Event Navigation

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

Steven Garber is the principal of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation & Culture, which is focused on reframing the way people understand life, especially the meaning of vocation and the common good.

A consultant to foundations, corporations and educational institutions, he is a teacher of many people in many places. The author of The Fabric of Faithfulness: Weaving Together Belief and Behavior, and Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good, he is also a contributor to the books, Faith Goes to Work: Reflections from the Marketplace, and Get Up Off Your Knees: Preaching the U2 Catalogue. He lives with his wife Meg in Virginia.
