A Ministry of Make and Deepen Disciples

Embrace Webinar Series

Thanks to all who have joined in the Embrace webinars. Our next webinar will take place on October 11 (details below).

In the meantime, please feel free to e-mail us with questions or comments at embrace@covchurch.org and be sure to sign up for our mailing list to receive updates on all things Embrace.

What is the relationship between sexuality and discipleship? The church must expand its paradigm of discipleship to include “sexual discipleship”—helping followers of Christ to know what it means to yield every area of life, including sexuality, to the love and lordship of Jesus. Sexual discipleship will only occur when we see how sexuality dovetails with the larger picture of what it means to be a Christ-follower. Join us for a conversation with Juli Slattery, author of Rethinking Sexuality, about how we can freshly engage questions of human sexuality through the paradigm of discipleship.
