i have been a member of WHOSOEVER for sometime now. I happen to find it by looking up the church GARDEN OF GRACE UCC when my partner and I married in Nov.2005 by Pastor Andy Sidden. When I found WHOSOEVER I thought it was just wonderful! Helpful information, great articles, wonderful answers and scripture references dealing with same sex love. Rev. Chellew-Hodge is an awesome writer with a tickling gut laughing sense of humor. I love the fact that they have the whosoever rainbow fish groups for online support groups and networking. I have meet some of the greatest people through it. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!

I found Whosoever through the book "Bullet-proof Faith" I am a middleage Christian convert & was blown away by the book so I googled Candace's name & found her online ministry. I felt supported by the online community & the volunteers there.

Knowing how many other Christians there are in the LGBT community!

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

Prompt in responding when I emailed. Pleasant & uplifting too!

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

Help make the world safer & more accepting of LGBT Christians, with more money they could be better known both on the web & perhaps in print & on T.V. & radio. I would love it if Candace had a radio show!

Ways to make it better...

There had been more non-evangelical Christians & experiences on the site.

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

Lack of funding.

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

The only complaint I have, is that I wish they had more of a selection of logo stuff in their store!

I have been a member of Whosever.org for approximatley 8 years (I think). It is a great resource for Christian perspectives on current issues realted to GLBT concerns. The owner of the site and publisher of the e-zine is approachable and very understanding of the challenges of life related to GLBT issues. The e-zine provides articles authored by people from all walks of life which bring a freshness to each issue.

I came from a very conservative background (cross old Roman Catholic and Fundamentalist Baptist with Pentecostal). I found the website after I had come out and had started planning for my wedding (to my girlfriend). I had pretty much given up on finding a church to attend and other Christians to talk to. Whosoever was a blessing. I found the support I needed and may have found a church I can feel comfortable attending.

The Great!

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

my own life. I found information and support I needed.

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

how simply and how well organized the information is.

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

I have only had online contact, but the information and writings online are excellent.

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

reach so many more hurting people around the world with the massage that God doesn't hate you for being different. That those of us who are both Christian and Gay are real people.

Ways to make it better...

there were more connections to local groups

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

challenges caused from being both Christia and gay related. I've met many from both groups that believe you can't be both.

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

If I had come across this site sooner, I might have come to terms with being attracted to a woman and being a Christian.

Wanting a place to go that was a "safe" haven to worship and praise God, I found Whosoever Ministries. In this world, gays and lesbians where gays and lesbians seem to be marginalized, we stand alone most of the time. We are shunned by our parents, left out by our peers for our belife systems, and put down by co-workers when we say, "I am Christian too." Many say, what a strange dicotomy did you say Christian? Yes, gay and proud, and Christian too! Willing to stand up for our rights, and willing to die for the Lord. Candy Jacobson

Keeping the site up and running and serving the large public interest

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

Thank you for you, each one of you.Praise God

I have been a fan of Whosoever since it was a newsletter. I found out about them while I was active in leadership with ECWR. I continue to read their materials, the blogs and interact with the leaders. I regularly recommend their site to those I encounter who are struggling with the reconciliation of the faith and sexual orientation.

Whosoever Ministries inc. is an essential resource for LGBT christians. I have been using the website for many months now and find it a great source of encouragement and inspiration. I would even go further and say that it has taken me out of the isolation that many people feel who are Christian and Gay. As a gay christian from Ireland, I have not much direct contact with other LGBT christian groups. The website, email groups, and the podcasts make me feel that I am part of the organisation, even though I have not met any of the people who run it in person. The recorded sermons are a lifeline to someone who does not feel at home in their own local church. The resouce material is excellent, from the prayer and scripture material to the website itself which is very informative and easy to follow. I almost feel as if Candace is my own pastor, because I have listened to her podcasts and find her to be one of the most inspirational preachers that I have heard. I have received a very warm welcome on my local rainbow fish group mailing list. This is a group that puts God and the people it serves first and it inspires us who use it to do the same. It has turned my life around and made me feel good about being Christian and gay. I am glad that I have this opportunity to let other people know about it.

The Great!

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

the way that it helped me to turn to my faith without fear, helped me realise that I was not alone and that it was ok to be gay and Christian

Ways to make it better...

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

expand worldwide, this would benefit anyone that experiences it.

More feedback...

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

Interacting with other members, listening and reading the sermons and resources and experiencing my faith and the gift of my sexual orientation in a new and exiting way.

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

I havent met anyone in person, but anyone I have dealt with in the group via email have been dedicated LGBT people who are serious about their mission and a joy to deal with

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

Take its mission in person to millions who so despetely need it.

Ways to make it better...

My experience could only be improved if I met the people who ran it in person, but as I live in another country this would not be possible.

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

The religous right, and all the other challenges faced by LGBT christians

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

The people who conceived the idea for this organisation were obviously very courageous, compassionate people with a very positive vision of how they would like to enrich the lives of others.

Whosoever Ministries, Inc. is an outstanding non-profit! It is accessible to anyone on the internet seeking to find guidance for their worries in regards to their sexuality and religion in a honest, thoughtful, and compassionate way. They helped to alleviate my anxieties about being both christian and a lesbian. They gave me strength with their words.

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

The power of the written word - in that reading the answers to my questions uplift my soul when I feel my faith can't go on.
