shared leadership

What wonders could occur in the lives of people and society if we took to heart the call to ministry of all Christians through their baptism. Laity are the ones who model their faith in everyday living with their co-workers, friends and family. The knowledge that "educated" clergy have combined with the insights of laity from their daily experiences can revitalize the church.

Notable Quotes


"Each and every day, more and more LGBTQ people and our allies are coming out of a different closet — as evangelical Christians. And as more of us step out, the more we are sensing that the Spirit of God is powerfully working in our midst. The fruit that we are seeing coming from these churches, ministries and lives is abundant. We are seeing real lives saved. Faith is reborn in the hearts of many who never thought there would be a place for them at God’s table. Revival is breaking out among younger evangelicals, who are catching a glimpse of the new thing God is doing in our midst. In other words, we are seeing tremendous blessing, not wrath."

– Author and activist Brandan Robertson in a Religion News Service commentary, "I'm Queer and I'm Still Evangelical."
