Trend Watch

Perspective on the buzz

The Millennial generation's been big news lately, as articles, blog posts, and more discuss the dynamics, challenges, and signs of life in the rising generation.

Barna's recently published Millennials Project is a good hub for information and data on them. Be sure to check out "5 Reasons Millennials Stay Connected to Church," a counterpoint to the earlier (and much discussed) Barna piece

Their 5 points are relevant for ministry leaders. Here are the takeaways:

  1. Make room for meaningful relationships.
  2. Teach cultural discernment.
  3. Make reverse mentoring a priority
  4. Embrace the potency of vocational discipleship.
  5. Facilitate connection with Jesus.

Leadership Journal regularly offers perspective and practical wisdom related to the Millennials. Be sure to read these highlights:
