To subscribe to historic Christian theology is to take a stance on faith and sexuality that can often create conflict and tension—and sometimes offense. At times, it can even shatter the chance of having a life that is understood and celebrated. People pleasers, buckle in for a journey filled with aching wounds and glorious blessings. In this session, Carson Sotelo will share his story of becoming a Christian, identifying as a gay man, and understanding how his theology shaped his relationships with God, loved ones, and himself.
Carson Sotelo is member of New City Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati, OH. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, Spanish, and International Studies from Saint Louis University. Carson seeks to pursue what it looks like for a gay Christian to live out a life that honors God, including upholding a traditional sex ethic. He currently teaches English as a Second Language and leads a community group through New City. He resides in Cincinnati, Ohio.
