Developing Inclusive Youth Ministry
In your ministry with youth and young adults do you ever wonder how you can make the space more welcoming for LGBTQIA+ students? Join the LGBTQIA+ Affirming Team of the Nebraska Synod for a 2 session discussion of Ross Murray’s book Made, Known, Loved: Developing LGBTQ-Inclusive Youth Ministry and conversation about the practical and spiritual ways to help the youth and young adults in your congregation feel more welcome, known, and loved. The 2 sessions will take place on zoom on Thursdays 8/12 and 8/19 from 1-2pm CDT. You are encouraged to purchase and read Made, Know, Loved: Developing LGBTQ-Inclusive Youth Ministry before attending these sessions, but reading the book is not required prior to the workshop. These sessions are open to anyone who works with youth and young adults: clergy, professional church staff, and congregational volunteers.
Check back for a registration link. Registration deadline is August 11. If you are interested in this discussion but the times don’t work, email LGBTQIA@nebraskasynod.org.
