The Apostolic Approach to fulfilling the Great Commission in the Marketplace (Richmond)

Presenter: Joseph Perry
May 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Zoom (online), United States

How can the church make a difference in the city? How can the church help create flourishing society and revolutionize the way people view their faith and work? In this Made to Flourish Seminar we will discuss effective ways to reach our communities, our cities, and our nation for Christ.

The church has sought to fulfill the Great Commission through the Evangelistic Approach, but this alone cannot accomplish it. The apostolic approach enlists every believer, sanctifies every occupation, and touches every sphere of culture, empowering the church to not just go “to” all the world, but “into” all the world.
