Digital Discipleship: Teens, Tech, and Social Media

The latest research tells us that our children and teens are spending over 8½ hours a day engaged with their screens. It’s no coincidence that as time spent on social media and screens has been steadily rising, there’s been a parallel rise and spike in anxiety, stress, depression, and suicide in our student populations. As a youth worker, you must engage in the process of “digital discipleship” by teaching your students how to use their smartphones and other technologies to God’s glory. In this seminar, Walt will offer insights into how and why technology is contributing to the decline in student spiritual, relational, and emotional health, along with strategies you can enlist in your ministry to teach kids to manage their devices, rather than allowing their devices to manage them. . . which ultimately will lead to health and wholeness.

CPYU seminars are available in various lengths and formats. We will work with you to adapt our seminars to fit your needs.
