What does it look like to align your ministry with God’s creative and redemptive work in your city? This is the question that we are discussing at the Living Scripture Missionally conference hosted by the Institute for Global Church Planting and Renewal at Calvin Theological Seminary.

Will you join us on November 18-19, 2015 as Christopher Wright, Ruth Padilla DeBorst, Christopher Brooks and several pastors and scholars from around the world as they discuss practical tools for contextualized ministry in light of the Biblical story of God’s ongoing mission in the world?
