By Leigh Harper, October 5, 2017

The 2017 Culture Shapers are young professionals to watch. Almost anyone can throw an event together, but innovation is the true differentiating factor between a mediocre player in the faith-based events industry and a great one. They’re choosing innovation each day, setting themselves apart in the industry as they strive for more.

These game changers are not simply following a template. They are breaking molds, identifying creative solutions and purposefully not choosing the easy road. They are introducing new models, concepts and goals, in turn changing the way we work and think about events. Many of them are using their platforms to champion people and causes they’re passionate about along the way, stewarding their vocations and lives well.
