1) To Understand Millennials, What if we All Read this Free Excerpt:

What if our entire Brigada family went to this link and read just the first chapter of the book, “Millennials and the Mission of God, A Prophetic Dialogue” by Andrew F. Bush and Carolyn C. Wason. Then, after reading, what if we commented our take on the free excerpt (pages 1-19). (Some of us might actually order the whole book!) Once we’re done, maybe we’ll have some helpful dialogue to understand not only how to relate to this young and daring generation, but how to help them change the world in which we live. : ) Will you accept the dare?

4) There’s a 50/50 Chance Your Millennial Friends Won’t Share Christ

Why? Because it would just… be… WRONG to do so. At least that’s what a new Barna poll found. In spite of feeling equipped to do so, nearly half of them won’t – because they think it’s wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith. Sounds like they grew up watching Star Trek re-runs and they’re afraid of violating the “Prime Directive” or something. See the Barna summary here…

Not sure how we fix this. Somehow, though, if we’re going to win the world with the help of the upcoming generations, we’ll have to remind them that Jesus gave a prime directive too. And that He’s the one who made them. (Thanks for pointing us to a new story about this, Tim!)

 

1) A Brilliant Way To Engage Millennials?

While some North American agencies struggle to find missionaries, Commission To Every Nation is steadily growing. They don’t advertise or recruit but regularly have applicants calling to apply. A new book by the founder explains what they do differently. Check it out and decide for yourself – is this a new wave in missions, a way to finally engage millennials, or is it just plain crazy? It’s available on Amazon:
