11:00 – Panel Discussion – Innovation in Ministry  

The idea that we were put here to fulfill a specific role ought to inspire us to no end! Yet in today’s caustic, corrosive culture, many find Christianity repulsive. Too many have emphasized what God and the church are against, and not for! How can we demonstrate we are different–that we are not hostile to our neighbors, people of color, or diversity? How can we employ the arts to engage with those who may not want to hear our preaching, yet who are hungry for images, songs, videos, poetry, and stories of hope?
