Event description

Description

Are you a ministry leader looking to engage more compassionately with LGBTQ+ people​ in your congregation and community​?​ Do you desire to emulate Christ’s incarnational love without compromising deeply held beliefs on sexuality? This training is designed to equip leaders to take practical steps towards loving the LGBTQ+ people in their community with a new boldness, while avoiding common pitfalls that erode relationships, harm faith communities, and damage those who identify as LGBTQ+. We will focus on adopting a missional lens towards our interactions with LGBTQ+ people, with a look into the history between the church and this community, their spiritual needs, and pastoral care implications.

Lunch is provided!

Our Presenter:

Heather

Heather Schmiedicke is the Program Coordinator for LOVEboldly. Heather felt called to bridge the gap between the conservative church and the LGBTQ+ community in 2012 when a beloved gay friend asked if her church was LGBT friendly and she instantly regretted her flippant response to his question. Since then, she has been doing incarnational ministry work with LGBTQ+ people in her own life, while helping lead her church to better postures towards LGBTQ+ folks. Heather serves on the Steering Team at Vineyard Life Church Brownsburg and sits on the board of directors for Walls Down, Inc., an organization dedicated to helping the conservative Christian church love LGBTQ+ people generously. She lives in Brownsburg, Indiana with her husband, Jamie, and their 2 baseball-playing sons, Kade and Carson.
