NextGen & Inclusiveness Ministries

NextGen and Inclusiveness Ministries works with our Young People's ministries to reach 14-25 year-old young people throughout the Mountain Sky Conference as a guide, mentor, advocate, and educator with and for a United Methodist Church that is fully inclusive of those who are LGBTQIAP+.

 

Are you, your congregation, youth group, or campus ministry interested in learning more about how to be inclusive to those who are LGBTQIAP+? Please reach out to our Designer of NextGen & Inclusiveness Ministries at nextgen@mtnskyumc.org to schedule a conversation or group training.

Upcoming Events:

Devoted with PRIDE: June 2021 Devotional Series

 

June is celebrated as Pride month for the 2SLGBTQ+ community and their allies. Celebrate pride this year through daily devotions created by clergy and laity throughout the Mountain Sky Conference. “Devoted with PRIDE,” these devotions offer a rich diversity of perspectives for how our faith can call us into better allyship and relationship with 2SLGBTQ+ folks in our midst. You can register at https://mtnsky-reg.brtapp.com/DevotedwithPRIDE to receive these devotions in your e-mail inbox throughout the month of June. These devotions will also be included on the Mountain Sky Ministry Crossroads as a Workshop. After joining the network (which you can do by clicking here), you can join the “Devoted with PRIDE June 2021” workshop to interact with others as you engage with each daily devotion. There will be a community debrief session hosted by Court VonLindern on June 27th at 7pm MST on Zoom. Details will be emailed closer to the event date.
