Pieter Valk's talk at the Leader Track.
Shepherding a local church or other ministry through conversations about gender and sexuality requires both gospel compassion and practical wisdom. The Leaders Focused Interest Track is a guided discussion that is designed to offer pastors and other leaders in a variety of church and ministry contexts an opportunity to develop skills in both of these areas.
Pieter is the Director of EQUIP, a Nashville-based team of missionary consultants who help churches become places where LGBT+ people can belong and thrive according to a traditional sexual ethic. He is also a clinical mental health counselor that serves LGBT+ students at a local Christian university. Pieter is motivated by the pain and beauty of his story and the stories of fellow gay Christians submitting their sexualities to the Lordship of Christ. Learn more about his story here.
