The Mitchell Center for Leadership & Ministry will host a dinner in New York City with Gabe Lyons and FHU staff member Brad Montague Saturday, May 21, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at the Kimmel Center in New York City. The intent is to create discussion between church leaders about how Christians can be more involved in creating and changing culture.
The evening will begin with Montague, founder of the nonprofit organization "Love in Stereo," speaking on the difficulties of change. He hopes to encourage attendees by humorously and honestly revealing some of his failed endeavors that have helped him see that, although actively engaging culture can be messy, it is a necessary effort.
Featured speaker for the evening is Gabe Lyons, author of “The Next Christians: The Good News About the End of Christian America,” co-author of “unChristian,” and founder of "Q." Optional to the evening is a viewing of the documentary “7 Days Across America: What is Right with the American Teenager.” Lyons has researched pop culture’s perception of Christians.
Cost for the evening is $65 and includes dinner. Registration can be made by calling the Mitchell Center at 501-279-4660.
