A safe retreat for parents who want to understand their LGBTQ children’s experience and build strong relationships in community.
As a Christian parent, when your child comes out as LGBTQ, you face unique challenges. Where do you find support if your church won’t talk about it, your faith community rejects your child, and your own beliefs are now in question? The exponential growth of the parent presence at the annual Q Christian Conference speaks to the need that parents feel for support, resources, education, and a chance to share their stories with other parents in similar situations.
The purpose of this second annual Q Christian Parents’ Retreat is to focus intentionally on meeting those needs. Parents will have an opportunity to connect with other parents, to listen and be heard, to choose from workshops providing education and resources, and to join in worship with other parents of LGBTQ children. No matter what questions you have or where you are on this journey, you will be welcome here!
