Description: Fueled by global secularization, the Global Youth Culture is largely influenced by one predominant worldview: Secular Humanism. In this relativistic culture, we are god and consumerism is our religion. This is a generation that does not look to the Church for answers, but believes it to be a dead and empty tradition of the past. Unfortunately, our evangelistic efforts are often presented within a framework that fails to connect with the presuppositions of a secular humanistic worldview. How can we respond to the growing worldview, lifestyle and moral gap that exists between the Church and secularized society? How can we engage the globally connected younger generation, especially those who are increasingly apathetic, cynical, and even opposed to Christianity?
Presenter: Aaron Pierce is the Executive Director of Steiger International, a worldwide mission organization that is called to reach and disciple the Global Youth Culture for Jesus.
