A gifted and dynamic speaker with a passion for social justice, Christopher Sunami brings a message of personal responsibility and empowerment based directly on the teachings of the Gospels. Sunami is the author of the socially conscious devotional “Hero For Christ”, a finalist for the Independent Book Award for Best Religious Nonfiction in 2009. As a former longtime staff member of the community-transforming United Methodist Church For All People in Columbus, Ohio, he has a wealth of practical experience in putting faith into action.
Heaven and Hell (on Earth)
Can you experience Heaven or Hell –without dying? When we act out of cruelty, greed, selfishness or hate, we make life a living hell for ourselves and everyone around us. But living out the message of Jesus creates a real “Heaven on Earth”.
If Jesus Came Back Today
If Jesus came back today, what would he want to find you doing? The answer might surprise you. Learn the true Gospel answer to that question, and find out how Jesus walks among us, today and every other day.
Heroes For Christ
Learn about some of the greatest Christian heroes of all time, and the ways they used the Gospels as a guide to changing the world.
Do you feel helpless? Powerless? Worthless? Learn how to have an impact on your community by taking personal responsibility for your own life and neighborhood.
“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Servant” and “Leader” are two ideas that the world doesn’t often put together. But Jesus said the greatest of all is not the person who rules everyone but the person who serves everyone. This workshop provides practical training for people at all levels of responsibility in how servant leadership can have a transformative effect on your community.
Young Servant Leaders
This workshop includes interactive segments geared especially for teens, as well as practical instruction in how a young person can make an impact at school, at church, or at home in the neighborhood through servant leadership.
