Embracing Love & Truth:
Understanding and journeying with same-sex attracted individuals

  • Homosexuality is a topic that many Christians are uncomfortable with. For some, it is the struggle with finding the balance between God’s truth and extending love and grace to the individual. This radical workshop offers a clear biblical perspective on homosexuality, coupled with a much-needed pastoral perspective on the role of the church and the believer in their journey and care. You will learn God’s heart for His people without compromising His commitment to holiness and how the Holy Spirit is at work at transforming lives that are willing to surrender to Him.
  • Rev. Tryphena Law is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God (AG) Malaysia. She is also the Executive Director of PLUC Events Sdn Bhd, an organisation in Malaysia that provides pastoral care and pastoral counselling for those struggling with gender issues. As one who has struggled with and later overcome same-sex attraction, she has acquired deep insights into gender identity which have uniquely equipped her to journey with homosexual strugglers. Over the past 19 years, Tryphena has gained vast experience in counselling both struggling individuals as well as families impacted by gender issues. Recognised also as a vibrant and engaging multilingual communicator, she is frequently invited to speak in churches of different denominations, universities, schools and camps both locally and internationally.
