Being transformed through Christ is a slow process. I know because I’ve been there. It’s sort of like being stuck in a traffic jam. At such times you wonder, “What is the problem? Why aren’t things moving on?” Yet there is a reason, even when you cannot see what it is.

If you are LGBTQ+ and have found or find yourself stuck in a life that just isn’t what you thought life would be like, maybe, just maybe God is wanting you to turn and ask Him… “What is the reason for the gridlock?”

I did.

And I learned that God had a better way to live life than I did. It took time but I finally learned and “I considered my ways and turned my steps to follow HIM. I learned to obey His commands” (Psalm 119:59-60) (Paraphrased)

This TRANSFORMING GRACE from God through Christ Jesus is for EVERYONE. I invite you to hear what we have to share. You are welcomed.

Church of the Apostles

Our guest speaker again this year for TRANSFORMING GRACE 2019 is Dee Barnes

Dee began walking out of same-sex attraction over 25 years ago and has ministered to the Body of Christ in the areas of sexuality and family for over 18 years. Dee is the founder of His Wonderful Works, Inc. The ministry was birthed in 2008 from the healing process she walked through beginning in 1991. Dee’s testimony and teaching have encouraged many congregations in the Truth of God’s transforming power. Her transparency opens the door for many to be set free from the shame that binds them and her teaching brings understanding to many issues including God’s plan for the family, healthy relationships, sexual sin, homosexuality, sexual abuse, and pornography addiction.

Dee served as coordinator for the healing discipleship program, Living Waters, by Desert Stream Ministries and has served as the Board Chair for Restored Hope Network. Dee is a featured Speaker at the University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii, for Youth with a Mission. Her ministry “His Wonderful Works” expanded in 2017 to include a new full-time Executive Director and Director of Parent/Prayer Support. Dee has had her testimony published in Transformation Magazine. She has also been featured on many T.V. and radio broadcasts as well as the Pure Passion Documentary, ‘How Do You Like Me Now”.
