Conference Plenary Sessions
Knowing the signs of the times and how best to live in light of them - particularly as the church - is a powerful combination. One of the clearest signs of our day has been the marked rise of the "nones" - those who when asked what their religious affiliation is would respond, "Nothing." This doesn't necessarily mean that they are rejecting God, rather they simply ignore Him and don't see how He has any relevance for their lives. In this session, James Emery White - author of The Rise of the Nones - will reveal some of the cultural trends that have led to this staggering rise.
THE RISE OF THE NONES
The rise of the nones has produced the first post-Christian generation in American history, “Generation Z,” which is also the largest generation of our day. In this session, James Emery White - author of Meet Generation Z: Understanding and Reaching the New Post-Christian World - will introduce you to this generation, lay-out the most important marks of Generation Z, and offer three critical approaches to reaching them for Christ.
Meet Generation Z
In order to reach Generation Z, cultural bridges have to be built with the unchurched. For not only are we in a post-Christian culture, but the world is also a post-truth world. The church must figure out ways to change to reach a generation who, when presented with the truths of Scripture, often choose to respond: “So what?” In this session you'll learn how we, as the church, can and must change to be effective in speaking out in our post-Christian culture and to encourage church growth from those who are unchurched.
