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.
The Toolkit is an ecumenical tool useful in congregations of all denominations – you are certainly welcome here!
