Gettysburg campus and livestream
8:30AM - 4:30PM
Region 8 invites you to join us for a day of LGBTQIA+ Equipping for Affirming and Inclusion work within congregation and community with participation by representatives from regional community partner organizations. This day of interactive learning, discussion, and resource is also highly suitable and welcoming to lay leaders and congregational teams. Newly revised for 2023, this training includes updated best practice vocabulary for healthy discussions, history of both LGBTQIA+ progress and historical trauma within the church, where to find the most up-to-date resources and how congregations have used them in successful growth and vitality movement, help to have challenging conversations even through resistance, and practical next steps for active allyship including discernment on becoming a Reconciling in Christ congregation or living into your RiC designation.
