Personal Journey


In 1996, Drew surrendered his broken sexuality to the Lordship of Christ, leaving behind a homosexual relationship for the promise of scripture that whoever would  seek to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:25.  Drew chose to trust Christ with his future, believing  that the Word of God was trustworthy, and that Christ would be faithful to give him a life worth living outside of a homosexual identity or relationship.  This surrender began a process of transformation and healing  confronting the issues of same sex attraction and overall relational dysfunction in his life.

Life Mission


With the increase in cultural and theological shifts regarding Gods transformative power, Drew's ministry is to be a redemptive voice of truth to the body of Christ.   Drew’s life and testimony stand in stark contrast to the current cultural narrative about homosexuality, demonstrating instead, what Christ can do for a sexually broken life submitted to His Lordship.
