Our mission here at QCFV is to promote the affirmation and inclusion in the Christian faith!

About us

 Queer Christian Family Values (QCFV) was founded in March 2018 by Alexander (Alex) Burchnell. He wanted a way to document his faith journey as an LGBT Christian. QCFV started out on Instagram with simple videos and pictures of Alex's transition and views on Christianity but quickly grew to what you see today. Now, QCFV is an outreach organization both virtually and local to the Johnson City, TN area. We are here to make a difference for those who are still holding onto or seeking Christ even when many churches tell them they are not welcome. Here you will find support, education, resources, Bible study, history, and so much more! We want to welcome you into the family and hope to see you in the comments! Have a great day!
