Bruce Calkins

After his retirement as a Pastor, Bruce visited a man in prison. They prayerfully decided to begin an outreach to the gay community.

After the prison term was completed, the man invited his friends and contacts to a gathering. These were young gay men who felt wounded by their church or who had no church background at all. The men needed a place where they could safely share their pain and anger and their questions about God.

What began as an informal gathering became a faith community. There is now a focus on service and discipleship training. Some of the men are now ready to start new outreach groups so that others can experience God’s love through Jesus Christ.

Bruce is also an avid hiker.  It came as a delightful surprise to him to realize God was opening up another ministry area for him on the side of a mountain among fellow hikers.
