We are so glad you have found us!
This is a safe space for you to discover who we are, what we are doing, and how you can get involved. We know that there are lots of welcoming communities across the internet that will help people seeking an inclusive congregation. However, as the only organization solely devoted to building the Welcoming and Affirming movement within the Baptist traditions, AWAB has a unique call to be The National Voice for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Allied Baptists in the US, and to support the work of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists around the world.
Since 1993 AWAB has been supporting churches in being and becoming Welcoming and Affirming of all people regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. We work as individuals, congregations, regional groupings and as a national body to advance the Radical Welcome and Love of God in Jesus Christ through being the Ministry of Reconciliation and building up the Beloved Community where all will be one.
AWAB Q&A with David Weasley
Greetings from the Association of Welcoming & Affirming Baptists!I've just arrived back in Chicago after a powerful and exciting time at the American Baptist Biennial Mission Summit in Kansas City. As we get back to work, I wanted to take this opportunity to get in touch with you and answer some of your questions about AWAB in this time of transition. As you probably know, the Mission Summit marked the last working days for our departing staff, Robin Lunn and Jodi Robinson. It was great to celebrate with them in Kansas City, and they will be dearly missed - but the work of the Association continues!
Let me share the some of the questions I heard in Kansas City, and some brief answers. These may invite longer or more personal conversations, which we look forward to having with you!
