NEW STORY: CHandra ryder, Rain city church

Valen Arnesto

Oakridge Adventist Church

I sat as a church staffer in a board meeting while respected church leaders presented their views on LGBTQ+ staffers, asserting that anyone who identified in this group had no place on the church's payroll. My heart broke and I excused myself, sobbing in the corridor.||Church Clarity will save others from being in my position - rising to leadership roles where they are "not supposed to be." Anyone who chooses the path of ministry for a living deserves to know what policies affect them upfront; no bait-and-switch.
