Greg Boyd is a pastor, author & theologian whose primary vision is to help the Church become the Kingdom of outrageous loving servants God called it to be, and to help non-believers discover the transforming power of Jesus Christ.

Greg joins leaders from across Be In Christ Church of Canada to discuss how we might recover an awareness of the spiritual power that has been given to us, live out the values of the kingdom of God and resist evil in a way that makes sense for today.

Following Jesus in a secular age requires spiritual vigilance as opposing forces work to distract us, frustrate us, lull us to sleep and diffuse our faith. It’s easy to start feeling at home in the world’s systems of money, power, sex, busyness, consumption, security, and significance.

As followers of Jesus we have the advantage if we will learn to recognize, resist, and overcome evil in the power of the Spirit of God.
