Adventures in Space-Making with the Rev. Phiwa Langeni

About this Event

Zoom | April 7 | 12 - 1:30 pm EDT

If you've ever wondered about ways to better engage with LGBTQ+ youth in your setting, you'll want to join this webinar as the Rev. Phiwa Langeni shares about their experiences in youth ministry and, most recently, founding Salus Center, Lansing, Michigan's only LGBTQ+ resource and community center. In addition to learning practical tips on language, pronouns, and other queer-related issues, you'll gain insights on simple changes you can make in your own practices to create space for LGBTQ+ youth and others you intend to serve. The interactivity built into the presentation aims to make room for you to leave with tidbits that you can directly apply to your setting.

As a queer, Black, trans person from an immigrant family, the Rev. Phiwa Langeni is quite skilled at detecting and decreasing various societal gaps, especially with/for those with multiple minoritized identities. Since ordination in 2011, Phiwa has served in just about every local church setting possible: a thriving progressive church, multi-charge rural churches, a large suburban church, small churches deeply rooted in political and social justice, a new church start/nonprofit hybrid. They currently serve as the Ambassador for Innovation and Engagement in the Center for Analytics, Research & Development, and Data of the United Church of Christ. Phiwa is the solo parent of an adult daughter who challenges them in brilliance and beauty. In their free time, Phiwa enjoys reading, upcycling, 90s R&B, dad jokes, and creating all manner of things.
