The North American Division (NAD) of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination is eager to learn more about how Adventist families experience the coming out of one of their family members. To that end, the NAD has partnered with Adventist researchers at Andrews University and the University of Southern Mississippi to understand the perspectives of parents whose young adults have recently (within the past 15 years) come out as LGBT+. If you are an Adventist parent who fits these criteria, we invite you to go the following link and complete the survey:

We would also invite you to share this link with others you may know who have similar circumstances. Thank you!
