Clovis pastor writes book on sexual integrity

The Fresno BeeSeptember 27, 2013 

Book by Rev. Sam Beckworth, pastor of Faith Summit Church in Clovis.


A Clovis pastor is the author of a new book about sexual integrity for young adults.

Sam Beckworth, pastor of Faith Summit Church, has written "Yes to Sex (Just Not Yet!)", which was released in late June.

Beckworth said the process of writing the book took about two years.

He hopes readers are able to understand biblical truths about sexual integrity that enrich and deepen their lives and relationships, as well as protect them from the consequences of poor choices.

"They say sex sells, but God wrote the message on sex," Beckworth says. "My heart is to give young adults the opportunity to reach for God's best.

"The book is about sexual integrity, but God wants to speak value to young people. If young people are valued and feel they are of value, that will affect their conduct."

Beckworth founded Faith Summit Church in 2005. The congregation has grown to 170 people.

Services are at 11 a.m. Sundays at 908 E. Gettysburg Ave.

The book costs $14.99 and is available at Details: (559) 298-9840.
