Kimberly Knight is the Minister of Digital Community with Extravagance UCC and a popular blogger at Patheos.com where she
offers her always faithful and often snarky reflections on being queer and Christian in America.
She holds an M.Div from Candler School of Theology and a head full of nerdy knowledge from decades of working in the multimedia industry. The merging of her theological training and technology background led her to plant an online progressive Christian congregation where for over five years she led worship, bible study and community events for the digital natives of Second Life. She has served as the online organizer for The Beatitudes Society for two years and as a marketing and social media consultant for The Center for Progressive Renewal.
Kimberly also currently serves as the Director of Digital Strategy for a private women’s college in the south. In her own words “I have a long history of back-pew sitting, Wednesday night supper eatin’ and generally trying God’s patience since 1969.”
Creating an LGBT Inclusive Church
Kimberly will facilitate a workshop exploring the steps any church, regardlessness of denomination (or no denomination) can take to become a community that openly welcomes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
