We all know that 2020 was definitely the year to forget. For many it was a year of heartbreak, loss and mourning. For others it was a year of growth and perseverance. I am thankful that we have closed the 2020 chapter and opened a new one here in 2021.
So in looking ahead for 2021, I am needing to update my reading list. I am looking for your recommendations and want to know what must be on my list for 2021 in the following topic areas.
Because People Matter,
Just food for thought-
In Thom and Jess Rainers’ book “The Millennials: Connecting to America’s Largest Generation,” They suggest that the Millennial Generation (those born between 1980-2000) has become the most influential generation. Over 78 millions births occurred between 1980-2000.
What does this mean? This means that people from the ages of 11 years old to 31 years old have surpassed the Baby Boomers and have become the leading influence in America today.
What are you doing to reach this generation? Churches can not afford to miss out on the opportunity to reach this generation. I believe that if we are going to reach the world for Christ, we must start with reaching the Millennial Generation.
