Rebecca's Story

Rebecca's Story

EQUIP has asked Side B gay Christian friends and family members to share their stories. Check out this story from Rebecca (name changed):

“I think maybe we should wait a while before you start leading in our Sunday School.” Even though I had braced for these words, I couldn’t stop the sinking feeling in my stomach and the prick of tears in my eyes. “I have a few questions for you,” continued Helen (name changed), the young adults minister at my church. Why? Because I am bisexual.

Help your Church Respond Compassionately

Help your Church Respond Compassionately

EQUIP has designed and tested a program, called Coming Out & Gay Pride: A Compassionate Christian Response, that invites Christians to think deeply and have healthy conversation about these topics. Better yet, this year your church can host Coming Out & Gay Pride at so that your members can learn how to respond compassionately to gay pride and coming out.

For you. For them. For EVERYONE.

For you. For them. For EVERYONE.

Pastors, potential donors, and friends often ask us, “I know you focus on equipping churches, but whom do you hope will benefit from the work? Non-Christian LGBT+ people? Gay Christians? Future generations?” Our answer: “All of them…but it’s complicated.”
