Apparently, everything is bigger in Texas, including our sexual appetite. Not only is Austin the Live Music Capital of the World — it’s also the “Capital of Copulation,” at least according to Men’s Health magazine’s October 2010 issue. The magazine cites Austin’s #1 ranking based on categories like condom sales, birth rates, sex toy sales, and rates of STDs.
Sex happens here
How does sexual and spiritual curiosity mix for a church like Gateway in Austin, TX?
Sexual experimentation has been a part of the American culture for many decades. There are more than a few thrills found in this experiment. However, there are also damaged relationships, struggles with security, brokenness, and frustrations. As a church we are open to exploring the area of sexuality and spirituality. We want everyone to experience true sexual wholeness and lasting fulfillment in their relationships.

How can we find sexual fulfillment and wholeness?
Check out the following messages we presented during a Sunday morning series entitled, ‘Let’Sexpress’. The five messages focused on different audiences for sexual understanding and experience: God Sex, Married Sex, Single Sex, Unfaithful Sex and Same Sex.
The message on same sex attraction is particularly interesting. There is a very entangled history around this topic in the recent past. We hope you are willing to engage us with this topic.
How does sexuality and spirituality mix at a church like Gateway. There is certainly an entangled history between the church and the topic of the gay lifestyle, homosexuality or same sex relationships… even the words can trigger feelings of being judged and insensitive. The last message of the ‘Let’Sexpress’ series ended with this message on Same Sex; I hope you’ll watch and engage with us….
