Servant Leaders as Agents of Social Change

Author, speaker, and pastor Brian McLaren has been active in networking and mentoring church planters and pastors since the mid 1980s. During this one-day seminar, McLaren will help us consider the gospel itself as a story that puts our feet transformatively in the world.
