The ABC's of Postmodern Christianity

Have you taken time to consider the big picture lately? The fact is, our "world" is in the midst of rapid changes that affect everything we do, especially our church experience. Len Sweet says that most people over thirty think like "immigrants" in today's fast paced culture, while people under 30, who grew up with all the changes, are now the "natives".

On Thursday, April 19th, Leonard Sweet will do a special CCN presentation on how to "indiginize" the gospel for the natives in our postmodern culture. In other words, how can we effectively reach people under 30 with the life-changing message of Jesus Christ? During this live satellite seminar, Len will give you an overview of what postmodern thinking looks like, and you’ll learn some unique ways to present the gospel to postmodern minds. Get all your leaders to this one and be prepared to learn a "foreign language".
