As DCC, we believe that everyone should be able to show up fully as who they are and to be fully known and loved. Our LGBTQIA+ ministry welcomes LGBTQ+ Christians of all ages, single or partnered, those who have been out for a while, those who are questioning and anyone in-between. Put simply; this is a place for LGBTQ+ people to land and find community to discuss their faith. You can join their weekly community group here, or visit this landing page often to get information on upcoming events and opportunities. For questions, email LGBTQ@denverchurch.org.

Learn More About Our Journey to Inclusion

Denver Community Church ran a 5-week Learning Community in March of 2017 to help our faith community learn and process our move to full inclusion from January of that year. To watch or listen to the content, please see below.

For more information on inclusive churches and resources visit Church Clarity and gaychurch.org. For any additional information or questions for DCC, contact Jon.
