• Evangelism and the Millennial Generation

millennialsevangelism-01-300x300Millennials (18 to 29 year olds) are the only generation among whom evangelism (faith-sharing practices) rose significantly from 56% in 2010 to 65% in 2013.

As reported in Christianity Today, there is a vigorous level of enthusiasm among born-again evangelicals. Eighty-five percent of believers ages 18 to 29 agree that they have a responsibility to share the gospel with unbelievers, and 69% of those same people feel comfortable sharing their faith.

However, only 25% of them look for ways to share the gospel and 27% of them intentionally build friendships with unbelievers in order to do so.

Overall, the findings are good news for our youth leaders. They suggest that Millennials feel open to sharing their faith and should be responsive to efforts to spread the good news.
