For those who are dealing with pastors or churches that are trying to get on top of the sexuality matters, The River Conference recently held a stellar conference inviting Dr. Preston Sprinkle. Bishop Thomas reports that Dr. Sprinkle’s theology, practice of compassionate ministry and coaching to churches on how to approach the matter of LGBTQ matters is very much in line with the essential posture of the FMCUSA. Following is an event at which Preston will be presenting.
