The mission of the Sexual & Gender Identity Institute is, from a Christian worldview, to further our understanding of sexual and gender identity, and the intersection of these identities with religious identity, and to be a resource to the church and to the broader culture. We do this through research, training, and consultation.
Mark Yarhouse and Julia Sadusky present a book for all readers who care about or work with gender-diverse youth, casting a vision for practically engaging and ministering to teens navigating gender-identity concerns.
