Transgender Identity + The Church
Monday, February 22, 2021 | 12:30pm – 2:00pm
As the transgender conversation becomes more prevalent in our society, Transform Minnesota is proud to partner with Dr. Preston Sprinkle for an exclusive Transform: Live event. Transform: Live is an opportunity for local pastors and ministry leaders to virtually connect with well-renowned biblical thought leaders through participant-led discussion and Q+A.
Amidst changing perceptions and policies, we believe strongly in the importance of the Church responding well. Christians looking to navigate the transgender conversation from a biblical perspective with a gospel-centered heart will greatly benefit from this event. Dr. Sprinkle will draw from his new book: Embodied, which equips readers to engage the transgender conversation with kindness and confidence. He approaches this topic with compassion, truth, and integrity.
This event offers an environment with invaluable and exclusive content you won’t find elsewhere. As an attendee, you will have the unique opportunity to engage directly with Dr. Preston Sprinkle and ask questions that are personally impacting your ministry, discipleship, and fellowship. This event’s content will be discussion-based and participant-led; we encourage you to arrive with questions. We hope to see you at the Transform: Live table!
A few topics Dr. Sprinkle can help facilitate during this event include:
• What the Bible says about God creating men and women in His image and what this means for transgender experiences
• Why most prevailing gender stereotypes come from culture rather than the Bible
• Why an increasing number of our youth are questioning their gender
• The moral implications of sex reassignment surgery and hormone therapy
• Pronoun usage
