Hi. Welcome to my blog.
My name is Luke Hyder. I'm in my third year in the MDiv program at Fuller Seminary, concentrating in Worship, Theology and the Arts. I am from a lot of places if you go back far enough, but my family has been in Fresno CA for about the last 16 years. I came to Pasadena from Spkane WA where I did my undergrad at Whitworth College, worked as a worship leader at First Presbyterian Church, and met and married my wife, Marla. I am the son and son-in-law of two Presbyterian Pastors and am training to be one myself.
In this class and on this blog I hope to do some meaningful processing of the subject of Cultural Tranformation, especially as it pertains to Contemporary Culture, and specifically how it can be applied to a local church's vision and mission in engaging its immediate community and cultural context(s).
