Groups

Imago Dei Group for LGBTQIA+ Families who have been hurt by the Church

In this group, we are invited to share our stories and our pain because of how we or our family members identify.
 We will name the lies in the pain that we are somehow less than, and reclaim the healing truth of our inherent value.
It is led by two moms who have experienced religious abuse. One is a spiritual director and the other a therapist. We hope you will join us.
There is no cost for this group.
This group will meet for 6 weeks on Thursday nights, beginning September 22 and going to October 20. It will meet from 7-8:30 p.m. Central time.

Rev. Eva Sullivan-Knoff
Founder and Executive Director of Journey Center of Chicago
Eva has a Masters of Divinity. She has been in ministry for over 30 years, serving as a pastor, chaplain, and spiritual director.  She is the Founder and Executive Director of Journey Center of Chicago. God placed on her heart several years ago the desire to create a place that permeates love, acceptance, and welcome for all, a place that offers programs and services that ministers to people, body/mind/spirit. Because people can be wounded and excluded through the church, the desire was to intentionally create a safe, welcoming, inclusive and affirming place where all truly belong, where people can experience being loved and heard, healing and wholeness, and a deeper awareness of God. It has been her joy and privilege to partner with God and others in this ministry.
