About the author:
My name is David J. Harvey. I was raised in Lewistown, Montana where I attended an Assembly of God church. I attended Northwest Bible College in Kirkland, Washington from 1974 until 1976. I continued my education at Evangel
University in Springfield, Missouri where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Education in 1979. I have served in many churches throughout the United States in a pastoral position. Eventually I moved to San Jose, California in 1986 to begin the quest to discover if the Bible and Homosexuality were compatible.
I am the founding pastor of Celebration Of Faith, Praise and Worship Center in San Jose, California, which was established in September 1994.
Celebration of Faith is a non-denominational
ministry of reconciliation, proclaiming liberation to all people.
I have worked in various non-profit organizations and completed my Master's program in Business Management
I began full time ministry in 1975 as a Youth and Music Minister in the Assemblies of God church in Kenmore, Washington while attending Northwest Bible College. I continued to serve in various Assemblies of God churches in Washington State, Kansas, Montana, and California until founding Celebration of Faith in l994. I was honored to be chosen as the Grand Marshall of
the 2007 San Jose Pride festival because of my many contributions to the LGBT community and various non-profit organizations.
Celebration of Faith is a member of the Allies of Christian Churches, T.E.N. (The Evangelical Network), Coalition of
Welcoming Congregations, and the Santa Clara Council of Churches.
Celebration of Faith currently meets at the Billy DeFrank Community Center, 938 The Alameda, San Jose, California.

A Gay Pastor's Personal Journey To Acceptance! A study for ALL people
Mr David J Harvey
David J. Harvey presents his personal and sometimes controversial treatment of homosexuality throughout the Scriptures. This book was born from years of research, study and teaching on the topic of Homosexuality, and what the Bible really says about it.
Straight people will gain a fresh understanding of the journey that many gay Christians encounter, and gay and lesbians Christians will find a companion who identifies with their hurt and rejection from the mainline churches across the country.
While there is much confusion in the Christian world as to what the Bible says about homosexuality, there is great clarity about how Jesus instructed His followers to walk in love.
Hopefully, you will find renewed acceptance in your faith and a reason to celebrate your sexuality as you read how you are created; to be the gay or straight child of God. You too can find that Wondrous Love!
