What would you do if someone told you that you weren’t welcome in your church?
 After more than a decade of presiding over weddings, veteran minister Mieke Vandersall officiated a ceremony between two men — and faced being brought up on charges in the Presbyterian Church. 
Transman Alex McNeill’s divine call is obvious to anyone who has spent more than five minutes talking to him. Yet, no openly transgender person has ever completed the ordination process and received a call to a job. 
For Rev. Kate LeFranc, achieving ordination as an out queer woman was an act of personal will. But LGBTQ people can’t get hired for church jobs by personal will alone. 
Growing up as a gay Christian in rural Texas was hard for Rev. John Stanger, and it hasn’t gotten any easier for the queer youth who have come after him. He calls on his experience to help heal the wounds the church continues to make. 
Missing a day of church always left Rev. Bertram Johnson with an empty feeling. Having to reconcile his sexuality with his calling to ministry nearly tore him apart. 
Like many LGBTQ Christians, each of these faith leaders has been told they weren’t welcome in their churches. Rather than hide or leave the church, they took the extraordinary step to redefine welcome for their congregations and their church communities as a whole.
