Posture Shift Country Wide

Lead Them Home's Posture Shift teaching has emerged as a national model for equipping church and para-church ministry leaders to better reflect the Gospel to LGBTQ persons while maintaining a healthy framework for biblical orthodoxy. We train board of directors, executive staff, national leadership teams, regional leaders and local church pastor teams and elder boards.  

Posture Shift has been incorporated into the pastoral psychology curriculum at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and is presented in various venues at Christian colleges. Leadership Journal featured Lead Them Home's work in 2014. We have a decade of experience partnering with and equipping international campus, student and youth ministries.

In 2015, we have teaching events booked in 16 states across the US. Nearly all of our events are private allowing leadership teams to process this complex challenge within their ministry context. 

Ministry leaders may request a Posture Shift proposal by contacting us. Extensive national, regional and local leader references are available upon request.

02/14: About Doubt - Central MA

Lead Them Home is pleased to present Taming the Power of Doubt to college students from campuses throughout the Northeast. This message will help students who are daily bombarded by voices tempting them to give up on a radical life in Christ. Will they press on - or look back and give up? How they handle the powerful force of doubt will determine their future. Lead Them Home will encourage them to exchange doubt for radical faith. 

- Doubt: The Temptation to Look Back -
The Bible instructs us to press on. When doubt creeps in, though, we are at risk to looking back. Suddenly, the sins (or things or relationships) we surrendered at the Cross seem appealing once again. If you've ever looked back - or even gone back - how can you recapture an enduring faith?

- What Evangelical Leaders Are Saying -

Posture Shift offers a radical missional vision filled with practical insights for expanding the Gospel's reach and effectiveness regarding one of the greatest challenges facing the evangelical church today. It offers a dramatic call to live out a loving posture all while maintaining a solid framework for orthodoxy. Posture Shift reminds us that the Gospel is powerful when we authentically live out God's love in people's lives just the way Jesus did. Every church and ministry team needs Posture Shift.

The Reality: Bullying Kills Kids

Lead Them Home always attempts to increase understanding about gay teen suicide by highlighting local cases of gay teens that have died by suicide. We explore who died and why they died. We look at the pain they experienced in order to elevate our understanding of risk factors that gay teens face. 

The goal is not to assign blame. The goal is to reveal the dangers gay teens face.

Every leadership team we work with is deeply grieved by the reality of kids' dying. They would do anything to have had a chance to intervene and stop this kind of tragedy from ever occurring.

A few leaders, however, feel uncomfortable and possibly a bit defensive. They do not lack compassion, but they know "the inside story" about why a kid really died. "He did not get accepted into medical school" or "Her girlfriend broke up with her."

It is true that a young person may attempt suicide following a defeat or rejection. However, we must understand that a history of bullying significantly magnifies suicidality. Personal defeat or rejection may be the final trigger, but these painful life experiences usually are NOT the final trigger for most young people who do not have a history of bullying.

The point is not to question the truth of "the inside story" - but to remind us that a history of bullying makes a young person highly vulnerable to giving up when a defeat or rejection occurs.
