Parents in Process

Are you a Christian parent who has an LGBTQ child and lots of questions?

Are you wrestling with what it means to honor God and continue to love and embrace your child after they’ve come out?

If so, you are not alone on this journey—and you are invited to attend our Parents in Process program, designed for parents just like you, grounded in our shared love for God, the Bible, and the church.

Program Overview

The program will include the following:

  • A talk from Greg and Lynn McDonald, founders of the Embracing the Journey ministry and authors of Embracing the Journey: A Christian Parents’ Blueprint to Loving Your LGBTQ Child.
  • A panel of Christian parents of LGBTQ children will share about their own journeys after learning about their children’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
  • An LGBTQ Christian panel discussion will allow parents to ask LGBTQ individuals anything that is on their minds.
  • Small group discussions for participants to connect with one another and share the questions they’re processing.

The program will run from 10am to 5pm on Saturday, September 10, with an hour-long lunch break and two shorter breaks built in.

Registration costs $25 per household, but early registration is available for only $20 per household through August 12.

"As evangelical Christian parents, we were completely unprepared to respond when our son came out. If you could do it wrong, we did. At first, we tried to “fix” him, to no avail. But even in the earliest days of our journey, we clung to two absolutes: we would love God, and we would love our son. It has been 17 years since then and our learnings have been huge.

Today, we head up a ministry called Embracing the Journey, where we build bridges between LGBTQ individuals, their families, and the church, even when they seem at odds. We have walked with many hundreds of Christian parents with LGBTQ children, and we are excited to get to spend time with parents at The Reformation Project’s virtual Parents in Process this fall!"
