  • IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:00:25.210 --> 00:00:27.030
  • WE HAVE THIS LITTLE THING IN CALIFORNIA CALLED
  • 00:00:27.050 --> 00:00:29.200
  • SILICON VALLEY, A LITTLE BIT OF A TECHNOLOGY THING
  • 00:00:29.220 --> 00:00:32.200
  • GOING ON.
  • 00:00:32.220 --> 00:00:34.250
  • BUT PASTOR BILL, WE NEED TO MAKE SENSE OF FIRST OF
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:38.200
  • ALL THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY WHICH IS INFLUENCE.
  • 00:00:38.220 --> 00:00:42.080
  • WHY DON'T WE TALK ABOUT WHAT INFLUENCE IS AND
  • 00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:45.180
  • WHAT DOES IT MATTER TO OUR AUDIENCE TODAY?
  • 00:00:45.200 --> 00:00:48.290
  • - BILL JOHNSON: WELL, THE LORD HAS CALLED US TO
  • 00:00:49.010 --> 00:00:51.230
  • BRING INFLUENCE.
  • 00:00:51.250 --> 00:00:53.040
  • HE'S CALLED US TO BE SERVANTS.
  • 00:00:53.060 --> 00:00:54.150
  • SERVANTHOOD IS OUR MAIN SUIT STILL, AND AS WE
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:57.020
  • LOOK THROUGH SCRIPTURE, HE SAYS OF THE KINGDOM OF
  • 00:00:57.040 --> 00:00:58.160
  • HEAVEN IS LIKE LEAVEN.
  • 00:00:58.180 --> 00:01:00.260
  • YOU WORK LEAVEN INTO DOUGH, YOU PUT IT INTO
  • 00:01:00.280 --> 00:01:02.240
  • THE RIGHT ATMOSPHERE AND IT HAS INFLUENCE ON THE
  • 00:01:02.260 --> 00:01:04.180
  • ENTIRE THING.
  • 00:01:04.200 --> 00:01:06.080
  • THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN WHICH MEANS THE REALM OF
  • 00:01:06.100 --> 00:01:08.090
  • GOD'S DOMINION IS LIKE LEAVEN, SO PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:11.260
  • LIVE IN PURITY, LIVE IN POWER, LIVE WITH WISDOM
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:14.160
  • HAVE BEEN SPRINKLED THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM,
  • 00:01:14.180 --> 00:01:17.210
  • SECULAR SYSTEMS TO SERVE.
  • 00:01:17.230 --> 00:01:21.130
  • NOT TO DOMINATE OR DOMINEER OR TO TAKE OVER
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:23.220
  • BUT TO SERVE, TO BRING OUT THE SIGNIFICANCE THAT
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:26.250
  • GOD HAS WRITTEN INTO THE CODE OF EVERY
  • 00:01:26.270 --> 00:01:29.120
  • PART OF CULTURE.
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:31.060
  • AND THIS IS THE ASSIGNMENT THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:01:31.080 --> 00:01:32.240
  • AS BELIEVERS.
  • 00:01:32.260 --> 00:01:34.230
  • HE CALLS US SALT.
  • 00:01:34.250 --> 00:01:37.010
  • HE SAYS WE'RE THE SALT OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:40.100
  • AND HE SAYS IF SALT HAS NO FLAVOR,
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:42.080
  • IT'S WORTHLESS.
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:43.170
  • AND THE WORD WORTHLESS THERE MEANS FOOLISH, SO
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:44.180
  • SALT WITHOUT FLAVOR IS FOOLISH.
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:45.150
  • SALT WITH FLAVOR IS WISDOM.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:47.150
  • THAT'S THAT DIVINE INFLUENCE.
  • 00:01:47.170 --> 00:01:49.120
  • AND WE TEND TO TAKE ALL CHRISTIANS, UNSCREW THE
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:51.190
  • SALT SHAKER, POUR IT IN THE CORNER OF THE MEAL
  • 00:01:51.210 --> 00:01:54.110
  • BECAUSE WE LIKE TO HANG OUT TOGETHER INSTEAD OF
  • 00:01:54.130 --> 00:01:56.140
  • SPRINKLED THROUGH THE WHOLE MEAL SO WE ENHANCE
  • 00:01:56.160 --> 00:01:59.050
  • THE FLAVOR THAT GOD HAS WRITTEN INTO THE DESIGN
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:01.180
  • OF EVERY CULTURE.
  • 00:02:01.200 --> 00:02:03.100
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:02:03.120 --> 00:02:04.200
  • - SO WE'RE REALLY TALKING INFLUENCE TODAY.
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:06.280
  • TODAY'S SET, YOU KNOW, THERE'S COMPUTER BOARDS
  • 00:02:07.000 --> 00:02:11.040
  • KIND OF SPRINKLED ALONG WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:13.050
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:14.240
  • WE GOT A ROLL-IN WE'RE GOING TO GO TO THAT'S
  • 00:02:14.260 --> 00:02:16.270
  • ENTITLED FAITH IN TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:18.160
  • WHAT IS OUR CALLING THEN?
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:19.290
  • WHAT IS THE BIG PICTURE OF EVERYONE'S CALLING
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:22.220
  • HERE ON EARTH?
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:25.100
  • - WELL, THE SCRIPTURE TEACHES QUITE CLEARLY
  • 00:02:25.120 --> 00:02:27.220
  • THAT EVERY BELIEVER BELONGS TO WHAT MANY
  • 00:02:27.240 --> 00:02:30.220
  • WOULD REFER TO AS THE PRIESTHOOD OF THE
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:33.220
  • BELIEVER, EVERY BELIEVER IS A MINISTER UNDER GOD
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:36.070
  • AND UNTO PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:36.090 --> 00:02:38.250
  • AND THAT RESPONSIBILITY GETS RID OF THE CLASS
  • 00:02:38.270 --> 00:02:42.110
  • THAT WE HAVE, THAT DIFFERENT SEGMENTS OF
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:46.100
  • CHURCH LIFE LIKE IF YOU'RE A MISSIONARY
  • 00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:48.200
  • YOU'RE REALLY CALLED BY GOD.
  • 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:50.130
  • IF YOU'RE A PASTOR YOU'RE DOWN THE LIST A LITTLE,
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:52.160
  • IF YOU'RE A TRAVELING EVANGELIST ON DOWN, AND
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:54.120
  • IF YOU'RE IN SECULAR CHURCH YOU'RE JUST THERE
  • 00:02:54.140 --> 00:02:56.150
  • TO MAKE MONEY SO THE CHURCH CAN SURVIVE WHICH
  • 00:02:56.170 --> 00:02:58.260
  • IS JUST A HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE CONCEPT BECAUSE
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:02.070
  • IF GOD'S CALLED SOMEBODY TO BE A DENTIST, THAT
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:04.220
  • CALLING IS AS HOLY AS THE GUY WHO IS CALLED TO BE
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:07.210
  • THE PASTOR.
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:09.260
  • IN FACT, I KNOW OF PEOPLE IN WHAT WE'D REFER TO AS
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:13.290
  • SECULAR OCCUPATION THAT TAKE THEIR JOB AS
  • 00:03:14.010 --> 00:03:17.110
  • SERIOUSLY AND SOME OF THEM MORE SERIOUSLY THAN
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:20.290
  • THOSE I KNOW WHO ARE IN "FULL TIME MINISTRY".
  • 00:03:21.010 --> 00:03:24.030
  • AND WHEN YOU LEARN TO TAKE THE NATURAL AND
  • 00:03:24.050 --> 00:03:27.070
  • BRING THE INFLUENCE OF GOD INTO THAT AREA OF
  • 00:03:27.090 --> 00:03:30.210
  • THEIR LIFE, REPAIRING CARS, DOESN'T MATTER WHAT
  • 00:03:30.230 --> 00:03:34.010
  • IT IS WHEN YOU LEARN TO BRING THE INFLUENCE OF
  • 00:03:34.030 --> 00:03:36.220
  • GOD INTO THAT AREA, THEN SUDDENLY WE'VE GOT LEAVEN
  • 00:03:36.240 --> 00:03:38.290
  • WORKING INTO THE SYSTEM TO CHANGE HOW PEOPLE
  • 00:03:39.010 --> 00:03:42.000
  • THINK, CHANGE WHAT THEY VALUE AND HOW THEY LIVE.
  • 00:03:42.020 --> 00:03:44.020
  • - SO WE GREW UP KIND OF IN A CULTURE WHERE IF
  • 00:03:44.040 --> 00:03:48.060
  • YOU WERE GOING TO GO TO SCHOOL YOU WERE GOING TO
  • 00:03:48.080 --> 00:03:50.120
  • GO TO BIBLE SCHOOL BECAUSE JESUS WAS COMING
  • 00:03:50.140 --> 00:03:52.150
  • AND THAT'S HOW THAT WAS THE IMPORTANT THING TO
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:55.070
  • TELL EVERYBODY THAT WAS HAPPENING.
  • 00:03:55.090 --> 00:03:57.020
  • SO A LOT OF PEOPLE OUR AGE DIDN'T GO TO A
  • 00:03:57.040 --> 00:04:00.280
  • TECHNOLOGY SCHOOL OR GO TO UNIVERSITIES THAT GOD
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:05.190
  • INTENDS DIFFERENT FIELDS OF THE WORLD BECAUSE WE
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:08.060
  • NEEDED TO BE IN BIBLE SCHOOL, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:04:08.080 --> 00:04:10.220
  • - OR NOT GO AT ALL.
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:12.160
  • - OR NOT GO AT ALL.
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:13.240
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:15.080
  • WE LOST A GENERATION OF INFLUENCERS AND PEOPLE
  • 00:04:15.100 --> 00:04:17.270
  • THAT HAD THE SKILL AND THE GIFT MIX TO BECOME
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:21.130
  • TODAY OUR JUDGES, TO BE THE LAWYERS TODAY, THE
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:24.230
  • POLITICIANS, THE CEOS, THE PEOPLE OF SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:27.230
  • INFLUENCE THAT -- SEE, PEOPLE AT THE TOP OF THAT
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:30.170
  • PLACE OF INFLUENCE THEY ARE THE ONES THAT
  • 00:04:30.190 --> 00:04:33.000
  • ESTABLISH VALUES.
  • 00:04:33.020 --> 00:04:34.140
  • IN A RIGHTEOUS WAY THERE'S A GODLY INFLUENCE
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:37.130
  • THAT TAKES PLACE WHEN YOU HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:04:37.150 --> 00:04:40.060
  • KINGDOM MINDED PEOPLE, THAT ARE SERVANTS OF
  • 00:04:40.080 --> 00:04:42.180
  • HUMANITY, THAT REALLY LOVE AND ARE GENEROUS AND
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:45.040
  • THEY COME UP WITH GOD'S SOLUTIONS FOR PROBLEMS.
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:47.200
  • THEY SET A STANDARD THAT PEOPLE WANT TO REACH TO,
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:50.180
  • AND THERE'S A RIGHTEOUS PEER PRESSURE SO TO SPEAK
  • 00:04:50.200 --> 00:04:53.210
  • THAT COMES INTO SOCIETY WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS ARE IN
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:57.200
  • THOSE PLACES TO LOVE AND TO SERVE.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:05:00.070
  • - WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY WE WANT TO BRING IN
  • 00:05:00.090 --> 00:05:03.130
  • A TECHNOLOGY KIND OF EDUCATION THING, BUT WHY
  • 00:05:03.150 --> 00:05:05.250
  • DON'T WE KIND OF GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF SET UP TO
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:09.070
  • WHAT -WE KNOW WHAT INFLUENCE IS ABOUT NOW.
  • 00:05:09.090 --> 00:05:13.230
  • YOU'VE EXPLAINED THAT.
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:16.040
  • INFLUENCE ULTIMATELY IS FOR ALL OF US TO HAVE NO
  • 00:05:16.060 --> 00:05:21.060
  • MATTER WHAT KIND OF JOB WE HAVE.
  • 00:05:21.080 --> 00:05:22.250
  • WE WANT TO HAVE INFLUENCE.
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:24.150
  • - WE'RE ALL IN MINISTRY.
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:25.200
  • - WE'RE ALL IN MINISTRY.
  • 00:05:25.220 --> 00:05:27.040
  • WE'RE ALL CALLED TO BE INFLUENTIAL, SO
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.270
  • ULTIMATELY THEN WHAT ARE THOSE KIND OF SPHERES OF
  • 00:05:28.290 --> 00:05:33.140
  • INFLUENCE THAT YOU CAN TALK ABOUT?
  • 00:05:33.160 --> 00:05:36.200
  • - PROBABLY THE MOST COMMON TERMINOLOGY IS
  • 00:05:36.220 --> 00:05:39.190
  • SEVEN MOUNTAINS, AND WE THINK ALONG THOSE LINES
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:42.230
  • OF PAUL TICKS, GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS,
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:46.060
  • ENTERTAINMENT, MEDICINE, EDUCATION, ET CETERA.
  • 00:05:46.080 --> 00:05:50.130
  • TECHNOLOGY, THE MEDIA AREA.
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:53.230
  • AND THE APPROACH WE TAKE HOWEVER IS TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:57.180
  • WE EQUIP PEOPLE TO ENTER THESE REALMS
  • 00:05:57.200 --> 00:06:00.190
  • OF INFLUENCE.
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:02.160
  • WE DIVIDE SOCIETY UP IN OUR THINKING THAT THERE
  • 00:06:02.180 --> 00:06:05.100
  • ARE DOCTORS, THERE ARE TEACHERS, THERE ARE
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:07.210
  • BUSINESS PEOPLE, THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT WORK IN
  • 00:06:07.230 --> 00:06:09.240
  • CERTAIN FIELDS, AND TO EQUIP THEM TO BE
  • 00:06:09.260 --> 00:06:12.260
  • EFFECTIVE SERVANTS AND INFLUENCERS.
  • 00:06:12.280 --> 00:06:15.260
  • I'M NOT OPPOSED TO SOMEBODY BECOMING THE CEO
  • 00:06:15.280 --> 00:06:18.150
  • OR THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY OR WHATEVER
  • 00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:20.210
  • IT MIGHT BE.
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:22.110
  • I JUST DON'T WANT US TO THINK IN TERMS THAT YOU
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:24.000
  • HAVE TO BE ON TOP TO HAVE INFLUENCE.
  • 00:06:24.020 --> 00:06:25.200
  • JOSEPH INFLUENCED PHARAOH.
  • 00:06:25.220 --> 00:06:27.140
  • HE WAS HIS SERVANT.
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:28.290
  • ESTHER INFLUENCED THE KING.
  • 00:06:29.010 --> 00:06:31.020
  • DANIEL INFLUENCED MULTIPLE KINGS.
  • 00:06:31.040 --> 00:06:33.100
  • AND NONE OF THEM WERE AT THE TOP, AND YET THEIR
  • 00:06:33.120 --> 00:06:35.200
  • INFLUENCE SHAPED THE DESTINY OF
  • 00:06:35.220 --> 00:06:39.170
  • ENTIRE NATIONS.
  • 00:06:39.190 --> 00:06:41.080
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO TAKE THAT POSTURE OF IF THE
  • 00:06:41.100 --> 00:06:43.160
  • LORD REWARDS US WITH BEING IN CHARGE, THEN
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:46.240
  • REMEMBER HOW YOU GOT THERE, BY LOVING AND CARE
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:49.020
  • AND SERVING PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:49.040 --> 00:06:50.290
  • GOD GIVES YOU FAVORITES ALWAYS FOR THE BENEFIT OF
  • 00:06:51.010 --> 00:06:53.010
  • THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU.
  • 00:06:53.030 --> 00:06:55.110
  • SO THE APPROACH WE TAKE IS LISTEN, IF YOU'RE IN
  • 00:06:55.130 --> 00:06:57.150
  • TECHNOLOGY, THEN BE EXCELLENT.
  • 00:06:57.170 --> 00:06:59.210
  • BE WISE.
  • 00:06:59.230 --> 00:07:01.150
  • TAP INTO THE INSIGHT OF GOD, THE PRESENCE OF GOD,
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:03.160
  • AND USE YOUR INFLUENCE TO SHAPE VALUES, TO SHAPE
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:06.080
  • CULTURE AS WELL AS PRODUCE A GOOD PRODUCT,
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:08.170
  • AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT.
  • 00:07:08.190 --> 00:07:10.230
  • SO IT DOESN'T MATTER THE SUBJECT, IF IT'S
  • 00:07:10.250 --> 00:07:13.070
  • ENTERTAINMENT, IF YOU'RE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE,
  • 00:07:13.090 --> 00:07:15.140
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT IT IS WE WANT THE
  • 00:07:15.160 --> 00:07:17.060
  • SAME OUTCOME.
  • 00:07:17.080 --> 00:07:18.270
  • - WE ARE NOT NEW COMERS TO THIS SUBJECT MATTER,
  • 00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:21.150
  • BUT THERE ARE SOME THAT ARE JUST STARTING TO GET
  • 00:07:21.170 --> 00:07:24.220
  • THEIR HEAD AROUND THIS, AND I SUPPOSE IF I'M
  • 00:07:24.240 --> 00:07:28.180
  • HONEST I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD ONE DAY BE ON A SET
  • 00:07:28.200 --> 00:07:36.290
  • WITH BILL JOHNSON AND A COMPUTER BOARD KIND OF
  • 00:07:37.010 --> 00:07:40.220
  • THING WOULD BE SITTING IN THE PLANT HERE AS
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:43.190
  • SET DECORATION.
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:46.050
  • SO HELP ME KIND OF GET PASSED THE IDEA OF BILL
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:53.230
  • JOHNSON WHO I THINK OF TESTIMONIES AND HEALINGS
  • 00:07:53.250 --> 00:07:58.090
  • AND WISDOM AND THESE KIND OF THINGS, AND ALL THE
  • 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:01.070
  • SUDDEN WE'RE SITTING HERE TALKING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:08:01.090 --> 00:08:05.050
  • - IT'S AN UNTAPPED MISSION FIELD.
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:08.110
  • IT'S BECOMING A MORE AND MORE DOMINANT PART OF
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:12.020
