Spiritual Risks & Gospel Opportunities
Most youth develop serious to life-dominating sexual struggles during adolescence. These struggles can lead them to question their identity and their faith.
Sexual struggles can deeply impact relationships by distorting healthy, God-given boundaries. For many, sexual behavior and shame hinder their relationships with God and confuse them about following Christ and the nature of grace.
Young people need answers to their questions about sexuality, and they need to learn how to apply the Gospel to their temptations and struggles. There is real hope and real life in following Christ in this important area of life.
How the Student Outreach Works for You
We are developing engaging resources, in print and electronic media, to educate, equip, and encourage those who work in student and campus ministry.
Dynamic presentations — workshops, seminars, webinars, online events — round out our approach to reach this critical generation.
This is a challenging area for youth and ministry workers, so we are also available for personal consultation, planning and problem-solving.
Reaching Adolescents' and Young Adults' Hearts and Minds
Our resources, seminars and web-based training are designed to help you know how to:
- communicate a relevant biblical worldview of sex and sexuality
- disciple students to steward their sexuality in ways that honor God
- help students struggling with particular temptations and sexual sins
- minister to those who struggle with same-sex attraction
- help students develop healthy, God-glorifying relationships that exhibit sexual integrity
- lead students to develop peer-accountability and discipleship relationships that work
- help students understand and show grace to those who may struggle with transgender or intersex identity
