Thank you for visiting this page and for everything you do to shepherd us. On this page, we hope to provide resources that will assist you in guiding God’s people according to his plan for human sexuality. If you are not finding something which would be helpful on this page, please email Kate. Also, please feel free to visit our other topic pages, as they do have resources which may be helpful for those you encounter in your own pastoral ministry.
