May 5, Lunch: Partner Church leadership event
Friday, May 5 | Noon-2 p.m. | Park Church
As pastors, many of us feel the tensions of our cultural moment:
- evangelical Christianity is facing a significant public reputation challenge
- broader secular culture is deeply divided politically, racially, socioeconomically, and ideologically
Christians need a renewed theological vision for our public presence in this current cultural tension. And their church leaders need to better equip them to that end.
Join us Friday, May 5th at Noon for a church staff professional development luncheon to support that vision. This two-hour learning event will include lunch, a keynote presentation from Steven Garber (see bio below, 5-min video HERE), and open discussion on practical implications. Topics will include:
- Connecting our peoples’ vocation/calling to God’s mission in the world
- Helping our people see the broken world honestly, but still love the world tangibly
- Equipping our church staffs to pastorally engage their people in these critical matters
