Purpose of the Coalition
The Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches is a collaboration of more than 80 churches and other ministries in the Chicago
metropolitan area which welcome and affirm people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have two
- To spread the message of our members' LGBTQ-inclusion across the Chicago metropolitan area, mindful that a positive message about
sexual and family diversity is a gift to all people.
- To connect the leaders, members, and guests of our partner churches for fellowship and education, enabling support and
resource-sharing for the practices of faithful welcome.
