Monday, September 11 - Tuesday, September 12, 2017:  Welcomed and Included

(Extended to Wednesday, Sept. 13 for Camp Professionals)


This retreat will guide church leaders and camp professionals in best practices for ministry with youth, young adults and their families that identify as LGBTQ. Topics surrounding gender and sexual orientation are big in society but avoided in many churches and camps. By providing a safe space to educate and create dialogue, church leaders and camp professionals can begin to wrap their heads around what the youth and young adults (and their families) need and how we can respond with welcome and inclusion.  For more information, including a biography of the facilitator and registration details, go to http://cjhcenter.org/Welcomed. 

This event is endorsed by Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (LOM). If you are an LOM member and need scholarship assistance, please contact Randy Youngquist-Thurow at eventscoordinator@lomnetwork.org.
