Touchstone is a loosely linked community of friends whose vocations place them within leadership in the business, political, arts and spiritual marketplaces. We know that God is present in all of life and desires to have us experience his love. In response to being loved we desire to love God with heart, soul, mind and strength. Jesus’ invitation to “love our neighbour as ourselves” helps leaders to engage in friendship and employ power, finances and reputation constructively and with integrity.
Offering, encouraging and teaching friendship in Christ among leaders in business, political, arts and spiritual marketplaces.
