Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Training Scheduled in Bloomington, IL

A Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit Training has been scheduled for Saturday, April 28 at First Christian Church in Bloomington, IL.

Using the Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit, this workshop will provide the tools that empower congregations to create a grace filled, respectful process towards becoming Open & Affirming, a process uniquely designed for each congregation’s specific needs.

This day-long workshop will provide in-depth and hands on training in the tools of Graceful Engagement, One to One Conversations, Storytelling, Framing, and more. These tools are also powerfully useful in many other contexts.

Rev. Dr. Mark Johnston, Executive Director of Alliance Q’s Open & Affirming Ministry Program, will lead this workshop.

Building an Inclusive Church 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 necessary conversations toward a fully inclusive church.

You can register for this seminar (starting later this month) on the website of the Christian Church in Illinois Wisconsin.
