SNN Recommends 10/8/09-More Light Presbyterians

Our Mission...

Following the risen Christ, and seeking to make the Church a true community of hospitality, the mission of More Light Presbyterians is to work for the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Who Are We?

We are individual members and congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA) who are faithful to God's call and believe that God continues to open new understandings of scripture and the Word in the life of Christ. As a Christian community, we believe that the church must seek to live out those understandings in our life together. Our work is supported by an elected board or lay and ordained persons and full-time staff.

What Does MLP Do?

* Provide a ministry of care for inclusive congregations and build new MLP Chapters around the country through the outreach of the National Field Organizer;
* Educate individuals, churches, and presbyteries on GLBT issues through published materials and programs;
* Train leaders in congregations and presbyteries to advocate for the full participation of GLBT Christians in the life and ministry of the Presbyterian Church;
* Fund proactive work in passing legislation that eradicates homophobia and injustice in the Presbyterian Church and in society;
* Partner with other faith traditions to support the GLBT community in matters of justice;
* Bear witness to the individual God-given gifts of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the Presbyterian Church.
