Drawing on exilic themes from the book of Daniel and exploring the real tensions of faithful living today, we invite you to come be renewed in your personal and professional commitment to faithful Kingdom life. Our focus will be exploring in depth Daniel’s public ministry as an exile in Babylon and letting that witness inform current tensions around issues like: maintaining allegiance to both God and our calling to the profession of arms; raising godly families amidst an increasingly secular culture; and balancing both a public and private witness to Christ. Come join us and be renewed both body and soul for your calling as a faithful disciple in challenging times!
