A 49 Day Journey to Living a Transformed Life
SEE ABOVE – LIVE BEYOND
FACT: 40% of Emerging Adults (ages 18 to 29) claim no Christian affiliation whatsoever. That is expected to grow to 50% by 2025.
FACT: Only 5 out 100 emerging adults that claim a biblical worldview, actually live it out in daily life.
FACT: 75% of emerging adults that claim to “born-again” do not believe that Christ is the only way to heaven.
Is the Church failing the next generation? From these statistics, and many more, the answer is a resounding YES! What can be done? Current cultural trends are infiltrating the minds and hearts of Christians of every age and most so of young adults. Social media, music, the movie industry, and our pluralistic society are pulling believers by the tens of thousands into compromise and watered-down faith.
Grace Ministries, in partnership with the nationally-known Probe Ministries present “PERISCOPE”. Seven powerful sessions to equip believers to combat the onslaught of secular culture. Each session is uniquely designed to help us gain an eternal perspective (See Above) and find strength to walk in faith every day (Live Beyond). The sessions integrate thought provoking video, insightful and challenging discussion, and music from Dove Award winner, Jennie Lee Riddle.
*Periscope is born from the "ONCE CAPTIVE" project and the powerful resource tools in the book Cultural Captives.
"PERISCOPE" can be experienced in two ways:
1. A Full Church-Wide Project that includes the Church Assessment Survey, Music Package for worship/choir, Sermon Outlines, Online and/or DVD Sessions, Voicemail/Email Messages, Leader Guide, and Journey Devotional Book. See Leader Portal for details.
2. A Small Group program that provides the Online and/or DVD sessions, Music CD, Journey Devotinal Book, Leader Guide, and optional Voicemail/Email messages.
