Session Description

David Kinnaman says that the alarming church dropout rate among young adults primarily stems from a "disciple-making problem" (You Lost Me: Why Young Christians Are Leaving Church ... and Rethinking Faith). This multimedia session introduces a new paradigm for Christian worldview to address this issue. Based on the greatest commandment to love God, the paradigm directly connects Christian worldview to discipleship development in personal integrity, individual involvement, relational investment, socio-academic influence, cultural impact, and apologetic interaction.

Some Comments About the Session

  • "I just wanted to thank you for your presentation at the NACC this week! I was inspired to think again. I did not really even realize that I wasn't. Listening to your presentation I found that my mind has become consumed with the busyness of ministry and I rarely think deeply anymore. I am excited to share this, what I explained as, spiritually holistic approach to worldviews, and look forward to the curriculum on which you are working...."
