Event Details

Engaging Culture – Complete the Journey

When we began Engaging Culture, it was designed to give people in the GTA and surrounding areas a type of ‘home-base’ experience. However, requests are growing from across the country to provide similar teaching experiences. In order to accomplish this we need to “revamp” the program to facilitate taking it “on the road” (as well as to the GTA).

Therefor, this version of Engaging Culture will be ending in November, 2014. In order to facilitate this, we will not be taking new participants in the program, but rather making it possible for those who have already begun the program to complete it. Below is a chart of the dates and tracks of upcoming Engaging Culture Seminars. Register now to complete the program.

Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with compassion, conviction and clarity is what Engaging Culture is all about.

  • How do we talk to our friends, neighbours or colleagues with confidence?
  • How do we answer the difficult questions that Christians are often asked — everything from "why trust the Bible?" to "how can God allow evil?"
  • How can we understand deeply in order to communicate clearly?

You've begun the journey. Now it's time to complete it.

RZIM Canada

RZIM Canada is the Canadian office of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and is based in the heart of Toronto. It exists to challenge the thinking skeptic, engage with those who have objections or questions about the Christian faith and to credibly present the gospel to those who influence our culture. In the midst of an increasingly secular society, RZIM Canada also aims to help Christians understand both the gospel and their culture, so they can share their faith with confidence in an intelligent and articulate way.
