Love Welcome conference, Oct. 20-21, 2017

The 221st (2014) General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) adopted a resolution titled “The Global Crisis for LGBT People and Their Families: A Presbyterian Church (USA) Response.” The resolution acknowledges the illegality of homosexuality in 81 countries and the persecution LGBT persons face across the globe. The resolution also encourages Presbyterians to hold in prayer vulnerable LGBT persons around the world and to consider how they can provide support.

The Love Welcome conference was born out of this call to action by the denomination combined with the deep commitment by First Presbyterian Church to support both refugee and LGBTQ communities. Over the course of the two days, participants will learn about the speci c challenges facing LGBTQ refugees and asylum seekers and examine a variety of ways in which congregations can provide support.
