Heidi Weaver is the Founder/Executive Director of LOVEboldly. She is a student at Asbury Theological Seminary, seeking her Masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. Heidi has spent 5 years practicing intentional Christ-like presence in the LGBT community. Through her leadership of LOVEboldly, Heidi aims to empower those who identify as LGBT, Christian, or both to honor the worth and dignity of the ‘other’, sacrifice self and meet the needs of others, dialogue with one another, and restore relationships of reconciliation with self, others, and God. She is passionate about empowering and equipping the LGBT community, faith communities, pastors, and laypersons to step towards intentional Christ-like engagement with one another while providing safe spaces for LGBT Christians to grow in their faith.
