Shawnee rally to spotlight teen sex issues
A youth rally April 18 in Shawnee will feature Pam Stenzel speaking on issues of teen sexuality. Shawnee-Wesley UMC is sponsoring the free event at Fire Lake Arena. Theme is "Purge the Urge to Merge."
Churches’ youth groups are especially invited to the rally, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the venue, 18145 Range Line Road, Shawnee.
Wesley UMC leaders said Stenzel’s personal story is a powerful one. "Nobody told me" is what she often hears in counseling sessions with young women, Stenzel states.
She travels internationally and has spoken to more than 500,000 young people on issues of sexuality and abstinence. She has made TV appearances, written curriculum for public schools, and produced videos including "Take a Look in the Mirror" and "The High Cost of Free Love."
