Adult Elective Class

“Power and Polity: Forming a Goodness Culture in an Age of Celebrity and Success”

Sunday, Jan. 8 & 15 | 9:40-10:40 AM

Led by Dr. Bobby Hulme-Lippert

The class will explore the challenging dynamics that have created unhealthy cultures within the church. Class participants also will consider how those dynamics affect the leadership and congregation alike, and how the church can cultivate a sustainably healthy, trusting and Jesus-centered culture.

This class will pull from:

  • The book, A Church Called Tov: Forming a Goodness Culture That Resists Abuses of Power and Promotes Healing (Barringer & McKnight, 2020)
  • The book, Celebrities for Jesus: How Personas, Platforms, and Profits Are Hurting the Church (Beaty, 2022)
  • The podcast “The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill” (Christianity Today)
