Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Profile Survey

This form is to submit your faith community's information after it has voted to affirm a welcome statement and RIC parnter commitments.

At ReconcilingWorks, we ask faith communities to commit to the follow to be recognized as a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Partner:
  1. Your community explicitly states a welcome to people of "all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions" or "LGBTQIA+" and names its commitment to racial equity or anti-racism in its welcome statement.
  2. Open to calling an LGBTQIA+ and Black, Brown, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) Rostered Leader.
  3. Will allow community space/sanctuary to be used for LGBTQIA+ weddings and blessings.
  4. Will make a meaningful contribution annually to support the national RIC program.

Check out our "Sample Affirmations of Welcome" resource.


ReconcilingWorks uses the information obtained from this survey to ensure the organization is providing resources, educational materials, and support to meet the needs of our RIC settings. The information provided will remain confidential to both ReconcilingWorks' staff and those folks inquiring about your faith community in discernment of visiting. As your community continues to grow and evolve, please feel free to fill out the RIC Profile Survey again; ReconcilingWorks encourages RIC Ministry Settings to update information annually.
