"Take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ" –2 Corinthians 10:5

If you’re called to write, then write as an act of obedience, write as an act of worship. We take our thoughts captive with a keyboard and make them obedient to Christ one word, one sentence, one paragraph at a time. 

Write as an act of worship!

Come explore these themes of writing as an act of obedience and worship with the main keynote speaker and New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson.
