"Jesus & the LGBTQ Christian hit home for me. It's like Chase Faulkner is speaking directly from my own experiences—dealing with the pain that comes from growing up in a non-affirming faith environment. This book is filled with truths that are hard to face but impossible to ignore."

Is it OK for me to be both LGBTQ and Christian?
If I accept my LGBTQ sexual identity, am I living in sin?

Chase Faulkner, an experienced pastor, crisis counselor, and LGBTQ advocate, shares his personal journey of struggling with the intersection of faith, sexuality, and identity through the lens of God's Word. Join him in discovering the transformative power of love, faith, and acceptance as he guides LGBTQ believers toward a path of hope, healing, and wholeness.

In his groundbreaking book, "Jesus & the LGBTQ Christian," Faulkner weaves his personal story with five powerful strategies that integrate psychology, spirituality, and theology. He explains step-by-step how to experience the profound unconditional love of Jesus, embrace your authentic identity, and address any wounds you may have experienced in your church or family.

With a Master's Degree in Theological Studies, he explores the often-debated Clobber Passages, examining them thoughtfully within their cultural and historical contexts alongside our evolving scientific understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity.

What you will learn:

  • Find Healing and Wholeness: Discover transformative strategies to overcome religious trauma and embrace the fullness of your God-given identity, free from the constraints of celibacy, guilt, or shame.

  • Experience Unconditional Love: Engage in Christ-centered spiritual practices to help you experience God's presence more fully and renew your connection with an unwavering love that knows no conditions except faith in Christ. Learn how to walk in God's love, providing comfort and strength to face life's challenges with confidence.

  • Build Affirming Relationships: Surround yourself with people who celebrate your authentic identity, providing a nurturing environment where you can thrive and belong while distancing yourself from people who trigger guilt, shame, fear of rejection and judgment.

  • Navigate Scripture with Confidence: Equip yourself with tools to interpret scripture in a way that affirms your LGBTQ identity, reflecting God's view of you as fearfully and wonderfully made, empowering you to reconcile your faith with the person God created you to be.

  • Embrace Your Authentic Identity: Embrace your unique identity and approach God's throne of grace with confidence, shedding the weight of church and family expectations and embracing the fullness of who you are in Christ.

Faulkner addresses the wounds of religious trauma, such as anxiety, depression, discrimination, guilt, shame, internalized homophobia, and suicidal thoughts, dismantling harmful teachings like "Homosexuality is a Choice" and "The Only Option for LGBTQ Christians is Celibacy." If you or someone you know has experienced harm from religious teachings or struggles with accepting LGBTQ identity, this book can offer a lifeline.

Faulkner recognizes the urgency of his message in light of alarming statistics regarding LGBTQ individuals: In the U.S. alone, over 1.8 million young people seriously contemplate suicide annually, with at least one attempting suicide every 45 seconds. "Jesus & the LGBTQ Christian" offers a beacon of hope, providing practical advice and comfort free from judgment or conditions.
