If you're interested in bringing us in for a workshop but you aren't sure where to start, we recommend considering one of these two events:
How to Behave in Public
This interactive workshop is our flagship class and the best way to start a gracious, Spirit-filled, Christ-centered conversation about politics and civic life in your church or ministry community. Through teaching, discussion, and a range of prayer and conversation exercises, we'll cover a basic understanding of the structure of the US government, what the Bible's commands for rulers and those in authority mean for us as citizens, the attitudes and postures Christians should all demonstrate in the public square, why Christians of the same faith might disagree about politics, and the why and how of building deep fellowship with people who disagree with you.
Ministering in a Polarized Nation
What do I say when a congregant asks me who to vote for? What do I do when they tell me and I disagree?
This seminar provides pastors and ministry teams with an in-depth overview of how to navigate Christian leadership in our modern political climate. Topics include a survey of major trends in political theology, the relationship between missiology and political polarization, and how to handle practical challenges you are likely to face as you support your brothers and sisters. By the end of this seminar, you will have a game plan for how to help your congregants talk with one another about the public square—and it will be one you are actually excited about!
Appropriate for new and experienced pastors, as well as seminarians, church staff and key lay leaders. Contact us for more details.
