ENTER THE ELEPHANT ROOM
Building off of the success and impact of The Elephant Room, Round 2 raises the stakes even higher. This time a new mix of 7 pastors will take on some of today’s most pressing topics, including the non-negotiables of Christianity, the future of denominations, pastors with moral issues, the oversimplification of doctrine, the racial division of churches, and more. It’s a chance for real dialog from a group of leaders who aren’t afraid to mix it up.
