Nuance Ministries, Inc., is a new nonprofit organization founded by Justin Lee in 2017 following his two decades of work in LGBT Christian ministry.
We live in a polarized world that deals with disagreements by drawing battle lines: Gays vs. Christians. Republicans vs. Democrats. Us vs. Them. Too often, this thinking has infected and even characterized the modern church.
At Nuance, we believe that Christ calls us to a gracious, nuanced approach to difficult issues, and we believe that approach is particularly needed in the church’s handling of LGBT issues.
We are working for greater understanding and support of LGBT people in every part of the global church, not just those where it’s easiest or most convenient. We believe that goal requires thoughtful, Spirit-led dialogue instead of shouting at one another across the divide.
Nuance’s work is based on the same principles outlined in Justin’s book Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate and his upcoming book Talking Across the Divide.
