GCN has provided me a place to learn, explore and love not only the GLBT community but God as well.
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 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.
This organization helped me come out to my family and friends. They provide an engaged online community, informative texts and videos, and a relavent face-to-face social network.
GCN Has been a cornerstone of my journey.. with out the discussion boards, information and friendship I have found on GCN, I would be floundering and lost! Great organization with Tons of great people!
GCN helped me through the darkest moments of my life, and provided a much-needed support base. GCN has been a blessing to my life and I pray that it continues to be around for many years to come!
GCN is an amazing organization that provides a place for thousands of GLBT Christians who often times feel like they have no where else to go. They are encouraging and provide great resources for the encouragement of their members.
