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

Ministry of Belonging
All teenagers are wrestling with three ‘tasks’: Identity, Purpose and Belonging. But in our current culture, belonging has become the lens through which the other tasks are viewed. We’ll talk about why this shift occurred, and how we should respond.

The Church of "They": Loving and Leading Difficult People
Do you ever find yourself discouraged by what “they” say?  Combining their professional experiences in ministry and mental health, the presenters will focus on equipping church leadership to deal with the difficult personalities we sometimes encounter in our congregations.  Consideration will be given to direct face-to-face interactions, as well as to the indirect complaints of nameless, faceless critics.
Participants will:
•    Encounter a Scripturally-informed ethic of managing our anxiety when coping with difficult people
•    Assess and improve responses to others
•    Acquire practical suggestions offered by a network of experienced church leaders
