We're so excited to announce the members of The Reformation Project's fourth annual leadership development cohort for LGBTQ Christians and allies.
This year's cohort will gather in person in Los Angeles from April 5-8, 2017, but they're already deeply engaged in a three-month study period leading up to the gathering. During this time, they are:
- Studying leading works of theology from both affirming and non-affirming biblical scholars
- Delving into the intersections of racial identity and racial justice in the LGBT inclusion movement
- Learning about effective approaches to community organizing
At the cohort in April, our class of reformers will learn from The Reformation Project's staff, respected theologians like Dr. Jim Brownson and Dr. Cheryl Anderson, and build friendships and connections that will last for a long time to come. They'll complete their training on affirming theology, intersectionality, and community organizing, and then they'll return to their hometowns to be outspoken, effective advocates for LGBT inclusion in their churches and broader faith communities. Read the bios below to get to know our new, remarkable group of reformers, and feel free to reach out to them if you're in their area or want to get connected.
