Influence. Regardless of our industry, our hierarchical position in an organization, or our family role, we all have influence. But, do we consider it a resource to steward?

According to esteemed author and former editor and producer at Christianity Today, Andy Crouch, "Two common temptations lure us away from abundant living—withdrawing into safety or grasping for power."

Do you grasp for power? Do you withdraw? Can you leverage your influence for the good of all?

"True flourishing travels down an unexpected path: being both strong and weak."

Come explore your influence and understand how you can be both Strong and Weak. Andy Crouch will provide the tools to help you marry both your authority and your vulnerability in ways that will create opportunities for those around you to flourish.

His two most recent books—2017's The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place and 2016's Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing—build on the compelling vision of faith, culture, and the image of God laid out in his previous books Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power and Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling.

For more than ten years he was an editor and producer at Christianity Today, including serving as executive editor from 2012 to 2016. He served the John Templeton Foundation in 2017 as senior strategist for communication.

From 1998 to 2003, Andy was the editor-in-chief of re:generation quarterly, a magazine for an emerging generation of culturally creative Christians. For ten years he was a campus minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Harvard University.
