· Celebrate and worship together
· Deepen community & strengthen regional connections
· Hear visions, strategies, and learnings from different regions
· Training in Bible/religion, cultural issues and resources, gender and sexuality, e.g. Understanding Asian Christian Conservative Voices, How Different API Cultures View Homosexuality, Transgender Travelogue, Queering the Bible, Let's Talk about Sex, Resources for Congregational Education, and more!!!
N.B. This retreat focuses on creating LGBT-affirming ministries within the cultural framework of API communities. It will not address how faith communities can become multicultural when LGBT concerns seem to be the wedge issue.
