Are you a Christian who wants to be better equipped to advocate on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in your faith community? Building off the momentum of our first major conference in Washington, D.C. last November, we are pleased to announce our second major conference will be taking place in Atlanta, GA on June 11-13, 2015. As amazing as the DC was, we expect the Atlanta conference will be even better! This two-and-a-half-day conference has two primary goals:
- Providing training and resources from Matthew Vines & many others on how to talk about the Bible and LGBT issues in constructive ways with non-LGBT-affirming Christians.
- Connecting LGBT-affirming Christians with like-minded people in their local areas to work together towards a more inclusive and affirming Church.
The conference will be a prime networking opportunity for all Christians who want to advance the dignity of LGBT people, especially Christians in non-affirming churches, denominations, or communities who seek to have more loving, fruitful, and informed conversations with non-affirming friends and family members.
For the first time, The Reformation Project will be hosting a day-long academy on racial justice from a Bible-based standpoint on Thursday, June 11. The academy will run from 9am-4:30pm, leading up to the start of the main program at 6:30pm.
Topics will include: Racial Justice 101, A Biblical Foundation for Racial Justice, The Intersection of Race & LGBT in US History, Our Place in Our Racial Structures, and Fishbowl Conversation about how Race & Ethnicity Shape the LGBT Experience.
