After going public as an affirming ally, I was asked to step down from my position as a worship leader after 9 years at a church I loved with people I considered family. I was cut off from the community and left on the outside. It’s important to me that any person looking for a church family knows what they’re walking into beforehand and have the information they need to make an informed decision.
