A new Posture Shift leader certification initiative to train the next 600,000 leaders on biblically sound LGBT+ church inclusion
- Posture Shift “Get Trained” Track (non-licensure) is open to all who care for LGBT+ people.
- Train50 “Train Others” Track (licensure) is exclusively for church and ministry leaders.
- Please note that we only license organizations – not individuals.
- Licensed Organizations select their own Trainers (typically pastors, elders, or staff).
- Lay leaders are “eligible” if approved by Licensing Organization.
- Minimum Training Requisite: Attending 2-Day Posture Shift
Decades of mistreatment, rejection, exclusion, and misunderstanding from the Church have damaged relational trust and barred LGBT+ people from access to the Gospel. Many desire to love LGBT+ people well — yet most remain uncomfortable relating directly and effectively with LGBT+ loved ones.
With over a decade of time-tested experience training over 60,000 leaders, Posture Shift meets the need for practical, tangible, specific guidance in real-life care for LGBT+ individuals and their families in your church.
As we speak, a new church history is underway in which LGBT+ people experience rich, meaningful fellowship in their faith communities.
And now, it’s developing more swiftly than ever. Our new Train50 initiative will reach 600,000 Christians within the next 2 years.
This is where the rubber meets the road. Will you join us in writing a new church history?
