Affirming Churches in Ohio.png

Congregations on this list are known to LOVEboldly to be intentionally affirming of LGBTQIA+ people. LOVEboldly uses the term "affirming" to refer to churches that meet the following criteria: a) will allow same-gender partners to marry in their building/on their property; b) will ordain and/or hire clergy who are LGBTQIA+; and c) will allow LGBTQIA+ people to serve in all ministries including on the church's governing body.

 

This list is neither exhaustive nor is it a guarantee that every LGBTQIA+ person and their allies will be welcomed in these communities. Congregations are groups of people, and though we try, people sometimes hurt other people, even unintentionally.

 

If you know of a congregation that is missing, please contact Ben Huelskamp
