Talk

Word in the City: Sharing the Bible with the Missing Generation

Date recorded: 21 May 2017 | Speaker: Simon Lennox | Event: ELF Workshop

Description

How do we get young adults who do not want to step foot in a church excited about studying the Bible? And is there any hope for getting this missing generation to church? In this talk we will hear the story of the new model of Bible study recently launched in Europe by Bible Study Fellowship (BSF). BSF is a global, in-depth Bible study programme with 1,100+ locations worldwide and over 500,000 members. Its innovative Word in the City is designed to help 20-to-40-year olds of all backgrounds read the Bible, know God, serve the Church, and benefit the city (www.wordinthecity.org). We will focus on the journey of Word in the City so far in the UK and Ireland and its particular application to young adults.
