The first will be April 16th-18th and the second will be May 21st-23rd.

Building an Inclusive Church Training
May 22 @ 11:00 am – 4:30 pm

Building an Inclusive Church (BIC) training helps you design and implement a journey for your faith community to publicly and intentionally welcome people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. Building an Inclusive Church equips you with ways to create dialogue, deepening relationships throughout your faith community rather than sparking debate and division.

To help prevent the spread of Covid-19 all BIC trainings will be held online through Zoom. ReconcilingWorks is grateful to still be able to support this holy ministry as we best care for ourselves and one another.
