The question of how to respond to the LGBTQ+ community is tearing our churches apart. Tensions are high, and the stakes are real. So how do we stay together when we don't agree? That's what we're exploring at the 2020 e3 Conference. 

Through plenary and breakout sessions, you'll  be equipped, encouraged, and empowered to take this conversation back to your home congregation, family, and community. You'll hear a range of speakers, from academic scholars of biblical text who have devoted their lives to studying scripture and its application in the 21st century, to parents who just want to love their LGBTQ+ children well. At every session, we will emphasize the need to approach this topic with grace and compassion, with a goal of staying together in community. 

Is this conference for me?

If you’re part of the LGBTQ+ community and looking for a place to belong, come to e3 and you’ll find it. If you’re a parent or family member of someone who identifies as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, please join us at e3. Are you a friend or ally? Come and get involved with CenterPeace!


And if you’re a pastor, elder or other church leader, there’s no better place for you to learn from trusted teachers how to examine scripture, extend hospitality, and embrace those in your reach who long for spiritual community.
