“I am not asking that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world; just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I have also sent them into the world.” —John 17: 15-18
In 2011, Mike and Daniel Blackaby published When Worlds Collide: Stepping Up and Standing Out in an Anti-God Culture (B&H Pub.). The book addressed the alarming rate that young adults are abandoning the church and the Christian faith after they move away for college (as high as 66%).
Jesus commissioned his followers to engage with the world around them, not to hide or isolate themselves from it. Unfortunately, many Christians are being sheltered from worldly philosophies and lack a strong biblical foundation and worldview to stand firm when bombarded by today’s increasingly secular and media-driven culture.
The Collision was launched in 2019 as a ministry of Blackaby Ministries International in order to equip and challenge Christians to collide with their culture for Christ.
