Internal Welcome and External Witness: LGBTQ Youth Ministry
April 19, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In your local communities and congregations, 20% of GenZ now identify as part of the LGBTQ community. Therefore, it is important to know what are the particular nuances of youth ministry with and for LGBTQ youth. Deacon Murray will speak about LGBTQ inclusion in our youth ministries, and how to be specifically welcoming of those who are in the process of discovering their sexual and gender identities. We will also explore the theology and values that should undergird LGBTQ youth ministry, pushing us beyond our own congregational settings, out into the wider world.
