Two Posture Shift Sessions at Revoice 2019
Last July, the 1st annual conference of Revoice took place in St. Louis, MO, drawing more than 400 attendees. Those who came included pastors, family members, and LGBT+ loved ones who came to find encouragement and community for LGBT+/SSA Christians who hold to a traditional biblical ethic. At the conference, Bill presented the missiological approach of Posture Shift in a workshop last year.
This year, Bill will be presenting two workshops, including a pre-conference Posture Shift Seminar and a workshop based off Lead Them Home’s leading print resource, Guiding Families of LGBT+ Loved Ones, geared toward helping parents and families attending the conference.
Other members of the Lead Them Home team will also be attending including Meg Baatz, Director of Communication & Creative Design, who will be presenting a workshop titled “Living in Christian Community as a Nonstraight Person.” Ray Low, a member of our volunteer team, will also be presenting a workshop called, “My Story is Sacred.”
Recap of Revoice 2018
Last year as the conference approached, it drew both criticism and defense from influential Evangelical leaders especially in regards to its use of LGBT+ identity language and incorporation of speakers who identify as LGBT+. Weighing in on the conversation, Bill offered a detailed explanation regarding it in our news titled, “About Those Revoice people” which explained why Lead Them Home decided to present at the conference in the midst of the controversy.
Despite the criticism, Revoice was described by many attendees as a time of Spirit-filled worship and impactful teaching, and the Posture Shift workshop turned out to be a packed house. Read the full recap of the event here.
We are excited to see the impact that will come from all of Lead Them Home and our members’ participation in the conference!
