Innovation in World Mission: A Framework for Thinking About the Future
We serve a timeless gospel in a rapidly changing world. With mass urbanization, secularization, ubiquitous connectivity, political unrest, changes in global Christianity, the mobility of everything from people, ideas, to technology and disease, the world is changing faster than we have time to adapt. This webinar will discuss the Biblical basis for innovation, as well as the tools innovative ministries are using, to ensure they will produce a meaningful impact well into the future. We will use real-life examples from ministries, non-profits, and businesses that are successfully positioning themselves as leaders within the future, becoming like the chiefs of Issachar, knowing the times and understanding what to do.
