Product Description

Understanding generational differences is a key to effective ministry in a multigenerational church. Too many churches and parachurch organizations know too little about the similarities and differences among the three largest generations that make up the American populace today, and the church often suffers because of it. Effective Generational Ministry offers students and practitioners cutting-edge research and biblical analysis of Boomers (1946-1964), GenXers (1965-1981), and Millennials (1982-2001) so churches can minister more effectively within and across generational lines.

The authors, one an expert on generational differences and the other a respected New Testament scholar, represent different generations and areas of expertise. Effective Generational Ministry explores key characteristics of each generation based on empirical research, provides biblical-theological analysis of generational attributes, and offers specific suggestions for ministry with and for each generation. The book also provides proven examples of intergenerational ministry.
