If we don't allow room to have conversations with men and women seeking answers to difficult questions, we are giving that privilege to someone else who might not have their best interests at heart. Your unique relationships offer an opportunity to stand in the gap and share a new perspective on life with those around you. You may be the first person to dive into an individual's worldview and challenge them with Gospel-centered truths that they may have never heard before.
ELEVATE, created in partnership with VirTru Training, aims to offer tools to help men and women understand how, not what, to think about sexual integrity. It's important to refrain from looking at conversations about sexual integrity with a "pass" or "fail" mindset. Instead, look at these conversations as an opportunity to share truth with compassion and hope.
ELEVATE will empower you to equip men and women with practical resources to help them succeed! You'll help individuals in your community assess their personal goals and set up systems to achieve them. You'll help them evaluate relationships, set boundaries, recognize destructive habits, establish accountability mentors and much more!
Each session includes two videos and corresponding handouts. The first video is designed specifically for the mentor to watch prior to the visit with their mentee. This content should be viewed without the mentee present and is intended to help prepare the mentor for the visit by offering conversation starters, questions and ideas of how to incorporate faith into the topic being addressed..
The second video is for the mentor and mentee to watch together. Time should be left after the video to allow for meaningful discussion about the topic presented in the session.
VirTru's ELEVATE course will offer you the assistance needed to craft an intentional experience for your mentee, allowing you to focus on the unique needs of each individual. Because each person is different, each of the conversations you have will vary. With that in mind, this series is not the end-all. The relationship formed during the ELEVATE course will offer opportunities to share the love of Christ and help affirm a man or woman's desire to pursue a path of sexual integrity.