  • CULTURE IN THE SENSE OF IMPORTANCE.
  • 00:08:12.040 --> 00:08:14.100
  • ENTIRE BUSINESSES, THEY LIVE OR DIE BASED ON HOW
  • 00:08:14.120 --> 00:08:18.140
  • WELL THEIR TECHNOLOGY IS.
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:20.270
  • SO WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE BEING TRAINED.
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:23.190
  • IN FACT, THE BUSINESS LEADERS OF THE WORLD ARE
  • 00:08:23.210 --> 00:08:25.280
  • CRYING OUT FOREMOTHER PEOPLE TO DO CODING AND
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:28.080
  • THINGS OF THAT NATURE AND CREATE THE SOFTWARE, ET
  • 00:08:28.100 --> 00:08:31.280
  • CETERA, AND WHAT'S HAPPENING IS THAT SPACE
  • 00:08:32.000 --> 00:08:36.120
  • IN CULTURE IS BEING FILLED BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE
  • 00:08:36.140 --> 00:08:39.060
  • NO, VERY LITTLE MORAL VALUES, VERY LITTLE SENSE
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:43.230
  • OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND KIND OF THE THINGS WE'D VALUE.
  • 00:08:43.250 --> 00:08:48.050
  • SO IT'S A MISSION FIELD.
  • 00:08:48.070 --> 00:08:49.250
  • IT'S A PERFECT PLACE FOR US TO TRAIN PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:52.090
  • REALLY WANT TO BRING INFLUENCE, WHO WANT TO
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:54.070
  • LOVE AND CARE FOR PEOPLE BUT THEY HAVE SKILLS.
  • 00:08:54.090 --> 00:08:56.140
  • YOU KNOW, EVERY ONE OF US ARE GRATIFIED IN A
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:59.240
  • RIGHTEOUS SENSE WHEN WE USE OUR SKILLS FOR GOOD
  • 00:08:59.260 --> 00:09:02.210
  • PURPOSE, SO WHEN YOU HAVE SOMEBODY WHO HAS THAT
  • 00:09:02.230 --> 00:09:05.280
  • GIFT IN MATH OR IN COMPUTERS OR WHATEVER AND
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:09.110
  • THEY'RE ABLE TO USE IT AND THEN USE THAT
  • 00:09:09.130 --> 00:09:11.190
  • PLATFORM TO CARE AND LOVE FOR PEOPLE, IT JUST
  • 00:09:11.210 --> 00:09:13.270
  • SATISFIES THAT QUEST THAT WE HAVE IN OUR HEART TO
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:17.020
  • BRING HONOR TO GOD WITH OUR GIFTS AND OUR SKILL.
  • 00:09:17.040 --> 00:09:19.100
  • SO IT'S A MISSION FIELD.
  • 00:09:19.120 --> 00:09:21.010
  • - SO WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY IS HOW
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:24.080
  • BETHEL, AND WHEN WE THINK OF BETHEL WE THINK OF
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:28.210
  • YOUR TEACHINGS AND THE BOOKS YOU'VE WRITTEN AND
  • 00:09:28.230 --> 00:09:31.170
  • YOUR MUSIC THAT'S GOING AROUND THE WORLD, BUT I
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:35.190
  • THINK WE'RE ABOUT TO START RECOGNIZING A
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:40.110
  • BRAND-NEW SUBJECT, FAITH AND TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:45.030
  • TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:47.070
  • THIS WAS INSPIRED BY BETHEL'S ANNOUNCEMENT IN
  • 00:09:47.090 --> 00:09:50.210
  • REGARDS TO TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:09:50.230 --> 00:09:52.020
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:53.120
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:09:53.140 --> 00:09:57.110
  • - CHRISTIANITY, ISLAM, JUDAISM, ALMOST 80% OF
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:10:03.020
  • THE WORLD ASCRIBES TO ONE OF THE BIG THREE
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:05.200
  • FAITH TRADITIONS.
  • 00:10:05.220 --> 00:10:08.130
  • EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ADD HERE TO A
  • 00:10:08.150 --> 00:10:11.080
  • CERTAIN FAITH TRADITION, ACTUAL MEMBERSHIP IN
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:13.140
  • INSTITUTIONAL COMMUNITIES OF FAITH HAS
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:15.200
  • BEEN DECLINING.
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:17.060
  • - THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE TO CONVINCE YOU TO GIVE
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:18.180
  • UP YOUR JOY.
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:20.090
  • - SO WE ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING COMPANIES DON'T
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:22.160
  • DO VERY OFTEN WHICH IS WE CHANGED OUR MISSION.
  • 00:10:22.180 --> 00:10:24.100
  • - WE SAW AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP PEOPLE WHO CARE
  • 00:10:24.120 --> 00:10:26.140
  • ABOUT THEIR FAITH CONNECT TO COMMUNITIES OF FAITH
  • 00:10:26.160 --> 00:10:28.250
  • THAT MAY NOT NECESSARILY REQUIRE THEM TO GO
  • 00:10:28.270 --> 00:10:31.010
  • TO A BUILDING.
  • 00:10:31.030 --> 00:10:33.290
  • WE STARTED WORKING WITH CHURCHES AND COMMUNITIES
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:35.260
  • OF FAITH ALL AROUND THE WORLD TO FIRST DEEPLY
  • 00:10:35.280 --> 00:10:38.120
  • UNDERSTAND HOW DO YOU BUILD COMMUNITY OFF LINE
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:41.050
  • THAT MAKES PEOPLE ACTUALLY GET IN THEIR CAR
  • 00:10:41.070 --> 00:10:44.150
  • AND GO TO A BUILDING AND SPEND HOURS THERE SO WE
  • 00:10:44.170 --> 00:10:47.020
  • CAN UNDERSTAND HOW THAT'S MEANINGFUL TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:10:47.040 --> 00:10:49.040
  • AND THEN HOW DO WE REPLICATE THAT ON
  • 00:10:49.060 --> 00:10:51.150
  • OUR PLATFORM?
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:52.290
  • - WE SAW FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS COMING ON
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:54.270
  • THE PLATFORM AND WE SAW PEOPLE REALLY CONNECTING.
  • 00:10:54.290 --> 00:10:57.160
  • WE HAVE OVER 100.000 FAITH-BASED GROUPS ON
  • 00:10:57.180 --> 00:11:01.020
  • FACEBOOK ALREADY AND CONTINUES TO GROW.
  • 00:11:01.040 --> 00:11:04.180
  • AND I THINK WHAT WE SEE IS THE POWER OF
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:06.280
  • TECHNOLOGY TO BRING US CLOSER TOGETHER.
  • 00:11:07.000 --> 00:11:09.250
  • - TECHNOLOGY IS AMPLIFYING OUR
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:12.190
  • INTELLECTUAL ABILITY, NOT TO TAKE US WHERE WE'VE
  • 00:11:12.210 --> 00:11:14.190
  • ALREADY BEEN BUT TO ALLOW US TO EXPLORE, INVITE
  • 00:11:14.210 --> 00:11:16.120
  • AND CREATE.
  • 00:11:16.140 --> 00:11:18.270
  • - I DON'T THINK IT'S A ZERO SUM GAME.
  • 00:11:18.290 --> 00:11:21.140
  • I DON'T THINK THAT OKAY, YOU CAN JUST DO ON LINE
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:24.150
  • AND NOT DO OFF LINE.
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:26.150
  • I THINK THAT THEY ACTUALLY BOTH ENHANCE
  • 00:11:26.170 --> 00:11:29.000
  • EACH OTHER.
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:31.220
  • - I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE WORRY IF WE DO
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:33.280
  • THINGS ON LINE, WE WON'T DO THINGS IN-PERSON.
  • 00:11:34.000 --> 00:11:36.040
  • AND A LOT OF THE RESEARCH SAYS THAT'S NOT TRUE,
  • 00:11:36.060 --> 00:11:38.000
  • THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE LIKELY TO USE SOCIAL
  • 00:11:38.020 --> 00:11:39.290
  • MEDIA ACTUALLY HAVE CLOSER IN-PERSON RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:11:40.010 --> 00:11:42.210
  • - THERE'S A BALANCE BETWEEN THE NATURAL WORLD
  • 00:11:42.230 --> 00:11:45.060
  • AND THE SPIRITUAL WORLD, TAKING THE TIME TO BE
  • 00:11:45.080 --> 00:11:48.020
  • QUIET, TO LISTEN TO SPEND TIME WITH PEOPLE THAT CAN
  • 00:11:48.040 --> 00:11:52.020
  • NURTURE YOU, MENTOR YOU, KEEP YOU BALANCED.
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:56.290
  • - WE'RE LITERALLY CREATING THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:12:02.270
  • TO CONNECT WITH PEOPLE YOU WOULDN'T NORMALLY
  • 00:12:02.290 --> 00:12:05.130
  • MEET OR INTERACT WITH.
  • 00:12:05.150 --> 00:12:07.260
  • THAT LOWERS THE BARRIERS TO ACCESS COMMUNITY.
  • 00:12:07.280 --> 00:12:10.290
  • - PASTOR BILL JOHNSON, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?
  • 00:12:11.010 --> 00:12:15.140
  • WHY ARE YOU A PART OF THIS TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM?
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:21.100
  • - WELL, I REALLY INHERITED A BURDEN FOR
  • 00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:24.240
  • THIS FROM MY DAD.
  • 00:12:24.260 --> 00:12:26.050
  • HE TAUGHT, WAS VERY STRONG ON HIS TEACHING OF
  • 00:12:26.070 --> 00:12:28.140
  • THE PRIESTHOOD OF EVERY BELIEVER, NOT JUST IN A
  • 00:12:28.160 --> 00:12:29.260
  • CHURCH SERVICE TO SING SONGS TO GOD, BUT
  • 00:12:29.280 --> 00:12:32.130
  • THE RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:34.030
  • SO WE'VE BEEN PRACTICING THIS AND TEACHING ON IT
  • 00:12:34.050 --> 00:12:37.090
  • AT LEAST FOR 35 YEARS.
  • 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:39.190
  • BUT IT'S ALWAYS BEEN FOR THE INDIVIDUAL.
  • 00:12:39.210 --> 00:12:42.010
  • YOU'RE THE REAL ESTATE GUY.
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:43.130
  • I WANT TO HELP YOU TO HAVE INFLUENCE IN YOUR
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:45.030
  • PLACE OF INFLUENCE.
  • 00:12:45.050 --> 00:12:46.210
  • YOU'RE THE STAY-AT-HOME MOM, YOU'RE THE SCHOOL
  • 00:12:46.230 --> 00:12:48.260
  • TEACHER, BUT NOW WE'RE TAKING ON A SEGMENT OF
  • 00:12:48.280 --> 00:12:50.230
  • SOCIETY THAT REALLY IN SOME WAYS IS CRYING OUT
  • 00:12:50.250 --> 00:12:52.170
  • FOR HELP, CRYING OUT FOR WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER.
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:56.030
  • AND THAT'S PEOPLE THAT HAVE INTEGRITY, PEOPLE
  • 00:12:56.050 --> 00:13:00.120
  • THAT HAVE GREAT HOPE.
  • 00:13:00.140 --> 00:13:02.160
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT GO TO WORK EVERY DAY THEY
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:04.060
  • DON'T HAVE HOPE.
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:05.180
  • THEY'RE JUST DOING THEIR JOB.
  • 00:13:05.200 --> 00:13:07.090
  • AND WE HAVE INFECTIOUS HOPE ON WHAT WE BELIEVE
  • 00:13:07.110 --> 00:13:09.090
  • GOD IS DOING IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:13:09.110 --> 00:13:10.250
  • AND THEY NEED HELP AND WANT HELP.
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:12.110
  • THEY'VE ASKED US FOR HELP.
  • 00:13:12.130 --> 00:13:13.280
  • AND WE HAVE SOME OF THE TOOLS TO HELP THEM, SO
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:15.160
  • WE'RE REALLY ENCOURAGED.
  • 00:13:15.180 --> 00:13:17.060
  • - WE'RE REALLY TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING TODAY
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:19.090
  • THAT WE'VE NEVER TALKED ABOUT BEFORE, CERTAINLY
  • 00:13:19.110 --> 00:13:21.160
  • NEVER TALKED ABOUT PASTOR BILL JOHNSON ABOUT IT,
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:23.160
  • BUT FAITH AND CULTURE ARE MEETING IN
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:26.150
  • OUR GENERATION.
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:28.130
  • - YES.
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:29.240
  • - WE LOST A GENERATION.
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:31.040
  • - YES, WE DID.
  • 00:13:31.060 --> 00:13:32.160
  • - BECAUSE THE LORD'S RETURN WAS EMINENT.
  • 00:13:32.180 --> 00:13:34.010
  • - WHICH IT STILL IS.
  • 00:13:34.030 --> 00:13:36.060
  • WE JUST THINK ABOUT IT DIFFERENTLY NOW.
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:37.290
  • - WE JUST WE WANT TO OCCUPY IN A VERY UNIQUE
  • 00:13:38.010 --> 00:13:40.150
  • -- SPEAK TO THE OCCUPATION ISSUE.
  • 00:13:40.170 --> 00:13:43.280
  • - TO SAY THE LORD IS COMING BACK AND YOU STOP
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:46.270
  • WORKING IS TO MISS THE POINT.
  • 00:13:46.290 --> 00:13:49.280
  • YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO OCCUPY.
  • 00:13:50.000 --> 00:13:51.290
  • WE'RE TO TAKE OUR POSITION OF INFLUENCE IN
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:53.230
  • SERVICE UNTIL HE RETURNS.
  • 00:13:53.250 --> 00:13:55.240
  • WE WANT HIM TO RETURN FINDING US DOING WHAT HE
  • 00:13:55.260 --> 00:13:58.020
  • CALLED US TO DO, NOT STANDING ON THE EDGE OF A
  • 00:13:58.040 --> 00:14:00.040
  • CLIFF WAITING FOR HIM TO SHOW UP.
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:02.050
  • IT'S ABSOLUTE IRRESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:05.080
  • - IT'S LIKE THE TALENTS.
  • 00:14:05.100 --> 00:14:07.140
  • - YES, IT IS.
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:08.210
  • IN FACT, YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE GREAT REVIVALS IN
  • 00:14:08.230 --> 00:14:10.200
  • HISTORY THAT CAME TO AN END BECAUSE THEY WERE
  • 00:14:10.220 --> 00:14:12.170
  • EXPERIENCING SO MUCH OF GOD THEY JUST ASSUMED HE
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:15.100
  • WAS GOING TO RETURN ANY MOMENT.
  • 00:14:15.120 --> 00:14:17.190
  • SO IT LITERALLY JUST SHUT DOWN BECAUSE OF THEIR
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:20.000
  • ANTICIPATION WHEN THEY COULD HAVE TAKEN IT TO A
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:22.190
  • WHOLE OTHER LEVEL.
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:24.030
  • AND ALL OF US HAVE THAT RESPONSIBILITY IS TO
  • 00:14:24.050 --> 00:14:26.020
  • OCCUPY UNTIL HE COMES.
  • 00:14:26.040 --> 00:14:27.270
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.210
  • SO IF GRANDMA OR PARENTS, IF YOU HAVE KIDS THAT
  • 00:14:29.230 --> 00:14:32.190
  • KNOW WHAT THIS IS AND --
  • 00:14:32.210 --> 00:14:36.080
  • - SO WHERE'S THE FRONT OF THAT?
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:37.010
  • WHICH SIDE IS THE FRONT?
  • 00:14:37.030 --> 00:14:39.080
  • - THIS IS THE FRONT.
  • 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:40.010
  • THIS IS THE BACK.
  • 00:14:40.030 --> 00:14:41.090
  • THIS IS WHERE ALL THE SOD ERG IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:14:41.110 --> 00:14:42.160
  • I KNOW THAT MUCH.
  • 00:14:42.180 --> 00:14:43.190
  • - I NEED TO GO.
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:44.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:44.290 --> 00:14:46.090
  • - GRANDMA, IF YOU HAVE A GRAND KID THAT'S TELLING
  • 00:14:46.110 --> 00:14:48.050
  • YOU WHAT I HAVE IN MY HAND RIGHT NOW AND THEY
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:50.260
  • KNOW WHAT IT IS, THIS ROLL-IN IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:52.270
  • IT'S BETHEL TECH, TWO WORDS I THOUGHT I'D NEVER SAY
  • 00:14:52.290 --> 00:14:55.040
  • IN A SENTENCE.
  • 00:14:55.060 --> 00:14:56.190
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:14:56.210 --> 00:14:57.260
  • - WE LIVE IN AN ERA OF MASS INFORMATION.
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:15:01.240
  • SO MUCH DATA WE COULDN'T SIFT THROUGH IT IN A
  • 00:15:01.260 --> 00:15:03.280
  • THOUSAND GENERATIONS.
  • 00:15:04.000 --> 00:15:05.150
  • WHAT IF THERE WAS A VIRTUAL TRAINING GROUND
  • 00:15:05.170 --> 00:15:07.090
  • THAT EQUIPPED THE TECHNOLOGISTS MIND AND
  • 00:15:07.110 --> 00:15:09.220
  • SOUL WITH EXCELLENCE TO BE AN ANSWER TO A WORLD
  • 00:15:09.240 --> 00:15:12.110
  • CRYING OUT FOR TRUE AND AUTHENTIC CONNECTION?
  • 00:15:12.130 --> 00:15:14.180
  • WE NEED MEN AND WOMEN REGARDLESS OF BACKGROUND
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:16.170
  • TO RESPOND TO AN APPROACHING DEMAND TO
  • 00:15:16.190 --> 00:15:18.270
  • RUSH INTO THE WORLD LIKE A WATERLINE OF A FLOOD
  • 00:15:18.290 --> 00:15:20.270
  • AND RAISE UP A KINGDOM STANDARD.
  • 00:15:20.290 --> 00:15:23.000
  • THERE WILL BE OVER ONE MILLION UNFILLED TECH
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:25.080
  • JOBS WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS.
  • 00:15:25.100 --> 00:15:27.180
  • THESE AREN'T WHITE OR BLUE COLLAR JOBS.
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:29.070
  • THESE ARE THE NEW COLLAR JOBS FOR MINDS THAT SEE

