Hi, I’m Bailey! Thanks for being here.

This is a space for you, whoever you are. Here, I write about the intersection of faith and sexuality, Jesus, and a fully inclusive Church.

Don’t forget to keep in touch with email updates here, and feel free to drop me a note or say hi on social media. I can’t wait to meet you!

Hi, I’m Bailey.

Bailey Bio Photo

My name is Bailey Jo Welch, and I am a Christian non-fiction writer. I am also a LGBTQ advocate and creator of Making Room on the Pew: a book meant to begin a movement focused on fostering reconciliation between the LGBTQ community and the conservative Christian Church through respectful, grace-filled conversation about faith, the Bible, and sexual orientation.

A few of my favorite things are books, hiking, coffee and Mexican food. In pressing through hard seasons of life, I have joyfully (and surprisingly!) discovered the glory of God everywhere, especially in life on the water and around the table.

I write for a few places online; take a look here.

If you’d like to talk about the intersection of faith and sexuality, or you would like to learn how to make your church more welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community, head over here.

Stay in touch with updates by entering your email here! I send out monthly e-newsletters letting you know where I’ve been published that month, links to the blog posts I wrote in case you missed them, and the books I’ve been reading. I promise not to sell your information or spam you with unnecessary emails.

I’d love to hear from you, so come say hi! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, or drop me a note here.
