What is Threshold?
Threshold is a weekly podcast of sermons and conversations with LGBTQ faith leaders about God’s love that exceeds human boundaries. It’s about God who goes out in search of the outcast and the “otherized,” to bring us home and to call us chosen, to call us God's very own. It's a journey of finding God beyond thresholds, across human-made boundaries and borders.

Why Threshold?
I’ve been serving as a youth pastor in Evangelical churches for the past decade plus while pursuing my M.Div. from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles.

In the course of discovering that I’m trans and coming to terms with it these past five years, and now seeking to live authentically as myself, I thought I had to hang up my coat. And so I did.

I left the ministry. I left the communities of faith that raised me—because they would never accept who I am.

But, in recent weeks I began to notice something. I may have left the pastorate, but the calling didn’t leave me. In my interactions with people outside my role as “pastor,” I began to notice the way my heart would go out to them. Especially to LGBTQ Christians and teens. I would remember the way the Holy Spirit would minister to hurting people through such common things as a prayer or a sermon I would give.

A question began to arise within me: “Is it possible to continue in my calling without a church sponsoring my work in the way I've always known?”

That’s where you come in.

I hope, as you move with the prompting of the Spirit, you would join in supporting my work in this new and daring adventure.

Love,
Sophia
