RIC Synods, Colleges, Seminaries and Organizations

The full list of Reconciling in Christ (RIC) settings is shown below. The RIC congregations list is on a separate page.

We are in the process of a new website and a new database. We are unable to connect the RIC profile with the setting listing at this time. If you have any questions, or concerns around the RIC community in one of the RIC settings, you can call our office (651-665-0861)


In 1984 ReconcilingWorks started the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) program to identify and recognize Lutheran congregations that welcome lesbian and gay believers. Since July 2002, the Reconciling in Christ program has been committed to the inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. 

All congregations, synods and organizations on the RIC Roster have adopted affirmations of welcome of gay and lesbian persons. Majority of the synods, colleges, seminiaries, and organizations on the RIC Roster have also voted to include bisexual and transgender persons in their affirmations of welcome. The RIC program is committed to an ongoing process of education and engagement toward a fully inclusive RIC Roster.

	Affirmation includes bisexual and/or transgender personsis the icon used to show settings who have a welcome to bisexual and transgender people in their affirmation of welcome.

MAR Icon 33 is the icon used to show settings who do LGBT marriage services. If your setting does LGBT weddings, and you do not have an icon next to your name, fill out this Google form to be added to the list. NOTE: If a setting does not have the icon next to their name, it may mean the setting has not yet indicated so to us.

We try to keep this list as up-to-date as possible. If the information for your congregation has changed, please have your pastor, director, or leader call our office (651-665-0861) to update your RIC listing.
