Welcoming & Affirming

The Crossing is a recognized ministry of the Reconciling Ministries Network and the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists, both organizations working for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and other individuals with different sexual orientations and gender identities in the full life of the United Methodist and the Baptist denominations, respectively.

We fully affirm the belovedness of all people and affirm that LGBTQIA+ people are vital members of the Church. If you are a student looking to connect with other LGBTQIA+ students, check out our Queer Students of Faith small group!
