What makes Gen Z different from previous generations is their spirit and belief in dreaming big. Although many would say that's a rather nebulous, abstract quality - for Gen Z it's their wiring. They want to be a part of an organization that has a big and fast-moving mission that is changing the world in profound ways. More importantly, they want to know their dreams are respected and a part of your churches embrace.
So, one of the obvious questions for many churches is how does our church culture and mission align with the spirit, tempo, and boldness of the dream-big Gen Z's? Frankly, there are many churches that Gen Z could not see themselves a part of because their mission impact is not as dynamic and alive as Gen Z's expect it to be. Right or wrong, Gen Z's want to be a part of a mission that is BIG and making impact right now! It's a bold reality that Gen Z's have a narrowed focus on potential churches they'll embrace and invest in.
OPPORTUNITY FOR CHURCHES TO DREAM BIG
This movement of dreaming big and expecting more impact is an opportunity for churches to rethink and get on board the movement. We're not talking about chasing a fad, we're talking about embracing God's mission for your church with more passion, more risk-taking, bigger-than-ever hopes, and doing church without getting in the way of what God can do.
START A NEW CHAPTER MOTIVATED BY GEN Z's
If you want to reach Millennials and Gen Z's it's time to step back and rethink the mission, dreams, tempo, and messaging of your church. Are you playing it safe in those areas or have you changed with the changing times by not placing any limits on what God can do through your church and its people.
