Alicia Johnston: Into Ministry

Alicia Johnston was a pastor in the Seventh-day Adventist church until the Pulse tragedy made her pause and reflect on how the Christian church was treating LGBTQI+ people. It also started her on a journey that would lead her to come out as both bi and LGBTQ affirming. 

Join us as we kick off Pride Month reflecting on Alicias story, her calling to ministry and the beauty of an identity birthed in Jesus.

She also has recently finished a book called The Bible and LGBTQ Adventists. According to SDAKinship, "Her hope is that this book can empower LGBTQ Adventists to accept themselves with full confidence, and provide their family and friends with a framework for acceptance within the theological language of the Adventist church."

This is a book for every LGBTQ Adventist, their churches, families and friends.

The Kick Starter campaign starts on June 18, 2021.

Born and raised in the church, Jo never expected to find himself being pushed out by it. While Jo’s journey of self acceptance and a search for belonging has been challenging, it led him to find a loving God who was far greater than the sum of his painful experiences and hurt and a return to the church of his childhood. He hopes that all will be able to experience, as he has, a love that not only transforms them but also changes the way they see others.
