Do you have mixed feelings, consternation, or ambivalence about evangelicalism? Perhaps you’ve spent significant time in evangelical spaces and are troubled by its complicity in racial injustice, gender inequity, and Christian nationalism. Yet, you’ve also experienced positives, like belonging in a faith community and growing spiritually by taking Jesus and scripture seriously.
For those that want evangelicalism to be less toxic and wonder how to make sense of the dissonance between its best and worst features, this webinar will explore that, and more. Gain a framework and practical tools for how to grapple/struggle with evangelicalism’s mix of good/bad/ugly in a realistic and redemptive way. Pastors and ministry leaders who long for a healthier evangelicalism will learn how to equip others under their care who are dealing with similar ambivalence and questions.
In this webinar, Dan Stringer, the author of Struggling with Evangelicalism: Why I Want to Leave and What it Takes to Stay will share about his own personal journey and offer ways that individuals can wrestle with evangelicalism in realistic and healthy ways.
