Welcome to The Shaun Tabatt Show! In this episode I facilitate a roundtable discussion with Adam Barr, Ron Citlau and David Kyle Foster on LGBTQ issues in church, culture and ministry. Here are the topics covered in this conversation.
About Today's Guests:
Adam T. Barr (MDiv, ThM) serves as lead pastor at Peace Church near Grand Rapids Michigan. In addition to his work in the local church, Adam launched and leads Borderlands, a ministry that fosters next generation leadership development and served on the board of RCA Integrity, a renwal movement in the Reformed Church in America. Adam lives with his wife, Jennifer, and four sons.
In his work as a writer, Adam travels the borderlands where faith and life intersect, attempting to help readers encounter Scripture as God's Word, clear, compelling and alive.
Ron Citlau graduated from the University of California, Riverside and Western Theological Seminary. He has served in ministry positions in Southern California and Kansas City. He is the pastor of Calvary Church in Orland Park, Illinois, part of the Reformed Church in America.
Ron struggled with same-sex attraction his whole life and has worked with and walked alongside many others who have struggled with sexual brokenness, as well as equipping pastoral leaders to serve those dealing with sexual sin. He also worked with Andrew Comiskey, producing curriculum on sexual healing now used by Desert Stream Ministries in hundreds of churches throughout the country. When he isn't working, he loves to be with his wife, Amy, and their four boys: Jack, Sawyer, Eli, and Crosby.
David Kyle Foster, founder of Mastering Life Ministries, holds an M.Div. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a D.Min. from Trinity School for Ministry. He also hosts Pure Passion, a televised outreach equipping believers to minister to those trapped in sexual sin and brokenness.
