As leaders, it’s our opportunity to ensure we are equipped with current contextual information and biblical truths that don’t change to provide a GOSPEL centered response to a world seeking truth and love. In this session, we’ll tackle a very challenging topic with wisdom and grace and the hope of developing a Christ-compelled compassion through a gospel- focused lens for the Queer Culture.
