This week’s interview features one of our 2020 National Convention speakers, Dr. Christopher Yuan. His powerful testimony 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. Christopher Yuan has taught the Bible at Moody Bible Institute for over 10 years and his speaking ministry on faith and sexuality has reached five continents. He speaks at conferences, on college campuses and in churches. He has co-authored with his mother their memoir (now in seven languages), Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son’s Journey to God, A Broken Mother’s Search for Hope, and he is also the author of Giving a Voice to the Voiceless.
