The Gospel & Culture Project is a Philadelphia-based, Christian non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire and equip believers to apply their faith to key questions in contemporary culture.
Besides Foray, the GCP’s initiatives include Word Meets World, an in-church training seminar that equips believers to be everyday theologians; gospelandculture.org, our online community which will go-live in October; and The School for Cultural Engagement, a graduate school of theology geared to meet the needs of laypeople and those entering professional ministry.
Dr. William Edgar, GCP director and Westminster Seminary Professor of Apologetics, built the GCP on the foundation of redemptive-historical theology and commitment to cultural engagement practiced by Harvie Conn, Abraham Kuyper and Francis Schaeffer, among others.
