Andy Wells

Andy Wells is the author of "Tried to Be Straight: Options for Gay Christians." He holds a Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Andy’s education, coupled with his life experience struggling to reconcile his faith and sexuality, lend credibility to his writing.

Andy’s passion for the topics of sexuality and faith come from his struggle with self-acceptance. He knows the frustration of living as a secretly gay man and a publicly born-again Christian. Finding a solution that works without having to abandon one’s faith is Andy’s desire in helping others facing the same dilemma.

Andy and I talk about what self-worth and what it has looked like throughout his journey. Andy’s journey is one of understanding himself deeper, and growing through faith to find community that invites him to live into who he truly feels God has created him to be.

Active Faith Podcast
Building a theology of self-care together
In the Great Commandment, we hear Jesus call us to not only love God but to also love our neighbors as ourselves. This podcast is about the “as ourselves” part, as we learn what it means to care for ourselves in a holistic way that opens our spirits to more fully care for all of creation.

Andrew Ware

I began running when I was a kid. My mom says I went straight from crawling to running. However, I have been over a lot of hurdles to get to this point, and I would be nowhere without several communities to help me get here.
I am also a pastor in the United Methodist Church, and I have used my passion for creating loving and caring communities to help share God’s grace.
