Centered on Jesus online workshop hosted by Center for Community Transformation

“Centered on Jesus” is an online workshop that will examine ways a congregation can keep its firm convictions without drawing lines that promote polarization and judgmental attitudes, as well as the biblical principles, ministry and relational skills a church needs to grow in this ability.

The workshop will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, February 26, 2022. It is hosted by the Center for Community Transformation at Fresno Pacific University.

Mark Baker, Ph.D., professor of mission and theology at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, will introduce the “centered set church,” and Grace Spencer, M.Div., will share her experience from three churches. Registrants will be able to enter a raffle to receive Baker’s new book, Centered-Set Church: Discipleship and Community Without Judgementalism (IVP), and the first 50 to register and attend will receive a $10 lunch voucher.
