We are a group of Christian parents offering support to those who find it difficult to talk about their LGBT children with church and Christian friends.

When choosing a name for this organisation, we wanted something short, yet described us as a group of individuals who have a special calling—that of being parents to gay or lesbian children. Eklektos is a Greek word meaning chosen, elect, to choose or to select.

If you are a parent of a LGBT child, then God has chosen you to express His love for your child. Not to condemn or condone, but to love them as Christ loves you.

For some, this will be a difficult journey and that is why God has called us to set up Eklektos—so we can support one another on this journey of faith. It is probably not a path we would have chosen, but God has chosen us so that we may bring Him glory through it.
