Learn How You Can Build a Church Where All Are Welcome!

You might be thinking “My congregation isn’t ready to become Open & Affirming yet,” or perhaps you are well aware that it’s time for your congregation to move forward on the journey to Open & Affirming.

Perhaps you’re unsure. How to know? Are you reading this newsletter article? Yes? Are you thinking “I wish my congregation were Open & Affirming?” Yes? Then – Yes! It’s time for you to learn how you can build a church where all are welcome!

The Building an Inclusive Church Toolkit is the way to get there, and a Toolkit Training is the where you need to be.

The next Toolkit Training available is on April 28 in Bloomington, IL. Here’s the information you need about the training, along with a flyer that you can use to spread the word.

You can register for this training here.

The Building an Inclusive Church Training is perfect for pastors and church leaders who want to guide their church further along the welcoming journey towards becoming Open & Affirming.

This training is great for people who want to team up with AllianceQ as part of a regional team to bring more welcome to the churches in your region. Interested? Contact Mark Johnston at for more information.
