About Dr. Yuan:

Dr. Yuan is a highly sought-after expert whose book, Holy Sexuality and the Gospel, was named 2020 book of the year for social issues by Outreach Magazine

What to expect:

As confusion abounds about sexuality and gender, Dr. Yuan powerfully articulates that sex, desire, relationships, and identity are shaped by God’s grand design. Through the narrative of his personal transformation from an agnostic gay man to a Bible professor, and informed by his graduate-level education in biblical languages, theology, and even health sciences, Dr. Yuan casts a compelling vision of not embracing our sexuality, but embracing Christ – shattering the paradigms of gay and straight, and pointing us toward the biblical standard of holy sexuality.

The doors will open at 8:00 am. Snacks, water and coffee will be served; the Fireside Cafe will be open if you’d like to purchase beverages.
