Listen to The Christian Sportsman radio show with Derryck McLuhan http://www.blogtalkradio.com/the-christian-sportsman/2014/07/14/christian-sportsman-radio-show-with-derryck-mcluhan
Many among America’s Millennial generation, “Twenty-Somethings”, have real questions about their search to know our Creator and the purpose of their lives in the context of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Oftentimes their questions are not answered, or even addressed within the traditional church program setting. So they are leaving the organized church at the rate of 2.5-3 million per year.
Based on extensive surveys, the Barna Group estimates that 80% of Millennials raised in church will be “disengaged” by the time they are 29. Some seek genuine Christian community elsewhere, but many leave their faith altogether. The most commonly proposed solution is to somehow entice these “Digital Reactionaries” back into church, but that is not effective. Baby-Boomer parents often find it difficult to communicate with their Millennial children, and “connecting” with them in the typical church format is even more elusive. So how do we reach this wandering generation before it’s too late?
This is the question that Derryck McLuhan answers. Derryck is an authentic, accepting voice to Millennials, and has a gift for communicating tough truth with tough love in a way this new generation responds to. He has lived and ministered on four Continents, has mentored more than 300 pastors, trained 2000 missionaries, and established leadership development centers in several countries.
The CenterEdge (www.centeredge.org) is a gathering place for Millennials who are thirsty for Jesus, but disillusioned with church. It is an innovative movement that speaks Millennial-eze, and is building an outpost right in the middle of the primary Millennial hangout – cyberspace. The organization is partnering with CSF to serve as a resource for our members who want to reach their Millennial children, while CSF provides The CenterEdge with outreach and training opportunities.
In my own family, my 7 Millennial children do not want to be force-fed the Christian faith that I have learned and accepted over the years. Benjamin (21), for example, wants to start with a clean slate and build his own beliefs based on God’s revelation of unconditional love and acceptance. And I now support him! God’s grace is always previous to our response! Richard Jordan – President, CSF, Int’l.
So join us on August 24th for this inspiring event!
