8 Global Game-changing Trends

October 15, 2014 — 3 Comments

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:

  1. Cloud computing
  2. Biotech
  3. Globally connected economies and markets
  4. Wealth gap/income disparity
  5. Mobile device as primary personal all-in-one communication/info tool
  6. Shift from hierarchy -> networking model in every institutional form (governments, education, non-profits, Forbes 500 corporations)
  7. Terrorism and extremism’s violence as a norm
  8. Spiritual revival and awakening as people turn to God for answers to 1-7 above

What’s on your list?
