PBA’s Orlando Campus will present the sixth ministry forum on the topic of “Thriving in a Post-Christian Nation.”
Dr. Paul Copan, the Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, will lead the forum, taking a fresh look at how restoring the priorities of prayer and the Bible can fortify us, enable us to flourish and enhance our impact for Christ in a drifting, distracted and decaying culture. The forum is 8:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 12 at PBA Orlando, 4700 Millenia Blvd. Admission is free, but space is limited and registration is required.
Here is a description of the forum:
“Our social media, high-tech culture brings both benefits and burdens. Despite our pursuit of convenience, efficiency, and entertainment, we find our lives becoming more superficial and individualistic as well as less stable and less kingdom-oriented. What’s more, we live in a post-Christian nation, which also means professing Christians are less biblically literate and less able to articulate their faith; their identities are being shaped by false images; and they are more detached from church and community.
Jesus’ apostles declared: ‘We will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.’ The disciples have much to teach us moderns about restoring a kingdom-centered focus, of getting back to the basics. These include devotion to Scripture, cultivation of community, proclamation of the gospel, and dedication to prayer.”
The Orlando Campus Ministry Forum began in 2015 to examine thought-provoking and often difficult topics from a Christian worldview to equip Christians to more effectively engage culture and live out their faith.
Past topics have included race relations in America, the problem of pain and suffering, Christianity and Islam, examining cultural issues from a Christian perspective and the goodness of God in an evil world.
Seating is limited. Reserve your spot here.
