Parents Reconciling Network (PRN)
Parents Reconciling Network (PRN) is an organization of United Methodist parents of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer children.
PRN began as an informal group in 1999 when Bruce and Virginia (Ginny) Hilton, both United Methodist pastors and parents of a gay child, brought parents together. Their purpose was to present a visible witness of parents in support of ending the denomination’s anti-homosexual stance and providing their homosexual children the same rights as heterosexual United Methodists at The United Methodist Church’s 2000 General Conference.
Members of the PRN Board are available to offer help and support to parents of LGBTQ children. Feel free to contact them with your questions.

God is calling each of us, especially pastors, to give counsel to parents and other family members of persons who are gay , lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). For this reason, PRN has written the brochures below. We invite you to read them and share them with others as you see the need. All are in PDF format and may be reprinted as needed.
