"Life and Faith in the Digital Age:
Grasping Opportunities, Discerning Risks"
The Adult Discipleship Ministry Team sponsors this forum each year to help equip God's people for the work of
ministry in an ever-changing cultural landscape.
There are many way in our day and age where the cultural values of society collide with the deep convictions of the Christian faith. Instead of seeing this as a threat to the Christian mission, we believe this to be an opportunity for greater engagement in the mission. Our call, as followers of Christ, is to be separate from culture but not isolated from it. Our hope is that believers in the 21st century will be radically different and radically identifiable as they seek to impact the world around them with the good news of the Gospel.
This year we explore the opportunities and the risks that we face with digital technology.
Our first guest speaker, Ra McLaughlin, will help us to see some of the wonderful ways we can leverage technology to advance the Kingdom of God. Ra will discuss the exciting kingdom work being done by Third Millennium Ministries.
Our second guest speaker, Walt Mueller, will help us to understand how technology is changing us and our children. Walt will introduce us to the valuable ministry of The Center for Parent/youth Understanding.
