Stand Firm Love True Conference

Stand Firm, Love True Conference

Sex is too important to leave it to culture and schools.



For 20 years, PEACE has been empowering families to positively disciple and mentor their children on difficult conversations such as sexuality.

Research has shown that the first thing a child learns becomes their filter for that situation. When it comes to making healthy sexual risk-avoidance choices (abstinence), children/youth make decisions based upon a consistent sexual risk avoidance (SRA) message that comes from multiple directions – parents, church and (ideally) the school.

Unfortunately, parents and the church say they feel ill-equipped, and when youth have questions they often do not feel they can ask parents or the church, so they look to secular society – media, internet porn, peers, and school as their authority.

So PEACE has created an event to help equip and empower parents and teens on the issue of sexual health from an informed faith perspective.  The Stand Firm, Love True Conference is held in cities and towns across Canada, and offers some of the best Christian teaching and mentorship materials available.

Below you can learn about the two sessions offered at this conference event:
