Next on the Arcadia Agenda...

On Thursday, April 3rd Arcadia Christian Fellowship is hosting Chad Thompson, author of "Loving Homosexuals As Jesus Would" and regular speaker. We heard him share some of his testimony (formerly homosexual) at the Jubilee Conference in February and thought his message would open some lines of communication within the Arcadia community. The gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) representation on campus is strong, and since the discussion of homosexuality and Christianity is such a hot topic, we have committed this event to much prayer. Read below for more on Chad and his mesage...


Chad Thompson is author of the book Loving Homosexuals as Jesus Would. His book tries to bridge the gap between the evangelical world and the gay and lesbian community; To show LGBT people that Christians who oppose them politically are not always motivated by hatred or homophobia, and to challenge conservative Christians to put aside their plastic rhetoric and show the LGBT community a kind of love that produces true humanitarianism. Chad has appeared in Time Magazine, World Magazine, Charisma Magazine, Christianity Today, The Washington Times,, and Outreach Magazine named Chad’s book the best target ministry resource of 2004.
