and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away
every tear from their eyes.

Speaker: : Dr Melvin W Wong          

A timely seminar to provide practical information on gender identity issues affecting today¡¯s believers, including children and teenagers. This is a great opportunity for the Body of Christ in Singapore to hear and learn from Dr Melvin Wong, an eminently-qualified professional with a calling and passion, and vast experience in helping those struggling with their sexual orientations. This seminar is designed to educate Churches and Christians. Parents, teachers, educators, social workers, counsellors, pastors of children and youth ministries will find it particularly beneficial.


Is sexuality and gender orientation inborn or learned? How will our actions affect our children¡¯s and youth¡®s perception of what it means to be masculine or feminine? How do we respond with wisdom when we encounter gender-confused individuals, including children? These are crucial questions bombarding many Christians in today¡¯s increasingly gender-confused world in which our young people are growing up. There are just so many myths about gender issues and uncertainties about the best ways to raise gender-confident children and youth. We need sure and definite answers to help ourselves and our young ones. Come and find out from Dr Wong about how early childhood parenting can affect a child¡¯s gender identity and orientation. Discover the psychological birth of the human infant, gender identity imprinting and development, disorder and gender identify formation stages. Understand the critical periods when your sons and daughters will develop gender security and identify themselves with their birth gender. Learn ways and bring back practical steps to help the young people in our midst develop gender confidence.
