and Identity

God, and the whole, full life you are called to live.

For over a decade we have served LBGTQ folks seeking ordination and calls.

Through this 37-page resource we are sharing what we've learned, covering the topics of being used, the closet, our hopes and joys, and more through direct anecdotes and common themes.



I attended your workshop. It’s what I’ve been craving all my life - to find a group of people who don’t think I can’t be who I am while still identify as a spiritual/religious person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to attending future Parity events. Can’t thank you enough.
— Mariaisabel, Youth
For the first time since I’ve come out, I have a place where everyone is queer, and I am completely safe. I don’t have to ask or question for a second whether someone will accept me. It was the most beautiful thing I could have asked for.
— Anonymous, Emerging LGBTQ Pastor
It brings real indescribable joy to be called a daughter
of God and a sister in our church.
