My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Gay Christian Network, Raleigh, NC, USA
I have been affiliated with GCN, since about four years, and this organization serves an under represented community of believers. Individuals who believe in God, but who find themselves judged by a world of people that can be intolerant.
Oftentimes, many people who frequent GCN are people who are hurting, and as a private prayer team member we keep the confidences of everyone who submit prayers to our forum; where such knowledge about a person can prove harmful.
We aim to promote the belief of our risen Lord that love is the ultimate act of our believing, affirming community, and it is love that helps many of us through Christ to support in silence, pray with love and care.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen many people who pray for healing get an answer from God, and whose lives were lifted, inspired and elevated to save them from despair.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Do nothing really. GCN serves gay, Christian youth who are oftentimes not understood.
