cg2017 Twin Cities

October 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm CDT

Event Navigation

The Common Good conference was created as a way to engage in a conversation about the common good — a subject that is not often addressed directly, especially among Christians. What is the common good? Why is the common good so central to the mission of the church? And what are some practical ways we can pursue the common good, both as individuals and churches?

The Twin Cities will join 19 other sites for this unique conference experience featuring a combination of simulcast presentations from national thought leaders (like Andy Crouch and Tom Nelson) as well as live presentations from local practitioners in the Twin Cities.

Join us as we explore the vital role of the church in pursuing and promoting the common good in our workplaces, cities, and neighborhoods.  Click here to register!
