Transforming Congregations
is a ministry of Good News

A renewal ministry for the United Methodist Church

 We serve to equip the UMC and the Global  Methodist Church  

   in restoring relationships and human sexuality   

About Transforming Congregations

For nearly forty years, Transforming Congregations has served individual pastors, churches, and church leadership teams. We equip churches to continue to uphold Biblical and godly morality in the areas of relationships and human sexuality, despite intense pressure from both outside and inside the church to compromise God's call to holiness. However, we also equip pastors and their teams to minister to broken and hurting people within their churches who are struggling with these same issues, upholding Biblical morality but also serving, minstering to and loving these individuals in a loving and godly way, leading not only to individual healing but also a church culture of change and transformation.

Pastor's Corner

This area of our website is designed specifically to encourage Methodist pastors, both on a confidential and personal basis, but also equip pastors in their role as a leader and shepherd of their congregation. Confidential pastoral care is also available for you. For more information, please click here

About Garry & Melissa Ingraham

Both Garry and Melissa come from a background of sexual brokenness, trauma and the pain of years of living away from Jesus.
But they both have incredible stories of redemption, transformation, and victory in Jesus Christ.

What leaders within the UMC have
to say about Transforming Congregations

Rev Branson Sheets

This man is indeed multi-talented and has a great story to share.  The thing that is so great about him is that he shares everything with such grace that the truth of the Bible is easy to receive.  What a resource for the Church!  


Rev Dr Craig Green

"Garry spoke in a way that profoundly impacted and challenged my church family- to be as honest and vulnerable in our preaching is Garry is."


Pastor Gene Maddox

"My purpose in having Garry come was to help our church know that we could maintain an orthodox belief as regards human sexuality, but love and reach out to the LGBT Community."


Reverend Rob Renfroe

"Garry does a magnificent job of presenting God's heart for broken people, and God's promises of redemption and transformation."
