Christians Are Called To Redeem Entire Cultures, Not Just Individuals
Many Christians today feel overwhelmed trying to live faithfully in a culture that seems increasingly hostile to their beliefs. As our communities feel the pressure to divide around race, politics, economics, sexuality and an ever-growing list of contentious issues, believers find it harder than ever to hold on to their convictions while treating their friends, neighbors, coworkers, and even family members who disagree with respect and compassion.
During our conversation Gabe will share key insights about how to lead with love instead of fear. How to hold to conviction and demonstrate courage while respecting those with whom we disagree. It’s his belief (and the research bears this out) that the majority of Americans are looking for leadership on how to get along, despite differences. This is an incredible opportunity for the church, but will we be prepared to take the lead?

Additionally, he is author of The Next Christians: Seven Ways You Can Live the Gospel and Restore the World and co-author of UnChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity and Why It Matters, a bestselling book based on original research that revealed the pervasiveness of pop culture’s negative perceptions of Christians.
