Join us for a day of celebration and learning together as the beloved, rainbow community of God.

Beyond Binaries is a day to celebrate the gifts of the Queer community to the church. Come away with inspiration and resources for the work of creating radically inclusive churches.

Whether you are a church leader or simply interested in this work, join the conversation with Queer Christians and other affirming churches. Come with an open heart, a curious mind, and a creative spirit as we listen for how the Spirit is moving us beyond binaries.
