Training for Ministry Leaders
"Approaching the Sexuality & Gender COnversation with Grace & Truth"
As our culture and society continue to change, we are inevitably going to be faced with new questions and realities in our ministries and our churches. One of the larger topics in the church-at-large and in our world is that of marriage, sexuality and gender. If you have not as a ministry leader been approached with a difficult situation regarding this topic, then we believe it is only a matter of time.
The South Carolina District is committed to providing our pastors and ministry leaders with tools and training in this sensitive, yet divisive area. We want to uphold the truth that we as the Church of the Nazarene believe, while meeting people where they are with love and grace.
Since we know that this topic is much deeper than a two-hour training can provide, all leaders who register for the training will be provided with access to the Digital Leaders Forum, an in-depth training with 50 lessons. We believe that this will help our ministries to become more aware, understanding and ready as we hold steady to truth and embrace people with the love of Christ.
This training is open to Pastors and Ministry Leaders, and we encourage you to take part if you serve in the areas of children or student ministries. We hope that this begins a larger conversation across our district where we are better equipped to reach out and to welcome in.