  • TALENT REVOLUTION.

  • SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
  • 00:15:38.060 --> 00:15:39.150
  • DATA SCIENCE.
  • 00:15:39.170 --> 00:15:40.260
  • CYBER SECURITY.
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:42.020
  • MACHINE LEARNING.
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:43.190
  • THE FUTURE OF WORK IS IN THE DIGITAL WORLD AND
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:45.110
  • IT'S FULL OF QUESTIONS THAT NEED SOLUTIONS.
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:46.260

  • WILL YOU GO WHERE THERE'S A NEED?

  • INTRODUCE LOVE LIKE THE SEA THAT WILL TRANSPLANT

  • IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:05.030
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:16:05.050 --> 00:16:14.060
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:16:14.080 --> 00:16:15.230
  • KRIS, YOU'VE JOINED US NOW.
  • 00:16:15.250 --> 00:16:17.170
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT BETHEL TECH.
  • 00:16:17.190 --> 00:16:20.030
  • START US WITH KIND OF THE BACK IN THE DAY.
  • 00:16:20.050 --> 00:16:22.170
  • GIVE US A FEW STORIES THAT KIND OF SET THE
  • 00:16:22.190 --> 00:16:24.160
  • STAGE FOR WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:26.070
  • - SO SOMEWHERE AROUND 41 YEARS AGO, WE GOT --
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:29.150
  • - OLD.
  • 00:16:29.170 --> 00:16:31.020
  • - A PASTOR OF OUR 40 MEMBER ASSEMBLY OF
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:33.200
  • GOD CHURCH.
  • 00:16:33.220 --> 00:16:35.170
  • - WOW.
  • 00:16:35.190 --> 00:16:37.160
  • - AND ONE OF THE VERY FIRST MESSAGES I EVER
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:39.170
  • HEARD HIM PREACH OR TEACH -- BY THE WAY, WE WERE VERY
  • 00:16:39.190 --> 00:16:42.260
  • PENTECOSTAL, AND THEN I ALL THE SUDDEN INTRODUCE
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:47.100
  • THIS MAN STANDING BEHIND THE PODIUM LIKE TALKING,
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:49.090
  • NOT YELLING.
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:52.020
  • AND WE THOUGHT WELL, HE CAN'T BE ANOINTED.
  • 00:16:52.040 --> 00:16:54.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:54.170 --> 00:16:57.080
  • HOW DO YOU ANOINT SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T YELL?
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:59.200
  • BUT WE GOT TO BE GOOD FRIENDS RIGHT AWAY, BUT
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:03.240
  • BILL, ONE OF THE VERY FIRST MESSAGES I REMEMBER
  • 00:17:03.260 --> 00:17:06.210
  • BILL SHARING WAS THIS WHOLE THING ABOUT
  • 00:17:06.230 --> 00:17:09.280
  • MATTHEW 6, SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:17:10.000 --> 00:17:13.250
  • AND I REMEMBER BILL SAYING A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:18.130
  • HAVE A LIST, LIKE FIRST I SEEK THE KINGDOM, THEN I
  • 00:17:18.150 --> 00:17:21.040
  • SEEK MY FAMILY OR MY MINISTRY, WHATEVER.
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:24.040
  • I HAVE THIS LIST, AND BILL SAID, ACTUALLY WE
  • 00:17:24.060 --> 00:17:28.230
  • SEEK THE KINGDOM, AND IF IT ISN'T IN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:31.160
  • WE DON'T SEEK IT.
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:33.230
  • SO ALL THE SUDDEN -- I WAS IN BUSINESS AND BILL TOOK
  • 00:17:33.250 --> 00:17:36.030
  • THE BUSINESS WORLD, AND HE JUST, FOR ME, HE JUST
  • 00:17:36.050 --> 00:17:39.070
  • PULLED WHAT I DID EVERY DAY AND HE PULLED IT INTO
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:40.280
  • THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:42.270
  • AND ALL THE SUDDEN I WENT FROM THIS DUALISTIC
  • 00:17:42.290 --> 00:17:45.100
  • KIND OF THOUGHT, LIKE OKAY, I DO MY MINISTRY
  • 00:17:45.120 --> 00:17:48.030
  • BUT THEN I DO MY BUSINESS.
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:50.200
  • AND IN ONE MESSAGE BILL PULLED MY BUSINESS INTO
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:53.290
  • THE KINGDOM AND MADE IT MY MINISTRY.
  • 00:17:54.010 --> 00:17:58.010
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:17:58.030 --> 00:17:59.220
  • - THAT WAS REVOLUTIONARY THINKING FOR ME.
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.140
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:18:01.160 --> 00:18:03.110
  • - I THINK THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE
  • 00:18:03.130 --> 00:18:05.080
  • LEARNING IS THAT THERE'S IQ, THERE'S EQ NOW.
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:09.040
  • WE'RE HEARING A LOT OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:11.190
  • THERE'S BOOKS BEING WRITTEN.
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:13.110
  • BY THE WAY, I THINK THEY'RE GREAT BUT NO ONE
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:15.290
  • IS TALKING ABOUT SQ.
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.270
  • NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE.
  • 00:18:17.290 --> 00:18:20.010
  • AND PAUL SAID BE RENEWED IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND.
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.180
  • SO WE THINK TRY DIMENSIONALLY AND YET
  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:27.110
  • WE'RE ALL WORKING ON TWO DIMENSIONS OF THE
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:29.110
  • EDUCATION OF OUR MIND.
  • 00:18:29.130 --> 00:18:31.040
  • WE'RE BUILDING OUR IQ, BUILDING OUR EQ AND WE DO
  • 00:18:31.060 --> 00:18:33.090
  • IN A WAY I BELIEVE WE SHOULD, BUT I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:18:33.110 --> 00:18:36.240
  • IF ANYONE IS TALKING ABOUT HOW DO WE BUILD OUR
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:38.280
  • SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE?
  • 00:18:39.000 --> 00:18:40.210
  • HOW DO WE LEARN TO PARTNER WITH THE HOLY
  • 00:18:40.230 --> 00:18:42.270
  • SPIRIT AND TAP INTO THE MIND OF CHRIST?
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:45.130
  • AND WHEN WE'RE THINKING ABOUT THE MIND OF CHRIST,
  • 00:18:45.150 --> 00:18:47.200
  • WE'RE NOT JUST THINKING ABOUT WHAT DOES GOD THINK
  • 00:18:47.220 --> 00:18:50.080
  • ABOUT THIS VERSE, BUT WE'RE ACTUALLY THINKING
  • 00:18:50.100 --> 00:18:52.130
  • ABOUT, WHAT DOES GOD THINK ABOUT THIS CAR?
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:54.160
  • WHAT DOES GOD THINK ABOUT THIS SITUATION?
  • 00:18:54.180 --> 00:18:56.160
  • HOW DOES GOD THINK ABOUT -- HOW WOULD GOD REIMAGINE
  • 00:18:56.180 --> 00:18:59.220
  • THE ISSUES WE'RE HAVING WITH OUR ECONOMY?
  • 00:18:59.240 --> 00:19:04.120
  • I THINK WE NEED TO BUILD NEURO PATHWAYS INTO THE
  • 00:19:04.140 --> 00:19:07.270
  • SPIRIT OF OUR MIND AND NOT JUST INTO THE IQ AND EQ.
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:12.010
  • - TO SIT HERE TODAY AND BASICALLY BE TALKING
  • 00:19:12.030 --> 00:19:17.160
  • ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:19:17.180 --> 00:19:20.190
  • INFLUENCE, BEING SALT IN THE EARTH,
  • 00:19:20.210 --> 00:19:24.150
  • AND SPECIFICALLY NOW INTO BETHEL TECH,
  • 00:19:24.170 --> 00:19:27.190
  • YOU GUYS ARE AN INSPIRATION.
  • 00:19:27.210 --> 00:19:30.100
  • WE AT TBN APPLAUD WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 00:19:30.120 --> 00:19:34.190
  • WE'RE WANTING TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:37.010
  • BETHEL TECH, OKAY?
  • 00:19:37.030 --> 00:19:39.130
  • I DIDN'T SAY BETHEL WORSHIP, EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:19:39.150 --> 00:19:41.230
  • THAT'S A BIG THING.
  • 00:19:41.250 --> 00:19:43.050
  • WE DIDN'T SAY BETHEL MINISTRY, SCHOOL OF
  • 00:19:43.070 --> 00:19:45.190
  • MINISTRY AND THAT'S A BIG THING.
  • 00:19:45.210 --> 00:19:47.220
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT BETHEL TECH.
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:50.000
  • AND FOR THOSE THAT KNOW HOW TO DO MATH AND THAT'S
  • 00:19:50.020 --> 00:19:52.030
  • YOUR THING, WATCH THIS.
  • 00:19:52.050 --> 00:19:54.090
  • THIS IS AN AMAZING ROLL IN. BETHEL TECH. WATCH.
  • 00:19:54.110 --> 00:19:57.030
  • - TECHNOLOGY IS ONLY TECHNOLOGY TO THOSE BORN
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:14.240
  • BEFORE THE TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:17.040
  • THERE'S MORE THAN ONE WAY TO GET TO A RIGHT ANSWER.
  • 00:20:20.040 --> 00:20:24.160
  • - WE'RE THE INFORMATION AGE, AND THEREFORE
  • 00:20:25.180 --> 00:20:29.010
  • WHOEVER CONTROLS THE INFORMATION GATE
  • 00:20:29.030 --> 00:20:30.170
  • RULES THE WORLD.
  • 00:20:30.190 --> 00:20:32.170
  • - THERE'S A MASSIVE NEED FOR NEW TALENT
  • 00:20:33.070 --> 00:20:35.190
  • IN THE TECH SPACE.
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:38.030
  • THERE ARE OVER 500.000 OPEN COMPUTING JOBS
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:40.250
  • AS WE SPEAK RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:40.270 --> 00:20:43.110
  • THAT NUMBER WILL RISE TO OVER A MILLION IN THE
  • 00:20:43.130 --> 00:20:46.010
  • NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS.
  • 00:20:46.030 --> 00:20:48.110
  • - THE BETHEL SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY IS WORKING TO
  • 00:20:50.030 --> 00:20:51.290
  • FILL THOSE OPEN TECH POSITIONS WITH THE FIRST
  • 00:20:52.010 --> 00:20:54.030
  • OF ITS KIND FAITH-BASED CODING BOOT CAMP.
  • 00:20:54.050 --> 00:20:57.020
  • THIS INTENSIVE NINE MONTH MENTOR-BASED ONLINE PROGRAM
  • 00:20:57.040 --> 00:21:00.210
  • BLENDS TECHNICAL TRAINING WITH SPIRITUAL GROWTH.
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:03.240
  • - THE VISION OF BETHEL TECH IS TO BRING THE LOVE
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:07.000
  • OF CHRIST TO EVERYONE EVERYWHERE TO AND
  • 00:21:07.020 --> 00:21:10.170
  • THROUGH THE TECH SPACE.
  • 00:21:10.190 --> 00:21:13.160
  • - AND FOR ME IT'S THE THING THAT SEPARATES US
  • 00:21:13.180 --> 00:21:15.180
  • FROM ALL THE REST. THERE'S OTHER CODING CAMPS OUT
  • 00:21:15.200 --> 00:21:18.120
  • THERE, BUT WE'RE DOING SOMETHING UNIQUE THAT
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.110
  • I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE WHERE WE'RE TAKING
  • 00:21:20.130 --> 00:21:22.250
  • KINGDOM, CULTURE, AND SKILLS, AND PARTNERING
  • 00:21:22.270 --> 00:21:26.100
  • TOGETHER AND LAUNCHING THE LITERAL REVIVALIST
  • 00:21:26.120 --> 00:21:28.170
  • INTO THE TECH SPACE.
  • 00:21:28.190 --> 00:21:30.070
  • - WE SET OUT TO EQUIP BELIEVERS WITH THE MOST
  • 00:21:30.090 --> 00:21:33.290
  • IN DEMAND TECH SKILLS IN THE WORLD SO THAT
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:36.220
  • THEY CAN GO WORK FOR COMPANIES AND SERVE THOSE
  • 00:21:36.240 --> 00:21:38.120
  • ORGANIZATIONS WITH EXCELLENCE.
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:41.120
  • - THE BETHEL TECH TRAINING PROGRAM IS OPEN
  • 00:21:45.290 --> 00:21:47.190
  • TO RECENT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, CAREER
  • 00:21:47.210 --> 00:21:49.230
  • CHANGERS AND WORKING PROFESSIONALS, EVEN THOSE
  • 00:21:49.250 --> 00:21:52.140
  • WITH VERY LITTLE TECH SKILLS.
  • 00:21:52.160 --> 00:21:54.140
  • - A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK PERHAPS THAT THEY DON'T
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:56.190
  • HAVE THE TECH BACKGROUND TO DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS
  • 00:21:56.210 --> 00:21:59.120
  • AND GO IN TO AN ORGANIZATION AS A
  • 00:21:59.140 --> 00:22:01.220
  • SOFTWARE DEVELOPER, DATA SCIENTIST, BUT THE
  • 00:22:01.240 --> 00:22:04.180
  • REALITY IS THAT THEY DO.
  • 00:22:04.200 --> 00:22:06.170
  • IF THEY HAVE A PASSION FOR IT AND THEY HAVE THE
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:08.290
  • CHARACTER, WE CAN TAKE THEM FROM SCRATCH AND
  • 00:22:09.010 --> 00:22:11.280
  • PROVIDE THIS KIND OF LINEAR MODULAR APPROACH
  • 00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:15.280
  • SO THAT BY THE END OF OUR PROGRAM THEY'RE
  • 00:22:16.000 --> 00:22:17.290
  • PROFICIENT AND HIRABLE AS A FULL-STACK DEVELOPER.
