On October 19, 2013, Pillars from the United States and Canada, along with the rectors of Flagship Congregations gathered in Detroit, Michigan, for the annual conference.

District Apostle Kolb requested that Rainbow-NAC United States have representatives present to distribute information, answer questions, and give a short presentation on what Rainbow does. Approximately 60 brothers and sisters visited the Rainbow table.

Nearly all of the conversations were overwhelmingly positive.  It was a great opportunity for information about Rainbow-NAC and Inclusion to be shared with Pillars and Rectors who may not have known or read about Rainbow-NAC.  Many shared stories with our reps of situations where they had LGBT members and youth in their congregations and were very happy to be receiving more information about how to provide appropriate pastoral care to our LGBT members and guests.  We ran out of printed materials and took email addresses of members who requested information.

The conference was a great opportunity for exposure, and visibility for Rainbow-NAC and great progress was made 'stepping forward' into the 21st Century regarding inclusion of all within the church.
