About
We Love Because He First Loved Us.
1 John 4:19
It's no secret that there is a divide in the relationship between the LGBTQ+ community and the Church. Many in the LGBTQ+ community see, and experience, the Church as unloving while many in the Church see the LGBTQ+ community as hostile to it and it's message. In fact, many of you reading this right now have experienced this divide from one side or the other; some from both sides.

How would it change your ministry, relationships, family, etc. if you were fully resourced and equipped to help heal the divide and make Christlike disciples in the LGBTQ+ community from a Wesleyan - Holiness perspective?

What if we told you Love Wins.:LGBT could fully resource, and equip you, to help heal the divide and make Christlike disciples in the LGBTQ+ community from a Wesleyan - Holiness perspective in just three days?

May 10 - 12, 2022 at Nazarene Theological Seminary or virtually as we do just that at Loved to Love: The 2022 Love Wins.:LGBT Resourcing Conference!

We invite you to join us as a global group of speakers come together to resource people like YOU to help heal the divide and make Christlike disciples in the LGBTQ+ community.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Loved to Love Conference?

The Loved to Love Conference is a resourcing conference designed to fully resource, and equip attendees to help heal the divide between the Church and the LGBTQ+ community and make Christlike disciples in the LGBTQ+ community from a biblically - grounded, Wesleyan - Holiness perspective.

What is a resourcing conference? 

For this conference it means two things...
1) The goal of the conference is to fully resource, and equip, attendees to help heal the divide between the Church and the LGBTQ+ community and make Christlike disciples from a biblically - grounded, Wesleyan - Holiness perspective.
2) If a resource is mentioned, you'll get a copy of that resource to use in your context.

Who is this conference for?

This conference is for anyone interested in developing a biblically grounded, Wesleyan-Holiness approach to ministry within the LGBTQ+ community that helps heal the current divide that exists between the Church and the LGBTQ+ community and makes disciples whether it be through traditional ministry avenues and/or personal relationships with LGBTQ+ loved ones.

Who is putting this conference on?

This conference is put on by Love Wins.:LGBT, a ministry of Trinity Family Midtown Church of the Nazarene in Kansas City, MO. For more information about Love Wins.:LGBT visit lovewinslgbt.com

Why is the price for virtual attendees and in-person attendees the same?

The price is the same for virtual attendees and in - person attendees for the following reasons...

1) The total price of the resources each group will receive retail for more than the price of the conference.
2) The cost for virtual attendees covers not only the cost of the conference but the shipping costs necessary for them to receive the resources received by the in - person attendees.
3) The cost for the in-person attendees covers not only the cost of the conference but the in - person experience that comes along with attending a conference in - person.
4) The cost for both virtual attendees and in - person attendees help off - set the cost of providing the conference at a reduced price for those unable to afford the price of the conference.

Can those outside the United States of America attend the conference as well? 

Yes. If price is a barrier please refer to the question concerning scholarship availability below.

Will interpretation be provided?
