Equipping Christians to be Gospel-Centered Citizens in Post-Christian America
Hi, I’m Josh Hershberger, an attorney, minister and speaker. I started BCI to challenge and equip church leaders and other committed Christians to confidently live out the Gospel in public life. The goal? To transform our communities, states and nation through the power of the Gospel.
Most church leaders and other committed Christians I meet desire to build relationships with their elected officials and impact the life of their city, state and nation with the Gospel. But, cultural pressure, partisan politics and culture warring have left many Christians and especially church leaders conflicted about their role in public life.
They ask these questions: “Should we engage at all?,” “Haven’t we lost the culture war?” and “How can we engage elected officials and public life without jeopardizing the Gospel?”
I launched Bold Church Initiative to answer these questions and to equip church leaders and other committed Christians to faithfully and effectively engage public life in our post-Christian culture (Matt. 28:16-20; Matt. 5:16).
