SEXUAL IDENTITY AND LABELS: A Testimony by Rachel Gilson
A personal story of biblical ethics as a same sex attracted believer.
February 13, 2020 | Time to be determined
Location Coming Soon!
Rachel Gilson has been sharing her personal story of serving Jesus as a same sex attracted believer for over 3 years. Rachel serves on the leadership team of Theological Development and Culture with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) and Campus Staff for the Northeast Region specifically giving leadership in LGBT+ engagement.
Join us for a morning with Rachel as she shares how she met Jesus as a student at Yale University and how meeting him changed her understanding of her same-sex attraction. She will also speak to sexual identity and labels; does it matter if someone identifies as a gay Christian or a same-sex attracted Christian? How does self-identification impact the goal of sanctification and pursuit of holiness?
As the church learns how to better love the LGBT+ community while holding to a Biblical sexual ethic, it’s critical to listen.
Registration opening soon!
