Wow, this book should be required reading for ALL Christian denominations. Ross Murray, in all of his experience, skill and wisdom, smartly and poignantly lays out tools for church leaders and congregations to build LGBTQ affirming ministries. Filled with anecdotes of successes and failures, this book utilizes Murray's 20+ years of experience in LGBTQ youth ministry to lay out learnings applicable to any church body. It truly is a roadmap for any church looking to bring its ministry into the 21s ...more

It was late in the evening when I finally got a chance to read my advance PDF copy of "Made, Known, Loved." I figured I'd read a couple of chapters of interest, but I absolutely couldn't stop reading! I laughed and cringed as I remembered my own years in youth ministry, including ministry with LGBTQ youth. I appreciated Ross Murray's honesty about his own growth in ministering to LGBTQ youth as well as the hard-earned and practical wisdom he offers to others working in this field. I immediately ...more

I like this book by Ross Murray so much, especially for its central premise that LGBTQ people are and belong in every faith. I was not raised very religious, but I was taught that God is love and that I was loved. That certainty had a huge effect in helping me accept myself as a member of the #LGBTQ community and to build a happy life--it was pivotal. I am so glad this book exists as a guide for leaders of any faith to give young people (and everyone else too) the huge gift of belonging and feel ...more

This is a very well written book!!! For me love is love and can't be encapsulated in boundaries or boxes and The Naming Project provides a place where youth of all sexual orientations and gender identities can be safe and affirmed in their identity and faith. I totally recommend this one !!! ...more

Recommends it for: youth ministry leaders, clergy, parents, anyone who works with LGBTQ youth
Jesus ministered to people where they were at. Today's church isn't doing that with only 47% of US adults belonging to a church, synagogue or mosque. Made, Known, Loved: Developing Lgbtq-Inclusive Youth Ministry will help our churches do a much better job of telling LGBTQ youth what a beautiful creation of God they are. Imagine how different a generation of LGBTQ youth could have grown up into faithful adults if we hadn’t pushed them out by telling them that God didn’t love them as they are. Thi ...more
