Comiskey started a support group for ex-gays at the Vineyard Santa Monica; with the encouragement of the pastor, Comiskey started his own ex-gay organization called Desert Stream Living Waters Ministries. In 1981, Comiskey became a pastor in the Vineyard Christian Fellowship. Later, Comiskey and Desert Stream would move and become part of Vineyard Anaheim, but this association finished when he moved to Kansas City. In the following years, Comiskey continued his work as a pastor and leader of Desert Stream Living Waters Ministries. Comiskey cites Leanne Payne as a major influence. Comiskey gives seminars on restoring whole relationships and avoiding homosexual relationships and behaviors and has written four books on the subject; Comiskey's Pursuing Sexual Wholeness became one of the most popular books on the topic. Comiskey and his wife now have four children. In April 2011, Comiskey converted to Roman Catholicism. This conversion was controversial among the Protestants that used his material and Living Waters International decided that Comiskey would no longer continue on as a member of the board.
