Time to wake up

Posted on Posted in culture, missiology, preaching

Enjoyed spending time with Lutheran evangelical leaders from around the world here in Oslo.

Had some frank and challenging conversations about:

1. Whether child sponsorship just develops dependency – with a Kenyan church leader.
2. What impact fatherless makes to the next generation – with a Peruvian church leader.
3. How the persecuted church can help the West with its missing generation – from a bishop from Ethiopia.
4. The challenge of empowering parents to disciple their children – with a Norwegian youth worker.

I am here giving 4 lectures:

1. God, the city and youth ministry – urbanisation and next generation mission.
2. It takes a whole church – intergenerational ministry for the 21st century
3. God’s heart for young people
4. Developing 21st century missionary disciples.



What a privilege to learn alongside these fantastic leaders.
I also came across this video thanks to one of the other speakers:

Some startling stats:

27% of the church is under 15 but 3% of budget spent on children’s ministry…

One thought on “Time to wake up

  1. Hey Krish!

    It was great meeting you, somehow after listening to you I not only feel but I know that my life will never be the same. The vision that I had for Youth Ministry is now more clearer than before. Thanks so much for your inspiration and action oriented talks that left us with the urge to move forward as a group.

    Thank You – Asante sana
