The Gay Teen Test

The Gay Teen Test

What’s our vision for churches? That they would pass EQUIP’s Gay Teen Test. Our Gay Teen Test asks whether what gay teens in your church hear and see sets them up to fail or flourish. Does a mix of silence and hypocrisy in your church lead teens to reject a traditional sexual ethic and, often, God altogether because of their confusion, shame, fear, loneliness, and hopelessness? Or does your church courageously lead compassionate conversations about God’s love and plan for all people, setting up gay teens to embrace the beauty and the burden of the gospel?

Boy Erased Review: Church, Repent

Boy Erased Review: Church, Repent

Boy Erased highlights a theologically and psychologically destructive school of thought. The practice of gay conversion therapy has led millions of LGBT+ Christians to lose their faith and commit suicide. And these ideas and practices continue today, albeit in more subtle ways. The Church must repent of what we have done, and we must make sure it never happens again.

For you. For them. For EVERYONE.

For you. For them. For EVERYONE.

Pastors, potential donors, and friends often ask us, “I know you focus on equipping churches, but whom do you hope will benefit from the work? Non-Christian LGBT+ people? Gay Christians? Future generations?” Our answer: “All of them…but it’s complicated.”
