About Messy Truth

The author of Messy Grace, a former pastor raised by LGBTQ parents, who as a child experienced the bitterness of some Christians, shows you how to lead an organization to create a sense of belonging for all individuals.

People find and follow Jesus better in community than in isolation. But shifts in societal norms, conflicting opinions, inaccurate scriptural interpretations, and personal emotions have made leaders uncertain of how to welcome those who relate in some way as LGBTQ.

In Messy Truth, Caleb Kaltenbach shows how leaders of churches, ministries, and organizations can create belonging without sacrificing theological convictions. You'll learn how to design involvement systems, increase empathy, engage in pivotal truth conversations, and develop intentional plans and policies as they relate to LGBTQ. Best of all, this messy process has a vital outcome for those it helps: a growing relationship with Jesus.
