Identity Conversation Kit

In this presentation, we examine the false things we look to for identity, why we wear masks, what identity in Christ really means, as well as how those things inform our general and specific callings as Christians. Use this to jumpstart your own discussions.

You may find your teens connecting with this video better than you because we’ll be using their cultural references to communicate. Enjoy learning from the videos and your teen!

Teen Culture Masterclass

These three sessions were produced to give you: parents, teachers, pastors instruction on how research and know teen culture today – because it will change tomorrow. After you learn a bit of it, how do you understand what is really being said and what the bigger messages of the cutlure are from popular cultural artifacts. The list of questions covered in these trainings goes on:

– How do I find the buzz points of teen culture?

– After I know the culture, how do I talk about it with my teens without sounding fake?

– How do I take the conversation about Cardi B, Fortnite, or Rick and Morty deeper than surface level questions?

– Is it possible to build and grow a lifelong faith in my teens through cultural conversations??!!

– When and where does culture meet faith?

These videos are largely for you, the adult and leader who will be having these “culture-meets-faith” conversation. Whereas the Identity Conversation Kit is great to watch with or show to a teen – these Masterclass trainings are best for you.
