Open Hearts GLBT Ministry

 

The Open Hearts GLBT Ministry provides educational opportunities to build and develop greater visibility and understanding of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) experiences within our church community and develop faith-building outreach programming to the diverse spectrum of the GLBT community.
