On October 9, we welcome Kara Haug, the creator of Grace Unbound, a ministry dedicated to sexuality education rooted in the spirit.
Grace Unbound's PURPOSE:
To provide comprehensive sexual education that call upon all areas in our lives and how they impact our whole selves; as well as providing a place of support where shame can be replaced by grace and healing. We believe in, support and are advocates for the LGBTQ Community.
Grace Unbound's POINT-OF-VIEW:
To acknowledge that God created us as spiritual and sexual beings and as a church we need to minister to and support the needs of the whole person.
Kara Haug is the creator of Grace Unbound. She has her BA in Psychology from Hope College in Holland, MI., a Masters in Theological Studies from Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA., as well as a Post-Grad Certificate in Sexual Health Education and Counseling from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Youth ministry and foster care have been her main career focus.
Kara always asks the big questions; looking for connections to our world and the way people interact in this world together. Through her experiences in human services, working with youth and the ministry, she has seen the way sexuality and our relationships with God (or lack thereof) affects us to our cores. This began her fascination with the topics of sexuality and theology. She believes these are the two most intimate parts of a person and that they affect our daily decisions and our politics.
Kara is available as a resource for your congregation or non-profit. She may be a consultant for your program, or as a speaker at an event. If interested in seeking guidance from Kara or having her speak please fill out the contact form.
Kara lives in Sacramento, California with her pastor husband and her two young children.
