Welcome and Included

September 11, 2017 - September 13, 2017

This retreat, held from Monday, September 11- Tuesday, September 12, 2017, with an extension until Wednesday, September 13 for Lutheran Outdoor Ministry professionals, will guide church leaders and LOM 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 LOM 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
