With his passionate speech at the Special Session of the General Conference – United Methodist Church in February 2019, J.J. Warren pleaded for his church to stay together and include all, saying “We are the church. We are God’s children. Let us be the church together.” With this speech, Warren stepped onto an international media stage, and into the center of the disagreement in the UMC about how to be in ministry with LGBTQ people.
In Reclaiming Church Warren, a seminary student and aspiring pastor, continues his call to reaffirm the Church be welcoming to all, including young people like those he led at Sarah Lawrence College who “didn’t know God could love them because their churches said God didn’t.”

The book addresses three points of importance to young people looking to be part of a church community, and a call:
1. The identity and nature of God
2. Their identity as children of a loving God
3. The purpose and role of “church” in their lives

In the final chapter, We are the Church, Warren focuses on practical and positive steps for joining voices, being heard, building bridges, and working together for young people to reclaim Church in their lives.
