What’s the Challenge?

Parents of gay kids are asking pastors like you for help. Maybe you feel overwhelmed, scared, and alone—afraid to say or do the wrong thing but pressured from all sides to take action.

Pastors are spread thin across many priorities, but still need more expertise to confidently lead these important conversations. Equip is here to carry some of that burden as you do the hard work of educating your congregation about sexuality and caring for each family’s needs individually.
