Irene Guerrero - Board Advisor / Elder

Irene grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, as a queer person, she always felt alone. Irene felt there was something missing in her life. As a child, Irene attended a United Methodist church where they learned about God's love, but there was still something missing. Irene felt that being a queer person, she was not going to be accepted so as a teen and later as an adult, Irene would stay home on Sundays. Irene discovered via Facebook that there was an open and affirming church in Harlingen, Tx. Irene remembers walking in through MCCC doors and feeling a great peace and acceptance . Fast forward to the present day, Irene has found herself becoming a Board Advisor. As an advisor, Irene plans to put the experience she brings from other churches to help grow the Kingdom of God. Irene will continue to bring MCCC’s mission to be a light in the dark for many LGBTQ  people (along with fellow allies) who ask and wonder if God's love is for them ... YES it is!
