The Mission of the Disciples LGBTQ+ Alliance – AllianceQ is to join in God’s work of transforming the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) into a just and inclusive church that welcomes persons of all gender expressions and sexual identities into the full life and leadership of the church. AllianceQ is setting a place at the table for all, so all can flourish. AllianceQ focuses its work on the following: Open & Affirming Ministry, Education, Worship, Pastoral Care, and Intersectional Justice.
It was at the 1977 General Assembly in Kansas City that the late Carol Blakely of Caldwell, Idaho, a Disciple mother of a gay son, broke silence and called all Disciples to name the reality that LGBTQ+ and affirming persons are our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, [siblings], parents, congregants, pastors and staff. General resolutions GA-1327 and GA-1929 called the church to widen the welcome. We have the challenge and opportunity to live into this call today.
Your support of AllianceQ will equip us to engage more directly and deeply with congregations and clergy with expanded resources and capacity for meaningful connection so churches and queer clergy can live fully into their respective calls for ministry. Join us in widening the welcome.
