She has a passion for giving voice to those who are searching for belonging, community, and hope. Becka is daily learning what it means to be an advocate for intentional and radical community, LGBTQIA2S+ rights, women in leadership, and racial justice. One of many things that Becka has discovered on her journey is that when we tie our beliefs to absolutes we live in constant fear of letting go. Finding permission to be who we were created to be often means letting go of those absolutes.