  • 00:22:18.010 --> 00:22:21.260
  • WE SEE EDUCATION AS A VEHICLE TO TAKE SOMEBODY
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:25.070
  • FROM DESPERATE TO MIDDLE CLASS THROUGH A PROGRAM
  • 00:22:25.090 --> 00:22:28.040
  • LIKE OURS IN AS LITTLE AS NINE MONTHS.
  • 00:22:28.060 --> 00:22:31.250
  • THE STARTING PAY FOR A JUNIOR DEVELOPER IS
  • 00:22:31.270 --> 00:22:35.040
  • $70.000 DOLLARS, AND IT'S NOT UNCOMMON FOR A
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:38.210
  • MIDLEVEL DEVELOPER WITHIN THREE TO FIVE YEARS OF
  • 00:22:38.230 --> 00:22:40.240
  • BEING A DEVELOPER TO BE MAKING SIX FIGURES.
  • 00:22:40.260 --> 00:22:44.020
  • - AT BETHEL TECH, NOT ONLY WILL YOU BE PROVIDED
  • 00:22:44.040 --> 00:22:46.070
  • ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION AND MENTORING, BUT ADDITIONAL
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:49.070
  • SUPPORT AND OPEN DIALOGUE WITH CLASSMATES.
  • 00:22:49.090 --> 00:22:52.050
  • - WE LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.
  • 00:22:52.070 --> 00:22:53.290
  • WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL, COLLABORATION WAS CALLED
  • 00:22:54.010 --> 00:22:56.070
  • CHEATING BECAUSE EVERY PROJECT I EVER WAS
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:22:58.160
  • ASSIGNED WAS A SINGLE PROJECT.
  • 00:22:58.180 --> 00:23:01.090
  • I NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEVERAGE
  • 00:23:01.110 --> 00:23:03.230
  • EVERYBODY'S DIFFERENT DIVERSITY.
  • 00:23:03.250 --> 00:23:07.100
  • IN THE WORKFORCE, THAT'S KEY.
  • 00:23:07.120 --> 00:23:10.100
  • - BUT IT'S NOT JUST THE TECHNICAL SKILLS,
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:12.030
  • STRONG WORK ETHIC AND WILLINGNESS TO
  • 00:23:12.050 --> 00:23:13.270
  • COLLABORATE THAT EMPLOYERS ARE LOOKING FOR.
  • 00:23:13.290 --> 00:23:16.020
  • - WHETHER YOU'RE A BELIEVER OR NOT, THE
  • 00:23:16.040 --> 00:23:17.290
  • CHARACTER IS A BUZZWORD IN THE TECH SPACE.
  • 00:23:18.010 --> 00:23:21.030
  • THERE ARE A LOT OF COMPANIES THAT WANT TO
  • 00:23:21.050 --> 00:23:24.020
  • MAKE SURE THAT THEY'RE GETTING INDIVIDUALS WITH
  • 00:23:24.040 --> 00:23:26.120
  • HIGH INTEGRITY THAT AREN'T GOING TO GET THEM
  • 00:23:26.140 --> 00:23:30.050
  • IN TROUBLE SO THAT THEY END UP ON THE FRONT PAGE
  • 00:23:30.070 --> 00:23:32.080
  • OF THE NEW YORK TIMES.
  • 00:23:32.100 --> 00:23:34.040
  • MARTIN LUTHER KING JR SAID "INTELLIGENCE PLUS
  • 00:23:34.060 --> 00:23:37.070
  • CHARACTER, THAT IS THE TRUE GOAL OF EDUCATION."
  • 00:23:37.090 --> 00:23:41.220
  • THAT SPEAKS TO THE HEART OF WHAT BETHEL
  • 00:23:41.240 --> 00:23:43.200
  • SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY IS.
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:46.250
  • - THEY COME IN TO LEARN CODING, BUT WHAT IF WE
  • 00:23:46.270 --> 00:23:49.150
  • COULD SEE THE SOUL WHOLE TOO?
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:53.060
  • LIKE IT SAYS, IF THE SOUL PROSPERS, ALL THINGS PROSPER.
  • 00:23:53.080 --> 00:23:56.260
  • - ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:24:15.040 --> 00:24:16.120
  • - I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:24:16.140 --> 00:24:17.190
  • - CAN YOU IMAGINE REALLY WHAT, I MEAN, LOOK,
  • 00:24:17.210 --> 00:24:21.100
  • I HAVE GOOSE BUMPS IN REGARD TO WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:24:21.120 --> 00:24:24.200
  • TALKING ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:25.280
  • IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S FRESH BUT IT SHOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:24:26.000 --> 00:24:28.270
  • BEEN. IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SOMETHING.
  • 00:24:28.290 --> 00:24:30.080
  • PASTOR, TEACH JUST FOR A MOMENT, BOTH YOU GUYS,
  • 00:24:30.100 --> 00:24:32.160
  • JUST GIVE US THE OVERVIEW OF REALLY WHAT
  • 00:24:32.180 --> 00:24:35.150
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY.
  • 00:24:35.170 --> 00:24:37.050
  • - IT'S THE RESPONSIBILITY TO BE
  • 00:24:37.070 --> 00:24:41.260
  • KINGDOM MINDED PEOPLE AND ALLOW GOD TO SPRINKLE US
  • 00:24:41.280 --> 00:24:45.000
  • INTO CULTURE, INTO SOCIETY.
  • 00:24:45.020 --> 00:24:47.110
  • WE'RE NOT THERE TO DOMINATE, WE'RE NOT THERE
  • 00:24:47.130 --> 00:24:49.150
  • TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:24:49.170 --> 00:24:50.280
  • WE DO SHARE THE GOSPEL, WE DO PRAY FOR THE SICK,
  • 00:24:51.000 --> 00:24:53.030
  • WE DO ALL THAT STUFF BUT WE'RE THERE LITERALLY AS
  • 00:24:53.050 --> 00:24:55.070
  • SERVANTS OF THE LORD TO BRING ANSWERS, SOLUTIONS,
  • 00:24:55.090 --> 00:24:58.200
  • THINGS THAT PEOPLE ARE CRYING OUT FOR.
  • 00:24:58.220 --> 00:25:00.100
  • SOMETIMES WHAT BRINGS A PERSON TO CHRIST IS THE
  • 00:25:00.120 --> 00:25:03.010
  • FACT THAT YOU HAVE A HEALTHY FAMILY.
  • 00:25:03.030 --> 00:25:04.230
  • THEY SEE IT, THEY ADMIRE IT, THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW
  • 00:25:04.250 --> 00:25:06.230
  • COME YOUR TEENAGE KIDS ACTUALLY RESPECT YOU?
  • 00:25:06.250 --> 00:25:10.130
  • AND SO THERE'S THE VERY THING THAT DRAWS THEM TO
  • 00:25:10.150 --> 00:25:13.140
  • THE PLACE OF SAFETY, AND THAT'S WHERE YOU LOVE AND
  • 00:25:13.160 --> 00:25:15.270
  • YOU CARE AND YOU SERVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:15.290 --> 00:25:17.180
  • AND THAT'S REALLY THE BOTTOM LINE.
  • 00:25:17.200 --> 00:25:19.110
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT WE'RE GIFTED AT DOING,
  • 00:25:19.130 --> 00:25:21.090
  • IT'S JUST WE USE EVERYTHING WE ARE, EVERYTHING WE
  • 00:25:21.110 --> 00:25:23.180
  • HAVE TO PROMOTE THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:25:23.200 --> 00:25:27.060
  • - I THINK WE ALMOST HAVE AN UNREACHED PEOPLE
  • 00:25:27.080 --> 00:25:30.010
  • GROUP IN AMERICA.
  • 00:25:30.030 --> 00:25:31.140
  • WE TRAIN PEOPLE ALL THE TIME TO GO TO THESE
  • 00:25:31.160 --> 00:25:35.040
  • DISTANT PLACES, AFRICA, VILLAGES, AND WE LOVE ALL
  • 00:25:35.060 --> 00:25:39.120
  • OF THAT, BUT THERE'S, WE REALLY HAVE MISSED
  • 00:25:39.140 --> 00:25:43.190
  • A PEOPLE GROUP IN OUR OWN COUNTRY IN THAT SOME OF
  • 00:25:43.210 --> 00:25:49.070
  • THE WISEST, SOME OF THE SMARTEST MOST INTELLIGENT
  • 00:25:49.090 --> 00:25:51.270
  • PEOPLE IN AMERICA ARE IN THE TECH SPACE, AND
  • 00:25:51.290 --> 00:25:55.180
  • THEY'RE ACTUALLY DICTATING IF YOU WILL,
  • 00:25:55.200 --> 00:25:59.020
  • THEY'RE DICTATING THE NARRATIVE OF AMERICA, AND
  • 00:25:59.040 --> 00:26:04.060
  • LARGELY THEY'RE NOT BEING INFLUENCED BY THE
  • 00:26:04.080 --> 00:26:06.060
  • KING AND HIS KINGDOM.
  • 00:26:06.080 --> 00:26:08.040
  • AND THIS IS, I THINK THAT IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO
  • 00:26:08.060 --> 00:26:12.010
  • REALIZE IN THE INFORMATION AGE, WHOEVER
  • 00:26:12.030 --> 00:26:14.020
  • CONTROLS THE INFORMATION GATE, OR LET'S SAY
  • 00:26:14.040 --> 00:26:16.060
  • INFLUENCES THE INFORMATION GATE BECAUSE
  • 00:26:16.080 --> 00:26:18.050
  • WE HAVE NO DESIRE TO CONTROL ANYTHING, BUT
  • 00:26:18.070 --> 00:26:20.160
  • WHOEVER INFLUENCES THE INFORMATION GATE RULES
  • 00:26:20.180 --> 00:26:22.070
  • THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:26:22.090 --> 00:26:23.290
  • AND IT USED TO BE THE GOLDEN RULE: WHOEVER HAS
  • 00:26:24.010 --> 00:26:26.010
  • THE GOLD RULES; BUT TODAY IT'S WHOEVER
  • 00:26:26.030 --> 00:26:28.040
  • HAS THAT GATE REALLY RULES THE WORLD.
  • 00:26:28.060 --> 00:26:30.110
  • SO I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPERATIVE THAT WE RAISE
  • 00:26:30.130 --> 00:26:34.270
  • UP PEOPLE FOR EVERY REALM OF SOCIETY WHO CAN BRING
  • 00:26:34.290 --> 00:26:37.240
  • THE KINGDOM IN A VERY PRACTICAL WAY.
  • 00:26:37.260 --> 00:26:40.080
  • I WAS THINKING ABOUT JESUS WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:26:40.100 --> 00:26:42.070
  • YOU'RE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:26:42.090 --> 00:26:43.170
  • NEXT STATEMENT: DO YOUR WORKS IN SUCH A WAY THAT
  • 00:26:43.190 --> 00:26:46.080
  • PEOPLE SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS AND GLORIFY
  • 00:26:46.100 --> 00:26:47.200
  • YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:26:47.220 --> 00:26:49.080
  • IT'S LIKE HE JUST RELATED THAT WORKS WERE LIGHT,
  • 00:26:49.100 --> 00:26:51.270
  • THAT WORKS ILLUMINATE THE KINGDOM, SO SOMETIMES WE
  • 00:26:51.290 --> 00:26:56.180
  • THINK OF WORKS, THOSE OF US THAT ARE CAREER
  • 00:26:56.200 --> 00:27:01.270
  • PREACHERS, WE THINK OF WORKS AS MIRACLES, SIGNS
  • 00:27:01.290 --> 00:27:04.280
  • AND WONDERS AND PEOPLE RECEIVING JESUS, AND OF
  • 00:27:05.000 --> 00:27:06.250
  • COURSE IT INCLUDES THAT, BUT I THINK THAT WHAT
  • 00:27:06.270 --> 00:27:09.270
  • WE'RE TRYING TO DO NOW IS WRAP OUR HEARTS AROUND
  • 00:27:09.290 --> 00:27:13.250
  • WHATEVER NEEDS FIXED, WHETHER IT'S THE ECONOMY,
  • 00:27:13.270 --> 00:27:19.060
  • THE HOMELESS ISSUE WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTRY.
  • 00:27:19.080 --> 00:27:22.050
  • IT'S LIKE WHATEVER IT IS, JESUS HAS THE ANSWER.
  • 00:27:22.070 --> 00:27:24.250
  • HE HAS THE REAL WHOLENESS ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION.
  • 00:27:24.270 --> 00:27:29.160
  • I THINK WHAT WE'RE DOING IS JUST GETTING
  • 00:27:29.180 --> 00:27:31.240
  • BACK TO THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:27:31.260 --> 00:27:33.270
  • JESUS SAID I'LL BUILD THE CHURCH AND THE GATES OF
  • 00:27:33.290 --> 00:27:35.220
  • HELL WILL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT.
  • 00:27:35.240 --> 00:27:37.150
  • THEN 127 TIMES HE SAID YOU EXTEND THE KINGDOM
  • 00:27:37.170 --> 00:27:39.120
  • IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
  • 00:27:39.140 --> 00:27:41.210
  • AND IT'S KIND OF CRAZY BECAUSE MOST OF US BUILD
  • 00:27:41.230 --> 00:27:44.150
  • THE CHURCH AND WONDER WHO'S EXTENDING THE KINGDOM?
  • 00:27:44.170 --> 00:27:46.290
  • THEN THE DARKNESS GETS DARKER AND WE BLAME THE
  • 00:27:47.010 --> 00:27:49.070
  • DARKNESS. AND IT'S LIKE I THINK WE'RE THE LIGHT
  • 00:27:49.090 --> 00:27:51.110
  • OF THE WORLD, NOT THE LIGHT OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:27:51.130 --> 00:27:53.230
  • WE'RE ON THE VERGE OF THE GREATEST INVENTIONS IN
  • 00:27:53.250 --> 00:27:56.200
  • THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD BECAUSE WE'RE FINALLY
  • 00:27:56.220 --> 00:27:58.260
  • ALLOWING THE CREATOR TO ACTUALLY HAVE INFLUENCE
  • 00:27:58.280 --> 00:28:03.000
  • IN THE WORLD OF CREATIVITY AND NOT JUST
  • 00:28:03.020 --> 00:28:05.090
  • IN THE FOUR WALLS OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:28:05.110 --> 00:28:07.040
  • - FINAL THOUGHTS PASTOR?
  • 00:28:07.060 --> 00:28:08.260
  • - JESUS, AFTER HE SAID YOU'RE THE SALT OF THE
  • 00:28:08.280 --> 00:28:10.210
  • EARTH SAYS YOU'RE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, A
  • 00:28:10.230 --> 00:28:12.050
  • CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN.
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:14.150
  • SO HE CHANGES THE PICTURE NOW.
  • 00:28:14.170 --> 00:28:16.080
  • YOU HAVE A CITY THAT YOU ONLY SEE WHEN YOU'RE IN
  • 00:28:16.100 --> 00:28:19.280
  • DARKNESS AND IT'S THE LIGHT, IT'S SAFETY, IT'S
  • 00:28:20.000 --> 00:28:23.260
  • NOURISHMENT, IT'S REFUGE, IT'S COMMUNITY, ALL THOSE
  • 00:28:23.280 --> 00:28:27.040
  • THINGS ACTUALLY ATTRACT YOU FROM BEING LOST IN
  • 00:28:27.060 --> 00:28:30.030
  • DARKNESS TO THAT PLACE.
  • 00:28:30.050 --> 00:28:32.010
  • SO THERE'S A PART OF THE GOSPEL THAT'S NOT ABOUT
  • 00:28:32.030 --> 00:28:34.220
  • GOING, IT'S ABOUT BECOMING SOMETHING
  • 00:28:34.240 --> 00:28:37.020
  • THAT THEY WOULD COME TO.
  • 00:28:37.040 --> 00:28:38.180
  • - THAT'S GOOD. WOW.
  • 00:28:38.200 --> 00:28:40.200
  • - I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:28:40.220 --> 00:28:41.270
  • I JUST LOVE TO LISTEN TO YOU TALK, BOTH OF YOU.
  • 00:28:41.290 --> 00:28:44.240
  • - WE ARE TALKING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY, AND WE ARE
  • 00:28:44.260 --> 00:28:49.010

