If I could give one piece of advice to youth workers concerning gay students within their ministry and/or community, it would be this: Love gay students with the same degree Christ loves you.
This past April, I was a part of a youth worker discussion on ministering to gay teens. The video chat is hosted by Remedy Live, through a show they produce for youth workers called, “Messy Ministry.” If you haven’t checked out this online ministry & web station, you need to check out Remedy Live today, and pass on the link to your students. God is doing such great things through this ministry.
The video below (about 30-minutes long) offers practical ministry help in reaching out to gay teens either in your ministry or community. The other youth workers and I chat about homosexuality in general, loving students where they are, and teaching essentials. Watch. Take notes. Pass along. Engage.
Additionally, here’s a link to my book, Ministering to Gay Teenagers by Simply Youth Ministry.
Thanks for loving your students,
