Urban Renewal and Discipleship: A Workshop for Pastors
July 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDTFree
This interactive workshop for pastors, led by Pastor Chris Brooks from Evangel Ministries in Detroit, examines the Biblical basis for the call to serve the city and advocate for economic renewal, and it offers a picture of Christ-centered discipleship within the urban church context. Find out why communities need Christian economic development, why poverty does not have to be permanent, and why flourishing requires collaboration. Consider the theology behind wealth creation, management, and distribution, and leave with practical ideas for taking the next step in your church.
Pastor Brooks is the Senior Pastor of Evangel Ministries, a thriving 1600 member church in the heart of Detroit. In 2009, Christopher published his first book, Kingdom Dreaming and finished his second book, Urban Apologetics in 2014. He is also the daily host of Equipped for Life, airing daily on the Salem Network, 1500 AM and a national live show Equipped with Chris Brooks, airing daily on Moody Radio. He was appointed the Campus Dean of Moody Theological Seminary’s Michigan Campus in September 2013.
