In July 2018, For Everyone Born drew hundreds of United Methodists for community, worship, and organizing, and to live out what it means to be a church where all are welcome and celebrated. The conference took place in St. Louis, MO. United Methodists joined for a weekend full of inspiration, connection, and a vision of what the church could be. In addition to great worship and fellowship, participants experienced two days of engaging workshops, heard from Commission on A Way Forward (CoWF) members about their experience, met with their jurisdictional teams, and began planning their presence and witness at General Conference in February 2019.

LYNC partner organizations for For Everyone Born are: Affirmation, Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA), Methodists in New Directions (MIND), Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus (UMQCC), and Western Methodist Justice Movement (WMJM).

Stay focused, stay grounded, and stay fired-up.
