Postmodern Ministry: Awakening to the New Reality

Ken Baugh
Bible Church

Neil Cole

Brian Mclaren
Cedar Ridge

Dieter Zander


After sleeping for a century, Rip Van Winkle had difficulty adjusting to changes in his world. But that's nothing compared to what pastors and church leaders are dealing with on a daily basis as we awaken to the reality of our postmodern world.

While postmodernity is alive and well in America, how are churches doing at moving from the modern way of thinking to a postmodern mindset? In this seminar, you'll have the opportunity to:
  • Discover the how and why of transitioning into a postmodern ministry
  • Learn about churches that have made the transition
  • Gain understanding of how you can reach this postmodern culture

The panel members have varied and impressive experience with postmodern ministry. Between them, they have led, planted, and consulted with postmodern churches, ministries, and "church within a church" formats. 

The trio will deal with the issues (and your questions) that surround what it takes to minister to the postmodern mindset. So get ready to awaken to the new postmodern reality!

Who should attend these seminars:

  • Senior pastors
  • Associate pastors
  • Youth pastors
  • Youth staff
  • Youth volunteers
