Hope for the City – 2014

Hope for the City

2014 Annual Lenten Leadership Series

It’s been said that to go from good to great,
take what you do well and do it with excellence!

Hope for the City 2014 was a shining example of this axiom. Our 2014 Hope for the City series devoted its energies to just two days in order to host, with excellence, two nationally-renowned figures, while focusing on the Biblical and environmental stewardship theme: There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God
(Psalm 46:4).
