So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.
– Ephesians 2:19

What is it?

Politics in the Life of the Church is an afternoon of workshops on rethinking faith and politics with author Jonathan Leeman.

Who is it for?

This event is for DCC members, participants, and other churches desiring to engage politically in ways that reflect our common citizenship in heaven.

What topics will be covered?

Sessions will cover how to engage with politics and the government and how to love church members when we disagree politically.

Want to better understand the relationship between faith and politics? Are you desiring to engage politically in ways that reflect our common citizenship in heaven? Are you thinking about how to approach political conversations within the church?

We invite you to join us for an afternoon of careful thought, practical advice and encouragement as we consider the unchanging political task of Jesus’ church: to become the salt and light he calls us to be, and offer the hope of his kingdom to the nations.
