Faith for Exiles: 5 Research Based Insights to Help a New Generation Follow Jesus in a Digital Babylon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will feature new research insights and practical applications from David Kinnaman and Mark’s up coming book, Faith For Exiles: 5 Ways For A New Generation to Follow Jesus in Digital Babylon. We’ll look at key insights to understanding Millennials and Gen Z, but also look at our research of four groups of Christians and former Christians from this generation and what led some to become resilient disciples and others to walk away. This workshop includes practical tools to take back to your church for leading workshops to help apply the research concepts. We’ll also discuss the cultural shifts that are requiring the church to develop resilient disciples because the next generation is no longer living in a kind of “Jerusalem” as previous generations , but rather they are exiles in “Digital Babylon”. The Christian community has an unprecedented opportunity to influence the trajectory of the Millennial and Gen Z generations — and this provides inroads for the gospel by shaping a sense of calling and purpose, workplace wellbeing, human flourishing as well as generosity and godly ambition.
