LTC 2021: Hope (re)Imagined

Community Building Track

What kind of community has God called AACF to be? Are we called to fortify ourselves from others and shut out the world? Are we called to dominate the world and condemn its sins? Or are we called to accommodate and blend in with the world? As a Christian community, we have a greater calling. We are called to love as God loved. We have been given a ministry of reconciliation, to reconcile the world to God. In this track we will examine a biblical framework for community. We will build upon that foundation to develop skills to welcome and reach the campus, our mission field.
