#MILLENNIALMONDAY Purpose and Plans for 2016

Why Millennials

What is #MillennialMonday?

#MillennialMonday is the voice of the progressive, conservative and the skeptic – it’s the voice of men and women who reveal their doubts, dreams and declarations about life, church and the world.

Why focus on millennials?

The majority of the church is centered on traditional; however, the majority of millennials are marching to a different drum – they’re wrestling with injustice and seeking to find  resolutions to the needs throughout the globe. The’re delaying marriage, they’re starting nonprofits, they’re traveling the world and seeking out ways to serve strangers. Barna Research suggests:

The majority of unchurched individuals have firsthand experience with one or more Christian churches and, based on that sampling, have decided they can better use their time in other ways. This fact should motivate us to examine how our local church looks in the eyes of the de-churched and consider making appropriate changes – not for the sake of enhancing attendance numbers but to address the possibility that we do not always behave like the church Christ died for.

These men and women are choosing to look like Christ – and this sometimes can look vastly different than the traditional church.
