Event Description

The role of the contemporary church goes beyond just evangelism and teaching. Those things matter deeply, but so does the connection between the church and the broader community. Our churches should be leading the way to helping others flourish.

This online session looks at one pastor's vision for what the church can do to engage with the world. Find out how work and vocation can be gateways for relationship with those outside our congregations.

We'll consider how the church can:

  • Build bridges with the community
  • Encourage flourishing in schools
  • Engage with and affirm business
  • Develop cross-sector collaborations

Plus, see how God affirms ALL kinds of work as valuable. No matter what job we do, our contribution has kingdom significance.
