Many of us feel unprepared to talk about the topic of sexuality, yet it pervades our culture and affects most families in some way. How can we respond with grace and truth?
On Sunday, March 3 our goal is to equip you to have conversations that balance the compassion of Jesus with the authority of Scripture at home and with others. Pastor Alex has invited Dr. Christopher Yuan, founder of The Holy Sexuality Project, to share his faith story in all three worship services, and lead three afternoon sessions on key biblical truths around sexuality. Drawing from his personal journey from agnosticism to a Bible professor, and his in-depth education in biblical languages, theology and health sciences, Dr. Yuan presents a compelling perspective. Join us for this equipping event that seeks to provide a Christ-centered understanding of sexuality and gender rooted in the gospel that is full of grace and full of truth.
*No Registration Required*

Is this age-appropriate for my children?
Both Carmel and Dr. Yuan believe parents have the God-given responsibility to shepherd, disciple, and educate their children. So we want to inform you of this opportunity as we address biblical sexuality and allow you as the parent to decide whether to include your young child or not.
With all the confusion today regarding sexuality and gender, we encourage all school-aged kids and youth to remain. Even for young grade school children, the message will be appropriate for them. We encourage you to allow this to be a unique and much-needed opportunity to have gospel-centered discussions afterward at home about God's beautiful and good design for sexuality.
*Please note, there will be NO childcare provided for the afternoon sessions.
Who is Dr. Yuan?
Dr. Christoper Yuan is the author of Holy Sexuality and the Gospel, named the 2020 Book of the Year for social issues by Outreach Magazine. Dr. Yuan has taught Bible at Moody Bible Institute for twelve years and speaks around the world on faith and sexuality. As the creator of The Holy Sexuality Project, a valuable 12-lesson video series for parents, grandparents, and teens, designed for home discipleship (holysexuality.com), Dr. Yuan provides a unique, biblically based perspective on sexuality and identity.
What CAN I expect from this event?
In a world filled with confusion about sexuality and gender, Dr. Yuan provides powerful insights. Drawing from his personal journey from agnosticism to a Bible professor, and his in-depth education in biblical languages, theology, and health sciences, Dr. Yuan presents a compelling perspective.
He emphasizes that sex, desire, relationships, and identity are all profoundly influenced by God’s design, challenging us not to embrace our sexuality but to embrace Christ—shattering the traditional paradigms of gay and straight—and guiding us toward a biblical standard of holy sexuality.
