Adolescence, Sexuality, & Parenting
There are several key topics we believe we need to walk through with our middle and high school students on a regular basis. One such topic is challenging students to navigate relationships and sexuality in a way that honors God. We are living in a world that is presenting (and even promoting) a message to a younger and younger age that says, "You are defined by your relational and sexual pursuits." It’s something we HAVE TO be talking about at home and in the church. As we processed this thought a little more deeply, we asked the question, “What if we created resources to have the same discussion with and among our parents?”
So we decided to go for it! “Adolescence, Sexuality, and Parenting” is a four-part series that will be hosted right every Friday from February 23 through March 16.
It is essential that you are aware of the vital role you play in developing a biblical sexual worldview. We want to help in building this awareness as well as equipping you with some practical ways to nurture a desire for "sexual integrity" in your students.
