Dr. Barry N. Danylak interviews Lewie Clark of Icon Ministries, What is the Model of Discipleship in the New Testament?
Calgary, AB – November 10, 2021

Most Protestant churches are pastored by married pastors with families, and the Christian home of two parents with children is often regarded as the primary pattern for Christian discipleship. But as we examine discipleship in the New Testament, the model we find is much more dynamic with single adults often leading the way! Lewie Clark is life long single pastor with a passion for the New Testament model of discipleship. Join Dr. Barry Danylak for this webinar interview with Lewie Clark as he opens our eyes to how we need to think differently about discipleship, the church and single adults!

Dr. Barry N. Danylak, How the Sexual Revolution Changed Everything and How to Constructively Respond
Calgary, AB – October 23, 2021

The Sexual Revolution has profoundly changed how Western society perceives personhood, identity, relationships, singleness, and marriage. Understanding what is at the core of the shift in thinking and the assumptions that have brought it about is foundational for constructive engagement with those in our world today. In this webinar Dr. Barry Danylak will briefly sketch the evolution of the revolution, highlight its key points of contrast with a traditional biblical perspective and explore a few ways biblically reflective Christians can pursue constructive interaction in a post-Christian world.

Dr. Barry N. Danylak, The “Gift” of Singleness: What It Is and What It Isn’t!
Calgary, AB – May 29, 2021

The Apostle Paul mentions the term “spiritual gift” in his description of singleness and marriage in 1 Corinthians 7. There is some confusion around what exactly he means using the term. Is simply being single a “spiritual gift”? Is Paul suggesting that marriage is also a “gift”? What about singles who don’t feel “gifted” in their singleness? With a closer look at the text, Dr. Barry Danylak will unpack what Paul means by the term “spiritual gift”, and show what Paul most likely means with the term in reference to singleness. We will then reflect on what his teaching means for how we live today.

Dr. Barry N. Danylak, Singleness and Marriage are Core Gospel Issues: Here’s Why . . .
Calgary, AB – February 27, 20201

The “good news” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the core teaching of the Christian faith that makes it unique from other traditions. The Christian faith is also distinct from many other popular religious traditions in its affirmation of the calling of singleness. While it may seem that one is completely unrelated to the other, in this webinar Dr. Barry Danylak will show how both marriage and singleness testify to the gospel we proclaim as Christians. We will reflect on what is the essence of our humanity and why the Gospel is the source of the only relationship that is both necessary and sufficient to ever ultimately satisfy us.

Dr. Barry N. Danylak: Why Singles Are an Emerging Demographic for the Global Church and How It Must Respond

For the church to thrive in the twenty-first century, it must be consciously aware of the major social shifts in society and stay ahead of the curve by anticipating and responding to changes as they occur.

This webinar will present the global trends and discuss the major reasons that account for this significant demographic shift. The webinar will also discuss what this shift means for the twenty-first century church and how our theology, discipleship, inter-generational ministry practice and outreach must respond to stay ahead of the curve.
