The Gay Christian Network
June 10, 2009

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
