North Point Church Hosting Conference With Founder of World’s Largest LGBTQ Christian Advocacy Org+ Other Affirming Speakers

Andy Stanley and Northpoint Community Church are hosting an event for parents of LGBTQ+ children. Four of the five speakers are LGBTQ-affirming, including one speaker who is the founder of the world’s largest LGBTQ Christian advocacy organization that is dedicated to advancing the acceptance and celebration of homosexuality in the church.

In recent weeks Protestia has shown that not only is Stanley gay-affirming, but rather several ministry heads are. We also unearthed that when parents come to them with concerns and counseling regarding their struggling LGBTQ+ children, North Point recommends an affirming ministry for the parents, and affirming ministries and counselors for the children.

On September 28-29, North Point will host the Unconditional Conference, presented by Embracing the Journey Ministry. Embracing the Journey is operated by Greg and Lynn McDonald, ministry leaders in North Point. While they paint themselves as neutral regarding whether homosexuality is a sin, in reality, they are wholly and utterly pro-LGBTQ. 

Speakers at the event include Andy Stanley, Greg and Lynn Mcdonald, and pastor John Ortberg, who endorsed the book “Embracing theJourney” but was recently let go from Menlo Church after it was revealed he knew his son was a pedophile, but still allowed him to volunteer with the children’s ministry. Other speakers include Debbie Causey, an affirming pastrix at North Point and the Director of Care Ministries, as well as Justin Lee.

According to Lee’s biography

For the last two decades, Justin Lee has been an influential Christian voice for LGBTQ affirmation, best known for working across areas of theological disagreement to promote grace and mutual understanding. He is the founder of the world’s largest LGBTQ Christian advocacy organization, (Gay Christian Network) the author of two books, and an internationally known speaker on faith, sexuality, and dialogue.

Justin’s first book, Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate, has been widely cited for its role in helping Christian parents understand and accept their LGBTQ kids. His newest book, Talking Across the Divide, offers strategies for having more productive conversations on controversial issues in a polarized society.

Justin lives in Orlando, Florida, where he currently serves as the executive director of Nuance Ministries. He makes educational videos on the Bible and other topics on his YouTube channel and blogs at

Birds of a feather…

    1. The new and improved versions of “Christianity” do indeed detract from true Christianity. However, after reading through Corinthians and reading the letters to the seven churches in the Book of Revelation, it becomes difficult to ascertain that fine line between a wayward Church of Christ and one that is completely apostate and their lampstand has been taken away. Those churches mentioned definitely had major problems, but were still considered included.

      Tom, by the way, I did finally respond to your comment related to the Todd White article from two weeks ago.

    1. Yet so many theologically inept members of the older generation listened to Charles Stanley and heralded him as a wonderful, conservative Bible teacher who “told it like it is”.

  1. Charles Stanley testified a couple of years ago that the Holy Spirit told him which frozen turkey to choose for Thanksgiving.

  2. Unconditional? The Bible mentions some rather explicit conditions to be moved from “the wrath of God remains upon them” to “an adopted child of God”. A very short and sweet list, but Salvation is still conditional upon those things.
