CHURCH RESOURCES


THE CENTER FOR FAITH, SEXUALITY & GENDER

The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender is a collaboration of Christian pastors, leaders and theologians who aspire to be the Church's most trusted source of theologically sound teaching and practical guidance on questions related to sexuality and gender.

We seek to address two primary needs in the church. One, to help leaders cultivate a more robust biblical ethic of marriage, sexuality and gender. Two, to help churches and organizations create a safe and compassionate environment for LGBT+ people, their families, and anyone wrestling with their sexuality or gender identity.

To meet these two needs, we seek to educate not only pastors and leaders, but to help these leaders educate the people they lead by providing small group material, educational videos, podcasts, blogs, youth curriculum, and other resources.

Pick one of their four suggested graphics for the day or search for your own. Downloading is quick, and the graphics even come with a couple of caption ideas to make posting easy. 

More Options

Our graphics were created with social in mind, but they’re far more flexible than that. Each graphic comes in square format, 16×9, and blank versions of both. You can use them for screens and even print. Plus we share links to the fonts we used so you can get tons of mileage out of the graphics. You can even use your image editor to add your own logo on the images.

ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING VIDEO

It’s a term we wish didn’t exist, but since 2006 the U.S. has experienced one such event with four or more fatalities every 2.9 months. As those charged with watching over our church members and communities with vigilance and wisdom, pastors must take this modern threat seriously no matter where we serve. A new training video has been created to help you and your team make plans for prevention, active response, and follow-up and long-term care.
