2022 ONA National Gathering
Celebrate 50 years of Open and Affirming Ministries!
Join the churchwide Open and Affirming movement to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ONA Coalition and the ordinations of Bill Johnson and Anne Holmes. We'll honor the past, celebrate the present, and claim a vision for the future. In this turning point in the movement for LGBTQ+ ministry and advocacy in the United Church of Christ, help our growing family of 1,800 congregations and other settings turn towards the future!
Join us online from wherever you are for the 2022 National Gathering of the Open and Affirming Coalition! Our first virtual Gathering!
7:00pm-9:00pm EDT each day:
Friday August 5th
Saturday August 6th
Sunday August 7th
Log in all three nights for a discount, or just come to whichever night works for you! These evenings will be packed: we are celebrating 50 years of the ONA Coalition, honoring the ordination and ministry of trailblazers and leaders in the movement, and visioning where we are called for the next 50 years. You won't want to miss it! There will be inspiring keynote speakers, a state of the movement update from the Coalition's Executive Director, centering worship experiences, and much more.
In lieu of a scholarship fund this year, if the cost of the registration is a hardship, please utilize the free registration option. We request you then make a donation. The suggested amount is $25/day but any gift is appreciated. No one will be turned away if they are unable to contribute.
Registrants will receive the livestream link via email, closer to the event.
