Reaching Millennials Through Social Media

According to Dr. Thom Rainer, CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources, a shocking trend is emerging among the Millennial Generation in America, those born 1980-2000. Estimates are that a mere 15% identify themselves as Christian! That translates to only 10 million out of a massive population of 80 million.

Only 13 percent of the Millennial Generation rank spiritual matters as important to them. They are not necessarily angry at the church. Millennials are just indifferent, as they view the church as basically irrelevant, and not meaningful to their day-to-day lives.

In today’s Digital Age, the communications media of choice of the Millennial Generation is, without doubt, social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, et al). As we seek to carry out the Great Commission with which Jesus has charged us (Matthew 28:19-20), social media provides  a fantastic tool to reach the Millennial Generation, and help to reverse this trend!

Until next time, remember, you can do all things through Christ Jesus!

God Bless,

Kenneth Lillard
