A Ministry of Make and Deepen Disciples

Embrace Webinar #18 – Tim Ciccone

Embrace for Youth Case Studies

Embrace for Youth Case Studies

These Embrace youth ministry case studies have been compiled by a team of Covenant youth workers. They invite quality discussion among leaders about how to better care for people in your churches and communities who identify as LGBTQ+. These case studies are based on real-life situations happening in our churches, camps, and ministry contexts across the ECC in North America. These are not designed to provide official answers to the questions raised. Rather, they are designed to help you explore and gain clarity about how you would like to approach complex situations in your unique context.
