individual time to process issues that have come up in their lives. There are a variety of ways we can meet… via phone, Zoom, or in-person. Please let us know if you would like to check-in. We are available via phone or Zoom for those outside of the Denver Metro Area, as well as those within.
We would love to come and speak at your church! Please let us know if there is a way we can get connected there. Here are a few things coming up on our speaking schedule:
- June 9-12: Scott will be joining our friend Shannon Rants for some workshops at the Northstar Conference. They will be talking about gender and sexuality.
- June 21-24: Scott will be traveling to Detroit for the Evangelical Presbyterian Church General Assembly to teach a workshop about better understanding transgender people and how to minister to this community.
- July 13: The WGA staff will be working with a local group of pastors to train and equip them to work with those in the LGBTQ+ community.
- October: Some of the staff will be traveling to Kansas to work with a church about ministry in the LGBTQ+ community.
All of us at WGA continue to be grateful that we get to be part of such an important ministry. Please know that we are here and available to you!
In the spring of 1995, the conflict Roger felt between his faith and his sexuality, as well as an addiction to pornography, led him to WGA. His personal journey has provided him unique insights into sexuality and the pain of adversity, which he shares through his testimony, facilitation of small groups, writing and public speaking.
Roger began working with WGA in October of 1996 as the Assistant office Manager. Since that time, he has worn many hats and served in several different positions, including Assistant Program Director and Operations Director. In April of 2007, Roger assumed the position of Executive Director.
Roger attended West Texas A&M University, where he studied Music Business. Much of his training has been “on the job,” where he was mentored by the ministry’s Founder, Mary Heathman, and the Program Director, Scott Kingry. He holds a BA from West Texas A&M University.
Roger, his wife Jill, and their daughter Julia and son William, attend Celebration Community Church where Jill serves as Senior Pastor.
