Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new!
2 Corinthians 5:17
Debora was a self-proclaimed atheist, fully entrenched in her lesbian life and gay community when God began to work on her heart in late 1994. Nine years later, on November 23, 2003, she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ and began to read the Bible every day because she wanted to know more about the God who had drawn her to Himself. Through His Word - God revealed the truth about how He wanted her to live, and in December 2005, she turned away from 18 years of living as a lesbian. She experienced inner healing from the wounds that propelled her into lesbianism with the support of a group of loving women at her church who invested in her life and loved her unconditionally. Reverend Debora Barr is the Director of the All Things New Ministry at her church, First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Maryland, where she facilitates a Discipleship Ministry to help people who experience same-sex attraction (SSA) and sexual brokenness to understand the causes and healing of SSA by allowing the Word of God to transform their lives. Debora has a passion for teaching, speaking, preaching and writing about personal intimacy with Jesus, helping to direct people to the unconditional love and healing power of Christ. She loves the Lord with all her heart and desires to help people completely transform their lives through their own personal relationship with Jesus!
