The world is in crisis. It's time to get innovative!

These are challenging times: a global pandemic, racial tensions, violence, and economic collapse.

In the midst of this upheaval, God's people are called to the same mission we've had for 2000 years: to live out the story of His new creation.

To carry out this mission today, we need to approach challenges in creative new ways. We need to get innovative!

By the end of this four-week online training, you'll learn how to creatively design new or improved solutions to challenges in your community.
