About the Event
The requests from parents wanting help with navigating gender, pornography, and sexuality related topics with their children is steadily increasing. The aim of this workshop is to equip parents with new perspectives and skill-sets to effectively connect with their children around historically hard or awkward conversations. Participants will also be introduced to the concept of sexual integrity and how to disciple a child’s sexuality as well as male/female identity.
This is a Bible-centered and faith-based event. The speakers hold Christian worldviews. Please note the workshop is not designed nor aimed at having debates. As a speaking team we are not gatekeepers to the Gospel but instead hope to model a ministry of reconciliation, gentleness, and truth in love.What will be covered:
- Learn what it means to help cultivate your child’s sexaul integrity.
