The Rev. Chris Davies

Chris S. Davies is the curator of Queer Clergy Trading Cards.  She is a local beer enthusiast, creative queer liturgist, and dreamer beyond the normative church.  She is a Connecticut native, a Cleveland transplant, and a wandering Irish Rover at heart.  This project is a project of revolutionary love, bringing visibility to queer clergy, using humor and irreverence to help change the conversation to highlight common awe (and absurdities) in faith work.  The project tells the stories of what oft is an isolating experience, and invites community beyond denomination.   Chris currently works for the United Church of Christ and is the point person for Congregational Assessment, Support, and Advancement at the National offices.  She loves Jesus and church deeply, and wants to help vision how we can transform the world, for the sake of the Gospel.

Jakob Hero is the Transgender Roundtable Coordinator at the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry at Pacific School of Religion and is a palliative care chaplain in Tampa, FL. He is an ordained minister in the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches.Jakob cares deeply about how queer folks treat each other and how we take care of ourselves—spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Jakob believes in disrupting the cycle of horizontal aggression that wounds our communities. He enjoys teaching, preaching, and metalsmithing.

Additionally, we are so grateful for the help of so many people along the way! Especially for the advice and support and encouragement from RB Calcagno, Lucy Webb, Heidi Carrington Heath, Elizabeth Dilley, Greg Briggs and Shea Zellweger.  We are blessed with a community who cares so deeply!  Many thanks, too, to Tom Groth, LLC, who is helping us navigate the legal hoops of making this happen.

Further, we have so much gratitude for they who have walked this path long before we have… they who have made it possible for us to be out and queer and doing such wonderful ministry all throughout the church universal and world.
