Towards a Welcoming and Inclusive Church
Believe Out Loud
Believe Out Loud Power Summit
Resources from the Believe Out Loud Power Summit
in partnership with:
The Believe Out Loud Power Summer offers advanced concrete skills-building for leaders in the pro-LGBT Welcoming Church Movement in key areas of organizing & movement-building.
CHOOSE BETWEEN FOUR TRACKS:
Leadership and Board Development
Campaigns - Church & Secular
Barriers, Resistance, and Conflict
Running across all of the different tracks will be through-lines including: scriptural affirmation, a look at race, bisexual and transgender inclusion, cultural power and political power, and our different identities as individuals, how we are connected to our local church, a part of our denomination, and our relationship to the larger pro-LGBT Welcoming Church Movement.
TENTATIVE SCHEDULE (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)

If traveling by air, fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO).

SHUTTLE SERVICE BETWEEN THE AIRPORT AND THE HOTEL
The hotel recommends that we use Mears Transportation. When you arrive, find the Mears booth on Level 1 (one floor below baggage claim). The booth is open from 7:30am - midnight, but the service is available 24 hours a day. You should pay for a round trip fare at that point, as it is cheaper than two one-ways. Tell them you are going to the DoubleTree on International Drive (which is in their Zone 3).
Round trip fares:
To return to the airport, you will have to call them at least 24 hours ahead of time to make your reservation.
If you are driving to Orlando, there is free parking at the hotel.
