For Everyone Born

A national gathering of the Love Your Neighbor Coalition

July 26-29, 2018
St. Louis, MO

For Everyone Born will draw hundreds of United Methodists for community, worship, organizing, and living out what it means to be a church where all are welcome and celebrated. The conference will take place in St. Louis, MO. Join us for a weekend that promises to be full of inspiration, connection, and a vision of what the church could be. In addition to great worship and fellowship, we will have two days of engaging workshops, hear from Commission on A Way Forward (CoWF) members about their experience, offer opportunities for jurisdictional teams to meet, and begin planning our presence and witness at General Conference in February 2019.

LYNC partner organizations for For Everyone Born are: Affirmation, Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA), Methodists in New Directions (MIND), Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus (UMQCC), and Western Methodist Justice Movement (WMJM).
