Equip 2016 – Pastoral Approaches to Shifting Sexuality explored identity and development, healing and transformation, biblical perspectives on alternative lifestyles, and what the church can do to bring truth and grace.
We saw nearly 220 people from 8 different denominations attend these presentations! Toni Dolfo-Smith and David Wood weaved history, culture, personal stories, examples, and theology together to help pastors better understand and respond to this issue. Below are comments from some of those who attended:
“…drenched in humanity and compassion.”
“The material was a very balanced approach to a very polarizing issue within the church.”
“Very practical tools on how to respond to a complicated issue.”
“It opened my understanding of grace and truth.”
“…relevant, timely, personal stories, engaging, passionate speakers, and very useful, practical information shared…”
“This gave me some new handles for sharing with our church family, my family, and friends and reaffirmed the importance of relationship.”
Mark your calendars for Equip 2017, which will be held in conjunction with District Conference May 24-25, 2017!
