Church Leaders Reception: Faith for the Future - London
@LICC, St Peter's, Vere Street, London, W1G 0DQ
A church leaders reception for the launch of a brand new piece of research, Faith for the Future, that will introduce Barna’s largest ever study into how Christian leaders minister effectively to and alongside 18–35-year-olds. The evening will be a unique opportunity to explore how we can effectively both reach out to and disciple 18–35-year-olds. Hosted by the London Mission Collective and World Vision, the reception will consist of a live webcast from the States with Barna President David Kinnaman; a panel with influential thought-leaders; and round table discussions to explore the practical impact of the research on the local church. For over three years, the Barna team has studied what’s working to form resilient faith among Millennials and Gen Z worldwide. These research findings, commissioned in partnership with World Vision, which surveyed 15,000 respondents in 25 countries will unveil some key insights for the Church in London today.
