Thanks be to God for the group of advocates for LGBT inclusiveness who gathered in Oakland, New Jersey last weekend.  Their hunger to learn, to share their experiences, and to further commit to the welcome and affirmation of LGBT persons in their congregations was palpable and contagious.  Further, participants from RCA congregations shared a deeply inspiring resolve to partner in RfA’s mission of full LGBT inclusion in the life and ministry of the Reformed Church in America.   God is still speaking!

If you would like to participate in building an inclusive church, consider registering for one of the BIC trainings this fall in Grand Rapids, MI or Pella, IA.  For all the information, go to, or contact us at (201) 364-4538.
