True Love Waits
"True Love Waits" is a national campaign challenging students
to remain sexually pure until marriage. Even youth who are now or have
been sexually active can make a new commitment understanding that every
day God gives us the opportunity to make new choices for our lives.
They will also come to know and accept God's love and forgiveness. The
objective of this program is not to put youth on a guilt trip but to
get their attention, have them examine their values, their walk with
God, to understand that " True Love" is patient and that there
is no such thing as "safe sex." The goal of the campaign is
to have students make commitments and sign pledge cards stating,
Believing that true love waits, I make a commitment
to God, myself, my family, those I date, my future mate, and future children
to be sexual pure until the day I enter a covenant marriage relationship.
This class is taught as an alternative program
