Did you Know?
- More than 80 million Millennials worldwide represent a collective $170 billion in purchase power.
- Millennials want to create a positive impact on their community and the world through their work.
- Millennials will make up roughly 50% of the US workforce in 2020 and 75% of the global workforce by 2030.
And it may be too soon to tell. The legacy of Millennials, so new to this world and its conflicts, maybe how they influence the way the rest of the world engages with each other, including their cultural guidance to the generations that follow.
Where people just one generation before had to physically travel to another country to experience its culture, Millennials need only to Skype.
In some cultures, technology has skipped generations; in Sub-Saharan Africa, for example, parents were barely exposed to television before their children had access to phones that instantly connected them to the world. In fact, the internet is more available than electricity in these countries.
In the end, it isn’t the available information that will direct global change, but the conscious effort of Millennials to use their cultural values to translate, unpack, and embed it into their daily lives.
Wait, there’s more:
Millennials (today’s 18- to 30-year-olds) are leaving the Church in record numbers … and they’re not returning. Of course, this is far from new information. In the past decade, Christian research experts
Millennials are looking for authenticity. Unfortunately, a lot of churches today are striving to win over young adults by being relevant. Consider what Leadership Journal Managing Editor Drew Dyck identifies as the potential point of connection:
“Millennials have a dim view of the church. They are highly skeptical of religion. Yet they are still thirsty for transcendence.
But when we portray God as a cosmic buddy, we lose them (they have enough friends). When we tell them that God will give them a better marriage and family, it’s white noise (they’re delaying marriage and kids or forgoing them altogether). When we tell them they’re special, we’re merely echoing what educators, coaches, and parents have told them their whole lives. But when we present a ravishing vision of a loving and holy God, it just might get their attention and capture their hearts as well”
