Gen Z - Youth Culture

Part 1 - Growing Younger. Some churches are good at growing younger. This session will use the Fuller Institute findings in their Growing Younger research to help you think through what core commitments would help your church begin to engage better with younger people.

Part 2 - Gen Z is a term used for those who are currently in their teenage years. YFC has under taken a survey across the UK amongst Gen Z. This session will highlight findings and stimulate thinking around what practices may we have to change or adopt in order to relevantly engage with young people.

Theological reflections

  1. Is the current form of Church able to make disciples going forward?
  2. What do we mean by making disciples? Is our youth work actually making disciples?
  3. What current cultural and societal barriers are there to mission and discipleship? Where are the opportunities?
