Come to Convo 2018!

Have you ever been to a "Convo"? That's what we've come to call the Convocation of LGBTQIA+ people and their allies which in the past has been sponsored by the Reconciling Ministries Network and the Methodist Federation for Social Action. Convo is a chance to get your batteries recharged and your spirit strengthened as we head into the preparations for the special called General Conference next February, 2019.

This year's Convo is being sponsored by: these Love Your Neighbor Coalition (LYNC) partners: Affirmation, the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA), Methodists in New Directions (MIND), the United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus (UMQCC), Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), and the Western Methodist Justice Movement (WMJM).

Plans are firming up around the theme "For Everyone Born!" Registration is open now and early registration will end soon! So head on over to and get yourself registered!

There will be inspiring preachers, speakers, workshop leaders, and you! Cross-cultural and intersectional perspectives will be a part of the experience. Here's what the planners say about it:

For Everyone Born will draw hundreds of United Methodists for community, worship, organizing, and living out what it means to be a church where all are welcome and celebrated. The conference will take place in St. Louis, MO. Join us for a weekend that promises to be full of inspiration, connection, and a vision of what the church could be. In addition to great worship and fellowship, we will have two days of engaging workshops, hear from Commission on A Way Forward (CoWF) members about their experience, offer opportunities for jurisdictional teams to meet, and begin planning our presence and witness at General Conference in February 2019.
