Alan and Leslie got engaged on their first date while working for major league baseball great Orel Hershiser and his family. They married in January 1998 and began a very public journey living their faith and sharing their lives in the most public of ways. During their 16 years of marriage they have been featured on every major (and minor) media outlet in the world related to Alan's personal story as a Christian with same-sex attractions, their unlikely union, and his work. From 2001 to 2012 the Chambers led Exodus International, the world's largest network of ministries for people impacted by homosexuality. Together with their core team of leaders and board of directors they closed Exodus in 2013 and began making great strides towards building relationships with the LGBT community and encouraging the global Church to do the same. Their goal is to reduce fear, establish trust, and inspire hope on both sides for the sake of the Gospel. Alan has authored 2 books and is currently working on his 3rd with Leslie. They write regularly at AlanChambers.org.

Alan and Leslie spend the best part of their lives with their 8 and 9 year olds, Molly and Isaac, and the rest having conversations about all things gay with anyone and everyone who asks. The Chambers live in Winter Park, Florida.
