Welcomed and Included
February 19 - February 21
This retreat, held from Monday, February 19- Tuesday, February 20, 2018, with an extension until Wednesday, February 21 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.
