Parents and youth pastors hope to impart a lasting faith to the next generation. In this excerpt from Barna’s Gen Z study, conducted in partnership with Impact 360 Institute, we look at the discipleship interactions that today’s skeptical teens have in the context of two key relationships.
More than any other generation we’ve observed, Gen Z’s expectations are shaped around academic and career success. As millions of teens graduate high school, a new Barna study in partnership with Impact 360 Institute looks at their views on identity, work and the future.
Barna just unveiled a landmark study of Gen Z at a live event (and national webcast) last month in Atlanta. Throughout the event we asked for viewers to submit their own questions about Gen Z. We received an overwhelming response and weren’t able to get to all of them. So we’ve decided to address some of your most common and burning questions about Gen Z right here.
Meet Generation Z: The first truly “post-Christian” generation. Barna conducted a major study to examine the culture, beliefs and motivations shaping young people in the U.S. and found that the percentage of 13- to 18-year-olds who identify as atheist is double that of the general population. In this release from the new report, we take a look at Gen Z’s views on faith, truth and the church.
Over the past year, Barna has worked closely with Impact 360 Institute on a landmark study of Gen Z. Impact 360 works with the next generation—with teenagers and college students—to equip them in biblical worldview and leadership. This new study is a snapshot of the ways Gen Z sees the world and the culture.
