Daniel Forschner

HIV & AIDS

I am passionate about helping people heal from past hurts and grow closer to Christ.  As a child I experienced the tragic loss of my sister and violent sexual abuse at the hands of a family member.  After two failed marriages, I embraced the homosexual lifestyle for many years.  In 1998, shortly after giving my life to Christ, I was diagnosed with HIV.  Over the years I have watched many people that I cared about lose the battle with HIV as my own health has continued to deteriorate.  Bringing more than two decades of experience as a therapist, I am eager to help those that struggle with homosexuality and those with HIV find the hope and healing that only God can provide.  

In spite of my battle with HIV, I serve in multiple capacities within my local church in Queens, NY and have served within the Strength in Weakness ministry since 2010.  I mentor and help several men in my local congregation and all over the world.
