Why Axis?
 Join the Conversation
Culture is already having conversations with your students about identity, purpose, relationships, sexuality, and much more. To disciple them effectively, your teachers need to know their world and learn their language so they can join the conversation.
Guide the Conversation
By speaking students' language and entering their world, we can earn their trust and reclaim discipleship from culture. Teachers will learn how to guide students toward the truth claims of Scripture through the medium of culture.
Change the Conversation
Culture translation isn't just about becoming part of culture, it's about transforming it from within. Teachers will learn how to challenge students to ask better questions, engage thoughtfully with the world around them, and bring God's restoration to their world.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
This training is for any caring adult: parents, youth leaders, grandparents who use Axis resources and wants to help others do the same.  If you love what Axis offers, but recognize that you need the encouragement and accountability of a community group and desire to start one or already lead a small group with other parents, this intensive is for you. 
WHY TRAINING?
Axis desires to connect caring adults into communities for the sake of encouragement and accountability. This training will give leaders all the necessary tools to guide and lead other adults in starting everyday conversations with their teens. 
WHAT TO EXPECT?
This smaller training seminar will be the perfect place to connect with Axis staff, dig deeper into teen culture, and learn how to better disciple teens. You will get to be a part of launching this new training concept and help Axis further its' reach into other communities and families.
