The spiritual insights and motivation that led your congregation to welcome LGBTQ people can also help you expand your ministries in intersectional ways. After all, there are many ways in which we are called to improve our own communities and our world. CLGS has a resource, An Expansive Welcome, designed to spark conversations in congregations about intersectional ministry options that can have a big impact on the world. We raise issues of:

  • Gender identity
  • Youth
  • Immigration and Asylum
  • Climate Justice
  • Addressing Hate
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Housing
  • Incarceration and Detention

For each of these areas, we offer questions to help a congregation decide if this is something they feel called to address. We also have a list of best practices and suggestions for implementing new ministries in these areas. Check it out today and get some new conversations started!
