Many of you have heard of George Barna, but I dare say you may not know the depth and breadth of of his life experience and accomplishments, and more importantly, his legacy.
As noted by Tim Stafford in Christianity Today, Barna, the Christian community’s most-quoted statistician, “…is to evangelicals what George Gallup is to the larger culture.”
George Barna founded what is now known as the Barna Group in 1984, and built the organization into “a leading marketing research firm focused on the intersection of faith and culture before selling it in 2009.”
Barna currently serves as Executive Director of the American Culture and Faith Institute, which is a “non-partisan, not-for-profit research organization that regularly conducts national surveys to gauge the sentiment and activity of politically conservative, spiritually active Christians in America.”
Barna has written more than 50 books, mostly addressing cultural trends, leadership, spiritual development, and church dynamics. They include New York Times bestsellers and several award-winning books.
He has sold more books based on survey research related to matters of faith than any author in American history.
After graduating summa cum laude from Boston College, Barna earned two Master’s degrees from Rutgers University and has a doctorate from Dallas Baptist University.
George Barna walks the walk of his biblical Christianity, not just living the life, being salt and light, but actively engaging the church and the culture, working to advance the Kingdom.
George has served as faculty for universities and seminaries. He has been a pastor of churches large and small, and a church planter. He speaks at conferences world-wide.
George and his wife of 40 years live in central California.
If you’re a Christian who is interested in the culture you live in, you won’t want to miss this event!
