In her early 20s, Elizabeth Woning “came out” as a lesbian and embraced the LGBTQ community. She attended a Presbyterian (USA) seminary openly lesbian and did ministry within the LGBTQ community. Over time, her faith led her to question her sexuality as a lesbian, which ultimately led to a change in her sexual experience. Today Elizabeth no longer experiences same sex attraction and is married to her husband, Doug, of 13 years. She teaches at the Bethel School of Ministry and is co-founder of Equipped to Love and CHANGED, which focus upon sexual identity and life after LGBTQIA+. Elizabeth holds a Master’s Degree in Theology and is a licensed pastor at Bethel Church. She serves Moral Revolution as an author, lecturer and consultant.
