How did LSTC shape you as a future leader of the public church?

For me, “Public Church is not an alternate ecclesiology to swap with the prevalent ecclesiologies; rather, it enables church leaders, clerics, and pews to search together for their existence and relevance theologically and ministerially by being and becoming a church/congregation ‘of’ all – church ‘for’ all – church ‘by’ all and church ‘with’ all.”

(I guess still this statement is there in LSTC’s website)
