Deep Waters is a Christian ministry that seeks to engage with those in the church who experience same-sex attraction or within the LGBTQ+ community, as well as inform those who want to learn more about the subject.
We have a desire to see the Church approach this subject compassionately with great courage and hope to journey with churches and ministries on developing their approach. Deep Waters seeks to encourage dialogue and further understanding on the subject of gender, sexuality, and identity within the church, from a Christian, Biblical faith perspective.
We run free small group cohorts for those who experience same-sex attraction, those in the LGBTQ+ community, and also for friends and families who are interested to learn more. We investigate in our 12 week program the topic of gender, sexuality, and identity through the Scriptures, and develop a transparent and accountable community of fellowship.

What began as one man’s journey, has now become a vision for this ministry to become a tool and a resource for the Church and the LGBTQ+ community.
We’ve identified certain core values that lie at the heart of Deep Waters:
- We believe in the authority of the Scriptures
- We value discipleship
- We value community
- We believe in empowering the Church
- We value humility
To provide an open and loving environment where Christians who experience same-sex attraction and those in the LGBTQ+ community can investigate together what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
We also seek to equip the Church to compassionately and courageously engage with people who experience same-sex attraction and people in the LGBTQ+ community.
