This week, Jess Rainer joins us as we discuss Millennials, the church, and culture. As we state in the book, Millennials value education, tarry to marry, and reflect diversity. They also are a hopeful generation, a relational generation, a generation of learners, and a less religious generation. The future of the church in the 21st century will be shaped by Millennials and our response to this generation as a whole.

Listener Question

Horace asks: What are the current trends that will impact the church today that we need to focus on?

    I totally agree with the statement made that even though only 15% of the Millennials are Christians, they could have a greater impact because they are sold out and committed to do something great. They have the advantage over the other Millennials because they have the Holy Spirit within them. I would rather have a few sold out leaders than a plethora of marginally interested people on my team. Thank you for the great insight into this generation.
