"Let's remain faithful in praying for Dennis Jernigan today, as he begins filming new supplemental materials to add to Sing Over Me that are designed as a tool to help the church minister to those who are struggling. We will keep you posted on the progress of these exciting new materials!"
Dennis's response: " We are filming a video series directed at the church today regarding how to respond to the current culture regarding homosexuality and how to minister the love ...of Christ without compromising who we are. Huge task. We are already running into huge technical difficulties. No surprise there. Would you mind praying for us? We'll let you know when the video series and accompanying study materials are ready for public consumption. "

"May we never cease to share our stories of God's gracious deliverance from our sinful past. "I will not be silent as long as one person tells me ... I need hope."
Since 1988, I've been publicly sharing the story of how I walked out of a perceived homosexual identity.
Why? Because I remember being a boy wondering if freedom was possible. The church didn't have answers. The world didn't have answers. The gay community just tried to make me give up and accept this as my innate identity. Yet, something deep inside of me kept knocking at the door of my heart saying, "There must be more. This cannot be your ultimate destiny and identity."
When God met me with the Truth of the transforming power of Jesus Christ, and I began what I call my incredible journey, I began to realize that I'd been lied to by the world and the philosophies of man. After seven years of freedom under my belt, the Lord asked me to begin publicly sharing my story because there were others out there who felt the same as I felt-that there must be more.
This book is for those who want to experience God in an intimate, life-changing way, regardless of whether or not they've ever struggled with unwanted same-sex attraction. This is my story, yet really it's the story of redemption found in knowing Jesus Christ intimately. --Dennis Jernigan
