The Bible & Sexuality: Practical Answers for Today's World

to Oct 08

Williamstown, KY

Answers Center - Ark Encounter

Issues of sexuality and gender are permeating and dividing our culture—and it’s only getting worse (just take a look at recent news headlines)! Christians need to be equipped with answers and practical tools to navigate an ever-changing culture and a domineering sexual revolution.

That’s why the Bible and sexuality is the theme of our annual Answers for Pastors and Leaders conference. The conference is open to everyone. Whether you’re a pastor or a pastor’s wife, a Christian leader, a high school or college student, a parent, a grandparent, or a believer concerned about what’s going on in the culture, this conference is for you. We have new policies in place to ensure every guest has a safe visit.
