Be On The Growing Edge of Ministry
Creating safe and caring places for transgender people and their families in both church and society is one of the most pressing challenges and opportunities for the Christian faith, community life and church growth today. In this conference, you’ll learn from transgender persons, educators and pastors with helpful experiences in providing pastoral care to transgender people and their families. By participating in this conference, you will gain insight, language and practical skills to enable you to offer pastoral care and affirming transgender ministry. Join the quest to share the Good News. This unique conference will take place October 21-23, 2018 in Charlottesville, Virginia at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
