Who We Are

Cinnamon Waffles

The Cinnamon Waffles was originally formed as a sub-group of the Q Christian Fellowship that includes anyone born between 1987 and 1991. IN recent years, the community has grown beyond our parent organization to include many who have never affiliated with QCF. We include members from just about every category of the LGBTQIA+ label and allies, all from a variety of faith backgrounds and traditions.

Our Mission

The mission of the Cinnamon Waffles is to foster a safe community, rooted in the love of Jesus Christ, offering love, support, and fellowship for the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies at the intersection of faith, sexuality, and gender identity.

Ok, but what's with the name??

Many people are eager to learn about the exciting history of the Cinnamon Waffles. No, we're not talking about the tasty snacks first concocted by the ancient Athenians millenia ago, but the awesome group of GCNers born between 1987 and 1991. People are often curious about how we came to use the name "Cinnamon Waffles" to describe ourselves.

In 2007, our newly formed age group was in need of a name. Our name would define us and say something about our generation. Some of the suggestions included the "Mighty Morphers", "We are the 90s", and "The ORIGINAL Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!!!" 

A member by the name of Daniel suggested that we call ourselves "those crazy in your face kids who are too cool for school and all that and a bag of chips." The acronym "Ciyfk-Watc-Fsataaboc" was born, which was then shortened to CWF. Crystal, another member, expanded this acronym slightly to something more pronounceable: CiWaFs. Our friend Daniel then expanded the acronym again to "Cinnamon Waffles." The name has stuck, and we are very proud of it. 

wait... I thought it was the GCN Cinnamon Waffles?

You're correct, it was! The organization we are affiliated with was originally called the Gay Christian Network (GCN). As of January 18, 2018, the organization changed its name to the Q Christian Fellowship to be more inclusive.
