1). Blog Entry: Leader Corner - Generations
Most of us are probably involved in ministry to students, whether teens or kids. But even ministry to students needs to consider how to minister appropriately across the generations, when considering the wide ranges of ages in our groups as well as working with parents and families in the church. One of the more challenging aspects of pastoring is leading a church full of several generations, and helping them all move forward in Christ together. Here's a snapshot of the many generations that should be alive in every church, according to Jolene Cassellius Erlacher in her book, Millenials in Ministry:
Silents - 20s-40s - hard working and loyal
Boomers - 40s-60s - optimistic and confident
Xers - 60s-70s - independent and realistic
Millennials - 80s-90s - protected and driven
Z's - 2000 and up - documented and pessimistic
