Youth Worker Training: Sex, Sexuality, and Gender

Presented by Jason Soucinek.

It’s not enough to just quote Bible verses at youth, or to give a one-off message on sexuality and gender. We need to show how beautiful the Creator’s vision for human flourishing really is, so that our youth will not only believe it—but desire it. This forum will help raise up and inform youth pastors, leaders, and volunteers, to help them walk with their youth in these crucial and complex conversations.

AT THIS FORUM, WE WILL ENGAGE VARIOUS TOPICS SURROUNDING SEX, SEXUALITY, AND GENDER, INCLUDING:

  • Current cultural trends, and influences impacting our youth.
  • Biblical framework for thinking about sex, sexuality, and gender.
  • The impact you get to make in these conversations as a youth worker.
  • Why language and posture is so important; learning nuances of these conversations.
  • Communicating biblical truths which include God’s abundant grace.
  • How to communicate the need to practice sexual integrity without losing the message of grace and God’s love.
  • The importance of consistency in what we teach and do within the church.
  • How to think theologically when it comes to same sex attraction and transgender identities.
  • How to partner with parents and guardians in these conversations.

Many formats are available for conferences, retreats, seminars, and community programs.
