When God made you

He said you were good.

We all have a story when it comes to our identity. We’ve all encountered different truths & lies that impact how we see God, ourselves, and others. Despite our best efforts, shame, confusion, and mistrust with ourselves & God around our identity is often the result. Don’t worry, it’s not a new thing – it’s been a cycle in people & culture since Adam & Eve. You’re not alone. Freedom & clarity is possible for you.

So, what does God have to say about this? How does God handle this conversation?

Great Question.

We believe God handles these conversations compassionately & truthfully.

He has a lot of good things to tell you. We want to discover that with you. Check out this video. –>

Our Speakers

ELIZABETH WONING

Elizabeth Woning “came out” in her early 20s & attended a Presbyterian Church (USA) seminary openly lesbian. She had an encounter with Jesus that radically shifted her perspective in that season. She says, “The love of God drew me into a revelation that transformed my life.”

Her heart is to see the LGBTQ community fully reconciled to God & to explore compassionate means of connection to those who disagree with traditional Christian beliefs.

KEN WILLIAMS

Ken began a pursuit of his true sexual identity in 1987 when his battle against homosexuality grew into intentions of suicide. After over a decade of failed attempts at freedom, he says he, “encountered God in areas & ways that transformed me.” The following years healed childhood trauma, replaced lies with truth, forged intimacy with God, and established self-love and masculine identity.

Today he’s a public advocate for men & women to have rights, freedoms, & counseling to leave an LGBTQ life behind if they so choose.

WATCH KEN'S STORY

We have faith for breakthrough. This weekend is going to be amazing for our church family & region!

God is pursuing our generation with hope and mercy amidst pop-culture’s confusing messages on sexual identity. He never intended for His children to anxiously question their sexuality or gender, or hide in shame. We’ve seen Him move over and over to meet men and women right where they are—no matter their life’s experiences—to know His love. God has answers and direction for our lives if we will invite Him. And so we are committed to creating (and protecting) safe spaces that foster the transformation that comes through vulnerability with Jesus.

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are made new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

You’ve gotta hear these stories…

What does Changed believe about “change”?
