Adult Faith Formation

Carol Joy Holling Camp

Carol Joy Holling Camp

This retreat will guide church leaders and camp professionals in best practices for ministry with youth, young adults, and their families that identify as LGBTQ+. By providing a safe space to educate and create dialogue, ministry leaders and professionals can begin to wrap their heads around what the youth and young adults (and their families) need and how we can respond in a welcoming, inclusive, and loving way.
