I’m Nathanial Green. I’m living in Nashville, Tennessee, working on staff at GracePointe Church having recently completed my undergraduate degree in music and worship studies at Liberty University, of all places. I grew up in a conservative, evangelical family in a farming town in Michigan – yet, as fate would have it, I’m gay.
After a year and a half of asking questions, undergoing a deconstruction of my faith, and losing everything I thought was secure, I’m writing about my experiences and thoughts from my weird little perspective. I’m caught between seemingly opposed realities, trying to make things better for LGBTQ people like myself in spaces where they may not be welcomed. I recently married my husband Elliot who I had met at Liberty, and we’re living the life we’d hoped to build for ourselves: out and happy with an affirming church home.
