1. Survey Introduction

The North American Division (NAD) of Seventh-day Adventists is eager to learn more about how SDA families experience the coming out of one of their family members. To that end, the NAD has partnered with Andrews University and the University of Southern Mississippi to understand the perspectives of parents whose young adults have recently (within the past 15 years) come out as LGBTQAI+.

This survey should take no more than 30 minutes of your time and yet will yield a great deal of important information for the Seventh-day Adventist church and its ministries. Please be assured that your answers will be anonymous, that is, no one will be able to identify you as a participant in this study or know what your answers to the questions are. Your consent to participate in this study is understood when you hit the "next" button.
