Summit Basecamp: Navigating a Technological and Pornified Culture


Are you in competition with technology to connect with your students? 

Many teens suffer from isolation, depression, loneliness, and anxiety. This event focused 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 live fully as God intended and 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.
