Welcoming the Millennials

Is your church filled with people in their early 20’s? Here is a must read from Fast Company about the generation called the millennials.

The latest generation to join the mix is disruptive not only because of its size but because of its attitudes. Speak to enough intergenerational experts who study such things (and we spoke to more than a dozen of them), and you begin to get the picture: Millennials aren’t interested in the financial success that drove the boomers or the independence that has marked the gen-Xers, but in careers that are personalized.

One bit of good news for churches.  As millennials realize many of their dreams will not be met by their jobs, there is an opportunity for churches to use their gifts for the work of the ministry.  What better place to find meaning/purpose than in the advancement of the gospel?
