Gen Z faces a mental health crisis. Anxiety and depression are at an all-time high. Suicide has risen to alarming levels. Some dismiss mental health issues as a “snowflake” problem but new evidence shows that it is a complex and often deadly public health emergency. Technology has propelled the rising generation into nervous exhaustion. Economic uncertainty has robbed them of a path to success. COVID-19 and the unraveling of civil society have only added fuel to the fire.

Presenters: Dr. Joannie DeBrito (Focus on the Family), David Galvan (Education for a Lifetime) & Dr. Jeff Myers (Summit Ministries)

Never before have your students been presented with so many options and different perspectives on how to make ethical decisions. The culture screams at us to “live our own truth” and tells us to “be a good person” while new technologies and a changing political landscape are framing our minds to focus on an idea of good that isn’t consistent with a Christian worldview. What do we need to be able to make God-honoring moral choices in an immoral world?

As Christians, how do we make sense of the ever-changing technologies and their corresponding practices while navigating the ethics behind them? Learn how to think critically and better equip our churches, schools, and families to uphold a biblical worldview of life.

Many teens suffer from isolation, depression, loneliness, and anxiety. This course focuses on how pornography and the increasing use of technology plays a role in these effects. When students look for community and acceptance through technology or intimacy through pornography they slowly lose their ability to connect with others in meaningful ways. We have the opportunity as their mentors and teachers to show them a better way to view ourselves and humanity and to live fully as Christ intended. Learn how to engage with your students in the midst of a technological and pornography-dominated culture.

According to Barna Group research, fewer than 20% of Christians have a biblical worldview. When it comes to key foundational beliefs about God, Jesus, Satan, salvation, and the Bible, 4 out 5 Christians reject the church’s orthodox teachings. Instead, Barna found that most Christians accept ideas fundamental to secularism, Marxism, Islam, new spirituality, and postmodernism. All of which are worldviews that vehemently oppose Scripture.

The Secret Battle of Ideas about God is Summit’s newest professional development curriculum. It is designed to help educators instill a Christian worldview into the hearts and minds of an entire school. School administrators and teachers will earn CEUs as they are introduced to the concept of worldview thinking. Participants will also examine the dominant non-Christian ideas that many believers have adopted today.

Qualifies for 2 CEUs or 14 contact hours (Bible) from ACSI, FACCS, AACS, ACTS, and ILCS
