Precision Planting
With Rev. Joel Dykstra
Over the past few decades, the changing farming technology has steadily increased the land's yield. Planting has become a matter of great precision. At the same time, the changes in social media and our easy access to technology has made planting the seed of God's Word more challenging. How do we hold the attention of young people exposed to constantly changing images and sounds? How do we compete with the attractiveness of technology's presentation? And how do we shape the minds of young men so that they are transformed by the renewing of their minds? These are some of the questions we will tackle in this workshop. By thinking carefully about our message, our audience and our culture, our goal will be to equip Cadet leaders in discipling the young men under their care in the Word of God.
