Our vision is a world free of sexual exploitation and brokenness. It is bold, but it is sure—Jesus will return and make all things new. Until that day, we pursue a world free by equipping followers of Jesus to experience and model the pursuit of God’s love, purity, and justice in a sexualized culture.

In this episode, we sit down with Ryan Welsh, lead pastor of teaching for The Village Church (Southlake) in Southlake, Texas, and a wealth of knowledge in the topics of ethics and human sexuality, particularly in the area of gender and human embodiment.

We talk about how we got here (sexuality in the year 2021) and Ryan gives us great insight into how to approach conversations regarding sexuality in every day life. 

Ryan teaches as an adjunct instructor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is co-author of Raising The Dust (with Gregg Allison). He earned an M.Div. at Western Seminary and a D.Min. in homiletics from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He is currently a Ph.D. student in ethics at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Ryan and his wife, Kate, have two kids.
