Generous Space acknowledges that people who are committed to Christ and who honour the scriptures may arrive at different interpretive conclusions and continue to journey together in unity. Generous Space is a relational posture that LGBTQ+ people and allies can embrace. Theological differences regarding same-sex relationships have often polarized the Christian community, hindered our public witness as the Body of Christ, and alienated LGBTQ+ people from church. But Generous Space demonstrates that our love for Christ and each other can transcend these differences.
Generous Space prioritizes nurturing a safe and encouraging environment to explore and grow in faith in Jesus Christ, entrusting each individual to the leading of the Holy Spirit while encouraging them to be a part of a Christ-centered community. Generous Space seeks to cultivate unity in our diversity, to pursue peace, and embody our core values of humility, hospitality, mutuality, and justice.
Many of the retreat registrants participate in Generous Space Groups in their cities, where they meet regularly with other local LGBTQ+ Christians and allies to learn from one another and encourage each other in their faith.
