SCHEDULE





FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMEBER 1 7:30–9:30PM


SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 2 10:30–11:45AM




Are Christians Against Sexual Freedom?
This opening talk clears away misconceptions about Christian attitudes toward sex and explains why Christians hold the strong views that we do.


Thinking about Sex...as a Christian
This talk explains how confused both our culture and our churches are about sex. It then sets out the struggle that is common to everyone—straight or not, single or not—regarding sexual purity and enjoyment, and offers a clear and helpful model for thinking about sex.


SATURDAY LUNCH SEMINAR, NOVEMBER 2 12:00–1:30PM


SATURDAY AFTERNOON, NOVEMBER 2 1:30–4PM




What Pastors Should Say—and Not Say—about Sex (For pastors and leaders)
In this discussion we will clarify the pastoral role to help pastors understand more clearly what they should and shouldn’t say about sex—and to whom, when, and where.


Sex, the Church, and the World: How Do We Deal with Difference?
This final lecture will set out principles of both church life and public life that can guide Christians in positive, faithful engagement with people whose values and practices differ from the Biblical norm of chastity.





Ambassadors For Christ in Canada presents our 7th Annual




LOVE CONFERENCE




A gathering of young adults who yearn for truth and freedom in love and sexuality. We are honoured to have Dr. John Stackhouse as our conference speaker this year.


In a world of confusion, it is a place to seek the truth and gain clarity through worship, teaching of the Word, and ministry in the power of the Spirit.


Our passion is to equip young adults to live freely and to enable them to pursue wholeness, according to Jesus’ culture and value. We are glad to co-host Love Conference with CCF at UBC.
