From RMN coalition partner: The Institute for Welcoming Resources
Welcome one another therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. – Romans 15:7
The Welcoming Process
As you consider how best to help your congregation or organization become Welcoming of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and families, we highly recommend that you create a planful, strategic, well-thought Welcoming Process. In order to create a good Welcoming Process, we recommend the following resources:
Building an Inclusive Church: A Welcoming Toolkit
A Welcoming Toolkit 2.0 – Updated and greatly expanded!
Drawing upon twenty five years of experience within a variety of Christian denominations, this Toolkit is a step-by-step guide to help facilitate a Welcoming Process in your local congregation. Biblically and theologically based, it uses tools of relational organizing, congregational assessment, conflict management and change theory.

Building an Inclusive Church Trainings
Additionally, we highly recommend you attend a Building an Inclusive Church training which will give you the skills and resources to help you facilitate a Welcoming Process in your local congregation. For more information on the Building an Inclusive Church trainings, follow the link below.
