Discipleship in the Age of Richard Dawkins, Lady Gaga, and Amazon.com

Grounding Believers in the Scriptural Storyline that Counters Rival Eschatologies

Too often, discipleship gets reduced to the personal and private practice of spiritual disciplines. However, we must also understand the time we are in and learn how to respond to current cultural developments. This workshop will encourage pastors to see disciple-making not only in terms of adopting spiritual disciplines but also in terms of countering the prevailing rival eschatologies of our contemporary setting (the Enlightenment, Sexual Revolution, Consumerism) with the purpose of demonstrating the church’s unique identity as God’s kingdom people.
