Live Webinar: “The Pastor’s Dilemma in an Election Year” with Ron Sider
Thursday, September 17 at noon EST
If you are struggling with how to help your congregation think biblically this election year, then this webinar is for you. Maybe your congregation is sharply divided over politics, and you fear that anything you say will offend someone–or even drive them away! You understandably want all of your people to let Christ be Lord of their politics, but you struggle to find a way to do that wisely.
Join Ron Sider and our friends at First Baptist Church of Philadelphia for an engaging conversation about how to lead your congregation amidst deep political differences in this election year. They’ll explore practical suggestions, and you’ll have a chance to ask Dr. Sider any questions you have.

Ron Sider is known worldwide for providing leadership to the movement of evangelicals who recognize not just the spiritual, but also the social and political implications of a high view of Scripture.
His book Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger was lauded by Christianity Today as being among the top 100 books in religion in the 20th century and the seventh most influential book in the evangelical world in the last 50 years.
In addition to Rich Christians, Dr. Sider has written more than 30 published books, including Evangelism, Salvation and Social Justice; Christ and Violence; Cry Justice: The Bible on Hunger and Poverty; Completely Pro-Life; Good News and Good Works: A Theology for the Whole Gospel; Living Like Jesus; Just Generosity: A New Vision for Overcoming Poverty in America; The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience: Why Are Christians Living Just Like the Rest of the World?; The Scandal of Evangelical Politics: Why are Christians Missing the Chance to Really Change the World?; I Am not a Social Activist: Making Jesus the Agenda, and Fixing the Moral Deficit: A Balanced Way to Balance the Budget. He also edited The Early Church on Killing: A Comprehensive Sourcebook on War, Abortion, and Capital Punishment.
In the 1970s, Sider played a key role in the drafting of the historic Chicago Declaration, which helped set the direction for evangelicals concerned about the Bible’s social implications. He is the founder and President of Christians for Social Action (CSA), which for more than four decades has provided an organizational outlet for Christians committed to holistic ministry.
An ordained minister in the Mennonite and Brethren in Christ Churches, Sider has lectured at numerous educational institutions, including Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Oxford.
