The vision of the Church & Culture Conference is to take a deep look at the most pressing cultural trends and realities, and how the church must respond in light of these insights. This is all with a clear target on the wall: the evangelization and transformation of culture through the centrality of the local church.
We live in a day that is marked by the rise of the "nones" (those who when asked what their religious affiliation is would respond, "nothing") and the generation coming of age through this rise - Generation Z. Gen Z kids are growing up in what is an increasingly post-Christian culture. Sadly, many churches are facing declining attendance particularly among the younger generation. The church needs to gain a better understanding of the characteristics of this generation, and the changes that must be made if they are going to be reached for Christ.
