“In the eyes of our Heavenly Father, there is no “us versus them.” There are only those who know Jesus – and those whom Jesus desires to know.”
Due to the amount of interest we have received for this event, we have added a second day to make it a TWO day event. We hope this will be an invaluable tool for your ministry.
One of the greatest challenges facing the church today is how to engage, welcome and share Christ with LGBT+ persons.
For decades, controversy and hurt have existed between the church and the LGBT+ community. A new generation views past mistreatment as a pressing justice issue.
How will we guide our churches forward?
Please set aside April 30 – May 1 for an important equipping event for our community. Posture Shift is a seminar that will present a Missiological Model to help us express the love and message of Christ to the people who identify with the LGBTQ+ community. Rob attended this seminar in Boston this past June and found it to be Biblically faithful and immensely practical. You can check it out further at www.leadthemhome.org. We believe that this seminar also provides essential equipping to help us as pastors and churches minister effectively to families within our communities who are struggling to reconcile their faith with their sexual and gender experience. Please prioritize this event for yourself. Elders, Council members and all pastoral staff including youth and children’s workers will benefit greatly.
We have also added an Evening Seminar for members of your congregations who would love a safe place to ask questions and/or dialogue about this important topic. This seminar is FREE, and we have resources for churches that would like to promote the event for their members.
