The Church: What's the Point?

September 24--27, 2008

Many today who believe that the local church is irrelevant, obsolete, and meaningless also appear to be clearly interested in spiritual issues. These seemingly contrasting positions raise the following questions: 

  • Does the local church in the USA meaningfully reflect what Jesus had in mind when He established the church?
  • What is it that this generation of young Christians sees, or does not see, that has led many of them to abandon the local expression of Christ's church?

The Bryan Center for Critical Thought and Practice will address these and similar issues when it considers the question, "The Church: What's the Point?"
