Linda Seiler

Director of Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at Purdue University

Linda Seiler struggled with transgender issues and same-sex attractions until age 32 when, after an 11-year journey towards healing, she finally experienced the freedom Jesus died to give her. Today, she is living the dream, content in a female body and wholly attracted to men. Called of God to equip the body of Christ regarding homosexuality, Linda shares candidly from her own struggles coupled with a strong Scriptural foundation and the latest scientific research regarding the origins of homosexuality.

The training seminar “Compassion without Compromise: A Christian Response to Homosexuality” is based on her master’s thesis which she completed in May 2014. Linda is currently pursuing her PhD at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary to develop further expertise on homosexuality in order to equip the body of Christ in this crucial hour. Linda is an ordained Assembly of God minister and serves as the director of Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at Purdue University. She is an avid golfer, dark chocolate lover, and has two kittens, Boaz and Tabitha

John Velsor is the lead pastor for North Star Community Church in Coon Rapids, MN.

John and his wife Shannon spent five years as youth pastors in Chicago, Illinois. They saw God do great things in their ministry, growing it from 30 students to several hundred weekly. They also saw numerous young people raised up into full time ministry. Early in 2010, God placed a dream in their hearts to plant a church in Minnesota, Shannon’s home state. They relocated, started talking to friends and family about their future church, and before they knew it, their dream became a reality. On Sunday, February 13th, 2011, North Star launched it’s first service in a movie theater.

John and Shannon have two boys, Aiden and Asher.
