GRACE PROFILE | Exchanging Gay For God With Matthew Aaron Part 2 | GOF21

I sit down with Matthew Aaron and discuss how he reconciled his gay life with his Christian faith. Many times when a young person first discovers they have same-sex attraction, that can lead to great fear. Very often, unfortunately, the people they most fear are members in their church. Matthew Aaron shares his own ministry and why he made the decision to disengage from the cultural wars to focus on reaching people in the LGBTQ community one person at a time.

This episode is part two of a two-part series.
