F9Pere Marquette HotelPeoria/BradSpanish-SpeakingSergio VillanuevaEncounters With His Glory | Discipling through Worship - Encuentros Con Su Gloria | Discipulando a través de la AdoraciónTo worship God is our highest calling and our greatest delight.

F9Courtyard Marriott HotelAltorpher RoomWays to Enter the Mission FieldDale Puckett, Aaron Arnold, Jesse FrameEngaging Global Youth: Technology and CommunicationMobile-cellular subscriptions have reached a penetration of 90% in developing countries. Internet user statistics are also surging, with over 40% of the world population online. In the US, 92% of teens report going online daily, including 24% who say they go online "almost constantly". Smartphones, Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and other new platforms of technology and communication are changing at a rapid pace with potentially profoud but also subtle influences on social life. Like any major shift in social behaviour or technology, there are pros and cons to these devices and services. How they impact behavior, how they can create new opportunities, solve problems, and create new problems are all issues that the Church must be thinking about. Youth are digital natives, to reach them, we must step into, or at least be aware of, their world "in the cloud." How can we turn these challenges into opportunities for holistic transformation?

In the process, the issues that relate to believers in other contexts will raise a mirror to challenges we face in our own culture today.
