Our time is a complicated one, and in the midst of complications, the Church has often struggled to find its identity as the world around it has changed rapidly and dramatically. What do these times require of the leaders of the Church? Join Dr. Greg Thompson as he leads a workshop designed both to map our cultural moment and chart a faithful way forward in our secular age, identifying six fundamental practices we must recover to be faithful ministers and leaders in Christ’s Church.