  • THE TESTIMONY. WE'VE TALKED ABOUT ALL OF IT.
  • 00:29:00.280 --> 00:29:03.040
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:29:03.060 --> 00:29:05.110

  • SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE TALKED THEMSELVES OUT OF
  • 00:29:53.110 --> 00:29:55.050
  • SOMETHING GREAT BECAUSE THEY DON'T THINK THAT
  • 00:29:55.070 --> 00:29:56.210

  • - I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER SEEN ONE OF THOSE.
  • 00:30:39.220 --> 00:30:41.080
  • - OKAY, RYAN, WHY DON'T WE START WITH HOW YOU GOT
  • 00:30:41.100 --> 00:30:44.190
  • CONNECTED TO THE BETHEL MOVEMENT AND HOW BETHEL
  • 00:30:44.210 --> 00:30:47.190
  • TECH REALLY STARTED.
  • 00:30:47.210 --> 00:30:49.260
  • - YEAH, SO MY FAMILY AND I, WHEN WE WERE IN
  • 00:30:49.280 --> 00:30:52.150
  • OKLAHOMA CITY, WE HELPED A CHURCH PLANT OUT THERE
  • 00:30:52.170 --> 00:30:55.100
  • AND IT WAS REALLY MY FIRST FORAY INTO MINISTRY.
  • 00:30:55.120 --> 00:30:58.190
  • I'VE BEEN WORKING IN CORPORATE EDUCATION
  • 00:30:58.210 --> 00:31:02.030
  • PARTNERSHIPS FOR ONLINE HIGHER ED.
  • 00:31:02.050 --> 00:31:04.070
  • FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS, TWELVE YEARS, AND WAS
  • 00:31:04.090 --> 00:31:08.060
  • WORKING WITH A COMPANY THAT OWNED ONE OF THE
  • 00:31:08.080 --> 00:31:12.000
  • BEST SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT BOOT CAMPS IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:31:12.020 --> 00:31:15.110
  • AND OVERNIGHT, I WAS SEEING THINGS THAT THE
  • 00:31:15.130 --> 00:31:19.020
  • MAJORITY OF MY PARTNERSHIPS WITH
  • 00:31:19.040 --> 00:31:20.170
  • COMPANIES LIKE IBM AND MICROSOFT AND CIGNA AND
  • 00:31:20.190 --> 00:31:23.200
  • LIBERTY MUTUAL, IT DIDN'T MATTER WHAT INDUSTRY,
  • 00:31:23.220 --> 00:31:25.270
  • THEY ALL NEEDED TECH TALENT LIKE YESTERDAY.
  • 00:31:25.290 --> 00:31:30.020
  • SO I WAS FOCUSED ON THAT BUT THEN ALSO
  • 00:31:30.040 --> 00:31:32.250
  • GETTING INTO MINISTRY.
  • 00:31:32.270 --> 00:31:34.150
  • AND THE LORD PUT IT ON MY HEART ONE NIGHT, I'D
  • 00:31:34.170 --> 00:31:38.220
  • ACTUALLY SPOKEN A MESSAGE ABOUT BEING THE LOVE OF
  • 00:31:38.240 --> 00:31:41.020
  • CHRIST TO EVERYONE EVERYWHERE, AND THAT
  • 00:31:41.040 --> 00:31:43.250
  • NIGHT GOD PUT IT ON MY HEART THAT WHAT I WAS
  • 00:31:43.270 --> 00:31:45.180
  • DOING ON THE CORPORATE SIDE AND WHAT I WAS DOING
  • 00:31:45.200 --> 00:31:47.250
  • ON THE MINISTRY SIDE WAS GONNA MERGE AND IT WAS
  • 00:31:47.270 --> 00:31:50.100
  • GONNA BE OVERT. SO I KIND OF TUCKED THAT AWAY.
  • 00:31:50.120 --> 00:31:53.150
  • AND THEN I WAS DRIVING BACK FROM A BUSINESS TRIP
  • 00:31:53.170 --> 00:31:56.170
  • FROM DALLAS TO OKLAHOMA CITY, AND I REMEMBER
  • 00:31:56.190 --> 00:31:58.220
  • SEEING, IT WAS ABOUT 4:30 IN THE AFTERNOON, AND I
  • 00:31:58.240 --> 00:32:01.250
  • REMEMBER SEEING THE SKY AND IT JUST REMINDED ME
  • 00:32:01.270 --> 00:32:04.060
  • OF A CALIFORNIA BLUE SKY, AND AS SOON AS I THOUGHT
  • 00:32:04.080 --> 00:32:07.130
  • CALIFORNIA, GOD PUT REDDING ON MY HEART.
  • 00:32:07.150 --> 00:32:10.160
  • AND WE KNEW OF BETHEL, SO WE GOT INTRODUCED TO
  • 00:32:10.180 --> 00:32:12.290
  • BETHEL THROUGH DANNY SILK'S "LOVING YOUR KIDS ON
  • 00:32:13.010 --> 00:32:16.010
  • PURPOSE," I STARTED READING SOME OF BILL'S
  • 00:32:16.030 --> 00:32:17.280
  • STUFF AND KRIS'S STUFF, AND OF COURSE WE KNEW
  • 00:32:18.000 --> 00:32:20.210
  • EVERY SUNDAY WE WERE DOING BETHEL MUSIC.
  • 00:32:20.230 --> 00:32:23.280
  • AND I GO HOME AND THEN NOT TOO LONG AFTER THAT,
  • 00:32:24.000 --> 00:32:28.230
  • MY WIFE COMES UP TO ME AND SHE SAYS RYAN, IS GOD
  • 00:32:28.250 --> 00:32:31.100
  • SAYING SOMETHING TO YOU ABOUT CALIFORNIA?
  • 00:32:31.120 --> 00:32:33.130
  • AND I WAS LIKE YEAH.
  • 00:32:33.150 --> 00:32:35.030
  • AND SHE SAID WELL WHAT IS IT?
  • 00:32:35.050 --> 00:32:37.110
  • I SAID I THINK WE'RE SUPPOSED TO MOVE TO REDDING.
  • 00:32:37.130 --> 00:32:39.120
  • AND SHE SAID THAT'S WHAT HE'S TELLING ME AS WELL.
  • 00:32:39.140 --> 00:32:41.090
  • - WOW.
  • 00:32:41.110 --> 00:32:42.180
  • - SO WE PRAYED ABOUT IT, HOLY SPIRIT CONFIRMED, SO
  • 00:32:42.200 --> 00:32:45.000
  • WE JUST SAID YES, LORD.
  • 00:32:45.020 --> 00:32:46.220
  • WE BUILT A BUSINESS PLAN, I MET WITH KRIS AND
  • 00:32:46.240 --> 00:32:48.290
  • BILL, AND THAT WAS IN AUGUST OF 2017.
  • 00:32:49.010 --> 00:32:52.010
  • WE HAD BEEN RENTING IN OKLAHOMA CITY.
  • 00:32:52.030 --> 00:32:53.260
  • WE KNEW OKLAHOMA CITY WAS TEMPORARY, SO WE DIDN'T
  • 00:32:53.280 --> 00:32:55.260
  • RENEW OUR LEASE AND GOT THE GREEN LIGHT AND MOVED
  • 00:32:55.280 --> 00:32:59.020
  • UP IN SEPTEMBER AND BUILT THE SCHOOL AND LAUNCHED
  • 00:32:59.040 --> 00:33:01.060

  • HEART OF WHAT BETHEL SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY IS.

  • OKAY, RYAN, YOU'RE A BETHEL EMPLOYEE IN CHARGE
  • 00:34:36.270 --> 00:34:40.010
  • OF THE BETHEL TECH.
  • 00:34:40.030 --> 00:34:42.220
  • YOUR BOSSES ARE BOTH SITTING HERE ON SET.
  • 00:34:42.240 --> 00:34:44.270
  • BE CAREFUL. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:34:44.290 --> 00:34:46.150
  • JUST BE CAREFUL HOW YOU DESCRIBE, BUT WHAT ARE
  • 00:34:46.170 --> 00:34:49.170
  • YOU LOOKING FOR WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:34:49.190 --> 00:34:51.150
  • SOMEBODY THAT COULD EXCEL IN CODING?
  • 00:34:51.170 --> 00:34:54.080
  • WHAT SHOULD THEY BE GOOD AT AT THE BEGINNING, NOT
  • 00:34:54.100 --> 00:34:56.210
  • AS MUCH SINGING, OKAY?
  • 00:34:56.230 --> 00:34:58.240
  • IT NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING ELSE, LIKE WHAT?
  • 00:34:58.260 --> 00:35:01.080
  • - WELL, FIRST OF ALL THEY HAVE TO HAVE A
  • 00:35:01.100 --> 00:35:03.150
  • PASSION TO BRING THE LOVE OF CHRIST TO
  • 00:35:03.170 --> 00:35:05.050
  • EVERYONE EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:35:05.070 --> 00:35:06.260
  • WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY WITH THE MOST INFLUENTIAL
  • 00:35:06.280 --> 00:35:09.200
  • SPACE IN THE WORLD TO REACH EVERYBODY IN THE
  • 00:35:09.220 --> 00:35:12.090
  • WORLD WHERE WE COULDN'T REACH THEM BEFORE.
  • 00:35:12.110 --> 00:35:14.110
  • SO THAT HAS TO START HERE.
  • 00:35:14.130 --> 00:35:16.230
  • AND THEN PEOPLE THAT HAVE A PASSION FOR TECHNOLOGY,
  • 00:35:16.250 --> 00:35:19.130
  • MAYBE THEY COME ALIVE WHEN THEY'RE ON SOCIAL
  • 00:35:19.150 --> 00:35:21.040
  • MEDIA OR THEY REALLY GEEK OUT TO FIGURING OUT HOW
  • 00:35:21.060 --> 00:35:24.190
  • APPLICATIONS WORK AND THE BACK END OF A WEB
  • 00:35:24.210 --> 00:35:28.140
  • APPLICATION, SO THOSE TYPES OF THINGS I THINK
  • 00:35:28.160 --> 00:35:31.120
  • ARE REALLY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:35:31.140 --> 00:35:32.250
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE LIKE TO STRESS AT BETHEL
  • 00:35:32.270 --> 00:35:35.050
  • TECH IS THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A TECH
  • 00:35:35.070 --> 00:35:37.090
  • BACKGROUND TO GO THROUGH OUR PROGRAM.
  • 00:35:37.110 --> 00:35:39.270
  • IN FACT, THERE ARE OVER 500.000 OPEN COMPUTING
  • 00:35:39.290 --> 00:35:43.140
  • JOBS RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK, AND THERE IS NOT
  • 00:35:43.160 --> 00:35:46.060
  • ENOUGH TALENT IN THE TECH SPACE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:35:46.080 --> 00:35:48.180
  • TO FILL THOSE JOBS.
  • 00:35:48.200 --> 00:35:50.210
  • SO WE NEED AN INFLUX OF NEW TALENT.
  • 00:35:50.230 --> 00:35:53.020
  • SO WHAT WE TRY TO STRESS TO PEOPLE IS WE CAN TAKE
  • 00:35:53.040 --> 00:35:55.120
  • YOU FROM SCRATCH AND IN NINE MONTHS THROUGH THIS
  • 00:35:55.140 --> 00:35:58.140
  • KIND OF MODULAR APPROACH CAN TEACH YOU TO BE A
  • 00:35:58.160 --> 00:36:01.070
  • FULL-STACK DEVELOPER OR DATA SCIENTIST SO YOU CAN
  • 00:36:01.090 --> 00:36:03.290
  • GO AND GET THESE JOBS MAKING $60, $70, $80.000
  • 00:36:04.010 --> 00:36:08.220
  • DOLLARS STARTING OUT WITH AN AMAZING CAREER
  • 00:36:08.240 --> 00:36:12.090
  • TRAJECTORY OF MAKING SIX FIGURES, BUT YOU CAN
  • 00:36:12.110 --> 00:36:15.120
  • USHER THE PRESENCE OF GOD IN THE MOST INFLUENTIAL
  • 00:36:15.140 --> 00:36:18.140
  • SPACE IN THE WORLD AND HAVE A PROFOUND IMPACT.
  • 00:36:18.160 --> 00:36:21.060
  • SO ONE OF THE KIND OF UNEXPECTED IMPACTS WHEN
  • 00:36:21.080 --> 00:36:23.220
  • WE LAUNCHED THIS PROGRAM, WE KNEW THAT WE'D HAVE
  • 00:36:23.240 --> 00:36:26.200
  • THE EAR OF THE FAITH-BASED COMMUNITY,
  • 00:36:26.220 --> 00:36:29.180
  • BUT WE STARTED GETTING AT THE TABLE WITH THE BIG
  • 00:36:29.200 --> 00:36:33.020
  • FOUR TECH COMPANIES, ALL THESE MAJOR COMPANIES WHO
  • 00:36:33.040 --> 00:36:35.280
  • ARE HIGHLY INTERESTED IN CHARACTER AND MAKING SURE
  • 00:36:36.000 --> 00:36:40.260
  • THAT THEY'RE BRINGING PEOPLE IN THAT WILL
  • 00:36:40.280 --> 00:36:43.030
  • ELEVATE THEIR WORKPLACE CULTURE.
  • 00:36:43.050 --> 00:36:45.010
  • SO THEY SEE US AS ONE OF THE FIRST EVER VALUES
  • 00:36:45.030 --> 00:36:49.010
  • BASED PURPOSE DRIVEN BOOT CAMPS IN THE WORLD AND
  • 00:36:49.030 --> 00:36:52.000
  • THEY'RE LIKE LET'S TALK.
  • 00:36:52.020 --> 00:36:55.080
  • - WOW.
  • 00:36:55.100 --> 00:36:56.260
  • YOU KNOW LAURIE AND I HAVE BEEN READING IN THE
  • 00:36:56.280 --> 00:36:58.160
  • OLD TESTAMENT, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE
  • 00:36:58.180 --> 00:37:01.220
  • ALMOST READING A DESCRIPTION OF KIND OF
  • 00:37:01.240 --> 00:37:04.080
  • LIKE DANIEL AND JOSEPH AND THE VERY
  • 00:37:04.100 --> 00:37:06.270
  • CHARACTERISTICS OF SOMEBODY THAT A PHARAOH
  • 00:37:06.290 --> 00:37:09.150
  • WOULD TAP TO BASICALLY SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT
  • 00:37:09.170 --> 00:37:12.220
  • WERE GETTING READY TO FACE THE KINGDOM OF EGYPT
  • 00:37:12.240 --> 00:37:14.210
  • AT THAT TIME IN JOSEPH'S CIRCUMSTANCE.
  • 00:37:14.230 --> 00:37:17.240
  • WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IS BETHEL TECH.
  • 00:37:17.260 --> 00:37:22.030
  • RYAN HERE JUST SAT DOWN WITH THE COO OF FACEBOOK,
  • 00:37:22.050 --> 00:37:27.080

