“I help people who want to change their sexuality,” he said. “Change is possible, and my three kids prove it. So does my happy wife.”
Melissa Coffey, a ministry associate at Regeneration Ministries, a Christian ministry that provides support to men and women “struggling with homosexuality,” said the billboard’s message is meant to provide hope.
