Keynotes' Overview

Discipleship in the 21st Century: Pitfalls To Avoid
Doing ministry can be so much of a routine that we have perhaps become complacent. We question the dwindling numbers of young people in our congregations or organisations without realising that we have perhaps stepped into pitfalls in discipling them. 

Digital Missions: The Next Frontier
A 2018 Straits Times news article reported that children who own mobile phones spend an average of 45 hours a week online. With our youths increasingly saturated in the online world, how are we meeting them where they are with gospel content? 

Witnessing to Address Deep Questions: Youth Edition
What are the deepest questions our youths are asking today? As church and parachurch leaders, we need to examine the ways we are listening to and engaging them.

Ministering to Youths with Depression and/or Suicidal Ideation
Does God say anything about the use of medication, psychological treatment, demonic oppression or possession when it comes to the topic of depression and/or suicide? What is a gospel-centred perspective in addressing mental health issues such as depression and suicide within the body of Christ? 

A Biblical Model of Revival Leadership
Learn a model of revival leadership for Christians who want to facilitate and spread revival in their contexts, with implications for evangelism, mission, and growth.