  • - HI EVERYONE.
  • 00:37:37.200 --> 00:37:38.240
  • WE ARE HERE WITH THE AMAZING SHERYL SANDBERG,
  • 00:37:38.260 --> 00:37:41.180
  • CHIEF OPERATION OFFICER AT FACEBOOK HERE AT

  • FACEBOOK'S HEADQUARTERS AT MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:37:44.280 --> 00:37:47.190
  • SHERYL, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY.
  • 00:37:47.210 --> 00:37:49.240
  • - RYAN, THANK YOU FOR VISITING US ON WHAT IS A
  • 00:37:49.260 --> 00:37:51.180
  • RAINY, NOT SO SUNNY CALIFORNIA DAY.
  • 00:37:51.200 --> 00:37:54.220
  • - WELL, WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME,
  • 00:37:54.240 --> 00:37:56.080

  • 00:37:56.100 --> 00:37:59.040
  • FACEBOOK TO WORK WITH FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS,
  • 00:37:59.060 --> 00:38:02.120
  • AND SO I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT
  • 00:38:02.140 --> 00:38:05.060
  • THAT TODAY AND ONE OF THE THINGS I WANTED TO
  • 00:38:05.080 --> 00:38:07.120
  • START WITH IS JUST YOUR FOCUS, YOUR MISSION IN
  • 00:38:07.140 --> 00:38:12.050
  • HELPING BUILD COMMUNITIES SO LET'S START THERE.
  • 00:38:12.070 --> 00:38:14.170
  • WHAT IS THE REASON FOR YOU GUYS BEING SO
  • 00:38:14.190 --> 00:38:17.070
  • INTENTIONAL IN BUILDING COMMUNITY?
  • 00:38:17.090 --> 00:38:19.080
  • - WHEN FACEBOOK STARTED, WHICH IS NOW 15 YEARS
  • 00:38:19.100 --> 00:38:22.030
  • AGO, THE MISSION WAS TO HELP PEOPLE CONNECT AND
  • 00:38:22.050 --> 00:38:24.240
  • GIVE PEOPLE THE POWER TO SHARE, AND THAT'S
  • 00:38:24.260 --> 00:38:26.120
  • STILL VERY IMPORTANT TO US TODAY.
  • 00:38:26.140 --> 00:38:28.160
  • BUT OVER A YEAR AGO, MARK REALLY HAD A CHANCE,
  • 00:38:28.180 --> 00:38:31.160
  • OUR FOUNDER, TO THINK ABOUT WHAT MATTERED AND
  • 00:38:31.180 --> 00:38:34.200
  • AND IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO JUST HELP PEOPLE CONNECT.
  • 00:38:34.220 --> 00:38:36.230
  • IT'S ABOUT THE DEPTH AND IMPORTANCE OF THOSE
  • 00:38:36.250 --> 00:38:38.230
  • CONNECTIONS, AND THAT'S REALLY ABOUT COMMUNITY.
  • 00:38:38.250 --> 00:38:40.130
  • SO HE ACTUALLY DID SOMETHING COMPANIES DON'T
  • 00:38:40.150 --> 00:38:42.150
  • DO VERY OFTEN, WHICH IS WE CHANGED OUR MISSION,
  • 00:38:42.170 --> 00:38:44.060
  • AND OUR MISSION IS FOCUSED ON
  • 00:38:44.080 --> 00:38:46.070
  • BUILDING COMMUNITY.
  • 00:38:46.090 --> 00:38:47.250
  • AND ONE OF THE REASONS I'M SO EXCITED TO WELCOME
  • 00:38:47.270 --> 00:38:50.010
  • YOU HERE, EVEN THOUGH THE WEATHER IS NOT
  • 00:38:50.030 --> 00:38:52.050
  • COOPERATING, IS THAT FAITH-BASED COMMUNITIES
  • 00:38:52.070 --> 00:38:54.160
  • ARE SO IMPORTANT, BOTH TO PEOPLE'S LIVES OFF LINE,
  • 00:38:54.180 --> 00:38:57.000
  • BUT ALSO I THINK INCREASINGLY IN
  • 00:38:57.020 --> 00:38:59.190
  • PEOPLE'S LIVES ONLINE.
  • 00:38:59.210 --> 00:39:01.090
  • WE HAVE OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND FAITH-BASED
  • 00:39:01.110 --> 00:39:03.100
  • GROUPS ON FACEBOOK ALREADY, AND IT CONTINUES
  • 00:39:03.120 --> 00:39:05.050
  • TO GROW.
  • 00:39:05.070 --> 00:39:07.010
  • ONE OF THE THINGS WE'VE REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT IS
  • 00:39:07.030 --> 00:39:08.260
  • MEANINGFUL SOCIAL INTERACTION, THE
  • 00:39:08.280 --> 00:39:10.120
  • INTERACTIONS THAT MATTER.
  • 00:39:10.140 --> 00:39:12.060
  • AND IF YOU START THINKING ABOUT MEANINGFUL SOCIAL
  • 00:39:12.080 --> 00:39:13.270
  • INTERACTIONS, IT'S HARD NOT TO THINK ABOUT THE
  • 00:39:13.290 --> 00:39:15.180
  • INTERACTIONS IN GROUPS COMMUNITIES THAT
  • 00:39:15.200 --> 00:39:17.090
  • ARE FAITH-BASED.
  • 00:39:17.110 --> 00:39:19.010
  • SO I THINK IT'S A VERY NATURAL FIT, BOTH BECAUSE
  • 00:39:19.030 --> 00:39:21.000
  • OF WHAT'S ALREADY HAPPENING ON THE
  • 00:39:21.020 --> 00:39:22.290
  • PLATFORM, BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT TIES SO
  • 00:39:23.010 --> 00:39:24.230
  • CLOSELY INTO OUR MISSION AROUND COMMUNITY AND
  • 00:39:24.250 --> 00:39:26.190
  • AROUND THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER TO US.
  • 00:39:26.210 --> 00:39:28.140
  • - YEAH, I LOVE THAT.
  • 00:39:28.160 --> 00:39:30.050
  • NOW, YOU WROTE A BOOK, OPTION B, BACK IN 2017.
  • 00:39:30.070 --> 00:39:33.020
  • IT'S A BEAUTIFUL BOOK.
  • 00:39:33.040 --> 00:39:35.080
  • I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ANYBODY WHO IS INTERESTED
  • 00:39:35.100 --> 00:39:37.240
  • IN GETTING A GOOD READ, PICK UP THAT BOOK.
  • 00:39:37.260 --> 00:39:40.120
  • YOU ARE VERY -- YOU'RE INCREDIBLY TRANSPARENT
  • 00:39:40.140 --> 00:39:44.070
  • AND VULNERABLE ABOUT THE LOSS OF YOUR HUSBAND DAVE.
  • 00:39:44.090 --> 00:39:48.000
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS MOST INSIGHTFUL
  • 00:39:48.020 --> 00:39:51.000
  • FOR ME WAS WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT WHAT DAVE
  • 00:39:51.020 --> 00:39:54.220
  • WOULD WANT YOUR KIDS TO KNOW AS THEY GOT OLDER,
  • 00:39:54.240 --> 00:39:59.160
  • AND YOU SAID, CURIOSITY, KINDNESS, INTEGRITY AND LOVE.
  • 00:39:59.180 --> 00:40:04.000
  • AND I THINK THOSE ARE FOUR OF THE MAIN PILLARS
  • 00:40:04.020 --> 00:40:06.000
  • THAT ARE NEEDED TO BUILD COMMUNITY, TO MAKE THE
  • 00:40:06.020 --> 00:40:09.050
  • WORLD A BETTER PLACE AND TO IMPROVE WORKPLACE CULTURE.
  • 00:40:09.070 --> 00:40:12.180
  • SO HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THOSE FOUR PILLARS?
  • 00:40:12.200 --> 00:40:16.010
  • - WELL, CURIOSITY, CARING ABOUT WHAT OTHER
  • 00:40:16.030 --> 00:40:20.290
  • PEOPLE THINK, CONNECTING TO OTHER PEOPLE, WHETHER
  • 00:40:21.010 --> 00:40:23.010
  • WE DO IT IN-PERSON, AS YOU AND I ARE DOING THIS
  • 00:40:23.030 --> 00:40:25.020
  • CONVERSATION, OR MAYBE YOUR AUDIENCE THAT IS
  • 00:40:25.040 --> 00:40:27.060
  • CURIOUS ABOUT THE NEW GUESTS YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:40:27.080 --> 00:40:29.110
  • BRING ON AND WATCH YOU, OR WHETHER WE DO THAT
  • 00:40:29.130 --> 00:40:31.270
  • BECAUSE WE'RE EXPLORING ON LINE, AND WE FIND THINGS.
  • 00:40:31.290 --> 00:40:33.210
  • KINDNESS, KIND TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:40:33.230 --> 00:40:37.030
  • BELIEVE THE BEST. DON'T ASSUME THE WORST.
  • 00:40:37.050 --> 00:40:40.170
  • WHEN SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING THAT HURTS
  • 00:40:40.190 --> 00:40:42.130
  • OUR FEELINGS, WHICH HAPPENS, RIGHT?
  • 00:40:42.150 --> 00:40:44.070
  • ASK WHY, RATHER THAN LASH OUT.
  • 00:40:44.090 --> 00:40:46.190
  • INTEGRITY ALWAYS, BECAUSE WE HAVE TO ACT IN OUR OWN
  • 00:40:46.210 --> 00:40:50.200
  • BEST SELVES. BEING HONEST AND TRUE.
  • 00:40:50.220 --> 00:40:54.150
  • ACKNOWLEDGE WHEN WE MAKE MISTAKES.
  • 00:40:54.170 --> 00:40:56.180
  • ACKNOWLEDGE WHEN WE HAVE TO DO BETTER, AND LOVE,
  • 00:40:56.200 --> 00:40:59.060
  • WHETHER THAT'S LOVE FOR EACH OTHER AS HUMAN
  • 00:40:59.080 --> 00:41:01.200
  • BEINGS, LOVE FOR CHILDREN, LOVE FOR GOD,
  • 00:41:01.220 --> 00:41:04.210
  • MAYBE LOVE FOR SOMEONE WHO'S NO LONGER WITH US
  • 00:41:04.230 --> 00:41:07.010
  • BECAUSE IF THERE'S ONE THING I LEARNED THROUGH
  • 00:41:07.030 --> 00:41:09.060
  • THIS, I THINK THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE IN SO MUCH
  • 00:41:09.080 --> 00:41:12.120
  • OF YOUR AUDIENCE WHO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:41:12.140 --> 00:41:14.130
  • LOVE SOMETHING YOU CAN'T TOUCH OR FEEL,
  • 00:41:14.150 --> 00:41:16.170
  • AND THAT WOULD BE GOD, FOR SOME PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:16.190 --> 00:41:18.200
  • YOU CAN ALSO LOVE SOMEONE WHO'S NO LONGER WITH YOU
  • 00:41:18.220 --> 00:41:21.250
  • BECAUSE THE PERSON CAN PASS AWAY, BUT THE LOVE
  • 00:41:21.270 --> 00:41:24.050
  • IS THERE, AND THE LOVE IS REAL, AND YOU CAN LOVE
  • 00:41:24.070 --> 00:41:27.030
  • THEM EVERY BIT AS MUCH TODAY AS YOU DID WHEN
  • 00:41:27.050 --> 00:41:28.220
  • THEY WERE ALIVE.
  • 00:41:28.240 --> 00:41:30.110
  • AND I THINK THAT EXPERIENCE BECAME VERY,
  • 00:41:30.130 --> 00:41:33.110
  • VERY CONVICTED FOR ME AND I THINK FOR A LOT OF
  • 00:41:33.130 --> 00:41:35.220
  • PEOPLE WHO HAVE LOST PEOPLE.
  • 00:41:35.240 --> 00:41:37.130
  • - YES, YOU KNOW I HAVE A BELIEF THAT WE HAVE AN
  • 00:41:37.150 --> 00:41:40.130
  • INNATE DESIRE TO LOVE AND BE LOVED, AND THE BIBLE
  • 00:41:40.150 --> 00:41:43.210
  • SAYS IN GENESIS THAT GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE,
  • 00:41:43.230 --> 00:41:48.060
  • AND THEN IT SAYS THAT GOD IS LOVE.
  • 00:41:48.080 --> 00:41:51.280
  • SO IF YOU CONNECT THE DOTS, IF GOD LOVE, AND WE
  • 00:41:52.000 --> 00:41:54.120
  • WERE MADE IN HIS IMAGE, THAT WE ARE DESIGNED FOR LOVE.
  • 00:41:54.140 --> 00:41:58.010
  • SO I BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING THAT YOU
  • 00:41:58.030 --> 00:42:01.030
  • SHARED IN YOUR BOOK WAS ACTUALLY POINTING TO THAT
  • 00:42:01.050 --> 00:42:05.060
  • DESIRE FOR US TO CONNECT THROUGH LOVE.
  • 00:42:05.080 --> 00:42:07.070
  • - THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:42:07.090 --> 00:42:09.180
  • THANK YOU FOR SHARING THAT.
  • 00:42:09.200 --> 00:42:11.020
  • I REALLY BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE, AND I BELIEVE WE
  • 00:42:11.040 --> 00:42:12.280
  • FIND THAT BOTH IN CONNECTION TO FAITH BUT
  • 00:42:13.000 --> 00:42:15.270
  • ALSO IN CONNECTION TO EACH OTHER.
  • 00:42:15.290 --> 00:42:17.090
  • - YES, ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:42:17.110 --> 00:42:19.050
  • - THE ABSOLUTE KINDNESS PEOPLE WILL SHOW EACH
  • 00:42:19.070 --> 00:42:20.230
  • OTHER ONLINE.
  • 00:42:20.250 --> 00:42:22.150
  • THE STORY AFTER STORY AFTER STORY OF SOMEONE
  • 00:42:22.170 --> 00:42:24.280
  • SEEING SOMEONE ELSE IN NEED, WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:42:25.000 --> 00:42:27.260
  • SPIRITUAL NEED, WHETHER IT'S EMOTIONAL NEED,
  • 00:42:27.280 --> 00:42:29.210
  • WHETHER IT'S PHYSICAL NEED FOR A HOME
  • 00:42:29.230 --> 00:42:30.290
  • OR FOR A SHELTER.
  • 00:42:31.010 --> 00:42:32.180
  • I WAS JUST IN EUROPE, AND THERE'S A GROUP I BELIEVE
  • 00:42:32.200 --> 00:42:34.230
  • IN FRANCE, AND THERE WAS A WOMAN WHO WAS LIVING IN
  • 00:42:34.250 --> 00:42:37.140
  • HER CAR, WANTED TO TAKE HER OWN LIFE, POSTED
  • 00:42:37.160 --> 00:42:41.170
  • THAT, AND PEOPLE IN THIS GROUP SHE WAS IN JUMPED
  • 00:42:41.190 --> 00:42:44.000
  • IN, CONVINCED HER NOT TO COMMIT SUICIDE, GOT HER A
  • 00:42:44.020 --> 00:42:48.050
  • HOME, HELPED HER GET A JOB, AND THEN SHE DID A
  • 00:42:48.070 --> 00:42:50.150
  • POST LATER, "HAPPILY LIVING IN AN APARTMENT"
  • 00:42:50.170 --> 00:42:52.070
  • WITH HER DAUGHTER, RIGHT? - YEAH.
  • 00:42:52.090 --> 00:42:53.270
  • - A LOT OF THOSE WERE TOTAL STRANGERS.
  • 00:42:53.290 --> 00:42:56.020
  • THAT CONNECTION TO EACH OTHER IN LOVE -- NOT
  • 00:42:56.040 --> 00:42:58.110
  • EVERYONE IS GOOD, AND WE'VE CERTAINLY SEEN OUR
  • 00:42:58.130 --> 00:43:01.160
  • SHARE OF BAD ON OUR PLATFORMS AND OTHERS, BUT
  • 00:43:01.180 --> 00:43:03.290
  • DEEP IN MY HEART, I BELIEVE THAT MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:43:04.010 --> 00:43:06.150
  • ARE DEEPLY GOOD, AND THEY DO WANT TO CONNECT AND
  • 00:43:06.170 --> 00:43:09.130
  • HELP EACH OTHER, AND WE JUST HAVE TO
  • 00:43:09.150 --> 00:43:11.010
  • HELP THEM FIND THAT WAY.
  • 00:43:11.030 --> 00:43:12.260
  • - I LOVE THAT. LIGHT WILL ALWAYS OVERCOME DARKNESS.
  • 00:43:12.280 --> 00:43:14.230
  • IT'S A PHYSICAL REALITY.
  • 00:43:14.250 --> 00:43:18.030
  • - THE GOLDEN RULE IS TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WOULD
  • 00:43:18.050 --> 00:43:20.130
  • WANT TO BE TREATED, BUT THE PLATINUM RULE IS
  • 00:43:20.150 --> 00:43:22.150
  • TREAT OTHERS AS THEY WANT TO BE TREATED.
  • 00:43:22.170 --> 00:43:24.160
  • AND I THINK WHEN YOU'RE GOING THROUGH SOMETHING
  • 00:43:24.180 --> 00:43:26.100
  • HARD, LIKE FOR ME LOSING A SPOUSE, SUDDENLY MOST
  • 00:43:26.120 --> 00:43:28.100
  • OF YOUR FRIEND, NO MATTER HOW MEANING THEY ARE,
  • 00:43:28.120 --> 00:43:30.070
  • HAVEN'T HAD THAT EXPERIENCE, AND TRYING TO
  • 00:43:30.090 --> 00:43:32.090
  • TREAT YOU AS THEY WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED, THEY
  • 00:43:32.110 --> 00:43:34.150
  • DON'T KNOW. SO ASK PEOPLE.
  • 00:43:34.170 --> 00:43:37.120
  • YOU ARE FACING CANCER, YOU, WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
  • 00:43:37.140 --> 00:43:41.130
  • DON'T ASSUME YOU KNOW.
  • 00:43:41.150 --> 00:43:43.080
  • I THINK THAT COMMUNICATION AND THAT
  • 00:43:43.100 --> 00:43:44.260
  • DIRECT CONNECTION MAKES SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:43:44.280 --> 00:43:46.260
  • - THE PLATINUM RULE, YOU MENTIONED THAT.
  • 00:43:46.280 --> 00:43:49.090
  • - AND THEN THROUGH FACEBOOK, GIVE PEOPLE THE
  • 00:43:49.110 --> 00:43:51.200
  • ABILITY TO HELP EACH OTHER SO THAT WE
  • 00:43:51.220 --> 00:43:53.260
  • CAN BE OUR BEST SELVES.
  • 00:43:53.280 --> 00:43:55.250
  • I GUESS THAT'S MYSELF WHY.
  • 00:43:55.270 --> 00:43:57.130
  • WELL, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO
  • 00:43:57.150 --> 00:43:59.000

