Description: Global secularization, a trend closely tied to the globalization of culture among urban youth, presents a unique challenge to missions worldwide because of the large cultural gap that exists between the Church and secularized society. This next generation, connected by consumerism, social media, and the entertainment industry, forms the largest global culture ever to exist. As a result, global secularization is not limited to post-Christian regions like Europe or the USA. It is impacting cultures in urban centers of every region of the world, including the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. This workshop introduces the key influences, voices and worldview of the Global Youth Culture and the implications of global secularization to world missions. The primary audience for this workshop is church and mission leaders.
