Pastor Blake Wilson and Wife of Houston Host Conference on Sex and the Gospel
We think churches have to be very careful how they approach these issues because sometimes they become too secular but if this couple can do it in a controlled environment with integrity and intellectually then maybe they are doing some good for people.
Read below what the Christian Post reported about the conference and their credentials:
According to the husband-and-wife duo leading Crossover Bible Fellowship, if more people viewed sex from God’s perspective, they might have fewer regrets and maybe even happier marriages.
But the Sex and The Gospel conference taking place April 5-6 at the nondenominational church in Houston, Texas, isn’t just for married couples or adults. Pastor Blake Wilson told The Christian Post that his message on Biblical sexuality was actually inspired years ago by a group of teens at a retreat.
“As my wife and I began to speak on sex, the kids really responded…and so from there we started getting more and more invitations to speak on sex. The next thing you know, it kind of developed into a series. I became a youth pastor and we started putting more and more teachings together on it because kids were basically saying, ‘Here’s what we’re facing and dealing with every day. These are the realities we’re dealing with in middle school and high school, and we never knew God had anything to say about these issues,” he said.
Wilson is lead pastor of the Houston-based Crossover Bible Fellowship, a congregation of 700-800 members with a strong youth presence. His wife, Dr. Ronique Wilson, leads CBF’s Wise Woman Project and has done research on how family and religious beliefs influence the sexual decision making and behaviors of young women.
Wilson is known for his Biblically-based curriculum on sex, having shared it with NBA teams, churches across the country and, most recently, at the Advance the Church conference in North Carolina, where he said the message was an eye-opener for some who were surprised “how Biblically-based the message was as it relates to the culture.”
“I think one of the things that came out of the conference the most is people being amazed at what God said,” he told CP. “We’ve just never really been taught well concerning sex.”
