Partnering with Parents to Influence Their Child’s God-given Destiny

We believe transformation matters and will happen through thriving
families that reflect God’s heart. In these challenging times, it has become increasingly difficult to raise a healthy family. We have a passion to equip parents with tools, resources, and guidance to have a positive emotional connection with their children, to effectively engage with their children about God’s design for healthy sexuality, and guide them in their God-given purpose.

Upcoming Events


The prevalence is disturbing. It may surprise you, if not shock you.

At an Explicit youth event, we found that 30-40% of the girls were sexually abused. Two local pastors at different churches discovered at their respective men’s retreats that 80% of the men had experienced sexual abuse.

As concerned leaders, we must be equipped to create safe places in our communities and churches where people who are secretly struggling in shame can experience God’s compassion and begin their healing.

We urge you to forge the courage to hear the truth about the effect that sex abuse has on individuals, marriages and families, and break the silence to call forth the courage to heal!

Single Life Workshop

of Nothing Hidden Ministries from Bethel Church in Redding, California

For singles ages 18-70!  Single Life Workshop is a ministry out of Bethel Church in Redding California and it has literally helped thousands of people from around the world!


At the core of who we are, we have been designed with a desire for relationship – to experience intimacy and connection and to know others and be known ourselves.  Yet many are left not knowing how to create this type of deep connection.  SIngle Life Workshop helps individuals build genuine and meaningful relationships with others that actually satisfies our natural longing to feel truly connected.

In this workshop, singles will:

1)Discover how to allow yourself to be fully known, seen and loved in your relationships.

2)Practice applying simple and powerful tools that will create deeper connection in your communication and interaction with others.

3)Learn how to fully embrace your sexuality as the gift from God that it is while you’re single.

Don’t miss out on the significant amounts of joy, pleasure, freedom and fun that God desires for us to experience through relationships.  By investing the time and learning how to do relationships well, you are setting up the foundation for a more fulfilling life.

Loving In Grace and Truth

Back by popular demand, we are offering an afternoon workshop to equip and bring understanding in grace and biblical truth in approaching LGBT issues. With rave reviews, John Allison and Eddie Sariol equipped approximately 120 pastors and leaders in Honolulu in 2015. Both John and Eddie have ministered internationally with our Explicit Team on these topics; John on our Singapore trip in May and Eddie on our Philippines trip in June. They bring clarity with compassion to these sensitive issues. I encourage you to come and be blessed by the gold in these two wonderful men of God!
