Title: A Salt & Light Community
Jesus tells his disciples they are “the salt of the earth” and “the light of the world” (Matthew 5:13-16). The church is called to bear witness to the Kingdom of God through their words, love for one another, and their love of neighbor. Join us for a conversation on being salt and light in our city.
Speaker & Bio: Chris Gonzalez
Chris is lead pastor for a church called Missio Dei Communities in Tempe. Missio Dei is a church committed to finding their place in the biblical story and living faithfully in it. One thing that is unique about Missio Dei (other then the name) is that the organizing framework for the church is not a Sunday gathering, but Missional Communities that function in many ways like house churches. Chris moved to Tempe from Memphis, TN in 1997 to attend ASU. He is married to Leslie and they have three biological children and a foster son.
