How do we shape a more hopeful future by leading differently? This was the question explored by over 200 faithful leaders at the 2016 FTE Christian Leadership Forum.

This publication includes insights and reflections from the gathering, including Dan Wolpert's piece "Making Space for Something New" on page 6.
