Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is possibly one of the most influential organizations for LGBT folks that have deep religious convictions. The Gay Christian Network services members of the LGBT community that happen to be involved in the Christian religion. Christianity in the United States and throughout the world, in modern times, has been known to have prejudices against those in sexual minorities. The Gay Christian Network provides an inclusive environment to over 12,000 people each day in helping them learn that being LGBT is not incompatible with Christianity. There are countless numbers of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Christians that are theologically conservative but have been harmed by the Church. GCN is the most active and influential organization that helps members and clients realize that they, despite of their sexual orientation, can participate in the Church. Both the LGBT community and the Christian community misunderstand each other. The Gay Christian Network, I believe, is the largest organization that is working to bridge the divide. They are actively trying to tell LGBT folks that Christianity is an inclusive religion (despite what many Christian leaders say), as well as trying to tell Christians that people who are LGBT are perfectly normal and should be included in the Church.

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

that I've met tons of people and developed more as a person.

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

very understanding and gracious.

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

significantly expand into other sectors such as multiple headquarters, added staff and management, and funding for many public projects.

Ways to make it better...

things got done quicker.

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

lack of needed funds.

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

it's the best non-profit I know of.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
