An Invitation to Faith for the Future
Over the last decade and a half, the Barna team has interviewed nearly 100,000 Millennials and Gen Z teens, listening to the stories and experiences of U.S. young people across the religious spectrum. In order to study the first truly global generation and learn what values and perceptions they’re bringing with them into adulthood, we needed a global partner. We combined our research expertise with the international reach of World Vision, the largest Christian humanitarian organization in the world.
For this study alone, Barna conducted more than 15,000 interviews among 18–35-year-olds across 25 countries and in nine different languages, making this the largest research project we’ve ever undertaken. Our team has been analyzing the data for months, thinking deeply with experts, practitioners and young people around the world about what it means for the Church and beyond.
Initial findings on the young adults whom we call The Connected Generation will be released in Faith for the Future a live, free webcast on September 10, 2019. We hope you will join us.
Faith for the Future will feature:
- Insights from the research, covering unique pressures and cultural dynamics facing the connected generation; views of religion, Christianity and factors contributing to church engagement; and how to activate the generation for impact and leadership
- Interviews and commentary from a wide range of voices, including both established and emerging Christian leaders, to help you turn the research into action for your context
- A great opportunity to bring your entire team together to learn and discuss the implications for your church or organization
- Practical solutions, drawn from the results of a three-year study for my new book, Faith for Exiles, about what’s working among resilient disciples
Register today to join us for this live event. Everyone who attends will also receive a free chapter from the global research, available to download after the webcast.
We’re prayerfully anticipating all that God will do around the world as we get to know the connected generation together. See you on September 10!
For the next generation,
President, Barna Group
