Media expert Phil Cooke will speak this Thursday on how Christians can convey their faith in a culture that pins sleeping cats at one moment and watches a viral video next.
Vetted by the ORU Christian Worldview Committee, Cooke brings an expansive knowledge of branding, advertising, filmmaking and faith to his lecture “The Gospel, Pop Culture and The Digital Future: Sharing Our Faith with the Most Distracted Generation in History.”
His Burbank, California-based company, Cooke Pictures, develops media for nonprofit organizations and world leaders.
He has appeared as a source on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News and blogs for Huffington Post. His books include “Jolt!: Get the Jump on a World That’s Constantly Changing,” “One Big Thing: Discovering What You Were Born to Do” and his newest book “Unique: Telling Your Story in the Age of Brands and Social Media.”
Cooke’s lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in Christ’s Chapel. It is free and open to the public.
