There is perhaps no more pressing and critical issue in our culture and in our churches today than sexuality. God has designed us with a good and beautiful drive for marital intimacy, but ever since the fall it has been distorted — especially in recent years. And these destructive cultural morals are creeping into families and churches and are damaging relationships. Too often churches are reluctant to address these matters.
For these reasons, our church is hosting a conference to help bring much-needed biblical clarity to this important and timely topic. You’ll receive valuable guidance and useful resources that will help you navigate these times with courage, hope and wisdom.
