The Exchange is a platform to discuss how Christians can engage culture well, all the while pressing forward in our mission to show & share the love of Jesus in our world.
Although we cannot guarantee each article will be published on The Exchange, we invite your article proposals on topics related to the Evangelical faith, culture, and Christian leadership, discipleship, and missiology. Please send article ideas here. Typical turnaround response time is one week.
