Purity culture told us to wait to have sex because one day (for sure) we would get married and have “really hot sex.” Today we invite you to examine another aspect of the premarital sex conversation – celibacy. But let’s re-imagine it with Pieter Valk and Dani Treweek, a therapist and a minister who are committed to living without sex as single people.
Pieter Valk is a licensed professional counselor, the director of EQUIP (equipyourcommunity.org), and cofounder of the Nashville Family of Brothers (familyofbrothers.org), an ecumenically Christian brotherhood for men called to vocational singleness. He helps churches love gay people and celibate Christians find family. Follow Pieter @pieterlvalk on all platforms.
