This year, Mission Alive hosted three of the classes at the Pepperdine Lectureships. For the next three weeks, starting today, we will be sharing with you recordings from all three classes, in case you missed them this year or you wanted to hear them again.
The first class Mission Alive hosted was Keep Church Weird: Church as Alternative Community. As an outpost of God’s reign, the church is a counter-culture to the prevailing culture around it, though perhaps in unexpected ways that is good news to those outside the church. This recording discusses how the church embodies an alternative way of life in its North American neighborhood.
The class was taught by Collin Packer, the preaching minister at Greenville Oaks Church of Christ in Allen, TX and Charles Kiser, the director of training at Mission Alive and a church planter in Dallas, TX.
