Grace Rivers is a ministry to the LGBT community who have been hurt or suffered in the mainstream church. John Smid, former executive director of ex-gay ministry Love in Action, founded and directs Grace Rivers to tackle the religious issues that have affected the gay community. John shares his story in his book, “Ex’d Out: How I Fired the Shame Committee.”
Brandon Wallace, a former Southern Baptist Youth Minister, and the author of the soon-to-be-released Straight-Face: A Memoir of Pain, Doubt, Freedom…and Love, shares his experiences as a gay Christian through his blog.
