The challenges facing the contemporary church are both daunting and exciting. How can we express the love of God in an increasingly secular age? How do we wage peace in a time of social polarization and global conflict? Are there new ways of doing church that will awaken others to the relevance of our faith?

The Courage and Faith program offers faith-expanding experiences from important spiritual voices to stimulate generative conversations about what it means to follow Jesus in the postmodern world.
