Journey into Manhood
is a program designed to rid Christian men of their attraction to other men. The program is rooted in the belief that homosexuality has its source in gay men's early relationships with their parents and peers
. The program is endorsed by the National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality
, whose writings on "Childhood Gender-Identity Deficit"
seems to have greatly influenced the JiM program. Straight, atheist writer, Jim Cox, decided to investigate the program. He writes about his experience here: What Happened When I Went Undercover at a Christian Gay-to-Straight Conversion Camp
