Supports for LGBTQ+ clergy

Help our ministry intern who is helping all of us.

Alysha Laperche is collecting information from LGBTQ+ clergy in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in order to cultivate greater supports for this group.

Current and future LGBTQ+ clergy in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) are invited to fill out this needs assessment. Please share this invitation and link.

Alysha explains that, “the purpose of this needs assessment is to provide leaders of Disciples AllianceQ with a snapshot of current stressors of, support needed by, and changes invited by current and future LGBTQ+ clergy in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  With this data, Disciples AllianceQ can map out an informed course of action for supporting LGBTQ+ Disciples clergy by forming a strategy for offering positive and sustainable programming, resources, etc. …

We greatly appreciate your time, authenticity, bravery, and existence and look forward to hearing from you on how we might best support and partner with you.”
