When Worlds Collide: Bridging Gospel, Church and Culture
September 23 - 24 | St Anne's Anglican Church, Ryde - Sydney
This highly interactive conference was designed to facilitate rigorous theological reflection and challenging conversations as we explored the theological significance of culture, how church communities pass on Christian culture among youth and how youth ministry should respond to significant cultural shifts.
Keynote Speaker: The Rev Dr Jack Gabig

He is a graduate of Trinity School for Ministry in Pittsburgh (M.Div. 1995), and completed his Ph.D. research at King’s College, London (2007), in cultural studies and practical theology, looking at the role of popular culture in the religious lives of American teenagers.
