5 Ways to Bring Millennials Back to Church


Credit :

Millennial Pastor Matt Chewning of Netcast Church in Beverly, Massachusetts, believes the younger generation doesn't want to just attend church so that people can preach to them. They want to feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves.

"They're not content with just sitting in a pew or just attending," the pastor told CBN last year. "They want to be a part of something, they want to take ownership, they want to be given responsibility. I think the more we're able to involve our generation, the more excited our generation is about the mission of God."

Sheard believes young people will pay more attention to messages in church if they teach young adults about God in a conversational and engaging way.

"I've learned this generation enjoys teaching more than talking at them or preaching at them. They like more conversational presentation. Don't tell me and talk to me with the manner of, 'don't touch the soap because I said so,'" she told CP. "This generation is going to touch the soap because why are you saying no to it. Don't just tell me not to touch it."

Simply put, Sheard believes people need to know "why do I need to know your God?"

If people can draw millennials into church, Jakes Roberts believes her generation can experience something greater than any event they've ever been to.

"What I can say is when you're in a room of believers who have come together with one sole mission and one sole purpose, it's better than any football game or any basketball game that you'd ever go to," she said.
