Reaching Millennials: A Book Review

About The Book:

A Better Way to Reach Millennials With the Gospel
There's a reason you see fewer and fewer Millennials in your church. Typical evangelism methods often drive them away. People born between 1978 and 1998 have a different mindset than previous generations. But as nationally known church consultant David Stark shares, there are creative, biblical ways to engage Millennials outside the church, even those with negative views of Christianity.

In Reaching Millennials, you will learn how to
· Anticipate and overcome common barriers to faith
· Build trust and openness in genuine, welcomed ways 
· Plan events that attract Millennials and energize your own people
· And much more!

Based on principles that built the church of the New Testament, Stark shows how any congregation today--large or small, established or new--can share God's love with a spiritually hungry generation.

My Review:

Each generation has its highs and lows, ideas and ways of life that work for them. But generations before and after do not always understand these. That is where the book, Reaching Millennials comes in. It walks the reader through what a Millennial is and how we can reach them where they are at, for Jesus. It is well written and organized and was really easy to read. It is a quick read but has a ton of information that one could go back and read repeatedly and get something new out of it in subsequent readings. A great resource for all church ministrys that reach millennials like Young Adult ministry's, for example. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase Reaching Millennials at your favorite Christian book retailer from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group
