ACT3 Network Special Events

With the recent election of Pope Francis there is renewed hope among many evangelicals for an unprecedented new day for Christian unity in evangelism and mission. Many ask, “How can this be when we do not preach the same gospel?” How do we overcome the “anathemas” of the past and the widespread evangelical belief that the Catholic Church preaches “a false gospel?” Is there a better way forward and if so how?

Because ACT3 Network shares the vision that we call missional-ecumenism we offer these two special events to the public on Tuesday, April 30, 2013.
