(Note: this session is for parents, teachers, and youth ministers. Click here for the February 20 young adults’ session)
In this presentation, Dr. Mark Kolodziej will be speaking about Christian relationship and dating ethics — providing parents, teachers, and those ministering to youth and young adults with the scientific evidence which supports and complements Scripture and Church teaching on the area of sexuality and relationships.
Also, this session will provide attendees with resources in supporting young adults and youth in the areas of dating and relationships that will increase the chances of a long-term commitment that will be satisfying and moral, from the perspective of the Christian faith.
This session is the second in a 3-part series on helping young adults and youth to discern how best to have a relationship that is respectful to self, the other person, and to God. The bottom line is our culture is not teaching the truth when it comes to dating and relationships, and science proves this!
