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?

THE GRID: WHAT’S YOUR WORLDVIEW?


SECOND-YEAR MULTI-DAY EVENT | 6 HOURS OF CONTENT | COMPARES ATHEISM, EASTERN RELIGION, & CHRISTIANITY

This event will help students own their faith and stop renting it from their parents. The Grid unpacks the truth claims of three worldviews and their impact on our lives if we choose to live by them. Students are forced to answer the questions, “Do I live as if God does not exist?” and “Do I live my life solely by my emotions and feelings, rather than according to wisdom?” When comparing the three worldviews, it becomes apparent that Christianity provides the best explanation for reality and that the Gospel provides incredible hope for the world. During The Grid, students are introduced to the 6 biggest questions they will ever ask:

  • Reality: What is real?
  • Origin: Where do I come from?
  • Identity: Who am I?
  • Ethics: What is right and what is wrong?
  • Purpose: Why am I here?
  • Death: What happens when I die?

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


ONE-HOUR EVENT

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.


WE ARE WHAT WE LOVE


ONE-HOUR EVENT

This event encourages students to understand that the things they love come from what they think about and believe. It takes a hard look at what we truly care about. 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.

This one-hour presentation is included in Axis’ Pop Culture track, but it can also be utilized by schools and churches as a stand – event for classes, chapels, youth groups, or retreats.


HOW TO READ THE BIBLE LIKE THE DEVIL


ONE-HOUR EVENT

Often the full story of the Bible is lost because of our affinity for bite-sized nuggets of Scripture. Instead of asking the question, “What does this mean to me?” we should be asking, “What does this mean?” This session emphasizes that learning to read the Bible in context is crucial to our understanding of God’s story for the world.

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.


THE PROBLEM OF EVIL


ONE-HOUR EVENT

How can a good God allow evil in the world? This question has plagued Christians and non-Christians alike for centuries. This session provides thought-provoking answers to some of the toughest questions surrounding the issue of evil.


THE CASE FOR THE RESURRECTION


ONE-HOUR EVENT

Why did Jesus die, and why does it matter 2,000 years later? In this compelling event, Axis will provide evidence for the bodily resurrection of Jesus. But beyond the evidence, we will investigate how the resurrection changes EVERYTHING about what it means to be human, how we are to live, and how we can bring hope to a world filled with brokenness, pain, and death.


AM I A CHRISTIAN IF I DOUBT?


ONE-HOUR EVENT

All of us tend to doubt our faith at some point in our lives. There is a time and place for doubt, but if it’s not addressed, it can cripple one’s faith–sometimes permanently. In this session, we discuss how to doubt well.
