Posture Shift is writing a new church history where communities of faith and homes are safe for LGBT+ family and friends. We offer leading resources for every pastor, parent and all who care for LGBT+ people.
For every pastor
Posture Shift is a global leader in training and consulting services on LGBT+ inclusion and care. Our missiological training platform allows churches, schools, camps and other para-church ministries to faithfully honor God and radically love people. Safer churches means more LGBT+ people encountering the presence of Jesus Christ.
For every parent
Guiding Families is a top print resource providing guidance to parents, families and LGBT+ loved ones. Available in English and Spanish, our resource sells across the globe. It helps parents build trust with and reflect Christ’s love for LGBT+ children of all ages. Safer homes means less homelessness, sex trafficking and suicide.
For all who care
Since 2006, we’re trained and consulted pastors and leaders while caring for parents and families across the globe. We’ve cared for thousands of LGBT+ people of all ages. Over 80% of our work touches youth ages 10 to 25 years. Anyone who loves LGBT+ people can be equipped by attending Posture Shift or reading Guiding Families.

Posture Shift Intensive Course (2-day)
We highly recommend Posture Shift Intensive Course (2-Day) for your entire leadership team. Invest two days for the highest retention and implementation rates. We don’t train and consult to simply inform; we measure success by how well we equip your team to implement LGBT+ inclusion and care within your context.
Implementing LGBT+ inclusion and care won’t happen within two full days of training. We view Posture Shift Brief and Digital Seminar as the pathway to establishing buy-in to the Intensive Course. If you know your team is onboard and ready to roll, then request a proposal by clicking here.
Posture Shift Brief (2-hour)
If you need to build consensus or further assess our teaching, schedule Posture Shift Brief (2-Hour) for a virtual training in any time zone across the globe. This includes an hour overview of our missiological teaching and one hour of open dialogue.
Posture Shift Digital Seminar (3.5-hour)
Or you can purchase Posture Shift Digital Seminar (3.5-Hour) for an on-demand resource. Posture Shift Brief is best for allowing your team to have live access to asking questions or sharing concerns to gain clarity on Posture Shift’s teaching.

The best next step is obtaining your print copy of Guiding Families! Our best practice care plan is important to read as quickly as possible after an LGBT+ child has come out. Preventing early relational mistakes will ensure trust for the road ahead. LGBT+ loved ones can be in a vulnerable spot after coming out. Guiding Families will help make family and home safe, foster honest conversation, and ensure the security of unconditional love. Loving an LGBT+ family member doesn’t mean your biblical beliefs are shifting; it simply means you’re living out a Christlike posture. Order today.
Posture Shift has provided non-licensed mentor care to thousands of LGBT+ people, parents, families and LGBT+ loved ones since 2006. All care is provided via Zoom or a telephone call. We specialize in nourishing parent-child connection and fostering safer homes for LGBT+ pre-teens, teens and young adults. Over 80% of our work involves parents of children 10 to 25 years old. Increasing family acceptance is directly connected to lower suicidality. Posture Shift specializes in preventing family rejection. We assist parents in seeking reconciliation from relational fractures within the family. It is highly recommended that parents and families first read Guiding Families Expanded Edition and then schedule Direct Care, as necessary.
