I recently did an urgent talk at a conference about the rapid shift happening in the Western world from the 'Gutenberg era' of literacy to the 'Zuckerberg era' of non-literacy and what that shift means to our mission to make disciples for Yeshua.
I then showed how a return to the ancient art of telling the stories of Scripture word of mouth is a surprisingly powerful solution to some of the problems that this change of eras is creating - and explained in very practical terms how to do it.
This talk could mean the difference between your kids staying with the faith or not. It could be the biggest thing to ever happen to you in your personal mission to make disciples for Yeshua.

Sam is a member of the Holy Language tribe, following Yeshua and learning Hebrew! Here's his story.
I'm really looking forward to learning Hebrew. I can't remember exactly how I found your site. Maybe on Derek Leman's site. I subscribe to his Daily D'var.
I love reading and better understanding my Bible. My Sunday School teachers used material from Ray Vander Laan for a couple of years in 2011- 2012.
Ray's video series teaches about Jesus from a 1st century, Jewish perspective and it really got me interested in learning the message of Jesus as His original disciples might have learned it.
I just returned in May from a 10 day trip to Israel.
I love the idea that Hebrew is the language of God and that with His finger He wrote on the tablets furnished to him by Moses- with his finger in Hebrew. I also love the design of the language.
