Mission & History


Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN) equips and mobilizes United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.


The language of our mission comes from the United Methodist baptismal vow, and that’s our charge. Simply put, we work to advance justice and inclusion for all LGBTQ people in The United Methodist Church and beyond.

Since 1984, RMN has worked to transform hearts, churches, and communities. We do that through grassroots organizing, resourcing and educating, denomination-level change-making, pastoral care, and working with you: faithful people hopeful for a reconciled Church.

RMN began as a faith-based response to institutionalized homophobia braided into the fabric of The United Methodist Church. Now, over 30 years later, the Reconciling movement spans four continents, 1,000+ churches, and 40,000+ individuals. And we’re still growing. Love is still growing.
