Many of you know my recent dissertation focused on the difference in how millennial aged and women who are older view women’s ministry. It was a great study, but the information is quickly becoming obsolete. We already need to be focusing on the youngest generation… iGen, for lack of a better term.
I’ve provided a link to a great article by Ashley Chestnut who serves as the Associate Singles 20s/30s Minister at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama. In the article she says ” I encourage you to grab coffee or dinner with some recent college graduates in your church in order to get to know them and to find out what life is like for them. What is important to them? How do they spend their time? What do they consider to be important social and cultural issues? What YouTube channels do they follow? What are their go-to apps? What ideas do they have about women’s ministry? Have an open mind and hear what they have to say.” All great questions and suggestions.
