As a young boy I dreamed of having a best friend. While standing outside of church one afternoon, I looked up to the sky and prayed for a friend who would be so close to me he would feel like a brother.
My journey to GCN was a classic one. I liked a boy, and I wanted to figure out if he liked me back. He didn’t! But, as usual, God had a plan for me regardless...
We exist! We exist, not only as an community that congregates for an annual event, but as a collective that transforms lives. I have come to know, personally and professionally, that GCN is not just my safe place, but is my spiritual family.
The theme of this year's Conference is “We exist. I belong.” In the coming weeks we’ll break down this theme in 12 devotionals to get you spiritually and relationally prepared for Conference.
The 2015 Portland Conference included one of my most memorable conference moments.
First and foremost, we care about fostering self acceptance and building safe communities.
