Global Mega-trends and Implications on Mission Mobilization
Presenter: Marv Newell, Sr. Vice President, Missio Nexus
Description: This webinar will examine key areas of change happening around the globe along with their implications on mission mobilization. From the digital revolution and continued evolution, to global exploitation, to opposition and hostility to our message, the impact that these, and others, has on mission mobilization will be noted. Each of the seven mega-trends that will be examined has contributed to an environment of uncertainty in missions. It is therefore important that we are clear about the redemptive mission of God, while at the same time aware and responsive to global changing realities. The opportunities are numerous if we understand current realities and then adjust our strategies in response to them.
