If You’re a Pastor, You MUST Be Political

How to Be Prophetic and Pastoral While Remaining Employed

(formerly known as “Church Camp”)

Pre-Festival Offering
Thursday July 9, 2020

9 am – 5 pm

cost: $59.00


  • How can we better understand our current political moment in relation to faith and politics?
  • How do we more effectively lead in red, blue, and purple congregations?
  • What does the Good News of Jesus Christ have to say to the Fox News of Rupert Murdoch?
  • What can pastors do between now and November to advocate for justice, peace, and love – without getting fired?
  • How can our sermons, songs, prayers, and symbolism contribute to a better future?

We’ll explore questions like these with pastors, lay leaders, ex-church folk, parents, and others who care about churches and their role in our crazy context.
