Become a Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation

Believe Out Loud Congregations

Invitation

Dear sisters & brothers:

Many unchurched lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender [LGBT] people in your community are spiritually searching. They are looking for a faith community where they will be welcomed and affirmed as beloved children of God. You can encourage them to visit and join your parish by becoming a Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation.

An Integrity Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation is a mission or parish of our denomination that publicly welcomes and affirms LGBT people and that has completed a simple, six-step process. (Click here for a printable brochure outlining this process.) If your parish qualifies, I invite you to register as an Integrity Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation.

Once your parish registers as a Integrity Believe Out Loud Congregation, you will be added to a national database of welcoming and affirming faith communities.

Thanks for considering this step toward fuller inclusion and wider evangelism.
