Gay and Married? The Story of Alan and Angie

It is not uncommon to hear of a couple who has been happily married for many years, with children, and all of a sudden one of the spouses reveals "I'm gay." Countless married men and women alike not only struggle with same-sex attraction, but many have also tragically given in to those temptations - going as far as breaking their marital vows with homosexual infidelity.

Enter Alan and Angie - a well-loved and respected Christian couple from down south. Happily married for many years and having a beautiful family and a family-owned business, Alan has been hiding a deep, dark secret from his wife, Angie, for their entire married life: Alan is "gay." Not only is Alan homosexual, but he also has had a partner on the side for quite some time - a man who works for Alan and Angie in their family-run florist shop. Listen as both husband and wife share how JESUS CHRIST transformed their lives and marriage, making this story "A DIVINE LOVE STORY." From the archives of Straight Talk Radio with Stephen and Irene Bennett. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.

Welcome to SBM Worldwide Online

SBM Worldwide, Inc. (SBM) has been helping individuals for more than a decade (since 2000) to understand the truth about homosexuality from a biblical and practical perspective. The ministry provides support and resources for men and women who are struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction, as well as one-on-one and group support, biblical resources, encouragement, and hope for parents, family members, and friends with loved ones who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT).

SBM was founded in 2000 by Stephen and Irene Bennett, husband and wife, with SBM's National Offices located in the heart of beautiful New England in Huntington, Connecticut. Stephen and Irene have two beautiful children. The Bennetts truly have a gift, a passion, and a calling to minister to homosexual men and women who desire change, as well as to their loved ones. We are here to encourage individuals through assurance that complete change is completely possible!

Stephen, 52 years old, struggled with same-sex attraction (SSA) throughout his teenage and young adult years, living an openly-gay lifestyle for more than 11 years until he was 28 years old. In 1990, Stephen, happy with his homosexual lifestyle and in a committed "gay" relationship for several years, was lovingly and biblically engaged about his lifestyle and evangelized with the gospel of Jesus Christ by a Christian friend. Two years later, much to the shock of everyone who knew him — especially his family and friends — Stephen was born again and completely surrendered his life to the Lord. It was at this time that Stephen made the decision the choice - to walk away from his homosexual lifestyle, never to return. His journey of "coming out" of homosexuality then began — dealing with many painful, emotional issues he had buried — including being molested at the age of 11. Stephen would never be the same again.

Stephen left his male partner and began his new walk with Christ in January of 1992. He began dating Irene in October of that year, then the two were married the following year, in June of 1993. Today, more than 20 years later, Stephen no longer struggles whatsoever with homosexuality. He shares his story of freedom and complete change at churches, conferences, events, and in the media worldwide. His encouraging message is that individuals who desire change can know that change is completely possible.

For more information on the ministry of SBM Worldwide, to invite Stephen to share his story and/or preach at your church, or to speak with someone about a loved one who is struggling with unwanted homosexuality or transgenderism, please call SBM Nationwide Toll-Free at 1-800-832-3623, Monday-Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST (the ministry offices are closed Fridays, weekends, and all holidays.)  SBM will also gladly take your prayer requests over the phone and will commit to pray for you on a daily basis.

SBM Worldwide is pleased to announce that Irene Bennett's first book, "Until Your Prodigal Comes Home — Encouragement Along the Way," will be published soon by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing! We are so excited to share this wonderful, compassionate book with those of you who pray daily  for your loved one who has strayed from Christ. Let this short excerpt encourage you as you wait:

"In the parable of the lost sheep, we see Jesus as the Good Shepherd. He leaves His ninety-nine sheep to go out into the wilderness to look for the one lost sheep until He finds it, and He is relentless in His search. In light of this fact, is there any place where your child can’t be reached? Jesus is in the wilderness right now, pursuing your child. It makes no difference whether your child is in another country, in a crack house, residing in a mansion, or living with you in the same home—Jesus, the Good Shepherd, is relentlessly looking for him to bring him home. Jesus doesn’t give up; He stays in the wilderness until He finds him. The Word of God says this is so."

 What a blessed day it will be when your prodigal returns home! Irene Bennett shares scripture, wisdom, and her deep insight gained from more than a decade of ministering to brokenhearted individuals with homosexual loved ones who were raised in the church and once claimed Christ as their Savior. Watch the SBM Worldwide website for your opportunity to pre-order your copy of this heart-touching book!
