Virtual Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Training
Mar 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Building an Inclusive Church (BIC) trainings are for leaders in congregations which are considering becoming Open & Affirming and for those who would like to know more about supporting other congregations becoming O&A. This training will hone your skills and give you knowledge about how to help congregations through those tough conversations toward a more fully inclusive church. AllianceQ offers different registration options to meet the financial needs of attendees and ministries. We want to share the tools with you and your ministry. Contact us for group rates or scholarships as needed. Select your registration type below and make your payment. When PayPal displays your receipt on the screen, click “return to merchant” to immediately be directed to our detailed registration form to select your training date. Note you do not need to have a PayPal account. You can select “pay with debit or credit card.”
Registration Type
If you prefer to send payment by mail or need to register multiple individuals, use this form: BIC Training Registration with Mailed Payment or Multiple Participants. Each training is limited to the first 24 participants. Please note that a training may be cancelled if there are fewer than 8 participants. In this case, payments will be applied to another training date of your choice. Upon receipt of payment and the registration form, you will be provided with a Training Welcome Packet, Congregational Assessment Tool and The Toolkit Overview. You will also receive a secure Zoom meeting link for the selected training. Here we grow…
A Building an Inclusive Church (BIC) training helps you design and implement a journey for your faith community to publicly and intentionally welcome people of all gender expressions and sexual orientations. The training empowers congregations to create a grace-filled process towards becoming Open & Affirming, a process uniquely designed for the needs of each community. Using the Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit, you will be equipped to deepen relationships throughout your faith community rather than spark debate or division. The Toolkit is an ecumenical resource with best practices, in its third edition developed by numerous Welcoming Church partners. Here is a direct link to The Toolkit, the primary resource for becoming Open & Affirming. AllianceQ will journey with you throughout your process and you have access to numerous resources for deeper understanding.
Share this flyer!
The Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Training is for those beginning the welcoming journey. Additional conversations and educational events will challenge and further equip us to live into our open & affirming identity. Our calendar features other opportunities for learning and connection. You can also request a speaker or presentation here. (form available soon)
