Our Mission: Wingspan Ministry models and manifests the gospel call to justice for GLBT persons in our congregation, our church and our world.
Wingspan Ministry is a ministry of St. Paul-Reformation Lutheran Church that offers pastoral care, education, advocacy and support for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Wingspan Ministry currently consists of a coordinating committee and three working groups: the Uganda Project, Marriage Matters Task Force, and Freedom Project.
Visit SPR’s Facebook group for updates on upcoming events and news.
The Uganda Project aims to support GLBT persons in Uganda by raising awareness of their plight and by raising funds to support the ministry of Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, one of the leading religious advocates for GLBT persons in Uganda. Learn more about SPR’s involvement.
MARRIAGE MATTERS TASK FORCE
The Marriage Matters Task Force was created to defeat the marriage amendment on November’s ballot. St. Paul-Reformation Lutheran Church is a member of MN United for All Families, the coalition working to defeat the amendment. Learn more about SPR’s involvement.
The Freedom Project launched in 2012 and believes: “All human beings are created in God’s image, and no one should be enslaved to another person. Human Trafficking is a violation of the God-given dignity of its victims. The Wingspan Freedom Project of St. Paul-Reformation is committed to educating St. Paul-Reformation Lutheran Church as well as the public regarding Human Trafficking, and is committed to advocacy and support for survivors of trafficking.” Learn more here.

The Wingspan Logo gives expression to the all-embracing arms of God which welcomes and affirms all people, but especially gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons, their families and friends. The flame is a reminder of the light of justice and freedom which continually shines in places of oppression and hopelessness. We know that oppression and hopelessness is a particular experience for GLBT people and we declare a mission whose goal is that one day that oppression will cease and the hopelessness will fade away.
