What are the top global trends that will influence your life, work, or ministry for the next several years?
Recently a colleague asked me that question. As I reflect on my continuous diet of news, research, and reading, here are my top 8 Global Game-changers:
- Cloud computing
- Globally connected economies and markets
- Wealth gap/income disparity
- Mobile device as primary personal all-in-one communication/info tool
- Shift from hierarchy -> networking model in every institutional form (governments, education, non-profits, Forbes 500 corporations)
- Terrorism and extremism’s violence as a norm
- Spiritual revival and awakening as people turn to God for answers to 1-7 above
What’s on your list?
