Sex is more than a natural response to attraction — there is more to our sexuality than meets the eye. Scripture teaches that, rather than mere physical expression, sexuality is a sacred gift from God that shapes us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
On January 24-26, 2014, Second Presbyterian will host the annual Christian Life Conference with speakers from Second and the Christian Psychological Center. At this year's conference, titled "Sex | Life," we will discuss a biblical perspective of sexuality, and the way it affects each of our lives.
Second Presbyterian Church pastors, including Sandy Willson, Mitchell Moore, Todd Erickson, Dick Cain, and Barton Kimbro, will be our conference speakers this year. Each will address a different topic within our theme, from single and married sexuality to sexual politics, throughout the conference (see full schedule below).
Christian Psychological Center (CPC) provides psychological care in a Christian context to the Memphis and greater mid-South community. Members of the CPC will lead conference break-out sessions, particularly on the topic of sexual healing, on Friday afternoon.
Visible Music College students will lead our worship on Friday and Saturday evening. The school's mission is to train and equip musicians, technicians, and business professionals in skill and character for effective service in the music industry and in the church.
