Q&A reception to follow
 
The landscape of the church has shifted dramatically in recent decades. As the church continues to adapt, powerful rhetoric has emerged that separates the ideas of mission and institution, claiming that 'mission is important and the institution is not.’ Unfortunately, this separation can weaken institutions, causing them to lose the capacity to practice the values they embrace. This lecture will explore the ways that strong institutions with deep capacity are essential to fulfilling God’s mission in the world and sustaining the hard work this will require.
