New Hope Ministries is the continuation of the work of Frank and Anita Worthen. The work began way back in 1973 when Frank, at 44 years old, recommitted his life to Jesus Christ. Over the next few years he founded Love In Action (LIA), one of the largest and oldest ex-gay ministries in the world. He was also one of the founding fathers of Exodus International North America in 1976. In 2012 Frank once again stepped to the forefront of ministry and became one of the founders of Restored Hope Network.

Over the last 40 years, Frank has appeared on countless radio and television shows including the 700 Club, James Dobson’s Focus on the Family and the Phil Donahue Show discussing moral orientation and gender, gay men, sex addiction, homosexuality born vs. learned, and related topics. In addition, Frank has written several books including “Helping People Step Out of Homosexuality” and his auto biography “Destiny Bridge".

New Hope Ministries offer a men’s support group, phone counseling, e-mail counseling, and testimonial/teaching at public speaking engagements.
