The Legacy Institute delivers educational resources that empower people to be whole in a sexually broken culture.
We believe this process begins in the home and is reinforced through the church, private schools and community organizations that work with youth and family.
At The Legacy Institute, we see parents as the primary sexual educators of their own children. Parents have been given the responsibility to teach their children about the sacred nature of life, the power of authentic love and the lasting influence of their legacy. They are the most qualified to raise the next generation of children to be whole individuals who can enter into lifelong, healthy marriage relationships. To be sure, other influential adults will be part of this important process, so it is the mission of The Legacy Institute to equip parents and their purposeful delegates with language, tools and resources to do just that.
A Unique Approach to Sexuality Education
While most sexuality education focuses on sexual expression as a physical act, both scripture and science paint a much bigger picture of sexuality, so at The Legacy Institute, our goal is to create educational materials that portray the truth of sexuality with broader brush strokes as well:
Presented together, these perspectives give parents and educators a larger, more inspiring vision of sexuality with which to educate the next generation.
- From a scriptural perspective, we reveal the essential picture of our sexuality: our creator’s gift of life to us, in our “maleness” and “femaleness,” was the intentional mechanism by which we are to be fruitful, loving, life-giving beings who reflect God’s image in our wholeness and pass this wholeness on to future generations.
- From a scientific perspective, we uncover the essential truth of our sexuality: empirical data from both hard and soft sciences in fields as diverse as biology, neurology, psychology, reproductive health, sociology and anthropology provide “material” support for the theory behind the scriptural model for sexual relationships.
- From a practical perspective, we bring to light the essential purpose for our sexuality: when we live with sexual integrity, the fruit of everyday relationships is evident in the formation of strong marriages, healthy families and truly progressive communities, all of which help to re-adjust the culture in a positive way.
