The Church and the Digital Generation

A generation born between 1995 and 2011, open with their fears, passions, and formerly taboo topics such as sexuality and mental health. A generation who grew up during the technology boom and spent most of their adolescence online. A generation who is candid with their thoughts, inclusive, and outspoken.

January 20, 2009: Barack Obama Sworn in as President

April, 2010: Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

A generation to learn from.

Join us for a free webinar series where those from Gen Z and those who work with Gen Z come together to talk about what this generation needs as it grows up in the church. Some of the questions we will be discussing are:

  • “How is Gen Z different than other generations?”
  • “How do you think the pandemic has affected young people?”
  • “What issues do you see young people talking about? Where can you speak truth into those issues?”

Created and moderated by DCE Cassie Moore.
