If you could blend C.S. Lewis with MTV, the result would be Axis.
Axis creatively teaches a post-literate generation via the medium of current popular culture. In the midst of today's often confusing marketplace of ideas, we interview different worldviews and narratives by peering through the lens of media and asking the question: Does the Gospel of Jesus stand firm when compared to other "gospels" presented by the world? Our speaking teams are intentionally relational and exist to awaken the next generation and resource their parents to follow Jesus. Axis exists at the intersection of ideas, media, and generations.
We leverage technology. We are insanely visual. We learn students' names. We encourage underage thinking. We move students from apathy to action.
