Pastors’ meetings in Oregon to look at challenges of today’s culture


A national Christian public policy ministry will hold four and possibly five meetings in Oregon this month to update pastors and Christian leaders on the challenges faced in today’s culture.

Sponsored by the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council, the free-admission Culture Impact sessions will be led by Randy Wilson, national field director for the council, and Pastor Denny Stahl of Calvary Chapel Grants Pass, Oregon representative for the council.

In addition, a national official for the council will speak at two other related events in southern Oregon and northern California.  They will feature Lt. Gen. Wi-liam “Jerry” Boykin (U.S. Army, Ret.), who is executive vice president for the council.

At his sessions, Wilson will encourage Christians to form community-wide teams to respond effectively to various moral and social issues from a Biblical perspective. Those sessions are:

•6 p.m. Sunday, March 4, and also 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, at Calvary Chapel Grants Pass, 269 W. Harbeck Road in Grants Pass.
