Effective Cross-Generational Ministry

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 7:34 pm

In fact, we have discovered that the younger the adult, the less interested they are in a smooth presentation. Excellence and professionalism are “performance strategies” that appeal to the late Builders and early Boomers. Among the Busters, however, the keys are relevance, genuineness and authenticity. They are more interested in experiencing a sincere and honest presentation that raises meaningful questions than a polished speech that provides all the answers. Preachers who address the audience without constant reference to notes, and those who do not “hide” behind a pulpit, also seem to generate a more positive response from their listeners.” from The Second Coming of the Church by George Barna
