Eventbrite - Engage - Evangelism at the Intersection of Faith & Culture



Engage: Evangelism at the Intersection of Faith & Culture" is a one-day conference for ministry leaders to feel encouraged, equipped, and empowered as pastors and individuals while engaged in all areas of life and ministry.

Today, faith and culture are at a crossroads, fundamentally disagreeing with each other. The current shift in American culture requires us to consider what it means to live and evangelize in a broken world. If we, as Christians, take the necessary steps and engage those within the intersection provided to us, we can influence the culture around us.
Now more than ever, as leaders in ministry, we need to engage our culture and discuss how we can empower one another through the lens of the Gospel, our faith being that which drives us and displays the solutions to the world.

Our hope is that this conference will challenge and encourage you in your walk with Christ as we focus on Evangelism at the Intersection of Faith & Culture.
