Whether you are a new Christian, a student leader, or not sure what you believe, you will come away from this session with concepts, metaphors, and an overview of basic Christian theology to help you apply, share, or simply understand the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Join us for a conversation with Sho Baraka and Propaganda about various topics, including compassion, unity, ethics, race, faith, and the church. Our hope is that by bringing these conversations to the forefront, we can move past Twitter rants and Facebook debates to a place where people are no longer disillusioned, but inspired and equipped to step back into their communities with fresh eyes, compassion in their hearts, good news on their lips—ready to live as lights in a dark world.
From Snapchat and Instagram, to Uber and AirBnb, Reach Records, Teach for America, TOMS and Krochet Kids—entrepreneurs play a critical role in forming how we as a society think, what we value, and who we are as humans. We often find ourselves suggesting that the future of culture is largely dependent on the worldview of the next generation of entrepreneurs. So what’s all the hype about, and how do we as followers of Christ engage in this sphere? Jon Hart from Praxis— a faith-motivated Venture Group with a portfolio of over 100 ventures around the globe, including businesses, nonprofits, and social enterprises—will offer his unique perspective on redemptive startups that are re-imagining culture with Christ at the center.
Scott Erickson and Justin McRoberts believe we pray because we’re human, not because we’re religious. Using stories from their own processes, visual art, music, and a few surprises, Scott and Justin will help you sift through the oddities and struggles often experienced in the practice of prayer.
In 2014, only 16% of people between the ages of 18 and 29 were married, which means that many of us are experiencing a season of singleness. How can we thrive in this season rather than wishing it away, as many do? There are very real pressures in culture, the Church, and our own expectations that cause us to doubt the goodness of singleness. Paul calls singleness a gift, but what does that mean when I’m lonely on a Friday night? What are the opportunities and invitations from God for this time of life? How can we address some of those pressures and challenges? Seasons of singleness can be some of the most fruitful, fun, and vibrant times in our lives. Come join us for breakthrough principles for living whole as a single person.
