The Church as a Safe Sanctuary
In June, the North Texas Annual Conference passed a resolution on trans youth and their families. This resolution resolved that “our churches in the North Texas Conference will be safe sanctuaries for trans children, youth, and their families.”
The NTC will host a Zoom webinar entitled "The Church as a Safe Sanctuary for Trans Children, Youth, and their Families." Rev. Geoffrey Moore and Rev. Heather Gottas will present and facilitate the discussion.
The webinar will equip local church leaders to live into what this resolution calls for by offering:
- A brief overview of the challenges faced by trans youth and their families in our state
- Dos and don’ts for being in ministry with trans youth and their families
- Space for leaders to discuss what providing safe sanctuary might look like in their contexts
- Resources for further learning
