THE THREADS: WHAT’S YOUR STORY OF THE WORLD?
FIRST-YEAR MULTI-DAY EVENT | 6 HOURS OF CONTENT | COMPARES POST-MODERNISM, ISLAM, & CHRISTIANITY
Rudyard Kipling once said, “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Faith is very similar. What do your students know about the story of God, with its grand beginning at creation, the tragedy of the fall, the redemptive story of Jesus, and the coming Kingdom of God? By comparing three different stories that seek to shape how we view reality, students are encouraged to think for themselves and develop a lifelong faith. Axis presents these three meta-narratives using the six literary elements of story:
- Setting: Where is the story taking place?
- Character: Who am I and what role do I play?
- Plot: What is the purpose of my story?
- Conflict: What acts as a roadblock in my story?
- Climax: Will I overcome the conflict and achieve my purpose?
- Resolution: How does the story end?
Includes: Chapel presentations, classroom sessions, teacher training, parent meeting, and supplemental resources and curriculum.

POP CULTURE: TECHNOLOGY, SCRIPTURE, & MEDIA
ONE-DAY EVENT | 3 HOURS OF CONTENT
Our Pop Culture track encourages students to think clearly and critically about discipleship. What ideas and messages from technology, Scripture, and entertainment are shaping their loves, habits, and lives? Each session encourages students to think clearly and critically about their spiritual formation.
The three sessions that make up the Pop Culture event are:
Alone Together: This session explores the effects of technology on our faith and relationships. Is technology making us more or less human? How are technology and social media impacting our habits, loves, and beliefs about relationships?
We Are What We Love: This session takes a hard look at what we really care about. The things we love come from what we think about and believe. By looking at music, movies, and various other media, students are encouraged to observe what they currently love in comparison to what they should love according to a biblical worldview.
Spend Yourself: We will encourage your students to think and live missionally. Jesus tells us if we want to gain life, we must give it away. Following Him means living a life of service and compassion, but in our culture of narcissism and self-promotion, what does that look like? This presentation will examine practical opportunities for students to move from apathy to compassionate action.

SOCIAL MEDIA LOVE AFFAIR
This Axis presentation explores the effects of technology on our faith and relationships. Students are encouraged to ponder tough questions surrounding their social media habits: “Is social media making me more or less human?” “Is the virtual me the real me?” And “How is social media impacting my relationships?”
This one-hour presentation is included in Axis’ Pop Culture track, but it can also be utilized by schools and churches as a stand-alone event for classes, chapels, youth groups, or retreats.
