A Christian Response to Homosexuality
In light of the growing relevance of sexual identity today, we offer this morning seminar for pastors and ministry leaders as a resource to expand and deepen theological understanding of human sexuality. How should Christians respond in a gospel-centered way to homosexuality and those in the LGB community? How do we minister to those experiencing same-sex attractions and offer a safe and redemptive place to grow in Christ?
This seminar is intended to equip pastors and leaders for dialogue about sexuality identity questions while maintaining truth and exhibiting love and grace towards every person’s unique experiences. Dr. Yuan will present Biblical texts that answer the question, What does the Bible say about homosexuality? He will review and exegetically critique gay-affirming interpretations from an evangelical perspective. This seminar will preserve and strengthen the historic, Biblical teaching that God intends for His people. Hear Dr. Yuan’s powerful testimony of redemption and grace.
