Body Shaming
The Culprits and Impact of Image-Related Insults

JONATHAN'S BLOG: Helping leaders reach LGBTQ youth
Many of you have heard the buzz... I mentioned it in my blog once prior... I talked about it on Facebook... and now it's official. It's happening in California November 2nd and 3rd:

Sean, Greg and I have been hearing the same questions from pastors and youth workers over the last year:

"What do I say to the kids in my youth group who say they're 'pan' and the student who identifies as a different gender?"

"How can I teach God's design for sex, a man and a woman in a monogamous relationship, when everything these kids are hearing is the complete opposite?"

"How do I respond to the kid in my small group who always brings the subject back to her new identity... and it ain't in Christ?"

Laws are changing, culture is shifting, and pastors are struggling to know how to truly reach LBTGQ young people like Jesus would. How can we effectively point to Jesus, the only one who truly transforms lives?

That's what this conference will tackle. Take a peek at the details and mark your calendars for our early bird registration on May 31st! Spread the word... you aren't gonna wanna miss this conference!

Hacksaw Ridge
Rescuing others involves risk. This resource from our MOVIE CLIP DISCUSSIONS page shows how Jesus risked and sacrificed so much for us…and why we should be willing to do the same for others. 

The Movie: Just One More
Hacksaw Ridge is a World War II era film that reveals the courageous actions of Private Desmond Doss on behalf of his Army company during the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. “Hacksaw Ridge” was the nickname given to an area on the battlefield where the American soldiers were constantly being beaten back by the Japanese military. During the carnage, American soldiers

Does a Suit Make the Difference
We cannot let the way a person dresses impact the way we treat them. That’s the point blank lesson behind this resource from our YOUTUBE DISCUSSIONS page.  

Discussion Starter: Homeless Experiment 
In the clip, Sandy, a homeless man, stands on a sidewalk and asks for money in two different sets of clothes. When he asks wearing his normal rags, no one gives him anything, but when he asks for money wearing a suit, he gets plenty of it…from complete strangers
