Church Leaders


Groundbreaking research presented in the best-selling book, unChristian, reveals that 16-29 year-olds perceive Christians to be anti-homosexual, judgmental, hypocritical, too political, sheltered, and proselytizing. This four-part group study moves the conversation forward by providing practical insights on how Christians can change the negative perceptions in their communities.
