... see people's needs in a new way.
... understand their calling.
... learn how their faith can shape culture.

The Christian Vision Project, an initiative of Christianity Today International, is supported by a generous grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts. The Project asks big questions about culture, mission, and the gospel, and highlights answers from Christian leaders who model faithfulness, creativity, and commitment at a crucial moment in the history of the church.
