Coming Alongside


Parakaleo is a ministry of support, training and encouragement to individuals struggling with same sex attraction and other issues of sexual brokenness. Parakaleo is a Greek word meaning to come alongside of, beseech, encourage, teach and comfort. Founded by Willard "Ouija" Sink, Parakaleo is an official non-profit (501c3) ministry in North Carolina.

The need, however, is for truth to impact culture. In Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, author Jeffrey Satinover says "(I)t is not really a battle over mere sexuality, but rather over which spirit shall claim our allegiance. The cultural and political battle over homosexuality has become in many respects the defining moment of our society. It has implications that go far beyond the surface matter of 'gay rights.' And so the more important dimension of this battle is not the political one, it is the one for the individual human soul."

A group meets regularly for anyone who needs fellowship, prayer, accountability, and encouragement in several different areas of sexual struggle. There is a weekly group meeting; call Ouija for more information on how to get involved if you are interested. Call Parakaleo/Ouija at (336) 813-8084 or e-mail to
