In this session, Carl’s passion for reaching the world for Christ is evident. He has traveled to many places, attending events where many Christians would not want to go, hoping to “reach some” with the gospel, as the Bible tells us to do. He is known for his excellent research and documentation in his works, but what is most impressive is his eagerness to speak to such groups as Mormons, or at a witch’s coven, as well as to New Agers gatherings, Burning Man attendees, and other events where many would never want to tread.
Carl Teichrib is a researcher, writer, and lecturer focusing on the paradigm shift sweeping the Western world, including the challenges and opportunities faced by Christians. Over the years he has attended a range of internationally significant political, religious, and social events in his quest to understand the historical and contemporary forces of transformation – including the Parliament of the Worlds Religions, Burning Man, and the United Nations Millennium Forum.
Since the mid-1990s, Carl’s research has been utilized by numerous authors, media hosts and documentary producers, pastors, professors and students, and interested lay people. From 2007 until the end of 2015, he edited a monthly web-based magazine, Forcing Change, documenting and detailing the worldview revolution underway – points of pressure, forces of change.
He frequently speaks to church groups, in conference settings, and occasionally teaches a modular course on Secular/Pagan Trends at Millar College of the Bible.
Carl’s biases are transparent: he embraces an evangelical Christian perspective, is pro-liberty versus politically imposed equality, pro-individualistic versus consensus collectivism, and pro-free market.
