Tools for Open and Affirming Ministry

You do not have to be registered for the General Assembly to join us for our Pre-Assembly Events!

Join us for a day of deep dives into the grace-filled, community building tools used as part of an Open & Affirming process: Graceful Engagement, Storytelling, One-to-One Conversations, bringing the Bible to the conversation, and more.

These tools and skills are essential parts of the Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit, the material recommend by AllianceQ for congregations planning an Open & Affirming journey.

This Event will provide you tools useful in an Open & Affirming process and, indeed, in many conversations and decision making processes in a congregation.

You will find this workshop especially helpful if:

– You are a member of a regional Open & Affirming Team (or want to be) and want to increase you skills to assist congregations on their O&A journey.

– You might be interested in becoming an O&A trainer for AllianceQ and want an introduction to the tools and skills needed in an O&A process.

– You want to help lead your congregation in an O&A process.
