In many New England communities, churches are struggling to overcome a reputation for being judgmental, disconnected, self-consumed, irrelevant and powerless.  Have we interpreted our community’s mistrust to mean that they are closed to the gospel? New initiatives are showing that when we find ways to lean into the issues that the community cares about and demonstrate Jesus’ love in ways that effect real change, negative reputations give way to restored trust and open conversations.

Bob Atherton, Director of THRIVE New England, will discuss how justice and mercy ministries are a crucial ingredient to the flow of evangelism in our communities. He will share principles you can apply to connect the unique strengths of your church with the unique needs of your community.
