Over time, consensus on central beliefs has waned, and younger generations are now inheriting this new moral landscape. Though still in a formative stage of life, the leading edge of Gen Z (along with Millennials) holds some notably different views on a range of moral, social and political issues.
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.
