Event description
Affirming Leaders Day in Calgary - a one day gathering focused on fostering LGBTQ2S+ inclusivity and engagement in faith communities.

About this Event

Special Guest Keynote!

Austen Hartke, author of: Transforming, The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians, will be our keynote guest and will lead a workshop!


About Affirming Leaders Day:

Most of us have heard of 'Affirming' faith communities, or we may even be part of one. These communities commit to being fully inclusive of LGBTQ2S+ folks in all areas of church life.

But discerning, being in process, and becoming inclusive or affirming has its own joys and challenges, and leadership in these intersections can feel daunting or isolating.

How do we become better advocates, allies, and leaders?

How do we rekindle and connect with others along the way, remembering that we aren't alone?

Join us for a chance to re-energize our individual and collective Affirming journeys through this fun and interactive one day gathering.

ALL individuals, clergy, staff, committee members, and volunteers from any faith background or denomination are welcome to attend. Whether you consider yourself a 'leader' or not, you definitely are, and you are warmly invited to attend.

Let's grow and connect alongside others who are interested in deepening and sharing their wisdom!
