“Millennials” are the generation born after 1980. Skeptics have long argued that Millennials put social justice above their faith and are leaving the Church in droves. But a Barna Research Group study in the USA shows Millennials are more active at sharing the Gospel than any other generation.
“Nearly one out of every ten students involved with InterVarsity came to faith while they were at college,” says Greg Jao. InterVarsity students are creating an environment on campus “where people are hearing about the faith, are being introduced to Jesus.
We’ve watched a level of excitement about evangelism [rise] that we’ve not seen in recent history.” He adds that conversions on campus over the last 10 years have doubled. “The current generation loves Jesus and wants to share who He is [with] the world; let’s celebrate that truth,” Jao says.
