The Wave of the Future:
Science & Technology
Who is Stronger?
Thanos or Captain Marvel? Would you rather be an elf, dwarf or hobbit? Are you excited that there might be a moon base this decade? Do you feel most worshipful when you’re in nature, or sitting around for hours chatting with friends about things that others find nerdy? If so, this DTS is for you!
About This Elective
For too long people have said that science and faith can’t mix. It used to be different – Christians were at the cutting edge of the scientific revolution! There are different challenges and opportunities today, and in this DTS we’ll explore what it means to be a disciple of Jesus who is interested in understanding Creation, dreaming about what might be possible in the future, and engaging in the fun parts of culture like books, movies and gaming.
Come and enjoy living in a community of Christian nerds who are learning to follow God while not compromising curiosity about the world!
Each week we’ll discuss interesting topics ranging from AI and transhumanism to evolution, climate change and miracles! There will also be time to explore some sci-fi and fantasy. In everything we’ll explore what it means to think about these as Christians. And then, we’ll spend time worshiping God as we cultivate the connection between science and the awe and wonder it reveals of the greatness and beauty of God!
We’ll also encounter plenty of problems and a lot of things which are possible, and we’ll continually take those things to God in prayer.
What To Expect?
A YWAM DTS is for people of all ages (17+) who are serious about taking their relationship with God to the next level. You’ll be in situations that challenge you and bring out your strengths and weaknesses as you learn to give your all for Jesus. You’ll learn how to hear God and to obey Him. Your relationship with God will be on the fast track!
