We are living at a time in history in which the predominant stereotype of Christians in the United States is that we are an arrogant and angry, judgmental and condemning people. This stereotype will most effectively be torn down one heart, one life at a time as people encounter Christians who, like Jesus, are a safe place. In addition, many Christians are struggling to be of any real threat to the dominion of darkness. This class will help participants be equipped, transformed, and empowered to think, speak, and act more like Jesus so that they can more effectively impact their world with God’s love and God’s power.
