Name: Andrew Olson

Location: Chicago, IL

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.

Dear Friends,

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.



Andrew's progress!
