Overview: What does the Bible teach about marriage, singleness, sex, and bodies? Can the church lovingly engage LGBT+ people and their families and still hold to the historic Christian view of marriage? How do we navigate the biblical and practical dimensions of these questions with both clarity and proper complexity? These are questions that church leaders at every level need to engage.

Foundations: Grounded in the Gospel, Engaging our Culture
What do we need in order to enter into conversations around sexuality, gender, and discipleship? How can we be rooted in the gospel and engage our culture? These workshops will equip participants with key marks of a gospel culture, which is crucial for any church to engage these matters well. It will also lay the foundation for understanding our broader culture’s framework and terminology when it comes to questions of marriage, sexuality, and gender.
Format: Three 45-minute sessions of teaching and dialogue with fifteen minute breaks for refreshments and further discussion.
