LGBTQ Inclusion at The Road


The Road is an accepting community (mission statement) committed to seeing, knowing and being God's love everywhere we are. We mean it. You, your story, and your Being belong here and are welcome to participate in the life of the community.       


Our hope and encouragement for human relationships, intimate and otherwise, is founded on relationship with a reconciling God who reconciles us to Himself and us to each other, through Jesus. We follow Jesus here. It is His character and example that shapes our understanding of God's design for good relationships.     

In matters of right relationships, and discipleship, Beloved is always where we begin (Jan Richardson).


We also acknowledge that we are part of a denomination, like many denominations, that is in the middle of the conversation about human sexuality, and whose members hold many divergent views on specific issues, including the affirmation of same-sex marriage. Our pastors cannot perform same-sex weddings and have them officially recognized by the denomination at this time.  


For further conversation and clarification about this, please do not hesitate to contact one of our pastors.
