Sexual Identity & The Christian

NWC-Event-Mark-Yarhouse-2016-600x350-2As we enter 2016, the Northwest Conference is pleased to provide another opportunity for learning and engagement by sponsoring a workshop led by Dr. Mark Yarhouse, Psy.D., entitled, “Sexual Identity & the Christian: Positioning the Church to Be Both Faithful and Engaged in a Changing Culture.”

Join us for a discussion on how people of faith navigate sexual identity questions in their lives. Sexual identity refers to the labels people use to discuss their sexuality—labels like gay, lesbian, bisexual and straight. In the morning we will discuss two of the most frequently asked questions: What causes homosexuality and can it change? What are the experiences and challenges encountered by people of faith who are navigating sexual identity questions in their personal lives?

This event is open to pastors, ministry staff members, lay leaders and key influencers in NWC churches and affiliated ministries. This event is free of charge. However, refreshments and a box lunch will be provided for a suggested minimum donation of $10.00/person.

Please RSVP with how many people are planning to attend from your church or ministry by Monday, Feb. 22 at 5 p.m. to Jessa Anderson at the NWC office by phone (612-721-4893) or by e-mail at jessa@northwestconference.org. We encourage you to make use of this valuable resource.
