Partnership

Unlike gay advocacy groups within The United Methodist Church (UMC), Transforming Congregations does not partner with local churches in order to tally numbers or promote a denominational political position. The Judicial Council ruled many years ago that UMC church organizations, including local congregations, may not adopt the labels "reconciling," "transforming," or "confessing" because to do so is divisive.*  We encourage local UMC churches to abide by that ruling.

 

We do invite ALL local churches to partner with us through prayer and financial support, and by taking some practical steps to uphold traditional biblical understandings of marriage and sexuality.

 

*The pertinent Judicial Council rulings are #847 and #871.
