Executive Director, Desert Hope Ministries, M.A. '95.
Janelle Hallman is a licensed professional counselor in Denver, Colo., a writer, and an internationally recognized speaker. Janelle’s speaking ministry focuses on sexuality, human brokenness, redemption and healing. This emphasis is reflected in her role as the Executive Director of Desert Hope Ministries. The Reforming the Glory conferences hosted by Desert Hope bring the message of God’s design for sexuality to today’s culture. Janelle is also considered an expert in the field of female homosexuality. Passionate about her ministry, she humbly emphasizes that being considered an ‘expert’ simply results from the general neglect of the study of counseling female homosexuals. She has been developing a theory on understanding and treating female homosexuals and is currently writing ‘the’ book on clinical work with female homosexuals. “My passion is to integrate God’s truth and original design in his creation of humanity with what we have classically observed in psychological studies of human behavior,” said Janelle. “Sound theology and psychology compliment one another.”
