Church for Misfits started out as Far North Encouragement on this day back in 2015. In that time this place has grown and changed in ways that I never saw coming when we were first starting out. I have gotten to know people I never dreamed of meeting and been places I never thought I’d go. What I’ve written here has encouraged some, divided others, and pissed off a few, too. It’s also cost me a lot.
And you know what? I wouldn’t change a thing. Church for Misfits will always be a safe place for those who need it, whether you’re hurting or you’ve got questions or you just don’t know where else to go. At the same time, it will always be a voice within Christian circles for those who are not allowed a voice there. I have no idea where this community will be in the next year and beyond. All I know is those things will never change. Thank you to everyone who’s been a part of this over the last year. Church for Misfits just wouldn’t be the same without you. Here’s to wherever the road takes us!
