WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT CANYONWALKER CONNECTIONS:
“Kathy Baldock is one of the most tireless, dedicated, and influential advocates for LGBT Christians in the evangelical church. Her work has helped to transform the lives of thousands of people, and her ministry is a model of the kind of effective, conciliatory, bridge-building work the church desperately needs.” —Matthew Vines, President, The Reformation Project
“Your seminar was the first time in my life (45 years) that I saw the true interpretation of the historical timeline and the Bible side by side. I realized that I was not an abomination to God as my mother states. Thank you for enlightening my path as I walk with God in my new understanding of His Word.” — Brian, Sacramento
“Kathy’s seminar has changed my whole understanding of the history of the American Church, American politics, and the LGBT community. Her precise way of cutting through the lies, mistruths, and ignorance of the general population regarding this information is transformative. I walked away with a better understanding of what society has said about LGBT persons versus what God has said about LGBT persons. This understanding gave me freedom of faith, an acceptance of my own sexuality, and cultivated healing and wholeness in my life.” – Alisa, San Francisco
“Finding Kathy’s website was a blessing for us. We are Christian parents who raised our children in church and Christian school. Having a gay child brought years of shame and guilt. We were confused, struggling and searching for answers. When I stumbled onto her website, it was a breath of fresh air!
“Kathy has been given a gift to share, a mission to reveal the truth, a ministry of reconciliation that cannot be stopped and won’t be silenced. Kathy, you are strong, you are kind, you are a blessing to so many. Thank you from the bottom of our weary hearts!” — Sandra, SoCal
“When I first heard you speak at a local conference last year I was touched by the passion and drive that the Lord had put on your heart for this topic. You are filling a hole in the story that has not been told and I’m excited to see where it leads. Thank you for standing up when called.” —Clifton, KC, MO
“Kathy Baldock has achieved something remarkable. By tying together such disparate threads as historical understandings of sexuality, scientific discovery, 20th century political movements, and scriptural translation, she’s created a timeline we can look to to better understand where we have come from and where we are now.
“At a time of passionate discord over the efficacy of gay relationships and the mainstreaming of marginalized LGBT people both within the church and society, Baldock offers a necessary tonic to our understandings. Regardless of anyone’s position on these matters, there is something new to be heard here.
“Baldock herself is eloquent, charming and often quite funny. She seems to take herself seriously only in her passion for God, for truth, and setting people free – people who have been held captive for far too long by fear, by misunderstanding, and by just plain bad practice of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” — Shane, Sacramento, CA
“I support Kathy’s work because I admire what she does and stands for. Her work, writing and speaking has been an encouragement to me in my personal journey as the proud mom of a gay son. She’s an inspiration—and I hope to, like Kathy, impact my community with the message of Christ’s love for ALL.”
— Dena, San Diego, CA
“There are those who speak eloquently about spiritual abuses levied against the LGBTQ communities, and others who by their life model a different and holy path. Kathy Baldock is a national leader helping to facilitate honoring discussions with the goal of seeing latent prejudice, anger and ignorance dissipate with each handshake and hug.
Far from strident, her teaching and presentation lays out a solid foundation for understanding and bridge building that can liberate many hard hearts and invite people to unclench fists. It is a must read.” — Butch Maltby, domestic and global fundraising consultant, Senior Advisor Newton Media
