The simulcast is available worldwide. We encourage you to gather with your friends, family*, small group, or church to participate. All you need in order to join us is a computer and an internet connection. Additional technical details can be found on the Technical Information page.

*Due to the content that will be discussed during the teaching sessions, we are issuing a PG-13 caution. David will be addressing topics such as abortion, sexuality, homosexuality, sex trafficking, modern-day slavery, and other related topics that may not be suitable for younger children. We are certainly not discouraging parents from allowing their children to participate, but we want each family to be able to make an informed decision for their children. Please refer to Secret Church: Family, Marriage, Sex, and the Gospel to get an idea of how David has handled this type of content in the past.

Christ, Culture, and a Call to Action

The culture around us is constantly changing, and successive changes are often accompanied by significant challenges. So how does the call of Christ compel us to respond to these challenges? How does a Christian respond to the rapid rise of so-called same-sex marriage and the increasing acceptance of homosexuality? How does a Christian live in a world of sex slavery and rampant pornography, a world where babies are aborted and widows are abandoned? How does a Christian think in a culture of pervasive racial prejudice and limited religious liberty? What does a Christian do in a church that exalts prosperity amidst a world of extreme poverty? During this Secret Church, we will explore biblical foundations for answers to these questions and come to significant conclusions regarding how Christ calls every Christian to engage culture with a firm grip on the gospel in the church and a fervent passion for God’s glory in the world.
