About 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 to schedule a conversation or group training.
