Sex, pregnancy, abortion and abuse will be the subjects of the upcoming King’s Trail Cowboy Church of Whitewright conference. The youth event “If We’re Honest: Don’t wake up love before its time” based on Solomon 8:4 will be held from 5-8:30 p.m. October 28.


The conference is open to high school age boys, girls and adults.


“I was driving home from work one day and God presented me with a vision of our church conducting a conference on these crucial topics with several speakers,” event coordinator Sherry Jeffcoat said.


The event will also address sensitive topics like restoration and pure living.


“We do not shame people,” she said. “Instead, we want our participants to be aware of responsible alternatives and Godly ways of living. And, we want them to know that they are loved and valued.”


The King’s Trail youth group will serve dinner from 5-6 p.m. which will be followed by praise and worship. After that, the girls and boys will meet in different parts of the church, and they will hear from visiting speakers who will present their testimonies.


“In the girls session, participants are reminded that in most unwed pregnancies, the father is out of the picture, Jeffcoat said. “Sharing from experience, the speakers address this difficulty and other realities.”


Information about the church’s Embrace Grace program will also be provided. It is a program for pregnant women ages 15-29 and is directed by Jeffcoat.


“In the boys’ session, participants are encouraged to treat girls with respect, and to remember that in God’s purpose, sexuality is a gift to be shared between a man and a woman in a Godly marriage,” Jeffcoat said. “They will leave knowing that manly living honors God’s purpose and respects girls.”


After the group sessions are complete, participants will unite in the sanctuary for testimony from a young married couple and a presentation on living a pure life.


All aspects of the conference are free and participants are encouraged to register online in advance. Registration may be completed at http://tinyurl.com/KTCCHONEST. For more information call Jeffcoat at 214-384-5233 or Rachel Moya at 469-207-6788.
