Candace is the last of five kids of a Southern Baptist minister, and is herself ordained through Gentle Spirit Christian Church of Atlanta, Georgia. She has worked in journalism and public relations for nearly 25 years. She founded Whosoever because "there were simply no good Christian magazines to read that didn't bash gays at some point." She currently serves as the assistant pastor at Garden of Grace United Church of Christ in Columbia, SC. She and her partner, Wanda, live in the sticks of South Carolina with way too many cats and dogs.
Rev. Paul Turner
Seeds of Hope
If you are need of pastoral guidance, or are having a crisis in your spiritual walk, Pastor Paul is the person to contact. Often he will use letters sent to him in his Seeds of Hope column. We are sensitive to the needs you may have for privacy and will not reveal your name or e-mail address if you write to Pastor Paul with your concerns.
Pastor Paul is the Vice President of Whosoever and serves as the senior pastor of Gentle Spirit Christian Church in Atlanta, Georgia. He lives with his partner of nearly 20 years, Billy, in Atlanta.
Erny Phipps is the co-moderator of Whosoever Prays, an e-mail community dedicated to praying for each other and praising God for blessings received.
Brought up in the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, Erny has been on a life-long journey to find God. He calls prayer his "only constant" during that search, so Whosoever Prays was a natural calling for him. Erny and his 7-year-old son, Ryan, live in Arizona.

A Little History About Us
Whosoever was founded as a bi-monthly magazine in June of 1996. Our first issue hit the newsstands in July. Subscribers grew to nearly 50 people by February of 1997, and the magazine was being carried in just over 30 bookstores from Georgia to California.
Financial pressures proved too great for the fledgling print version of the magazine and with the March/April 1997 issue we became an online magazine for gay, lesbian and bisexual Christians. [In November of 1997, we added transgender people to our outreach.]
Overhead online is far less, and with the responses we have received, we seem to be reaching far more people than the print version ever did in its short life.
We hope you'll stay awhile and check out each issue of Whosoever. Bookmark this site and return often.
