Workshop – Following Jesus in a sexualised world

Time: 9:30 Sunday
Where: Elm Fireside
Style: Interactive Workshop

The title might sound like an oxymoron, but let’s just call a spade a spade… We want to follow Jesus, but we live in an oversexualised society! You can’t go 10min without being bombarded with messages, ideas or images that promote sex and sexuality. So how do we as leaders walk the line? What does the bible reckon about it? How can we lead by example in this area so that our young people will follow? In order to do the best in  our roles and responsibilities, we need to address some of the issues in our own lives regarding this very important  topic.



Valentine Tauamiti


Community Partnership Manager
The Parenting Place
Young Adults Pastor Greenlane Christian Centre

Valentine  is a New Zealand born Samoan, who cut his teeth on chasing sheep, playing cricket, and searching for live-meat in the bush(hunting). It was his childhood dream to host Country Calendar, but because he is far too young for the desired demographic he has applied himself to youth-work, community development, and public speaking until the day arises that Country Calendar may want to hire a Samoan. He currently resides in Auckland, where he manages Community Partnerships for The Parenting Place, and is also the Musterer/Pastor of Young Adults at Greenlane Christian Centre. However he is a one eyed Cantabrian, so don’t call him an Aucklander. In his spare time he plays rugby, helps out with a small hunting apparel business, and likes to people watch.
