Building an Inclusive Church workshop
November 4, 2017$30
The Disciples LGBTQ+ Alliance is offering a Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Training at Compton Heights Christian Church in St. Louis on Saturday, Nov. 4.
Using the Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit, this workshop will provide the tools that empower congregations to create a grace filled, respectful process towards becoming Open & Affirming, a process uniquely designed for each congregation’s specific needs.
This day-long workshop will provide in-depth and hands on training in the tools of Graceful Engagement, One to One Conversations, Storytelling, Framing, and more. These tools are also powerfully useful in many other contexts.
Rev. Dr. Mark Johnston, Executive Director of Alliance Q’s Open & Affirming Ministry Program, will lead this workshop.
Your church doesn’t have to be “ready” to become Open & Affirming to benefit from this training. This training will hone your skills and give you knowledge about how to help congregations through those tough conversations toward a fully inclusive church.
