James Parker is working in a volunteer capacity with the Marriage Coalition. He married an Australian lady nearly ten years ago and they have one child. He originates from the UK and began residing permanently in Australia in 2013.

James made a commitment to Christ in his early 20s. His working life saw him engage with some of the world’s most elite sportspeople and travel extensively across Africa and the Middle East taking the Gospel message of Christ.

James was voted as chair of More Than Gold, one of the world’s largest ecumenical initiatives which saw 16 Christian denominations working and praying together daily over three years to serve the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. More recently he was engaged with media and communications serving churches across Western Australia. He presently serves as chair of Christians Together in Sport, an ecumenical initiative in Western Australia that gathers churches together to witness to the presence of Christ in sport and to celebrate the gift that sport is to our nation.

James is a founding member of an international Christian network for men. He has taught extensively on same-sex attraction and sexual addiction and has run programmes and seminars across Europe to help foster new groups and organisations to help support men and women in their journey of recovery.

James also spent ten years in London engaging with the unique spiritual journeys of literally hundreds of men and women with differing degrees of same-sex attraction.

As an abuse survivor, and having previously lived and practiced as a gay rights’ activist, James has a passion for the godly restoration of men and women. He is keen to break open to people the radical differences between a long-term committed homosexual and heterosexual relationship, both of which he has lived out. He also exposes how 21st century society has arrived at same-sex "marriage" and where society is most likely heading.
