  • Donate

    We are thankful that you are looking to financially support our work. Due to the response of our Open Letter to Judah Smith, we've temporarily suspended our donation page. While we have received $210 since its publishing, its important for us to convey that our request for clarity is not motivated by money. We will update this page as things continue to develop. Thanks! -Together in This Team

  • Why We Exist

    Together In This is a Non-Profit Organization seeking to facilitate the conversation on clarity, inclusivity, and the future of the church.


    In addition to resourcing and storytelling, we are actively engaging with pastors, church leaders, and church-goers to enlist them as advocates for clarity in our churches.


    We believe this can only be accomplished through mutual respect and constructive dialogue.


    Christina's story, and others like it are what inspire us.

    George Mekhail

    President, CEO

    George initially launched "Together In This" in June of 2016 while working as Executive Pastor of EastLake Community Church in Bothell, WA. In February of 2017, he left his role in order to dedicate his time to the work of Together In This. He is currently the Director of Innovation and Strategic Partnerships at The Riverside Church in the City of New York.


    Born in Cairo, Egypt, George's family immigrated to the U.S. in 1990. Growing up as a Coptic Christian before landing at various Evangelical Churches, has helped cultivate a desire for broader inclusivity in the church. His goal is to see the work of Together In This reach a broad audience in Evangelicalism through storytelling, resourcing and advocating for Clarity.


    You can invite George to speak at your church or event here.

    Gary Hale

    Gary launched Bayshore Community Church in the heart of the Silicon Valley in 2014. He took Bayshore through the conversation around sexuality & inclusion in the summer of 2016.
