IMPACT 2020 | February 7-February 9
2020 Theme: Exiles
What does it look like to be a Christian in our rapidly changing world? The secular, sexual, and digital revolutions have left many believers asking this question. Christians must quickly come to grips with the fact that we no longer live in a culture that values a christian lifestyle. For evidence of this reality, look no further than ballgames on Sundays, the copious amount of sexual material and philosophy floating around in the public square, and the powerful distraction of technology to desensitize the conscience, isolate us from community, and sell a bill of goods regarding the good life through visual marketing.
Western culture was once dominated by the christian worldview. Living in the United States was akin to being a Jew living in ancient Israel. Being a christian and living a christian lifestyle was the expectation. But now, the christian way has been sacked by secularism and our culture has sold out. Christianity is no longer the social norm; it is the exception. We are no longer Jews in Jerusalem. We have been exiled to Babylon. This is nothing new for God’s people, but it does require us to consider what a faithful Christian life looks like in a secular, godless culture.
We are exiles, and though we may not feel that in fullness now, it will be upon us in Canyon, TX before we know it. Living as exiles requires a different mentality than living as one of the majority culture. We have to be different. We have to be radical. We have to be weird. We have to be counter-cultural.
Join us at this exciting weekend conference to consider what it looks like for you or your student to live faithfully as EXILES.
