Social Restoration

Research tells us, and we see it played out every day, that the current culture is bearing down on the Church with such pressure that it’s sometimes difficult to see how they’re different. Taught by Chip’s son, Pastor Ryan Ingram, Social Restoration looks at how it’s possible for the Church of Jesus Christ to be IN the world, but not OF the world. Ryan provides practical, biblical solutions to how we can counter the cultural pressure and bring light, not heat, to a world that’s, literally, falling apart.
