Evangelical Christianity has done enormous damage to the brand of Christianity. When we hear the word “Christian” in the media, even those of us shaped in that tradition cringe knowing that the kind of Christianity represented in our mainstream culture is inconsistent with the values we learned from our scriptures and understand through the life of Jesus.
At the same time, Mainline Church (Methodists, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, UCC, DoC, etc) are so BORING! They may have a better theology but their services seem so out of touch with the rest of the world.
It’s time for a conversation about how we reimagine faith and theological formation, how we teach faith to our children and what systems we need in place to have a healthy religious ecosystem that makes the world more just and generous.
This online summit is the fourth gathering of those interested in exploring new ways to engage theological formation. Some of us come from professional fields and seminaries. Others of us are business leaders who care that we are creating good humans. Others of us are mothers and fathers who care about their kids having access to life-giving religion.
In this summit, we will hear from leaders in the business community who have learned a thing or two about how people experience formation instead of memorization and how we can expand access to good theological resources.
