Something has changed. We all sense it. The cultural pressure is increasing, especially on our kids. But even in a world of ever-present screens, gender identity questions, and a host of other challenges, kids can have clarity and confidence. But we must help them. In this talk, we will examine today’s cultural challenges and provide a practical guide to equip parents, pastors, youth workers and Christian leaders to help the next generation navigate today’s world. Based on Brett’s book, co-authored with John Stonestreet
What is a worldview and why does it even matter? In this talk you’ll discover that everyone has a worldview but most people have never thought carefully about why they believe what they believe. Ironically, one’s worldview has profound consequences for all of life. We’ll take a quick look at the prominent worldviews in our culture and then discuss the very practical implications of worldview for how we live each and every day.
