Posture Shift – Sharing Christ with LGBT+ Family and Friends

April 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

*This event has been postponed to the Fall of 2020*

This is a FREE evening for those in our community and in our congregations who would like a safe place to learn, dialogue and ask questions relating to the LGBTQ community and how we can love them while maintaining our Christian worldview.

When LGBT+ loved ones come out, families can experience shock. Fear and grief can disable their initial reaction. Emotions erupt. Hurtful words spill. Trust is damaged. Relationships become disconnected. Meanwhile, in the church, LGBT+ people often face impossible hurdles and suspicion about their faith. One courageous disclosure can be met with a response that communicates, “I don’t understand you.”

Lead Them Home’s Posture Shift evening seminar is designed to equip, comfort, and encourage evangelical families of LGBT+ loved ones. Gain a biblically sound approach to caring for LGBT+ loved ones. Learn how to respond well when youth come out, protect youth against bullying and suicide, avoid unintentionally offensive words and phrases, and engage LGBT+ individuals in a trusting relationship over the long term. Family acceptance is a critical component to reducing suicidal risk factors for LGBT+ youth and building faith identity into adulthood. We help families and friends accomplish this within a biblical framework.

Topics Include:

  • Developing a Biblical foundation
  • Responding well when youth come out
  • What it’s like to grow up LGBT+
  • Protecting LGBT+youth against bullying and suicide
  • Avoiding unintentionally offensive words and phrases
  • Building a support team for LGBT+ loved ones and their families
  • Engaging LGBT+ individuals in a trusting relationship over the long term
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Q&A time

Please REGISTER for this event, as only ticket-holders will be admitted.
