Episode 166: David Dockery, What It Means to be Evangelical

On January 07, 2019

In the fall of 2018, a number of pastors and leaders from across the EFCA gathered at the national office for the annual Missional Summit. Our theme for the Summit was “What it Means to be Evangelical”. Considering societal turmoil, the word "evangelical" has developed various meanings, some which are not favorable.

On this episode of the podcast, we share the opening message from the Summit by David Dockery, in which he chronicles the history of evangelicalism and where he sees evangelicalism today. In his message, David also provides a look forward with a focus on some ways we in the EFCA can respond in order to be a beacon of hope and light in an increasingly challenging world.

Since 2014, David has served as President of Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois — the educational arm of the EFCA.
