Identity Project Leader Training

We are so happy to have you join with us on this journey of sharing the truth of the Gospel in love. The Identity Project is a project by Faith Beyond Belief. It was created as a Christian response to the needs of Christian schools, youth groups, and churches to grapple with the issues of sexuality and gender.

As you know, the project consists of creating a discussion group or club that provides a safe space to talk about issues such sexuality, gender and pornography.

The discussions are facilitated by a Christian volunteer selected by the local community who will approach these conversations from a Christian worldview.

We would like to invite you to this years training session, which will be held in Red Deer Alberta at the Koinonia Christian School on August 22nd and 23th. We will be going over the material for the Identity Project, having a detailed question and answer period and having a guest speaker coming to share on how to facilitate good discussion to get the most out of your group.

When you sign up for the Identity Project through our Faith Beyond Belief website, the cost for two coordinators to attend is covered (you will receive coupon codes in your introduction email). There will be a cost of $50 per additional person to attend. Both days will run from 10 am to 4 pm.

Accommodations are not included, but we have arranged for a discount at the Holiday Inn Express on Orr Drive. It includes breakfast and has a pool. The hotel is located four minutes away from the school. You can book under “Identity Project Training” by calling 587.457.7829.

Step 1 - Purchase the Identity Project Membership.

Step 2 - Check for your Introduction email (within 24 Hours)

Step 3 - Register your group leader for the Training Seminar with the coupon code in your welcome email

We look forward to seeing you all in August and working with you and your Christian community to help address these issues with grace and truth through out the year.

Ambassador Training—TOTAL TRUTH with Nancy Pearcey

Total Truth: Living with Integrity in a Post-Truth Society

FEBRUARY 9—CALGARY | CENTER STREET CHURCH | 10:00 - 11:30am

How do we present the Christian truth in a culture that no longer believes in truth? Nancy Pearcey, professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University, explains how Western culture has lost its grasp on truth and how Christians can communicate more effectively with our secular friends and family members. And don’t think Christians are immune—many young people in the church are absorbing post-truth trends as well. To live with integrity, we need to start with a biblical view of truth.

Nancy Pearcey is the author of the recently released Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality. She is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University and editor-at-large of the Pearcey Report. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, Finding Truth, and two ECPA Gold Medallion Award Winners: Total Truth and How Now Shall We Live (which was coauthored with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson). A former agnostic, Pearcey has spoken at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, USC, and Dartmouth, and was hailed in The Economist as "America's pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual."

Unchanging Truth in Transitioning Times

Everyday Conversations on Gender and Sexuality

How can Christians navigate discussions on gender identity when friends or family members come out as transgender? How do we speak on gender and sexuality issues with grace and truth? In these two sessions, we will examine why Christians ought to trust God’s commands on gender and sexuality as both true and good.
