Tim Rymel


An evangelical minister, Tim served as the Outreach Director for Love in Action, one of the oldest and most renowned ex-gay (reparative therapy) organizations in the world. The ministry helped ignite a fire in the early ‘90s that would unify the Christian right with unprecedented political power against the LGBT Community. Tim, considered a success of the ex-gay movement, spoke frequently around the country in colleges and churches on “freedom from homosexuality through Jesus Christ.” His world came crashing down when his wife left and he was forced to face his own reality. Tim embarked on a personal and painful journey to come to terms with his sexuality, life and faith. Tim is the author of the business book, Everything I Learned About Management I Learned from Having a Kindergartner (CK Publishing, 2012). He lives with his partner and two teenage daughters in Northern California.
