Gen. Y and the Future

I've been working on a project for my congregation that involves thinking about the church's ministry not twenty years from now, but 1...2...3...4...and 5 years down the road.  As a part of this, I have been taking a closer look at generational cohorts within our congregation.  I've found these videos on Gen. Y useful in shaping my understanding of the generation just after mine.

I also learned that even though I am a Gen. X member, I am much closer to the cusp of Gen. Y than I thought (according to at least one table of who fits where). As much as I tend to question some of the behaviors among folks in this generation, I do relate to most of the workplace trends in the third video.


  1. Have you read "Generations of Faith"? I just got it, and was so fascinated I read it in one week! (which is very fast for me with a professional development book).

  2. I haven't read it yet. Thanks for the recommendation!
