Millennials in Mission: Engaging the Next Generation of Collaborative Leaders

The next Generation, Gen Y and Gen Z, are a new type of missionary. They are full of passion, ready to take risks, educated, and uniquely gifted. Unfortunately, misunderstandings frequently lead to Millennials being under-utilized. In this webinar, we will discuss the importance of building and fostering the Millennial Generation.

 

Key Ideas

  1. Generation Y and Z are the largest demographic group in most countries around the world.
  2. Generation Y & Z missionaries are uniquely positioned to reach other Millennials.
  3. They bring many strengths. Unfortunately, generational misunderstandings, under-utilization, and the lack of community result in many leaving the field.
  4. Intentionally utilize Millennials in their areas of gifting, build mentor relationships, and provide opportunities for leadership.
