They say that testimony is the most powerful way to move hearts and bring people to Jesus. But sometimes we share our stories and they’re retold by others in a way that might not fully capture the heart of our struggles and how God has been working in us and through us as gay/SSA Christians.
How can we authentically share our stories, without them being appropriated, in ways that help churches and families understand and love us better in our unique journeys? Join Ray for a workshop on how to write and tell your testimony in a way that promotes compassion, challenge, and call to action.
Ray graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and is currently serving as a pastor in New York City. He has a passion for discipleship, evangelism, and social justice issues, and his dream is to see reconciliation between the Church and the LGBT+ community. In his free time he volunteers with Lead Them Home, a ministry that seeks to equip pastors with the knowledge, tools, and compassion to love and serve the LGBT+ community. His favorite color is orange, which has been described by his friends as somehow both easy to buy gifts for and difficult to find gifts for.
