A Biblical Look at Generational Thinking

Description

‘Generations’ are frequently referenced in mission and church growth strategies. From various quarters we are advised distinctively to target evangelism, worship, preaching and teaching at Boomers, X-ers, Millennials, and now, ‘Gen-Z’ or ‘i-Gen’. These terms have some cultural significance, but too often those who apply them in a Christian context fail to subject them to adequate biblical and theological interpretation. This talk builds on 15 years of research and publication to offer a fresh perspective on generations, church, and mission.
