co-culture

When the culture of a business becomes authentic and millennia old inter-ethnic tensions are discussed, resolved, and removed what can this mean for a community's culture?

In Connect we are seeing how Jesus focused conversations remove the barriers created by ethnic and intercultural tensions. How does Jesus transform marriage, family, relationships in and out of work and ultimately the wider community. Where does this type of transformation provide fertile soil for church growth? How is a region first discipled through the door of business or government?

What will change in the future when we will create biofuel and medicine by reprogramming the DNA of algae and no longer buy clothes but download and print them?

The world is changing and the question Connect is asking is "where are we positioning ourselves to be at the forefront of scientific and technological change"? As new technology disrupts and changes our world where are we as believers not only prepared to engage what is coming but shape and direct change toward Kingdom outcomes?

Imagine if a group of people build strategically and develop creative solutions for real global issues?

In Connect we run quarterly think-tanks on global issues to position ourselves to be effective in our service to global communities. Understanding the advances in global technological or political change are key for relevant responses that genuinely address the needs and concerns of our planet. Whether learning how AI will affect the global economy, environmental change will affect local community, or how failed states can be understood are just a few of the topics we engage.
