The church needs more video materials to care for this group

          64.4% of the people believe that their churches need to provide relevant video materials for relevant groups and their families in caring for LGBTQ+. 63.5% believe that the church should hold relevant lectures; 58.8% believe that the help of relevant books and materials is needed. (This question is multiple choice).

 

It is urgent to equip brothers and sisters

         According to the statistical results, we found that there are many LGBTQ+ friends around us who need our care. However, the counseling and resources provided by the church are very limited. We see a strong need to provide truth-driven teaching in churches and shepherding to this group. On the one hand, the church can conduct various seminars and provide modern media and video materials to help her congregation have a deeper understanding to the LGBTQ+ community. On the other hand, the church must encourage her congregation to take the initiative to care for the LGBTQ+ community in the ways like Jesus. It is our urgent work.
