Though I haven't been a member of GCN for long, the organization offers me a lot. Obviously, the largest area of help is in my faith and Christian walk. Where society kind of looks at at a gay Christian as oxymoronic, GCN affirms and embraces LGBT people of faith. Different denominations and beliefs come together in a "safe" place. In little time, I have begun to feel like a member of a family, not just a internet community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Gay people being aided and encouraged in their faith by other gay people of faith and our allies.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Start a mailing campaign to reach more potential donors. Attempt to advertise on popular networking sites and in affirming churches. Basically, tighten the logistics of the organization to streamline processes and stretch limited funds.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The sense of family and belonging almost immediately upon joining. I didn't have to work my way into a group. They openly accepted and encouraged me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Though only by internet thus far, the staff are very knowledgable of the subject matter and sensitive to the needs of other members. Many volunteers are just ordinary members going the extra mile for everyone's benefit.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide more materials for free to people of faith; expand its mass media presence; hold more seminars and retreats for members in different regions; take GCN's message to the international community of gay christians beyond America's borders.

Ways to make it better...

An easier to find listing of all forums was provided.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Without a doubt, the biggest challenges preventing this organization from being an extremely positive force in the LGBT community are funding and recognition.

One thing I'd also say is that...

If the organization can further tap the power of its members to volunteer and listen to those volunteers in decision making, the organization has much more potential of remaining viable.

The Gay Christian Network was there for me when I was first realizing/accepting my sexual orientation & needing to talk about it and not knowing where to go to do so. I didn't feel safe discussing the matter with anyone I knew at the time, and being a sold-out Christian, I wanted and needed to know if/that other believers were going through the same things, and how they were dealing with it. The comfort I received from the members I interacted with gave me the courage to accept myself as I am.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

interacting with people like me- who love God and also happen to be gay- its the neatest thing to have that kind of fellowship where you can just be yourself and be loved and understood, especially considering the unique struggles gay Christians face.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I met Justin and several other GCN'ers at a conference recently. Great people!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach and help more people that may really be hurting and really need it.

Ways to make it better...

there had been a local gay Christian group in my area so that I could have interacted with other gay Christians face-to-face- though initially, I think the safety of the internet experience was what enabled me to reach out at all.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial struggles and all that covers - reaching out to gay Christians, their friends and families to bring support and help build a bridge of understanding, hope and love.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I thank God for this ministry!
