Today’s scientific age makes belief in God optional. How must churches and youth ministries respond and shift in our understanding and practice?


How does the church and the pastor’s role change with our secular age?  Pastors and church leaders are regularly told, “The world is changing.”  This comment usually refers to either technological changes–like a digital landscape, or philosophical changes–like postmodernity.  While these perspectives have their place, this presentation will make a different assertion: that our most fundamental challenge is that God is no longer an assumed reality—particularly in our scientific age.  Following historical transitions, this presentation will explore how ministry, the church, and the role of the pastor shift when belief in God and transcendence is optional.  What is this new period we are in? And what does this means for the practice of ministry and future of Christianity?

As part of this presentation everyone present will also receive access to the brand new youth ministry video curriculum: A Cosmic Adventure Through Faith and Science
