History is measured by cultural change.

The Bronze Age. The Middle Ages. The Enlightenment. The Modern Age. Each of these eras was so named because of significant changes that distinguish it from the preceding cultures. In the last several decades observers have noticed another significant change. They call it the postmodern era. We call it the emerging culture.

We may love it, be indifferent to it or even hate it. But the church cannot ignore our changing culture since we are part of it. Our youth and young adults are inclined toward the visual, so how can we present sermons they will hear? Worship and music styles are rapidly changing, so how can we find a form that will appeal to everyone in our congregations? People don't respond as readily to our gospel presentations, so how can we effectively show them how appealing the good news of Jesus really is?

The emerging culture won't just blow over. We need to understand it and decide what our role as Christians is within it. The Emerging Culture Curriculum Kit designed by Jimmy Long will take your group through six experiential modules that explore, analyze and define the emerging culture. But more than that, it will help you shape your ministry for the rest of the twenty-first century.

The modules are

  • 1. Overview: From Modern to Emerging Culture
  • 2. Leadership: From Individual to Community
  • 3. Witness: Belonging Before Believing
  • 4. Communication: Word and Image
  • 5. Context: From Tribalism to God's Kingdom Story
  • 6. Implications: Transitioning to an Emerging Ministry

This kit includes

  • a copy of Emerging Hope by Jimmy Long, a newly revised edition of his book formerly titled Generating Hope
  • two CD-ROMs with PowerPoint presentations and video clips for all six modules (requires Windows 2000 or later, PowerPoint 97 or later, CD-ROM drive and 1.5 GB hard drive)
  • 1 leader's guide
  • 6 participants' guides
  • order forms for more guides and other resources

Here is everything you need in one package for you and a group to understand our new cultural environment and to move ahead powerfully in ministry.
