• Listened to week one of Culture Clash…thanks for leading me well! ~J.B. Windsor, ON
  • I just finished the second session of When Cultures Clash. Thank you so much for your conciliatory approach. Bless you for tackling this. I can’t wait to watch the next two. May you know God’s richest blessings for Jesus’ glory. ~B.K. Hamilton ON
  • I wanted to take a few minutes to write and let you know how much I appreciated the past four teachings on, “When Cultures Clash.” For me, those four lessons can be whittled down to one word. Compassion. As you are well aware, this subject has affected my family and me directly. But this isn’t about me and my family, it’s about the church and how we, the church, deal with the issue of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons who are attending Harvest and/or are thinking of attending. What better place for a LGBT person to be but in a church home filled with other sinners like you and I. As we were taught two Sundays ago, being affected by sin is not sin. We (sinners) need to be welcoming, loving and caring for all sinners. Compassion is a powerful thing. We all need it. Thanks for being our teacher.
  • I just wanted to thank you again for tackling same sex question. Obviously wasn’t easy. You put a ton of time, effort, research and prayer into it.  Delivery method was great as well. Sitting was a good idea, softer, less preachy style. All obviously thought out and intentional.
  • I have watched your series on When Cultures Clash and I am in admiration of how you have handled a difficult subject. I have to reflect on my own sins more rather than to be concerned about others sins. That is what I have taken away from the series so far. ~D.W. Newmarket ON
  • My wife and I were in Boston last weekend and missed the second teaching on Cultures Clash.  We watched it last night on line.  Great stuff. No fluff. No fillers. Just God’s truth. Really enjoyed it.  Loved the way you answered questions with questions. Thank you (and your family) for allowing God to use you as his vessel to carry nourishment to the flock. Can’t wait to be fed tomorrow. Blessings.
  • Pastor Todd, I came across your message and only watched the first session so far. I am in tears on my bathroom floor. I am that mother who has found out about her son’s struggle. We believe in staying on God’s truth but with love and prayer. Praying that our son will find his way back to the Lord and the same with his friend. The pain you described is the most painful and loneliest of walks one has to endure. We haven’t told many, only a few to guard our hearts. I loved your message so very much; it spoke to my heart and my soul. I am starting counseling, not for my son yet as he has to want it first, but for my husband and me. I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the sermons. May they speak to my heart as they did today. Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone for moms like me and giving us hope, encouragement, and making me feel a little less alone out there in this world. I will be saying a blessing for you and may the Lord protect you. ~H, North Carolina
  • Hey Todd! Just finished part 2 of this series. So well done; thoughtful, honest, compassionate and convicting. Really helping me understand how to better navigate this issue biblically with those immersed in it. Thanks for all your investment into this series to help others and exalt Christ. Blessings! ~ Cory
  • Hello Pastor Todd. I am from the Niagara Region. I just happened to come across this series.  I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!  Thank you for responding to the leading of the Holy Spirit to do a sermon series on this topic. It is SO NEEDED!  God is going to use this for HIS GLORY! I have already forwarded to many friends and family that are struggling in what they believe with this. Thanks for preaching God’s Word without apology! Just wanted to encourage you. I know God will use His Word being spoken through you to change and save lives. Praise be to God! Praying!  In Christ, ~J, Niagara Region
  • Could you pass onto Pastor Todd how thankful I am to God for the patience and delicacy he is using with this topic. Although the message is not simplistic, the Holy Spirit is allowing the sermons to speak in terms not only pertaining to homosexuality but also to all areas in our lives, in a straight forward way that is simple to understand. Thank Pastor Todd for me for proclaiming Christ, as Paul did, unapologetically. As Paul did: Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone “mature in Christ. For this I toil.” (Colossians 1:28-29a). My small group and myself truly appreciate his sermons and how God is working through him.
  • I just listened to your sermon, I cannot tell you how impactful it was. It’s a good thing I don’t have to speak because I have such a lump in my throat. I do want to give you feedback. Your mannerisms, your speech, appeal, your gestures and body language, tone, and pre-emoting of the next sermons were all perfect, no, rather they were very godly. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone more tenderly speak to a congregation let alone someone who may be in the audience who would be struggling with same-sex attraction or call themselves gay. You did a wonderful job. I will be praying for you. For your protection, for you to continue to let God guide you through this, to not be distracted by anything anyone might say or do because this is a real blessing. A blessing to the church, a blessing to our culture, a blessing to the people struggling, and I’m betting a blessing to God. Even outside of the scope of addressing homosexuality, this speaks to the church on so many other issues. Comes at a perfect time. I just want to say very, very well done. Thank you and God bless you,  ~V, Crystal Lake IL
  • This current series, When Cultures Clash, is a challenging one for sure but very needed in our current day. I was woken the other night with a deep burden to pray for you with regards to delivering this difficult message and I trust you have felt God’s favour and grace through the many prayers being lifted up for you at this time. Thank you for remaining true to the word of God and not allowing yourself to soften under pressure as SO many do. I remain blessed to be under your constant teaching every week. Thanks for being faithful to your obvious calling.
  • Pastor Todd, Dave Slater here from Parkview Church in Guelph. A couple families from Harvest Barrie have moved to Guelph over the past years and have been attending our church. They mentioned to me that you had done a number of messages on the same sex questions. I wanted to send a quick note to say thanks for these messages. As a Pastor I have been thinking of how to approach this in our church. Your dealings with these issues has been so thorough and articulate. You have done such a great job making the scriptures understandable on this difficult and divisive issue. Your spirit and tone are so humble, yet without compromise.
    Thanks for serving the Church. ~ Dave Slater, Lead Pastor, Parkview Church, Guelph
