How can Christians be agents of cultural renewal? How can we move from being merely consumers or critics of culture to creators of it? This interactive workshop will help Christian leaders rethink our postures towards the world around us—not just the culture of our society, but the culture of our own neighborhoods and churches—and learn to live transformational lives in that world.
What role will you play in the flourishing of your local culture?
