Affiliated Seminary: Chicago Theological Seminary
I am a first year MDiv student at Chicago Theological Seminary. My hopes are upon ordination/graduation, I will work with other churches/denominations/leadership to learn how to work with and bridge the spiritual gap between LGBT populations and church. At this point, I am working on my own spiritual journey, gaining knowledge to use in hopes to advocate for LGBTQ rights, with the ultimate goal of assisting LGBTQ individuals with their own spiritual journeys.
I am working on building my knowledge, obtaining tools and resources for my upcoming ministry, and build a network of colleagues.
Thank you for supporting my fundraiser for Parity's Be the Hope Conference and Retreat in March, 2018. Any money raised above my goal of $125 will help other emerging pastors like me to attend Be the Hope, and to be empowered for their ministries.
