What if every Christ-follower prioritized engaging in spiritual conversations with people throughout our city in a unified way? What if these spiritual conversations were taking place during a heightened time of spiritual attention, either coordinated by church leaders or prompted by some other event or circumstance?
During the past six years, we launched two city-wide campaigns called Explore God and Love Where You Live. With each campaign, more than 375 churches customized their goals and trained their congregations with CTGA support. Then we covered the city with advertising during a 6-8 week period designed to stoke curiosity and create opportunities for churches to engage in spiritual conversations.
We design these campaigns about every three years, and our next one is in the planning stages for 2020. Watch for announcements about how to get involved coming soon!
Pastors & Atheists | An Open Discussion
In the spring of 2013, several pastors from Austin and several notable Atheist Leaders sat down to ask – and answer – some tough questions, and came away with a better understanding where each other comes from. This was not an attempt to pretend that we agree on everything – nor was it an attempt to “win over” the other in one night. That’s what made this evening so special: both sides were seeking to clarify positions so that there can be an open line for conversation in the future. Engaging the people of God to have conversations about the person of God in a unified effort.
