Guided by the light and love of Christ, GCN is transforming attitudes toward LGBTQ people across denominations and cultures.
In addition to our four fantastic keynote addresses and educational workshops, the GCN Conference offers opportunities to give back to the community and connect with others who share your interests.
If you've already registered for the conference, please let us know below which of these additional activities you would like to attend.
All women are welcome at the annual WomenConnect Retreat, held on Thursday, prior to the opening session. To view registration information and details, click here.
New in 2018, the Trans Retreat offers trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming attendees an opportunity to connect with others, fellowship together, learn, and exchange resources and encouragement. The retreat will take place starting during Breakout Session B and last through dinner. To learn more and register, click here.
Each year, we give back to the local community by volunteering at soup kitchens, food pantries, senior citizen homes, and other places around the community.

Meet other attendees who share your interests and understand your background! We will have designated rooms on Friday for you to bring your lunch and get to know some folks in a more intimate setting. In an effort to make the community lunches more accessible, we are providing space where groups can come together. Participants can bring their own lunches or purchase meals at one of the restaurants on-site at the Colorado Convention Center. There will be space designated for the following affinity groups: Ministry Leaders, People of Color, Side B, and Parents.

Coming to the GCN Conference for the first time? Join us for a special session designed just for you. You’ll be able to meet other conference attendees, learn about the exciting opportunities offered during the conference, and how you can make the most of your experience in Denver. No need to sign up for these! Keep an eye on the schedule as we update it with the times and locations.
General Sessions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday open with contemporary praise and worship. We’ll use this time to gather in fellowship and show thanks for God’s amazing grace and mercy. And as part of General Session 4 on Sunday morning, we will close out our weekend together with a special interdenominational liturgical service. Sunday’s traditional-style celebration will include singing and a choir, responsive readings, and more.
Join us back at the conference hotel Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings for some fun opportunities to socialize and get to know other attendees. These will include a karaoke night, a game night, and an open-mic night. Come showcase your skills and talent! Check the schedule for details.
