Fleming Rutledge and The Cross-Shaped Mission 


June 5th, 2020 @ 10:00am-12:30pm 

Fleming Rutledge in Dialogue with Scot McKnight


The Apostle Paul declares, “for the message of the cross is foolishness.” What does this foolish cross have to say to our culture today? In a Western context defined by power, competency, and influence, how does the crucifixion shape our life together? How does a cross-shaped mission position the church in the world?

Join renowned pastor and theologian Fleming Rutledge as she casts a vision for a church engaged with the world.

Space is limited for this event.
