Today’s program is going to feel a little different than other episodes.
The Regional Transformation Initiative is a gathering of Christian leaders in the greater Rochester region who have a common vision to use biblical principles to equip and activate people to bring transformation and reformation to their spheres of influence. Recently, the Regional Transformation Initiative invited Jason to sit down with five of its members and discuss topics pertinent to the Body of Christ, particularly at election season.
Those leaders are Pastor David Branch of Faith Chapel (Churchville, NY), Bob Grant a local businessman and entrepreneur, Pastor Phil Harlow of Bridge Builders Ministries (Rochester, NY), Pastor Al Hauck of Friend of God Ministries and Shepherd’s Heart Christian Fellowship (Rochester, NY) and Pastor Emelio Sebastian of Jubilee Christian Church (Brockport, NY).
Today, we’ll be sharing those discussions. Topics discussed, include:
1. Should the Christian be involved with the politics of this world?
2. What should the Church’s response be to the cultural chaos around us?
3. How should the Christian view political parties?
4. What is the Christian to do when the candidates on the ballot don’t reflect their values?
5. In a pivotal moment, where societal foundations seem to be crumbling, what can the Christian do?
Each of these discussions are also available via video on RTI's YouTube channel.
Let’s get started.
