Many churches and church leaders are unsure of how to be inclusive of the LGBTQ community. This course will enable church leadership to create children, youth, and family ministries that can fully love and embrace LGBTQ people. Course materials will include short articles, videos, and class discussions. A Zoom component will be offered on Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time but is not required. Participants will learn basic LGBTQ vocabulary, learn about the lived experiences of individuals, and discuss authentic challenges and rewards connected to inclusion. This course will introduce learners to the Reconciling Ministries Network, which has been supporting LGBTQ persons in the church since 1984. According to their website, “over 30 years later, the Reconciling movement spans four continents, 1,000+ churches, and 40,000+ individuals.”
