what?

Come hear a powerful testimony from Dr. Christopher Yuan as he articulates a biblical view of sexuality through the narrative of his personal transformation from an agnostic gay man to a Bible professor. Not only does God turn his unbelief into belief, but God also freed him from the bondage of drugs and promiscuity. This inspirational story of redemption and grace transcends the topic of sexual identity touching on issues such as drug addiction, promiscuity, incarceration, and HIV.

Dr. Yuan's message of redemption is one that points to our Heavenly Father who is calling all of us prodigals to run to Him. Christopher casts a compelling vision of not embracing our sexuality, but embracing Christ, thus shattering the paradigms of gay and straight and pointing us toward the biblical standard of holy sexuality.

Dr. Leon and Angela Yuan have experienced much heartache due to a prodigal son who embraced homosexuality. But, God has given them the grace to rely upon His power to change the unchangeable and focus upon their own daily renewal and transformation. Angela and Christopher share their amazing journey in a book (now in seven languages), Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son's Journey to God, A Broken Mother's Search for Hope.