  • 00:44:06.250 --> 00:44:08.080

  • WE'RE CONSTANTLY EXPANDING.
  • 00:46:48.240 --> 00:46:50.190
  • ONE THING I WILL ADD IS A LOT OF TIMES WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:46:50.210 --> 00:46:53.160
  • THINK ABOUT TECHNOLOGY, THEY JUST THINK ABOUT THE
  • 00:46:53.180 --> 00:46:55.160
  • CODING AND THE COMPUTER SCIENCE SIDE OF IT,
  • 00:46:55.180 --> 00:46:57.110

  • BUILD ON THE PLATFORM.
  • 00:47:06.000 --> 00:47:07.210
  • THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT CRACKS AND
  • 00:47:07.230 --> 00:47:10.060
  • CREVICES WITHIN THE TECHNOLOGY SECTOR THAT
  • 00:47:10.080 --> 00:47:12.110
  • YOU CAN FIND YOUR VOICE AND YOUR SPACE.
  • 00:47:12.130 --> 00:47:15.290
  • AND SO EVEN IF YOU DON'T GET A COMPUTER SCIENCE
  • 00:47:16.010 --> 00:47:18.070
  • DEGREE, THE REALITY IS THERE IS A SPACE FOR YOU.
  • 00:47:18.090 --> 00:47:21.020
  • AND I THINK AS A COMPANY, AS WE GROW AND EVOLVE,
  • 00:47:21.040 --> 00:47:24.050
  • WE'RE ALWAYS TRYING TO BETTER UNDERSTAND OUR
  • 00:47:24.070 --> 00:47:26.060
  • USERS, AND WE'RE ALWAYS TRYING TO BETTER
  • 00:47:26.080 --> 00:47:28.000
  • UNDERSTAND THEIR INTERESTS.
  • 00:47:28.020 --> 00:47:29.220
  • SO YES, THERE IS A NEED FOR TECHIES & NON-TECHIES ALIKE.
  • 00:47:29.240 --> 00:47:33.130
  • - WE NEED TO SAY THANK YOU TO FACEBOOK, KIND OF
  • 00:47:33.150 --> 00:47:35.160

  • SO WE TOOK CAMERAS UP THERE.

