New York Conference BOOM Formally Welcomes LGBTQI Candidates for Ministry
An article recently published by the UM New York Conference is being shared here for the benefit of those interested in keeping abreast of the actions being taken elsewhere in the country to recognize equality and promote respect for members of the LGBTQ community.
The article reports that all persons who seek to glorify God in word and deed and live under the lordship of Jesus Christ are invited to discern and explore their call toward ordination or licensing in the New York Conference. Sexual orientation and gender identity are not and will not be considered in the evaluation of candidates by the Board of Ordained Ministry.
Here's hoping that the General Conference will follow the lead of the New York Conference.
