Our generational series continues today as we discuss the struggles and opportunities churches face when reaching younger families.
- To reach younger kids and grow a kids’ ministry, you first have to reach their parents. Third graders can’t drive.
- Outside of prayer, the first thing ew need to do in revitalization is stop blaming others and accept responsibility.
- If there are only a few young families in the church, don’t treat them as a separate class of people in the church.
- Churches must give up the idols of personal preference and comfort.
The eight keys for reaching younger generations we discuss are:
- Abandon the fleeting hope of the silver bullet pastor.
- Abandon the fleeting hope of the silver bullet children or student minister.
- Stop the blame game.
- Connect with the Millennial parents.
- Many Millennials have a missional mindset.
- Seek a short-term transplant from another church.
- Give up the idols of tradition and personal preference.
- Pray. Pray. Then pray again.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
