I Can’t Figure Out Millennials: 3 Reasons to Stay Connected
Steven A. Hitz
By Steven A. Hitz, Launching Leaders Worldwide
In a conversation recently with one of my friends who works with pastors and religious leaders to engage Millennials (young adults), a pastor said, “I can’t figure them out, I’m done with em.”
“Really?” our friend said in reply. “You’re just gonna give up on connecting to 77 million people?”
I found this conversation very intriguing. I wonder how many faith group leaders feel the same way, that their ability to connect to 20- to 30-somethings is difficult and perhaps the juice isn’t worth the squeeze.
I am fully aware that many in the Boomer era (for example) have mischaracterized the Millennials and are at odds with their lifestyles and practices. But I celebrate this wonderful generation, and have determined that any lack of positive connection is due to an inability to learn, love, and appreciate them.
