To bring awareness to the transforming love and power of Jesus Christ by journeying with those who desire complete wholeness within their identity and sexuality.
Coming Out, Inc. is a Christian global outreach ministry offering support services and resources to men and women of all ages, dealing with emotional, sexual, spiritual and relational brokenness that may have contributed to alternative lifestyle choices in their identity and sexuality. Our services serve as a support system to walk alongside individuals and their loved ones as they seek Christ for biblical wholeness in their identity, sexuality, spirituality and relationships—thus being empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome struggles with homosexuality, gender confusion and same-sex attractions.
Our overall goal is to lead a person into complete wholeness through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that by identifying and receiving inner healing from our past trauma's, learning who we are according to biblical standards, incorporating practical life applications on how to live a spirit filled life and through prayer, change is possible for those desiring and willing.
In addition, we host programs to evangelize and display God's love to members of the LGBTQ community. Bringing comfort, hope, love and the truth of wholeness to those that are hurting. We also promote and support anti-bullying, HIV Awareness, suicide prevention, mental health and child molestation awareness.
Meet The Founder
Tamika Sanders is the founder and executive director of Coming Out, Inc. She is a public speaker, spiritual mentor and a prophetic voice for this generation. She surrendered her life to Christ in 2007 in Detroit, MI, during her sophomore year in college at Eastern Michigan University. After years of serving in various ministry capacities, she answered her call to full time ministry in January 2016, after relocating to Dallas, Tx to join The Potter’s House Church, where Bishop T.D. Jakes is her senior pastor.
After experiencing the delivering hand of God from generational strongholds in her own identity, and forgiveness of childhood abandonment which yielded the restoration of an estranged relationship with her father, Tamika grew a passion to see all people completely whole, set free and delivered. In 2009, she began mentoring women one-on-one who approached her with an expressed desire to find freedom in Christ from lesbianism and gender confusion that was triggered by childhood abuse, neglect and other traumas. After hearing their stories and stories of others who’ve tried to overcome in this area, she found herself relating to the root causes of their brokenness more than she’d ever imagine, while quickly learning their number one hurdle in staying the course to wholeness was finding adequate support within their local churches--leaving them feeling isolated, judged and alone in their struggles.
Though she does not have a past in homosexuality, Tamika has a huge heart for hurting people and could not ignore the call from God to provide a safe haven for those coming out of homosexuality; a place to be healed, restored and renewed. Tamika is also committed to becoming an added resource to the church by equipping leaders with the proper tools to offer compassionate support, without compromise, while effectively ministering Biblical truth in love to those impacted by same-sex desires.
With much prayer and a vision from God of thousands coming out of the LGBTQ community to seek lasting freedom and complete wholeness through Jesus Christ, Coming Out, Inc. was established on National Coming Out Day, October 11, 2016, which is also the same date as her birthday. Believing this was a divine confirmation from God, each year she dedicates her birthday to Coming Out, Inc. with fasting and intercession for LGBTQ communities around the globe and celebration at our annual Coming Out Gala!
