Joel Hollier is an Australian former pastor who prominently taught that celibacy was the only option for LGBTQ+ Christians. As a gay man himself, he became a prominent voice in Australia promoting this view. Through many years of prayerful discernment, revisiting the Bible and discovering new ways of thinking, Joel’s mind on this topic was slowly changed and he lost everything. Today, he is passionate about helping people see that their identity is most beautifully captured when we see ourselves as children of God, and that being LGBT can be a glorious part of this beauty.
Joel lives in Sydney, Australia and has degrees in Social Work and Theology. He is completing a PhD on the vital place of LGBT people in the evangelical church.
