Has your congregation asked, “we’re welcoming, now what?” More Light’s interrelated programs help move congregations along a pathway towards full inclusion for LGBTQ people, improve ministry services for LGBTQ individuals in need, and expand the faith-based movement opposing discriminatory legislation.
Our programs help congregations and our members build their capacity and develop new skills to deepen their welcome to LGBTQ people within their churches and in their wider communities. If you see a program that interests you but don’t know how to get involved, feel free to contact us!

Liberation Bible Study
Liberation Bible Study is a podcast where More Light Executive Director Alex McNeill and guests read the Bible as a source of inspiration and strength to help listeners live into God’s abundant vision for their life and the world.
Each show approaches a different biblical text, and the co-hosts read the text in the style of lectio divina. However, rather than using the typical lectio style, each reading of the text addresses a different question related to liberation.