  • WE GOT A LOT OF THAT, AND CHERYL SANDBERG, THANK

  • SO NONA, YOU KNOW ABOUT WHAT WE'RE KIND OF
  • 00:47:46.210 --> 00:47:49.180
  • TALKING ABOUT HERE.
  • 00:47:49.200 --> 00:47:51.210
  • BY THE WAY, THIS IS A FLUX CAPACITOR.
  • 00:47:51.230 --> 00:47:54.140
  • - IT IS, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS, THANK YOU.
  • 00:47:54.160 --> 00:47:57.120
  • - ACCORDING TO RYAN, THAT'S A FLUX CAPACITOR.
  • 00:47:57.140 --> 00:48:01.290
  • - YEAH, YEAH.
  • 00:48:02.010 --> 00:48:03.250
  • - AND BETHEL TECH IS ON THE VERGE OF TIME TRAVEL.
  • 00:48:03.270 --> 00:48:05.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:48:05.060 --> 00:48:06.280
  • BUT FOR REALS -- I CAN TAKE THAT FROM YOU.
  • 00:48:07.000 --> 00:48:09.160
  • - IS THAT REALLY WHAT IT IS?
  • 00:48:09.180 --> 00:48:11.030
  • - NO.
  • 00:48:11.050 --> 00:48:12.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:48:12.140 --> 00:48:13.290
  • - IT'S LIKE A RULER.
  • 00:48:14.010 --> 00:48:16.250
  • - ULTIMATELY, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE THAT ARE
  • 00:48:16.270 --> 00:48:20.270
  • VIEWING IN REGARD TO THIS PROJECT THAT WE'RE KIND
  • 00:48:20.290 --> 00:48:23.080
  • OF UNFOLDING HERE?
  • 00:48:23.100 --> 00:48:25.160
  • YOU HAPPEN TO WORK FOR ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:48:25.180 --> 00:48:28.270
  • WELL-KNOWN COMPANIES MAYBE IN THE WORLD, AND
  • 00:48:28.290 --> 00:48:32.070
  • THE IDEA THAT WE SHOULD BE SALT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:48:32.090 --> 00:48:39.020
  • IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING. YOU'RE LIVING IT.
  • 00:48:39.040 --> 00:48:43.250
  • WHAT DO PARENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE
  • 00:48:43.270 --> 00:48:46.050
  • ENVIRONMENT AND THE PROJECT THAT WE'RE
  • 00:48:46.070 --> 00:48:47.230
  • TALKING ABOUT HERE?
  • 00:48:47.250 --> 00:48:49.170
  • - WELL, I WILL START HERE AND SAY THAT I
  • 00:48:49.190 --> 00:48:51.180
  • BELIEVE THAT TECHNOLOGY, IN PARTICULAR SOCIAL
  • 00:48:51.200 --> 00:48:53.290
  • TECHNOLOGY, IS THE NEXT REFORMATION OF MINISTRY.
  • 00:48:54.010 --> 00:48:57.080
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:48:57.100 --> 00:48:59.000
  • - STATISTICALLY RIGHT NOW, TWO OUT OF THREE
  • 00:48:59.020 --> 00:49:01.290
  • CHURCHES ARE EITHER DECLINING OR PLATEAUING
  • 00:49:02.010 --> 00:49:03.240
  • IN ATTENDANCE, AND GALLUP DID A STUDY, THEY FOUND
  • 00:49:03.260 --> 00:49:06.110
  • THAT 40% OF AMERICANS SAY THEY'RE ATTENDING CHURCH
  • 00:49:06.130 --> 00:49:09.230
  • EACH WEEKEND, BUT ACTUALLY, IT'S 20%.
  • 00:49:09.250 --> 00:49:12.210
  • SO 80% OF PEOPLE ARE NOT SHOWING UP TO THE
  • 00:49:12.230 --> 00:49:16.040
  • BUILDING, AND THAT'S THE TRADITIONAL
  • 00:49:16.060 --> 00:49:18.100
  • MODEL OF MINISTRY.
  • 00:49:18.120 --> 00:49:20.070
  • 75% OF AMERICANS ARE ON FACEBOOK, THREE OUT OF FOUR.
  • 00:49:20.090 --> 00:49:24.050
  • AND I'VE HEARD FROM SO MANY PASTORS WHO HAVE
  • 00:49:24.070 --> 00:49:26.290
  • SAID, I DON'T TO BE ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:49:27.010 --> 00:49:28.190
  • I DON'T WANT TO GO ON FACEBOOK.
  • 00:49:28.210 --> 00:49:30.060
  • AND THE QUESTIONS I ALWAYS POSE TO THEM IS IF
  • 00:49:30.080 --> 00:49:32.100
  • 75% OF YOUR COMMUNITY WAS CONGREGATED IN ONE AREA,
  • 00:49:32.120 --> 00:49:35.060
  • YOU MEAN TO TELL ME YOU WOULD NOT HAVE
  • 00:49:35.080 --> 00:49:36.230
  • A LOCATION THERE?
  • 00:49:36.250 --> 00:49:38.170
  • AND THEY'RE LIKE, OF COURSE I WOULD.
  • 00:49:38.190 --> 00:49:40.060
  • I'M LIKE, IT'S THE EXACT SAME THING, BUT THE
  • 00:49:40.080 --> 00:49:42.060
  • DIFFERENCE IS NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR
  • 00:49:42.080 --> 00:49:44.010
  • BRICK AND MORTAR, YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:49:44.030 --> 00:49:45.130
  • PAY FOR UTILITIES.
  • 00:49:45.150 --> 00:49:47.040
  • MY GOODNESS, IT'S A GREAT INVESTMENT.
  • 00:49:47.060 --> 00:49:48.220
  • I THINK FOR THE PEOPLE WHO AREN'T SITTING HERE,
  • 00:49:48.240 --> 00:49:51.060
  • YOU HAVE TO REALIZE NO NOW YOU DON'T NECESSARILY
  • 00:49:51.080 --> 00:49:53.280
  • HAVE TO HAVE 20 YEARS IN MINISTRY IN ORDER TO
  • 00:49:54.000 --> 00:49:56.260
  • ADVANCE THE GREAT COMMISSION.
  • 00:49:56.280 --> 00:49:58.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO NECESSARILY HAVE
  • 00:49:58.170 --> 00:49:59.290
  • GONE TO SEMINARY.
  • 00:50:00.010 --> 00:50:01.150
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO RENT OUT A BUILDING.
  • 00:50:01.170 --> 00:50:03.140
  • NOW YOU CAN ACTUALLY SPREAD THE GOSPEL JUST
  • 00:50:03.160 --> 00:50:06.060
  • WITH YOUR FINGERTIPS AT ANY MOMENT.
  • 00:50:06.080 --> 00:50:08.240
  • YOU CAN SHARE WHAT GOD IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:50:08.260 --> 00:50:10.290
  • SO I LIKE TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE THAT WAY BECAUSE
  • 00:50:11.010 --> 00:50:13.290
  • PEOPLE OFTEN THINK THAT MINISTRY REQUIRES A TITLE
  • 00:50:14.010 --> 00:50:16.050
  • OR IT REQUIRES ALL OF THIS TRAINING, BUT THEN
  • 00:50:16.070 --> 00:50:19.010
  • YOU LOOK AT WHAT JESUS DID, RIGHT?
  • 00:50:19.030 --> 00:50:21.120
  • HE BASICALLY SAW THESE 12 MEN AND WAS LIKE,
  • 00:50:21.140 --> 00:50:24.230
  • HEY, FOLLOW ME.
  • 00:50:24.250 --> 00:50:27.070
  • HE DIDN'T SAY, GO TO SCHOOL, THEN A FEW YEARS
  • 00:50:27.090 --> 00:50:30.110
  • LATER WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS, RIGHT?
  • 00:50:30.130 --> 00:50:32.100
  • AND I THINK THAT WHAT SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY HAS
  • 00:50:32.120 --> 00:50:34.070
  • DONE IS IT'S ALLOWED US TO RETURN TO THE BIBLICAL
  • 00:50:34.090 --> 00:50:36.250
  • MODEL OF MINISTRY.
  • 00:50:36.270 --> 00:50:38.240
  • JESUS DIDN'T STAND ON A STREET CORNER AND SAY,
  • 00:50:38.260 --> 00:50:41.120
  • HEY, GUYS, COME AND SEE MY NEXT SERMON SERIES
  • 00:50:41.140 --> 00:50:43.120
  • ON SUNDAY, RIGHT?
  • 00:50:43.140 --> 00:50:45.060
  • HE WITNESSED TO PEOPLE RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE.
  • 00:50:45.080 --> 00:50:47.170
  • HE MET THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE RIGHT WHERE THEY STAND.
  • 00:50:47.190 --> 00:50:50.070
  • - SO GOOD.
  • 00:50:50.090 --> 00:50:52.070
  • - AND SO THAT'S WHAT SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY
  • 00:50:52.090 --> 00:50:53.180
  • ALLOWS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:50:53.200 --> 00:50:55.150
  • IT'S NOT ABOUT A TIME, A PLACE, A LOCATION.
  • 00:50:55.170 --> 00:50:57.090
  • IT'S INSTANTLY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:50:57.110 --> 00:50:59.020
  • YOU CAN ACTUALLY WITNESS TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:50:59.040 --> 00:51:00.270
  • YOU CAN PROVIDE HOPE IN DESPERATE SITUATIONS, AND
  • 00:51:00.290 --> 00:51:02.260
  • I BELIEVE THAT'S THE POWER, THE POWER
  • 00:51:02.280 --> 00:51:04.190
  • THAT IT GIVES ALL OF US.
  • 00:51:04.210 --> 00:51:06.240
  • THE THING THAT I ALWAYS TELL PARENTS WHO ARE JUST
  • 00:51:06.260 --> 00:51:08.260
  • SO CAUTIOUS ABOUT SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY IS, I'M LIKE,
  • 00:51:08.280 --> 00:51:10.290
  • LISTEN, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BUILD THE NEXT
  • 00:51:11.010 --> 00:51:13.160
  • GENERATION OF MINISTRY LEADERS, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:51:13.180 --> 00:51:16.030
  • UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE
  • 00:51:16.050 --> 00:51:19.110
  • IT LITERALLY IS LOWERING THE BARRIER TO ACCESS THE
  • 00:51:19.130 --> 00:51:22.290
  • GOOD NEWS OF JESUS.
  • 00:51:23.010 --> 00:51:24.150
  • NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET IN A CAR AND DRIVE WHERE.
  • 00:51:24.170 --> 00:51:27.260
  • YOU CAN ACTUALLY MINISTER AND WITNESS RIGHT THERE
  • 00:51:27.280 --> 00:51:29.240
  • THROUGH YOUR PHONE.
  • 00:51:29.260 --> 00:51:31.290
  • SO IT'S NOT SOMETHING TO FEAR.
  • 00:51:32.010 --> 00:51:33.240
  • IT'S SOMETHING TO EMBRACE AND SOMETHING TO
  • 00:51:33.260 --> 00:51:36.020
  • CELEBRATE BECAUSE I BELIEVE TECHNOLOGY IS
  • 00:51:36.040 --> 00:51:38.180
  • WHAT GOD IS USING IN THIS DAY AND AGE.
  • 00:51:38.200 --> 00:51:40.130
  • - LET'S MOVE INTO WHAT GOD HAS REALLY ALREADY
  • 00:51:40.150 --> 00:51:42.280
  • START AND THE BUILD ON THAT.
  • 00:51:43.000 --> 00:51:45.140
  • BUT AGAIN, YOU KIND OF CHANGED A LITTLE BIT OF
  • 00:51:45.160 --> 00:51:50.120
  • THE PARADIGM IN MY MIND WHEN I WAS SITTING HERE
  • 00:51:50.140 --> 00:51:52.220
  • THINKING THAT I FORGOT THAT CODERS NEED TO BE
  • 00:51:52.240 --> 00:51:56.110
  • KIND OF ARTISTS, TOO; THAT THERE IS CODING
  • 00:51:56.130 --> 00:52:01.090
  • CONCERNING CHARACTERS AND ALL THIS KIND OF STUFF.
  • 00:52:01.110 --> 00:52:04.090
  • SO IT'S NOT LIKE YOU JUST NEED SOME KIND OF A TOTAL
  • 00:52:04.110 --> 00:52:07.170
  • MATH PERSON THAT CAN'T DRAW ANYTHING
  • 00:52:07.190 --> 00:52:10.160
  • BUT STICK FIGURES.
  • 00:52:10.180 --> 00:52:12.150
  • THERE'S A NEED FOR BOTH OF THAT.
  • 00:52:12.170 --> 00:52:15.020
  • BUT IN GENERAL, WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN GOD ALREADY
  • 00:52:15.040 --> 00:52:19.020
  • CRACKING THE DOOR OPEN WITH WHAT'S HAPPENING
  • 00:52:19.040 --> 00:52:22.020
  • INSIDE OF THIS TECH AREA?
  • 00:52:22.040 --> 00:52:24.080
  • - IT'S REALLY EXCITING, AND ONE OF THE THINGS --
  • 00:52:24.100 --> 00:52:26.200
  • I REMEMBER WHEN CHRIS AND I WERE STILL TALKING
  • 00:52:26.220 --> 00:52:28.190
  • ABOUT BUILDING THIS SCHOOL, I WAS STILL IN
  • 00:52:28.210 --> 00:52:30.190
  • OKLAHOMA CITY, AND I REMEMBER SITTING IN A
  • 00:52:30.210 --> 00:52:33.010
  • TARGET PARKING LOT, AND GOD PUTTING THIS VISION
  • 00:52:33.030 --> 00:52:36.010
  • ON MY HEART THAT WE WOULD HAVE CODERS WHO WOULD
  • 00:52:36.030 --> 00:52:38.270
  • PRAY HOLY SPIRIT OVER EVERYTHING THAT THEY AND
  • 00:52:38.290 --> 00:52:41.220
  • WOULD REACH PEOPLE, AND IT WOULD IMPACT THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:52:41.240 --> 00:52:46.170
  • SO NOT TOO LONG AFTER THAT, WHEN WE STARTED THE
  • 00:52:46.190 --> 00:52:49.030
  • SCHOOL, HAD ONE OF THE LEADING, THEY CALL HER
  • 00:52:49.050 --> 00:52:54.140
  • THE "A.I. PHILOSOPHER" AT GOOGLE, TALKED TO ME,
  • 00:52:54.160 --> 00:52:58.080
  • AND SHE'S A GENIUS.
  • 00:52:58.100 --> 00:53:00.210
  • SHE'S ALSO A MUSICAL ARTIST AND IS JUST
  • 00:53:00.230 --> 00:53:02.260
  • A CREATIVE GENIUS.
  • 00:53:02.280 --> 00:53:04.260
  • AND SHE'S LITERALLY WORKING IN GOOGLE BRAIN
  • 00:53:04.280 --> 00:53:07.170
  • RIGHT NOW, AND THEIR PROJECT IS HELPING TO
  • 00:53:07.190 --> 00:53:10.190
  • CREATE NEW SOUNDS FOR MUSIC. IT'S PRETTY INTENSE.
  • 00:53:10.210 --> 00:53:14.050
  • - WOW.
  • 00:53:14.070 --> 00:53:15.280
  • - SHE TOLD ME THAT PRAYS OVER
  • 00:53:16.000 --> 00:53:17.160
  • EVERYTHING THAT SHE CODES.
  • 00:53:17.180 --> 00:53:18.270
  • - OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:53:18.290 --> 00:53:20.140
  • - I WAS FIGHTING BACK TEARS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:53:20.160 --> 00:53:22.010
  • WE NEED, AND IT'S NOT LOST ON ME THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:53:22.030 --> 00:53:24.070
  • BOLD BELIEVERS THAT HAVE SAID, YES.
  • 00:53:24.090 --> 00:53:26.270
  • I'M NOT GOING TO RUN AWAY FROM THIS.
  • 00:53:26.290 --> 00:53:28.190
  • I'M GOING TO RUN TOWARD IT, AND I'M GOING TO
  • 00:53:28.210 --> 00:53:30.090
  • BRING THE LOVE OF CHRIST.
  • 00:53:30.110 --> 00:53:31.270
  • I'M GOING TO HONOR MY EMPLOYEE, MY EMPLOYERS,
  • 00:53:31.290 --> 00:53:33.250
  • MY COLLEAGUES, AND THEY'VE EARNED THE TRUST
  • 00:53:33.270 --> 00:53:36.180
  • JUST LIKE NONA HAS.
  • 00:53:36.200 --> 00:53:38.070
  • IF YOU SEE NONA -- THAT WAS ONE OF THE BIG TAKE
  • 00:53:38.090 --> 00:53:40.290
  • AWAYS WHEN WE WERE AT FACEBOOK, JUST HOW MUCH
  • 00:53:41.010 --> 00:53:43.050
  • THAT THEY LOVED YOU AND HOW MUCH THEY RELIED ON
  • 00:53:43.070 --> 00:53:45.260
  • YOUR INSIGHT.
  • 00:53:45.280 --> 00:53:48.070
  • AND I THINK EVEN CHERYL SAID, I WISH I
  • 00:53:48.090 --> 00:53:50.160
  • HAD YOUR JOB, SOMETIMES.
  • 00:53:50.180 --> 00:53:52.080
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:53:52.100 --> 00:53:53.270
  • - I TOLD HER, I'LL PUT YOU THROUGH AN INTERVIEW,
  • 00:53:53.290 --> 00:53:55.210
  • AND WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:53:55.230 --> 00:53:56.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:53:57.000 --> 00:53:58.170
  • - SO IT BRINGS ME A LOT OF HOPE, AND THERE IS A
  • 00:53:58.190 --> 00:54:00.090
  • GROWING NETWORK OF BELIEVERS IN SILICON
  • 00:54:00.110 --> 00:54:01.290
  • VALLEY, AT FACEBOOK, AT AMAZON, AT APPLE AND
  • 00:54:02.010 --> 00:54:04.080
  • GOOGLE, AND THEY'RE DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY,
  • 00:54:04.100 --> 00:54:07.000
  • AND THEY'VE OPENED DOORS FOR US.
  • 00:54:07.020 --> 00:54:09.060
  • SO I DON'T WANT TO LOOK BACK 50 YEARS FROM NOW
  • 00:54:09.080 --> 00:54:11.130
  • AND SAY, REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD THAT OPEN DOOR?
  • 00:54:11.150 --> 00:54:13.210
  • BECAUSE SPIRITUALITY IS ACTUALLY A HUGE CURIOSITY
  • 00:54:13.230 --> 00:54:17.010
  • IN SILICON VALLEY RIGHT NOW, AND WE JUST WANT TO
  • 00:54:17.030 --> 00:54:20.010
  • HAVE PEOPLE ENCOUNTER THE LOVE OF CHRIST BECAUSE
  • 00:54:20.030 --> 00:54:22.190
  • THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:54:22.210 --> 00:54:24.140
  • - AND CAN I JUST SAY JUST SUPER QUICK, I THINK
  • 00:54:24.160 --> 00:54:26.180
  • THE FACT THAT MY JOB EVEN EXISTS OFTEN SHOCKS
  • 00:54:26.200 --> 00:54:29.230
  • PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE IS THIS PERCEPTION THAT
  • 00:54:29.250 --> 00:54:33.190
  • FACEBOOK IS JUST SO NOT RELIGIOUS OR
  • 00:54:33.210 --> 00:54:35.180
  • SPIRITUAL OR ANYTHING.
  • 00:54:35.200 --> 00:54:37.080
  • - OR ANTI-GOD OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:54:37.100 --> 00:54:38.270
  • - AND I TELL PEOPLE IT'S SO NOT TRUE.
  • 00:54:38.290 --> 00:54:40.290
  • SO IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE WHEN THEY CALLED ME, THEY
  • 00:54:41.010 --> 00:54:43.280
  • KNEW I WAS A PREACHER.
  • 00:54:44.000 --> 00:54:45.110
  • THEY KNEW I WAS IN MINISTRY.
  • 00:54:45.130 --> 00:54:46.250
  • THEY DIDN'T ASK ME TO DO THIS IN SPITE OF THAT.
  • 00:54:46.270 --> 00:54:49.070
  • THEY ASKED ME TO DO IT BECAUSE OF THAT.
  • 00:54:49.090 --> 00:54:51.010
  • - SO GOOD.
  • 00:54:51.030 --> 00:54:52.260
  • - AND THEY'VE GIVEN YOU THE FREEDOM TO GROW THAT,
  • 00:54:52.280 --> 00:54:54.200
  • WHICH I THINK IS SO COOL.
  • 00:54:54.220 --> 00:54:56.110
  • - OKAY, I ALSO WANT TO MENTION NONA'S
  • 00:54:56.130 --> 00:54:59.290
  • BOOK "SUCCESS FROM THE INSIDE OUT".
  • 00:55:00.030 --> 00:55:03.130
  • I THINK THAT'S KIND OF ALMOST PARALLELING THE
  • 00:55:03.150 --> 00:55:06.240
  • DISCUSSION THAT WE'RE HAVING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:55:06.260 --> 00:55:09.090
  • CODING REALLY FORMS THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT WE USE.
  • 00:55:09.110 --> 00:55:15.210
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:55:15.230 --> 00:55:17.170
  • IN YOUR BOOK, NONA, WHAT IS YOUR CONCEPT OF THIS?
  • 00:55:17.190 --> 00:55:20.230
  • AND IN A NUTSHELL FOR THOSE THAT ARE GOING TO
  • 00:55:20.250 --> 00:55:22.200
  • AMAZON TO BUY IT.
  • 00:55:22.220 --> 00:55:24.250
  • - THANK YOU, SO SUPER BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:55:24.270 --> 00:55:27.250
  • SHARE THIS MESSAGE WITH THE WORLD.
  • 00:55:27.270 --> 00:55:30.010
  • MANY PEOPLE, THEY LOOK AT ME, THEY LOOK AT ALL OF
  • 00:55:30.030 --> 00:55:32.270
  • US, AND WHAT THEY SEE IS THE SUCCESS.
  • 00:55:32.290 --> 00:55:35.260
  • THEY SEE THE TRIPS.
  • 00:55:35.280 --> 00:55:38.160
  • THEY SEE BEING ON TV, BUT THEY DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:55:38.180 --> 00:55:42.050
  • THAT BEHIND THAT SUCCESS IS A STORY.
  • 00:55:42.070 --> 00:55:44.290
  • AND SO WHAT I'M BASICALLY SHARING WITH THEM IS I AM
  • 00:55:45.010 --> 00:55:48.130
  • A SURVIVOR OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE.
  • 00:55:48.150 --> 00:55:50.070
  • FOR MANY, MANY YEARS AS A CHILD, I WAS SUBJECTED TO
  • 00:55:50.090 --> 00:55:53.180
  • SOME SERIOUS TRAUMA, AND IT SHOWED UP IN MY LIFE
  • 00:55:53.200 --> 00:55:58.000
  • AND IN MY CAREER.
  • 00:55:58.020 --> 00:56:00.070
  • SO WHAT I'M TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE SEE IS THAT
  • 00:56:00.090 --> 00:56:02.190
  • FAITH IN GOD WHAT HELPED HEAL ME, BUT SUCCESS
  • 00:56:02.210 --> 00:56:05.040
  • BEGINS WITHIN. A LOT OF TIMES WE ASPIRE FOR THE PHYSICAL
  • 00:56:05.060 --> 00:56:07.270
  • TRAPPINGS OF SUCCESS, BUT THOSE PHYSICAL TRAPPINGS
  • 00:56:07.290 --> 00:56:13.000
  • CAN ACTUALLY TRAP YOU IF, IN FACT, YOU HAVE NOT
  • 00:56:13.020 --> 00:56:15.090
  • HEALED FROM WITHIN.
  • 00:56:15.110 --> 00:56:17.010
  • - SO GOOD.
  • 00:56:17.030 --> 00:56:18.190
  • - SO I'M JUST EXCITED TO RELEASE THIS MESSAGE.
  • 00:56:18.210 --> 00:56:20.010

  • - AND OUR FRIENDS AT AMAZON CAN GET
  • 00:56:21.230 --> 00:56:23.170
  • THIS BOOK OUT TO YOU.
  • 00:56:23.190 --> 00:56:25.050
  • JUST GO TO THE INFORMATION ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:56:25.070 --> 00:56:26.180
  • NONA, FINAL THOUGHTS?
  • 00:56:26.200 --> 00:56:28.190
  • - I ALWAYS LIKE TO JUST MAKE SURE PEOPLE
  • 00:56:28.210 --> 00:56:31.160
  • UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BROADCAST AND SOCIAL.
  • 00:56:31.180 --> 00:56:34.250
  • AND MY FINAL THOUGHT HERE IS SIMPLY THAT SOCIAL
  • 00:56:34.270 --> 00:56:37.220
  • TECHNOLOGY GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A
  • 00:56:37.240 --> 00:56:40.110
  • CONVERSATION WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:56:40.130 --> 00:56:42.100
  • SO WHETHER YOU GET A JOB AS A CEO, CFO, CTO OR
  • 00:56:42.120 --> 00:56:45.200
  • NOT, YOU CAN USE THESE TOOLS IN ORDER TO HELP
  • 00:56:45.220 --> 00:56:50.250
  • OTHER PEOPLE DISCOVER THEIR PURPOSE WHILE
  • 00:56:50.270 --> 00:56:52.230
  • YOU'RE DISCOVERING YOURS.
  • 00:56:52.250 --> 00:56:54.150
  • SO I HOPE THAT THROUGH THIS CONVERSATION, PEOPLE
  • 00:56:54.170 --> 00:56:57.000
  • WILL HAVE BEEN INSPIRED TO RECOGNIZE THAT NO
  • 00:56:57.020 --> 00:56:59.160
