A Christian Vision of Technology


CPT Conference 2019

October 14–16 | Chicago, IL


The modern world presents Christians in general and pastors in particular with many profound and complex questions related to a biblical vision of and for technology. The rate of technological advancement in human culture has accelerated significantly in the last 200 years, and then accelerated again in the past 20. How should Christians think about smartphones? Artificial intelligence? Genetic technologies? Multi-site church? Virtual reality? Contraceptive technology? Social media?

The 2019 CPT Conference will seek to address these questions through the lenses of biblical wisdom, the historical Christian tradition, modern sociology, and ministry praxis. We invite you to join us.
