Friday April 21, 7-9pm
7-8pm – Dr. Denny Burk: “The Transgender Test”
Transgenderism presents a pressing challenge to what Christianity has always taught about God’s image-bearers. It is a direct challenge to biblical authority and is an open contradiction of the Bible’s message about male and female. Faithful Christians will have to understand these challenges before they can answer them with gospel faithfulness.
8-9pm – Panel Discussion/Q&A: Charles Stolfus, Denny Burk, and Andrew Walker
Saturday April 22, 9-12pm
9-10am – Andrew Walker: “Broken Reeds and Broken Bodies: Love and the Gospel Response to Transgenderism”
Amidst the cultural and political debates around transgenderism, individuals who suffer from gender dysphoria get caught in the crossfire. The church’s response to the transgender revolution requires us to be a community that practices both conviction and compassion to troubled souls who find themselves in a Genesis 3 world.
10-11:30am – Panel Discussion/Q&A: Charles Stolfus, Denny Burk, and Andrew Walker
