Welcome to The Parents Group!

The Parents Group (TPG), a partner ministry with SBM Worldwide, was started in 2007 by Stephen & Irene Bennett. The formation of this amazing and unique community was to offer support and encouragement to parents and family members of LGBT men and women. TheParentsGroup.com is a private and secure online Christian community where parents and family members of LGBT men and women can connect with each other to receive and give encouragement and support.

In this safe and caring environment, you can:

  • Pray weekly with the TPG community through a secure, confidential teleconferencing prayer meeting

  • Share prayer requests, updates, and answers to prayer with the community

  • Participate in forum discussions on a wide variety of topics

  • Read informative articles and encouraging devotionals

  • Chat individually or in groups with other parents

  • “Do life together” every day with others who understand your unique challenges

What a blessed day it will be when your prodigal returns home! Won’t you join with others who also wait and pray for their prodigal’s return?

Please call the ministry directly to learn how you can become part of this loving, compassionate Community! You can call us Monday through Thursday, 10 am through 4 pm EST at 1-800-832-3623.
