Presenting First Stone Ministries
Leading people In the Body of Christ to freedom from homosexuality and sexual brokenness* through a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord; to reach out to churches, schools, organizations, and the general public by providing education, biblical discipleship, and support.
To minister healing and restoration in all areas of brokenness. We specialize in leading those caught in a homosexual lifestyle and other areas of sexual brokenness to freedom in Jesus Christ. We are dedicated to the healing of the homosexual, and otherwise sexually broken, and wounded. Freedom from homosexuality is not a method, but a person, Jesus Christ; therefore, we are dedicated solely to the purpose of bringing the life of Christ to people who desire to live their lives more like Jesus Christ and His examples given in the scriptures. We minister freedom through a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.
To educate churches and Christians how they may respond biblically, compassionately, and knowledgeably to those impacted by homosexuality, relational and sexual sins, and abuse.
Who We Are
First Stone Ministries was founded in 1976 as Fisher’s of Men Evangelistic Corporation by Frank and Peg Rogers. The ministries’ focus was evangelism until they learned their son was a homosexual. Having discovered that there was no local help, Frank and Peg began putting their ministry focus on the healing of homosexuality. In 1981, the ministries’ name was changed to First Stone Ministries and incorporated as The First Stone Ministries. First Stone is a 501 (C) (3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization, independent and non-denominational. First Stone Ministries was one of the founding ministries of Exodus International in 1976 and was also one of the founding ministries of The Restored Hope Network and was part of the network from 2012-2019.
Since its founding in 1976, First Stone Ministries has been an independent nondenominational, Christ-centered, para-church organization. Prior to 1991 First Stone was only a part-time ministry; however, we are now a full-time ministry with ordained ministers and counseling staff and are governed by a Board of Directors to ensure financial and ethical accountability.
