Discipling Digital Natives: Reaching people in a digital age

Session

The church in Australia has been shaped by a cultural history that no longer resonates with the digital generation. Yet the same generation are hungry for the hope that can be ultimately found in Jesus and the connection that can only be found in a healthy and relevant expression of the church. We explore this divergence and reflect on practical ways that local churches can do mission and discipleship with people in a tech-addicted world. How should we think theologically about the relationship between the analog and the digital? Can discipleship be done online? What could online mission look like? How do we disciple people well in an increasingly tech-addicted world? Join the conversation as we look at what is and dream about what could be.
