This past weekend saw Calvary Grace, the church where I serve as a pastor, host a conference on The Goodness of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. We ran a men's pre conference track which featured, Clint Humfrey, Jeff Jones and Terry Stauffer. And Jodi Ware, the wife of Bruce Ware, taught the women's track. Owen Strachan, the president of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, was our plenary speaker and spoke three times, here, here and here. I also gave a message in one the main sessions.
Never has there been a conference in Canada with this teaching on biblical sexuality from a complementarian worldview. This was pioneer stuff and was well attended and well received.
We believe that the area of biblical sexuality is where the gospel is confronting culture today (see here for an article I recently wrote for Christian Today). We also believe that complementarity should be seen as a worldview. God is a complementarian triune God, who creates a complementarian universe in which men and women fit together in a complementary way, physically and functionally. God has designed it this way for his glory and the flourishing of single men and women, marriages, children and all churches. Our desire is to embrace, promote and publicly confess complementarian manhood, womanhood and marriage.
