Keith Giles

United We Stand - An Engaging and Interactive Gathering to Heal the Political Divide in the American Church.  Author and Bible Teacher Keith Giles has spent the last few years studying the decline of Christianity in America and has documented our current struggle to find unity in the Body of Christ in his most recent series of books. As a result of this research, Keith has developed a presentation that can help us understand how we got here, and more importantly, how the Church can emerge from this crisis as one Body, and one Bride, united in Christ.

Tent Theology

The vision of Tent Theology is to make quality theological education and equipping available to a wide audience, especially communities who are not usually able to provide this resource to their people.  Tent Theology seeks to serve the local church at rates the local church can afford.  Tent Theology is a traveling program. We come to where you are, when you want.  Tent Theology currently has partners in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

 

This organization is led by Stephen Backhouse.  He is an historian of Christian thought, an expert on the work of Søren Kierkegaard and an authority on the political theology of nations and nationalism. He is the author of many books and publications, including Kierkegaard’s Critique of Christian Nationalism (OUP: 2011), the award-winning popular biography Kierkegaard: A Single Life (Zondervan: 2016) and the Essential Companion to Christian History (Zondervan: 2019).

Vote Common Good

American culture, law, and politics have deep roots in religious narratives. To bring about deep and lasting change and to help our nation heal and mature as a democracy, we have to engage with those religious narratives.

We believe that:

  • New religious imagination will change America

  • This transformation will never happen without sustained effort

  • Vote Common Good and its allies can turn impossible into inevitabl

We will organize and connect four groups of influencers:

  • Politicians

  • Pastors

  • Press

  • People
