New York, NY – December 6, 2016 – Rev.

(Breakfast at 8:30 am.)
Presenters at the event will highlight why they support the LGBTQ community because of their faith, and not in spite of it.

Amy Butler, Senior Minister, The Riverside Church; Brandan Robertson, Founder and Executive Director, NOMAD Partnerships; Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Senior Minister, Middle Collegiate Church; Alan Manning Chambers, Co-Founder of Speak. Love. and former President of Exodus International; Rev.
