Weekend Message Takeaway: “Out of a Far Country”

 This weekend, we concluded our Sexuality and the Gospel series with a special message by Moody Bible Institute professor, author, and speaker Dr. Christopher Yuan. In this message, we heard Dr. Yuan, who once identified as gay and agnostic, and his parents, Dr. Leon and Angela, share their journey of redemption and restoration and what it means to walk in holy sexuality.

Watch the video below to see a few highlights from the message and share it with your friends via social media. To watch the message in its entirety, click here.


If you weren’t able to attend service this past weekend, we highly encourage you to watch Dr. Christopher’s story in its entirety by clicking here. His story is a powerful witness to God’s glory and His power to transform a person's life. It's also a great testimony to share with someone who is struggling with their identity.

In addition, Dr. Yuan conducted a Q&A session after service, where he answered many of the most important, commonly asked, and relevant questions regarding sexuality, identity, and holiness. This video will be available by Wednesday, September 11 and will be viewable on this page.
