Being a Faithful Pastor in the Modern World (Denver)
May 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm MDT
Presenter: Steven Garber$10.00
As pastors, many of us feel the tensions of our cultural moment:
- Evangelical Christianity faces a significant public reputation challenge
- Political, racial, socioeconomic, and ideological divides split broader culture
Christians need a renewed theological imagination for public presence amidst this tension. And their church leaders can better equip them to that end.
Join us May 5th for a church staff professional development event to support this vision. We’ll include lunch, a keynote from Steven Garber, and discussion on pastoral implications. Topics will include:
- Connecting our peoples’ vocation to God’s mission
- Helping them see the broken world honestly, but still love it tangibly
- Equipping our church staffs to engage their people in these critical matters
