Dr. Christopher Yuan

Individual Interview Location: 32:00

Dr. Christopher Yuan has taught at the Bible at Moody Bible Institute for more than 10 years, and his speaking ministry on faith and sexuality has reached five continents. He speaks at conferences, on college campuses and in churches. He has co-authored with his mother their memoir (now in seven languages), Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son’s Journey to God, A Broken Mother’s Search for Hope, and he is also the author of Giving a Voice to the Voiceless. Christopher graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 2005, Wheaton College Graduate School in 2007 with a master of arts in biblical exegesis and received his doctorate of ministry in 2014 from Bethel Seminary. Dr. Yuan’s forthcoming book, Holy Sexuality and the Gospel: Sex, Desire and Relationships Shaped by God’s Grand Story, will be released in November 2018. Dr. Yuan articulates a biblical view of sexuality through the narrative of his personal transformation from an agnostic gay man to a Bible professor. Not only did God turn his unbelief into belief, but God also freed him from the bondage of drugs and promiscuity. This inspirational story of redemption and grace transcends the topic of sexual identity touching on issues such as drug addiction, promiscuity, incarceration and HIV.
