About Us

Arguably one of the most divisive topics of our time, faith and sexuality conversations continue to divide churches and families, hurt our witness with others, inhibit our own spiritual growth, and damage LGBTQ+ people.

The church has a reputation for being anti-gay, oftentimes because of harm we have unintentionally caused to LGBTQ+ people. As a result, LGBTQ+ and straight Christians alike are leaving the church or giving up on their faith because they feel unsafe around other believers, unable to engage sincere questions, and unwelcome from community where they can authentically grow in their faith.

 

This is where LOVEboldly enters the fray.

LOVEboldly's mission is to empower willing Christians and LGBTQ+ individuals to step towards loving one another boldly. We know that coming into contact with insightful, open-hearted individuals who are different than us has a proven track record for empowering us to shed tendencies towards dismissing or dehumanizing one another. So conversations with one another, rather than about one another, are vital. 

 

We equip Christians to practice reconciliation with the LGBT community through:

  • Exploring questions of Biblical interpretation of key Scriptures on sexuality
  • Building a theological model for Christlike presence with marginalized groups
  • Fostering empathy and compassion by sharing thoughtful LGBT stories/perspectives
  • Instilling confidence into pastoral leaders by providing LGBT culture training (language, history, customs/celebrations, views)
  • Creating entry point opportunities for dialogue between Christians and the LGBT community
  • Calling Christians to repentant action on behalf of the LGBT community
  •  

We respond to the spiritual needs of LGBTQ+ Christians by:

  • Building Christian community/discipleship groups for LGBTQ+ and straight Christian friends
  • Providing resources for LGBTQ+ Christians to connect with other Christians and grow in their faith
