Christian ministry leaders and staff who are seeking godly support and training from a community of their peers.
Counselors, therapists, coaches, and mentors interested in continuing education and the warm blessing of a caring, professional community.
Every believer who has a heart to see the Body of Christ healthy and vibrant, living out God's design for sexuality and wholeness.

About this year's Summit theme

Let’s Walk (500 x 250 px)

Jesus walked among and welcomed the wounded, confused, and lost people of his day. He also went out of his way to meet many that would otherwise never have known of his love.  SILS 2024 will focus on how pastors, ministry leaders, and clinicians can reach further into the culture to help those too afraid to step forward on their own. We will learn about and experience how to create a culture of encounter in our homes, churches, offices, and communities.

- In Their Words -

Past attendees share their experiences at SILS:

"I'm overwhelmed at the collaboration and community that SILS has provided to battle together against the dark forces that seek to break and destroy God Centered Sexuality. A plethora of resources to encourage, uplift, and equip leaders, laity, counselors and all those who struggle with sexual brokenness.  A light in a dark world. Thank You."

"Despite the fact that I do not have my own organization and do not lead in my church, God drew me to attend SILS. I was so blessed there! I was encouraged to learn that as an engaged Christian, I matter! I am a change agent and my heart speaks the same language as the SILS community."

"I am so thankful for the invitation to join SILS this year. It was my first time to attend and it was way more than I expected! I can't recall having such a positive experience at a conference/summit in the past. It was refreshing for me. I came away feeling I was ready to conquer the enemy!"

"This year's summit was amazing!!!!!!!"

"As an exhibitor and participant of the event, I certainly enjoyed the exchanges of conversation and resources that I hoped would happen. However, I did not expect to relate to many others with rarely shared stories like my own. Moreover, I never would have anticipated the gift of continued healing in such a profound manner. It was truly the Lord’s will and answered prayers that I was present. I have been deeply moved and my heart is overflowing with gratitude! I hope to remain connected and to see you all again soon."

"If you want to join a growing movement of people who are engaged and passionate, experienced and authentic about both sharing God's design for sexuality and caring for those wounded by the world's approach to sexuality, then come to SILS. You will benefit and this movement will be better with you involved."
