|The Gay, Lesbian, and Affirming Disciples Alliance is an organization of
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and affirming members of the Christian Church
(Disciples of Christ).
We are a prophetic voice calling for the full inclusion of LGBT persons in the Church. We nurture and support one another. We provide educational resources to the Church on issues important to LGBT Christians.
We gather annually for fellowship, worship, nurture, support, and education at the General Assembly of the Christian Church and in other locations during years when the Assembly does not meet. We also gather in regional chapters.
We invite congregations and other manifestations of the Christian Church to declare themselves Open & Affirming, to proclaim publicly that LGBT persons are welcome in the life and leadership of the Church. We work with similar welcoming congregation programs in other denominations, providing time and resources to advance this call for inclusion throughout the whole Church.
GLAD members and friends receive our newsletter, Crossbeams, which includes news of the Alliance and our work in the Church as well as information about upcoming events.
To accomplish the work of the Alliance, we are organized into seven Ministry Teams. The members of the Alliance enable us to accomplish our call. We invite all members to support our Ministry Teams with their time and talents.
