The Gay Christian Network
June 10, 2009

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.

The Great!

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!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I reached out to others in my time of need and they helped me through it so that I didn't feel as isolated in my predicament of realizing that I'm gay.
