Accompanying LGBTQ+ Youth

Accompanying LGBTQ+ Youth

Introduction

In this course, we will we will be providing tools to help youth leaders accompany, work with, and support LGBTQ+ young people.

This is designed such that each section may be completed in one gathering. If every section were to be completed, with the group meeting weekly, this course would take six weeks to complete. It is also possible to complete the course in a shorter period of time by combining sections based on your team’s availability. Similarly, it could be expanded, and the focal Scripture passages—merely used here as a discussion starter, and a backdrop for the youth ministry topics— could be used as a jumping off point for a whole Bible study for each gathering. We are hopeful that the person leading this effort will feel free to adapt what is provided to their particular community’s needs.
