Parity Retreats and Conferences

made possible by the
E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation

Parity retreats:

Empower emerging and seated LGBTQ and allied faith leaders through cutting edge instruction in timely topics to enrich their ministry;

Connect faith leaders and allies with local and national leaders and organizations for increased impact, mutual support, collaboration and LGBTQ faith community strengthening;

Highlight LGBTQ faith leaders and their work to instruct and inspire attendees and allies with the latest, visionary theories, discoveries and strategies.

Attendees also gain techniques and skills to:

  • Expand and deepen personal and community ministries

  • Advance LGBTQ ministry and social justice efforts

  • Forge new connections and relationships with leaders and groups, locally and nationally, for sustained communication and collaboration
