Reaching Millennials in Your Church
January 4, 2010 1 Comment
Leadership Journal (Summer 2009) did several excellent articles stories on reaching Millennials in your church. Here are the best quotes I read.
“As the Millennial generation replaced Gen X, the time-tested combination of relevant teaching and coll music no longer sufficed. Media-savvy young adults could download all the great teaching and music they wanted for their iPods. Nothing seemed to impress them.”
“Older models of evangelism aimed at leading humans to a reception of God’s grace in Christ by making them aware of their profound and utter sinfulness. A different model might be in order to ‘reach” [Millennials].”
“…20-something ministry leadres say reaching the millennial generation will require mor than playing mainstream music, dimming the lights, and talking about sex. All see deep, genuine community as the crying need and key avenue for commincating and displaying the gospel.”
