For 16 years, New Wine has dedicated itself to building relational bridges through Jesus, and to living out the truth of the gospel by inviting people to the table to build relationships. We want everyone to go through--rather than stop short or go around--their convictions, to deal with disagreements. 

The Institute for Cultural Engagement: New Wine, New Wineskins is at the cutting edge of today’s holistic ministry movement. And because it’s connected to a Bible College and Seminary, it’s in a great position to challenge future leaders. I am highly impressed.
— Dr. John M. Perkins, President, John M. Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation & Development

If the Gospel of Jesus is a bridge, New Wine, New Wineskins is scouting the far shore. The importance of this ministry cannot be overstated. Attend one of the conferences and see for yourself.
— Donald Miller, author, Blue Like Jazz

New Wine is a stirring example of effective and inspirational re-imagining of how to bring evangelical Christianity forward in a changed American culture–how to pull the faith out of the ruts and trenches of the culture wars. If this is what publicly applied Christianity is going to look like more and more in the years to come, expect more non-evangelicals and non-religious people to appreciate what their Jesus-following fellow citizens have to offer, and to recognize opportunities for new alliances and partnerships for the common good.
