In Perspective – How Did We Get to this Point? The Historical Roots of the Current State of Evangelicalism
In this panel, we address how we can accurately assess our Evangelicalism roots and what needs to change to redefine a movement in crisis.
Our history shapes us. Yet, many of us do not know that history. As a result, we cannot accurately assess where we are and what we need to change in order to redefine a movement in crisis.
We hope you can join us for Denver Seminary’s first In Perspective panel event of the fall. If you are local, we invite you to come to campus for a watch party after which we will be joined by our panelists for an in-person audience Q&A.
Panelists include Dr. Kathleen Mulhern, Brandon Washington, Dr. Scott Wenig, Moderated by Denver Seminary President Dr. Mark Young
