Brooke Eden

Brooke Eden Special Performance at The Reformation Project Conference Nashville 2023

Brooke shares, “The Reformation Project is one that’s near and dear to my heart. As someone who grew up in the church and later realized I was queer, I know the importance of getting down to the truth of what God’s word is all about. The Reformation Project is bringing truth and hope to so many families across the world and I’m honored to be a part of this important conversation in Nashville.”

Brooke has become a critically acclaimed force to be reckoned with in Nashville. Her new EP, “Outlaw Love,” has made a splash since she debuted it on the Today Show earlier this summer. She has shared the stage with Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Tim McGraw, Kane Brown, and Keith Urban. Join us as she rocks the stage at Reconcile and Reform Conference 2023!

Ty Herndon

Ty Herndon, performer at Reconcile and Reform 2023

Ty says, “Whenever someone questions whether you can be both a part of the LGBTQ community and a follower of Christ, I send them the Matthew Vines book, God and the Gay Christian. I know first hand it has changed the hearts and minds of countless people, and I am so honored to be a part of this event and share my story—and of course a little country music.”

Grammy-nominated and Dove Award winning, Ty’s voice is stronger than it’s ever been, and he’s using it to make a difference. In 2020, he created the Foundation For Love & Acceptance to further his work on behalf of LGBTQ acceptance and lends his time and talent to MusiCares, which has supported Ty through his own struggles and supports those in the music industry with a safety net of services.

Is This For Me?

Are you a Christian who supports the LGBTQ community but who wishes that your church were as supportive as you are? Do you feel ill-equipped to have difficult conversations with Christian family and friends⁠ about their views on this topic? Is it time to talk to your pastor and church leaders about their views and their interpretation of Scripture when it comes to same-sex relationships and transgender people?

Join us for The Reformation Project’s Reconcile and Reform Conference to help you become a more confident and effective advocate for LGBTQ inclusion in your church. Speaking up about LGBTQ inclusion can be daunting and isolating. Come learn more about Scripture and LGBTQ inclusion, meet other affirming Christians from around the country and the world, and hear from a diverse group of leading voices in this conversation at our conference!

Whether you are LGBTQ or straight, you are welcome at the Reconcile and Reform Conference. Whether you are LGBTQ-affirming or not, if you are open to learning more, we would love to have you.
