A Short Tour of Big Ideas that Shape Youth Culture

We hear about Lady Gaga and “sexting” and raves and Facebook. But, what does it all mean? And what kind of ideas drive the culture in which our teenagers live, breathe and consume? If youth culture is like a river, with its big waves and deep troughs, this seminar will help you to better understand its contours and currents, and how those contours and currents impact the way your teenage son or daughter sees the world.

You’ll leave this seminar with a better understanding of:

  • Paganism, pluralism and postmodernism, and how these three strains of thought impact your teenager’s world-view
  • Some of the practical implications for raising teenagers in a “multiple choice” moral climate
  • The difference between “looking at” and “looking along”, and how each approach impacts the way teenagers experience God
